    We're all addicts, most of us just don't think it's a problem.

    Okay, seriously, bite the bullet and talk to someone professional. You'd be surprised how much they've seen, they'll have seen faaaar worse cases than yours, i swear. and once you start talking it just makes addiction seem much more managable. just try and focus on a social life or a hobby and get some help, and just dont worry about people judging you. i know how crap it feels to feel ashamed and guilty, trust me, there are so many people like you out there. go to your GP, explain youre feeling low, that you wold like to see a counsellor (you can see counsellors on the NHS) and then explain your problem to them. they'll be really understanding, ive told mine all sorts of stuff and shes not fased. and theyll be able to give you advice. itll feel better when youre not on your own.

    hello!

    I used it too but have gone of it completely since i got depressed. however that's not to say you should try out depression, but i agree with the exercise comment, it acts as like a replacement and although it might take a bit more effort youre gunna have to bare with until you get over your problem!

    google it!

    Go on therapy. You're weak minded.
    I'd tend to agree. It's a serious problem, and I don't think you're capable of going through it alone. Therapists are there for a reason and you definitely shouldn'y be embarrassed to go to one.

    Also OP if you want to talk with someone but you're embarrassed you could try certain church confessionals. Some of them are specially tried to help people with such issues. Don't take me wrong, this has nothing to do with religion as such. Just proposing a free, anonymous alternative. Tbh I don't know about the situation in England but they exist in US and Italy and Malta. They could help.

    Alright I admit, I masturbate virtually everyday max. 10 minutes each time. But 6/7 hours each time? Goodness me, that's just a whole different level.

    Sex addiction usually = fear of intimacy.

    Seriously, seek some help, see a counsellor/therapist. Dont feel what you are doing is uncommon.

    Take the leap and seek help. Good luck.

    i'm really sorry to hear that you're going through such a hard time, and you're obviously torturing yourself with guilt at the same time. I would like others have already said, go to see a GP or counselling service. The fact you are in your lab a lot and don't socialise much is probably exacerbating the problem, maybe part of it is feeling lonely and a need for contact and intimacy that real life isn't currently providing? If you're watching porn a lot at night that is probably going to get you even more worked up and not helping with the functional sleeping patterns etc. Try to go out and meet girls who you would prefer to form a relationship with than getting sucked into to paying for webcam shows online etc. I think that it is good you are doing sport and exercise and that should help.

    If no-one's suggested this, try it, although it'll take a lot of courage. But I know people for whom this has really worked! Find one near you. Here's the wiki:

    Don't be put off by the fact it's called Sexaholics Anon!

    Yeh sometimes it feels like Im under some hypnotic spell and it's so diffucult to stop. I only realise the damage I've done to myself the next day after Im mentally and physically drained. I can't even stress how much it is hurting me financially .....have spent around £500 on this rubbish(and thats only the stuff Im aware off). My body clock has changed so much that I manage to stay awake the entire night and sleep in the afternoon/evening . I hardly ever eat at specific times. Whatever you've said is so true .....I do feel a lack of contact with people sometimes . However because Im so reserved and shy I do find it diffuclt to make friends with anyone. I used to be quite athletic and play a lot of sport and make friends that way. However now trying to encourage myself to do anything seems so difficult. As for the meeting girls bit....Im not going to lie, I don't have any female friends and never will because of my nature,interests, appearance etc .

    I know the common suggestion is to see a therapist. I have seen so many of them in the past .Most of them didn't help that much and that was for something which wasn't very serious. Imagine talking about porn/masturbation etc to a stranger. Its not the easiest thing in the world to do. I don't even talk about that stuff to the people I know. Im not going to compare this with other problems like drinking, gambling, eating disorders etc because I've never suffered from them. All I can say is that with all those problems there is no fear of being perceived as a pervert or a sicko for using someoone elses body to feed your addiction and doing that without actually having sex with soemone.The fact that paying money for webcam shows encourages these women to continue what they're doing online is horrible and I know Im to blame for this. I know it could be dangerous(thats how desperate Im getting) but I was thinking more on the lines of medication/pills to stop these instrusive thoughts or maybe even injections if these exist.
