Hello and thank you for sharing this with us and asking for help too. I am sorry that you are having a hard time with this right now. When you get the feeling that you have to watch this, can you try to get out of the house and be with you're friends or go for a walk and you can put in earbuds and listen to music to help you not think about this. Also try putting on a funny movie or TV show to get you're mind off of this and not think about putting it on. Also try to be around you're family or anyone so that you are not putting it on. You said that you play guitar, also when you get the feeling to put that on you can also grab you're guitar and play something.
If you have any school clubs or sports you can try joining them and this will make it so that you're not in you're house as long and you are doing other things and not thinking about this.

I hope that you will be ok.

Hey! I am glad you asked.

You can always have a trusted individual in the house to set a password on your computer to limit your usage after you finish studying online. Talk to the trusted individual and let him/her know that you would like to only use the computer for your studies. This way, you'd be able to cut down a lot on your computer usage during your free time.

After all, if you are already spending a lot of time on the computer due to studies, doing other things you enjoy aside from computer during your free time would benefit you in so many different ways, while giving time for your eyes to rest and re-hydrate.

I hope this is helpful to you.

There is a way that a person can, also block specific websites while still having access to the internet. I believe that there is a way to do this through your router or through the browser. I am assuming that doing it through the browser would be easier?

Something else that might be helpful is forcing yourself to get back into the activities that you stopped doing. If you get back into those activities you might be able to start utilizing them as a coping mechanism when you are feeling like you want to escape from reality.

Maybe you could start out doing the old activities for 30 minutes each day. As you incorporate them back into your life you might find that your desire to watch porn goes away to some extent and, instead, you might start to find that you turn to the other activities instead.

I am also experiencing this at a certain extent. I whole-heartedly believe it has something to do with the way you relate to the people in your surroundings.
That may happen due to the lack of connection to them, which troubles your self-realization and makes you want to "escape" this reality. It feels conforting, but the guilt-shame circle is unbearable, isn't it? And, besides, it makes you feel like you are not really alive, it is, living the moment.
In addition to what it has already been said, it may help you trying to be more with friends and family, talking to them, trying to be positive towards them and yourself, even if you don't reaally appreciate some stuff the say or they do (the no one is perfect cliché).
Good recovering, bud!!!
