I don't know if this is what you are looking to hear, but why don't you go to the doctor? It may be embarassing but there are pills out there that lower your sex drive and maybe you could take a low dose of one of those pills and it may help you a lot. I mean, if this is bothersome to you and is causing you problems, then I am sure there is something the doc can do for you. I don't know if counseling will help or not. I really don't know too much about this.

The excitement of doing something different can help replace the urge to masturbate, and you'll have a go-to distraction next time you're tempted.Make a plan for avoiding masturbation during your "go to" times of dayIf you masturbate frequently because you feel lonely, find ways to be as socially engaged as possible. This means that you should join as many clubs or activities as you can, accept and give more invitations to people, and go out of your way to make more friends.

Place a rubber band around your wrist. Every time you get the urge to masturbate, flick the rubber band. When you get the urge to masturbate, quickly engage in an alternative activity. Whether you pick up a book or go to the movies with friends, participate in anything that will successfully distract you from your masturbatory desires.If you have a romantic partner, be open with them about your condition. This should remove any feelings of guilt or shame associated with chronic masturbation, as you will no longer have to hide a "dirty little secret" from your loved one.
