Kaffarah for Unfulfilled Oaths

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah.org.za

Question:

Dear Mufti Sahib
When I was 16 years old , I swore by Allah that “I will fast for whole of my life exempting Eids, if I will masturbate and I would give thousands of money in the path of Allah if I will masturbate”. I don’t even remember the number of Qasams I made for not making this Amal of masturbation at different times .It used to be effective for few weeks but I could not resist and masturbated, I had no money at that time.
I am 25 now, but this guilt is with me still, I am doing job now, Its impossible for me to mange fast of whole life and I don’t know the number of Qasams I have broken,
I have now spent 4 months in the path of Allah with Tabligh. I have made Taubah of making unnecessary Qasams?
Please tell me what to do with Kaffaarah of those Qasams for which I forgot the number, what about fasting?
