You aren't: addicted, you just enjoy it and don't have anything else in your life that's worthwhile. It doesn't cause hair loss and the lazy, weakness, etc. are just other symptoms of your depression, boredom, etc. Get a life. Learn some new skills and begin some new activities. Meet and befriend some new people. There's more to life than just your penis
