Masturbating is often described as an act of stimulating one’s sexual organs to the point of achieving an orgasm. This act to some people might be good, but for some it is the exact opposite. Whether you’re a man or woman, masturbation occurs regardless of age. To many people, masturbation can simply just be a source of relief from stress but it sometimes turns into a vice. The effect may lead to other actions such as practicing unsafe sex or worse, rape. However, a lot of people also want to stop masturbation but have difficulty in doing so. This is where professional help and personal motivation come in.
If you are on the road to recovery, then you are on the right path. It is useful to know how masturbation affects the entire brain. Knowledge on the subject will be a useful tool in your transition phase to be free from the grips of masturbation. Go out, exercise, and socialize; for these will keep you busy, thus, forgetting about the act. You might want to think of your well-being and how it affects your family and friends. If you stop thinking about yourself all the time and focus more on those who care about you, there’s a great possibility that you will see the bigger picture. You could also turn to God for help and guidance. Pray and ask for forgiveness, a higher being might just be the answer.
