I have been masturbating for over 14 years and have been an addict of it i now havr memory problem and many others how to reverse this?

Some handy facts...: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause hair loss or gray hair, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage eyes. ...Read more

It is ultimately more expensive in many cases than suboxone treatment. It is by no means as convenient, and there is a tendency to continually escalate the dose. With suboxone dosage escalation rarely if ever occurs. Suboxone is much more well-tolerated and you don't have to deal with pick ups at a clinic where you are continually exposed to other narcotic addicts.If you were thinking about going on methadone, please consider the option of suboxone. ...Read more
