Addicted to Masturbating

07/23/2008

Question:

Hello doctor,

My problem is that i have been addicted to masturbating since about 8 years, before that i use to masturbate like every teenagre, two or three times per week, but since about 8 years and i masturbate minimum 2 times per day, some times i reach 7 times per day!!, first i wasn`t worried till i have been into a real sex relation with a grl, i couldn`t have an errection, which was so emabressing, even that i was horney. that was years ago, and in the next time i was having sex i took Viagra Pills, which gave me a good erection, and i gave my grl a really good time, but i couldnt ejaculate for 3 hours till i masturbated!!! .. next time i had sex ( also with viagra ) i stopped masturbating 3 days before it, and guess what !! i was going to ejaculate in the first five minutes !! but i was able to hold it and i really had a nice time .... the problem now is that even with viagra, i have a very week erection .. and i lose control of it many times .. when i am on the top and doing the hard work i always lose my erection!! ... and i can never cum untill i am lying down and my grl on the top of me ( same posotion i have when i masturbate ) .... now i want you to tell me honestly is my week erection going to last with me forever ?? if i stopped masturbating will i gain a hard erection like normal men ?? i am still addicted to masturbating .... i am so afraid of the future ... i am afraid to have sex without taking a viagra to avoid the emabrresment ... tell me everything honestly please .. Thank you
