It is unlikely that you are so addicted to masturbating that it is taking over your life. However, if you feel like ALL you want to do is masturbate ALL the time, and that it is getting in the way of your daily life, then there are things you can do to reduce how often you masturbate. Note that completely stopping masturbating is not only negative, but harmful. It is a normal, human urge to want to have sexual release (e.g., being horny), and masturbation in a perfectly healthy way to go about it. So, definitely don't stop-- i mean, if you do, you're sexually starving yourself. If you masturbate everyday, that's fine. If you do it several times a day, and it's all you want to do, and is getting in the way of life....then you can try doing other things to get your mind off it. Go out, do some homework/studying, take part in some sort of hobby, etc., whatever you want to do to take your mind off things.
If, however, you feel like you might just have some sort of a legitimate addiction to masturbating (in the same way as, say, compulsive gambling, drinking, drugs, etc.), then there is help.. a quick google search helped me find this site:
I am sure that there are good links/contacts listed on that site.
But unless you feel like you are to masturbating, what a chain smoker is to cigarrettes, you might not have a serious problem. It is held that masturbating every day is okay, and that it only becomes an addiction when it interferes with daily life and activities, and it's almost all you think about. Think of it this way: if you like to socially have a few drinks with friends once in a while, you are not an alcoholic...but if you constantly drink to dull the pain/run away from life, are extremely drunk a lot of the time-- in other words, alcohol runs your life, then you are an alcoholic. So how this ties in- people masturbate, it's part of life. If you masturbate every day/every couple days or so, simply for sexual release, you're fine. But when masturbating become a compulsion, or addiction (for different reasons), and is something you do several times a day, whenever you can--and at the expense of other activities, then you might need to seek help.
