Why can't I stay hard?

Patient : I am 29, but Erectile Dysfuntion has plagued me since I was twenty. I have never had sex to completion with a woman in my life, and now that I'm married I'm not the only one who cries over this. I can get hard sometimes but I can't stay hard. I masturbated multiple time almost every day from when I was thirteen until a few days ago. Usually I never reach full erection while masturbating, even through orgasm. I got SUPER hard yesterday and I thought the problem was solved by the self-touching moratorium, but, as I was about to put it in my wife today, unsolvable deflation. I've tried Viagra, something else, and not touching myself. I'm young and I'm missing out on life. Help me!
