In brief: Important goal

Any key behavior change, such as shifting to a balanced sexuality, will be more effective when guided by a professional.
A cognitive-behavioral counselor specializing in men's issues & addiction can help you track how excessive masterbation is triggered and reinforced and how competing healthy behaviors (eg social engagement, volunteering, religious service) can break current behavior cycles.
