Masturbation: I understand your concern about masturbation addiction. Please see a therapist to understand your sexual desires, sexual needs, sexual impulses for immediate satisfaction, sexual problems, issues and conflicts in your relationships. Be aware of other addictions, such as alcohol and drugs. Find satisfaction in tour education, work, relationships, and hobbies. Improve your daily functioning.

Support : Masturbation can be necessary and healthy, it is not always an addiction. If it is truly a problem for you find a way to support your desire to stop. Support groups and/or individual therapy can work. There are lots of reasons that people develop masturbation addictions, you need support to find out what's going on with you and to know if you have an addiction. Good luck and best wishes.
