Yes, it's haram to masturbate. it even says so in the Quran

The main interpretation comes from a Quran verse: “[The believers are] those who safeguard their chastity; except from their spouse or their dependents […]; But whoever seeks anything beyond that—these are the transgressors” (Surah 23, The Believers 5-7). The last ayah (verse) is the one including -in both Sunni and Shia Islam- the self-stimulation of the haram realm, because all form of sexual gratification, practiced outside of marriage, is relentlessly prohibited since infringes on the law of Allah.

try to stop and if you have the urge then read the Quran or do something else that doesn't make you want to do it.
