My ed began about 3 years ago. I was smoking mini cigars and inhaling them(i think this is what caused my ed). After a few months I felt some sharp pains in my penis, some days (not all the time). Then after a few weeks It looked like my penis twisted a little bit. Then about 1 month later I could not keep an erection. I can get an erection easily, but I cannot keep it up. I am looking for a solution but do not want to take viagra or any of the relating pills. Do you know why I have this problem? Please do not say stress or anything, im not stressed, I have money and I work from home in a lucrative field. This may be venous leak or something. I need help this is really hurting me.
Im in my mid 20s
had ed for 3 years now

Erectile dysfunction in young males is most common due to psychological effect but some other causes are Smoking,drug abuse(can cause nerve damage at times,Low testosterone levels,increased Blood sugars,medication effect etc.
Consider visiting an Endocrinologist for evaluation and request for investigations as Complete Blood count,Urine analysis,Testosterone levels etc.
Kindly do not take self medication and meanwhile start taking any Zinc supplement once a day for few months as its deficiency can also contribute to erection problems.
