You don't say how often this is. If you are masturbating daily and able to engage in all your other activities, then that is normal. If it is interrupting your life because it is many times per day then you could qualify as having a sexual addiction. This is a disorder that happens, just like drugs, which limits your other life activities. It is characterized by the inability to stop after repeated attempts. You have to decide if you masturbate til you see this as an addiction. Just like drugs it has a negative impact on your life especially if this leads to problems in relationships. You can research the notion of sexual addiction. It is much more common now. You have to rely on ways to distract from this activity or finding a therapist trained in sexual addiction.
