Brief Answer: It is a normal habit with many people,don't worry. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for asking question on health care magic. Masturbation is not a disease. It is normal habit for most men to let go of the sexual energy once a day. At this age it is normal to have thoughts about sex and indulge in self gratification like masturbation. After doing masturbation you should not have guilty feeling. If you sincerely want to abandon this habit take up some physical exercise like gardening, going to a gym or some work which needs physical involvement. You should get tired and feel sleepy. Or divert your mind in reading religious books or any informative books other than sex. Or prepare for some competitive exams so that you are very much preoccupied. So that you can slowly get rid of this habit. Don't remain alone, try to spend more time with family members or friends or engage yourself in some fruitful discussion. Hope this answer will serve your purpose. Please feel free to ask any more queries if required. Take care. Dr.M.V.Subrahmanyam MD;DCH Associate professor of pediatrics
