Joshua, a Pulse reader who has been battling with masturbation for years, even as a married man, decided he needed to stop the habit and seek help from other readers.

He sent in this letter:

"My name is Joshua, a 41-year-old married man with three children. I am married to a lovely wife who satisfy me sexually but I am stuck to masturbation and it is so embarrassing that at my age, an habit I picked up in secondary school over 25 years ago is still taking a hold on my life.

As a kid in all boys' school, living in the boarding house, we indulged in so many things including experimenting with homosexuality but when I was introduced to masturbation, that stuck as the other vices had to give way.

By the time I got into the university and started having sexual relationships with women, I had become addicted to masturbation. It got so bad that I could even masturbate while lectures were ongoing.

It became so bad that I even sought medical assistance but the doctor told me it was not a medical condition and not something to worry about but I think it is more than that. Even with a sexually active wife, I have not been able to stop this embarrassing habit.

I think I am possessed by the spirit of masturbation and need help fast.

Joshua."

The teaser for the day was:
