but I don't see myself stopping my masturbation to picture images on drugs addiction soon. I guess that is something that will take time;
That's entirely up to you, meaning you decide 'how long' it takes for you to do it.
You mention in a couple of ways how you'll be 'stuck in that timeloop for a while' and here just to remember how we decide in every moment what we Are, what we live out, what we give attention and our breath to. Nothing and no one else is saying to you that 'it must take a long time' or 'it will take time' - it will take time to integrate the change as the new you, but that means you have to actually physically do it, consistently, every moment, make that decision to not give yourself into the same images and so 'addiction' created to masturbation through it and stand up from it as many times as it will be required - that's what is a process, that's what takes time, because you cannot just change yourself with one time you decide to not do it.
And that's how many times the word or idea of 'process' becomes tainted with this 'very long someday down the line' moment where you can in fact change, when in fact it's all here, you are the only one you've been waiting for and prolonging this point of change is entirely up to you - because physically there's nothing that is preventing you from making that decision to in fact stand up, walk things fully through - no half-assed ways - and start really living that respect that you express you'd like to live as yourself.
There's some great support to open your eyes to this in this audio here: Bruce Lee on Becoming Idle for our Idols - The Future of Awareness - Part 90
where it's not only about letting go of heroes or role models, but also what it means to decide to change, to live change even more so when having been writing self forgiveness for so many years, without actual physical change. Very recommendable for you, so check it out if you can.
