Struggling with Addiction…Please Help!

05 September, 2023
Q Hello aslamalikum please help me...I am addicted to watch pornography and masturbation. I really wanted end this could u please help me?

Answer

In moments of stress, anger, boredom, or depressed feelings, there is a natural reaction to seek some sort of relief and feelings of pleasure. 

Besides the desire to release sexual tension, some people choose to masturbate to feel good and to get rid of these negative feelings. 

It can become a habit and, eventually, an addiction that has many harmful consequences for your physical and mental health and your relationships. 

Try some techniques. Find other alternatives to combat tension and stress.

Spirituality and faith are good sources of peace of mind, as are the techniques of visual imagery.
