See a mental health: Professional. Sexual "addictions, " (or paraphilias) like compulsive masturbation, usually reflect some early life trauma, particularly some form of sexual abuse. Such trauma can be treated, but requires a psychiatric team and a commitment to long-term therapy. See your family doctor to start with and get a referral for counseling. Good luck - there is hope and help available.
