Your concern is understandable , but don't worry , calm down as there is a help to this , you are not helpless. It is good that you are wanting to come out of this . Many people fall into this trap but they also come out. Tips. 1 . Trace in your mind and heart strongly the reason for which you have decided to come out.…like …..... you may be missing on other social or creative activities . As an adolescent  you have excellent energy level and this is the only time to invest your time in learning things which will make you smarter and talented to stand in society. This habit doesn't let you explore your interest in other areas and also lowers your self concept in your own and others view  . Certain studies also support the fact that too much of masturbating may lead to erection dysfunction in males in long term So develop a strong will power and decision to come out of this. 2 . Understand that this is going to be a war with your heart so you have to stop listening to it and force your heart to develop different routines. 3 . Keep small targets It will not happen fast , if you have been doing twice a day . Start skipping once alternate day for first week , then once a day for 2 nd week ….and so on. Note your progress daily and also when and why you couldn't. 4. Identify your triggers … Identify what situation or time span pulls you. Like during bathing , sleeping , morning, with certain ftiends …, avoid porn watching and such surrounding or friends that remind you of this. Become more alert during your triggers. 5 . Develop new interest to divert yourself , specially discover your interest in other areas like music , yoga and exercise release happy molecules and strengthens power  in our mind . Socialise yourself , make new friends , join social work n help PPL who are in need , their blessings will life long help you. join some online social networking which is only for friends and outings. Explore yourself and try to discover what else can interest you. You can develop new talents like dance , music etc… 6 . Join sports activity , cricket , football ……or jogging etc.... This will tire you and you will fall asleep easily . Also it will divert your attention. 7. If you still aren't able….approach sex therapist. They have special skills to help this. Talk openly ….. Some therapist also offer medicine. 8 . You have growing hormones right now so these habits and desire do arise but at this age you also have a stubborn and strong will power , use it and strike it out. 9 . Read this it may help ……. On practo there are many questions answered related to this. It may help. 10. PPL having this addiction are often found have low self esteem , if this is true for you . Read books , articles to raise your self esteem. Don't worry your will power is your best medicine. Goodluck.

Hello, Masturbation is a normal and instinctual need for a human being, provided it is not causing disruption in your daily functioning. I can imagine that it must be causing you a great deal to distress given the impact it has on your occupational and social functioning. However, it is not completely outside your abilities to regain control over your life.
Next Steps
I would recommend visiting a psychologist to discuss the same so as to be able to develop methods best suited to you to overcome this issue.
Health Tips
Making attempts to limit masturbation to times when you’re not working so as to not lose out on time that could be spent on finding a job or rebuilding social relationships might help you find a better balance in life and qualitatively improve your mood.
