Giving up watching porn and masturbating

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have very bad habit of watching porn and masturbating and I really need to stop but I just cant. I have tried a lot of remedies; fasting diets exercise. I try to limit myself off the internet but I cant. I am on constantly and I am 15 yrs old. I don’t want to tell my parents because I find it a very touchy subject to talk about and I am not going to get an early marriage. Most of the time when I do the haraam act, it is at night and nobody is around and I end up doing the haraam act. I really need help to stop. Please can you give me a really detailed explanation of how to stop.


A: Refer to

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
