Here's a link to an article describing using Mindfulness meditation to "urge surf." It is used by Psychotherapists to help "people recovering from addictions to alcohol and other drugs. It can actually be used to help with any addictive behaviour such as gambling, overeating, inappropriate sex or any other destructive impulses." Hope it helps.
And be gentle with yourself. I took me many failures to finally succeed in my final quit. I wish you the best.
Note: I've also attached the article as a PDF
