Bad Habit Involving Adultery and Masturbation

I wanted to ask for any hadith and any ayahs in the Quran about masturbation and watching/thinking about adultery. This is a bad habit that I have been trying to tackle for almost a year now. I am 15 and I always fall into this sin. I feel very bad after I commit the sin, before I commit it I do not see any bad in it. I know it is wrong but yet I fall into this sin and at times I cannot control it. I have tried using a vpn to block these sites and I have even tried to listen to Islamic lectures. I become good for a day or two then I commit the sin again and come back worse. I have tried searching for tips to stop this once and for all. But I have been unable to find anything. Sometimes, I get to such a point of such shamelessness I commit this when I am fasting. Today I got a dream when I committed this sin and then I asked for forgiveness straight away with great remorse and regret. Please interpret this dream and please tell me hadiths/ ayahs that will make me change my ways and my bad habits. I am afraid of being doomed in the day of judgement. May Allah grant your goodness and May Allah grant you ease in this life. Ameen

Problems Regarding Wudu


I have been having some trouble with keeping my wudu, right from when I begin making wudu I feel like I am gonna release a gas, sometimes I manage to hold it while other times I have to redo my wudu.
