A masturbation addiction, or any addiction in general starts in the brain. Starting with a craving, loss of control, and continuing involvement. This can have effects/influence the brain depending on how long. A masturbation addiction can stem from many things in life whether that be past, or current stress, anxiety, previous trauma, current trauma, etc. This could be a way of coping from certain issues or certain situations, feelings, etc. If this is a concern to you. I would recommend seeking out professional help from a sex therapist, or someone who does specialize in addictions. There is hope, and it is possible to overcome this with the proper help and support.
I am sure you're going through a hard time, and the time it might feel like u cant overcome it, but with time and patience you can fight any battle hon! :)) you need to keep in mind that if you let it control you then it will become an addiction but if you control it then you wont have a problem at all! now what we're talking can be very tempting and i can understand how you feel, i felt the same way once, what i can suggest you is, that staying away from stuff that can trigger might help
