Ask an Alim

Do I need to offer kaffarah for a broken ‘Oath ‘


Assalamu Alikum

I placed by hand on the quran and said i wont masturbate for one week,but after two days i masturbated i couldn’t help it i am addicted to it I have tried everything and still fail to stop. Am i sinful for placing my hand on Quran and saying wont commit a sin because i thought i would stop but i was wrong shaytan got me. Do i need to offer kaffarah or anything like that. i am desperate to stop but i cant so i a trying evrything to make myself stop but cant.

thank you
