-Getting rid of masturbation can never happen in a snap. Treatment of every addiction is time dependent as we cannot declare a person free of addiction unless he has not seen any pornographic material or substance for a long period of time. If you are thinking that you can get rid of masturbation addiction overnight then you better be realistic and come up with a long-lasting plan. The quickest time it could take you to get over masturbation addiction is about 15 to 20 days. After thorough research on hundreds of subjects and different types of masturbation addiction, scientists have come up with a three step plan for getting rid of masturbation.
Step 1: Remove all the supporting factors: When we discuss the supporting factors for masturbation addiction, we mean factors such as the environment that allows you the privacy to masturbate and watch pornography, any lotions or lubricants you use for masturbation, etc. By removing all the supporting factors, you make it harder to masturbate and it will eventually stop becoming a habit for you. This is the way to start breaking a masturbation addiction.
Step 2: Distraction at the time of arousal: Even after strictly following the above mentioned protocols, one may still come across a situation that provokes his or her desires. The second step deals with the management of such emergency situations. You will have to distract yourself by either exercising immediately, by calling a friend, or by starting to eat something. However, make sure that you don’t turn your masturbation addiction into a binge eating addiction, of course. Dealing with such emergency situations requires plenty of determination.
Step 3: Persistence. Relapsing back to masturbation addiction is very common. To avoid that, you have to reward yourself at appropriate times. For example, you can reward yourself with a treat every time you avoid masturbation for a period of 10 days. Giving rewards can help you stay off masturbation until you eventually break the habit.
