How can I stop masturbation completely?

Greetings to all doctors. My name is James I have 19 years, I started at 16 to masturbate, I know it is normal that a young perform this practice. The point is that now, I do not want to masturbate, because I do not feel good practicing, because I m already entering young adulthood and I talked to my best friend who is my age and he says he stopped masturbate and how to know that makes me feel bad. The truth is that sometimes I m reading a book, listening to music or doing other activities and how my body is calling me to masturbate. Honestly before I masturbated about 7 to 8 times a month and this year are rare times I ve done as 2 to 3 times per month. The question is: How can I stop masturbation completely? Talk to a sexologist told me to stop eating lots of meat and I started eating more fruits and vegetables, Since the meat produce more male hormones, And it s those hormones which are gathered in my penis is the reason for having the desire to masturbate. I think it really worked because that was when I masturbated 7 or 8 times a month. and now down to 2 or 3 times. But I want to help me, I need something that makes me completely stop masturbation. Thank you for your help. P.S. I have girlfriend

Welcome to HCM.

at this age desire of masterbation is absolutely normal.excessive desire is harmful.

2 to 3 times a month is no harm but helpful to bulit your satisfaction,self confidence and development of your body according to hormonal changes.

Otherwise concentrate your mind in other activity and take good balanced diet that you know better.

Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
Hello Mr James, There are two aspects to your question. One of them is masturbation and the other is how you feel about it. Masturbation, as you know, is a normal phenomenon. But when one starts to think about it most of the time and when normal routine is disturbed because of masturbation, then it becomes a problem.

The solution is to ensure that you do not make masturbation a habit. One should masturbate only when sexually excited. Keeping yourself busy helps as "idle mind is devil's workshop".

Your negative feelings about masturbation are possibly due to influence of your friends and other unreliable sources. It is advisable to stay away from misleading information.
