Dr. Deepak Kumar Soni
Ayurveda
Tips for controlling masturbating: Change your place: If you are used to masturbating in certain places , just change that place. Avoid going to that places. Like if you have bahroom where u masturbate more likely avoid going to it. If you masturbate all the time when you are sleeping alone in your room, try sleeping with someones else room. If you are masturbating with right hand, switch to left hand. You will get a reduced joy and gradually stop masturbating. Avoid seeing pron movies. Porn movies only excites you more. There is not reason to watch porn movies. It distracts you from your studies. Never risk your moral values.
