Hello I'm Andrew. I have come seeking help with this behavior that has become unmanageable. I feel I've squandered valuable time engaging in masturbation; time that could be spent more productively. I live with my girlfriend and I feel that engaging in this behavior has affected my ability to perform and my availability to her. But more importantly, (or at least as importantly)it's made me sluggish, its brought on behavior that is obsessive and somewhat out of my control. I believe that in the past I felt some pride about having such high sexual energy and libido at my age (in my 50's) but instead I now feel a sense of shame and disgust. I want to be more productive with my time as well as feel more in control of myself, at least when it comes to masturbation. This behavior makes me feel tremendous guilt and I feel that I'm wasting so much precious time of my life even engaging in it now and then. Indeed, it's at least once a day for me even now...at this stage of my life. I need help. I need to feel good about myself and take control once again of my life. I've engaged in this behavior for too long without knowing the dangers and the downsides of masterbation. I come with an open mind and with a desire to change and maybe later help others as well. Thank you.
