How much masturbation is too much? I've never really done much of it and when I have, it's been nice but not fulfilling. Recently, I've started to get really excited and I've found myself doing it a couple times this past week...is it odd that all of a sudden I've taken an interest in it? Why is that? I know it's healthy to an extent but I'm afraid I'll get addicted to it or something (which sounds silly, as I type this). So how much is too much?

I'd not worry about getting "addicted" to masturbating. Throughout your life, you'll likely notice that your interest in sexual activities of all sorts will wax and wane. Sometimes you may want to do it (whatever that "it" is...be it masturbation, partnered sex, whatever), sometimes less. Unless you find that something is hurting or it is somehow interfering with your life, there's no reason for concern here.
