Is there any way to stop spammers from using my email address as a return address on their spam?

Nope.  You're not alone, either.

Your best defense is to use a disposable address for lists or any other time it could leak out into spammer's hands.

You now have a disposable address: the one that's been compromised.

I suggest that you create yourself a new one and start using it in your correspondence.  Protect it.  And when the real mail on the old address drops to zero for a long enough period of time, you can add it to your spamtraps.
