This seems like a tautological argument. Does being addicted to masturbation harm your life? Yes, because addiction is defined as doing something at a level that is harming/impeding your life.

Is masturbating somehow uniquely addicting or problematic, no. Lot's of people do it in a healthy and sustainable way that can be positive or neutral for their lives.

I have no idea about the nofap movement, but I would say if you are forcibly denying your identity as a sexual being for no reason then its bad. If its helping you cope with an addiction, then good. Though probably a trained therapist would be helpful.
