Hi, I think it's safe to say that I am addicted to masturbating (mostly do to online **********y). I have been doing it since I was 14 and I am 18 now. On and off throughout that time I have gone from once or twice a day to once a week. Currently though the frequency is about everyday. I have done alot of research and although it is embarassing, i really need some help. While researching I found that alot of people say it is good and there is nothing wrong with it but I want to stop now and don't think I can without some help. I have tried to stop but just can't alone. I want to make this a thing of the past and move on with my life. I have been wondering if there is any long term problems from masturbation? People say there is none but I would just like some confirmation of that. Does frequent ejaculation reduce sperm count? Also is there possiblity of erectile dysfunction? Zinc... would this cause a zinc deficeincy? I know this is long but i really need some help in stopping this addiction and problem. It has been hard for me to make myself do even this... But I feel it is long overdue.
Thanks to all who can shed some wisdom on this topic.
-Ashamed of what has become of me.
