      What exactly is your problem brother? And if you're not comfortable talking about it here, you can join "The Vigil" social group. Nothing but brothers who understand the situation there.

        Listen up Jordon

        It is no different than stopping smoking as you did in April 2008. Just don't do it. Resist. It's hard I know, but when temptation somes go to the Word of God and read un til the desire gors away. The more you train your body to resist, the easier it gets.

        Obedience to God is more than a soldier obeying his commander. It is our grateful response to the Lover of our souls.

          I've had this problem for like the last week, and it's killing me. It just seems like it's an alternative to smoking or something, I'm not sure, but whenever I catch myself doing it, it is so out of the ordinary and just all of a sudden I want to look at porn and masturbate, and then afterwards, I feel so horrible and so far away from God.

            Exercise the "will" God gave you to resist. Its hard and its work but it gets easier as you exercise resistance

              I guess that's probably the best thing to do...

                JordanW, I moved all the posts dealing with your problem to it's own thread. This way the OP of the other thread can be ministered to in his thread and you in your's.

                  Thanks Slug, I was actually going to make a thread, but I just thought we would keep it all in one thread, but this is a better idea, thanks!

                    Bolded text is definitely something to explore. The first therapist I saw in relation to my porn addiction drove it home for me: something inside of you is using the porn compulsion for a reason, while the right thing is "to just stop", if you stop without understanding the compulsive driver you could just be plugging a vent hole that will burst elsewhere. So it could be that stopping the smoking cold turkey aggravated this compulsion.

                    Just so I'm clear, I'm in no way advocating continuing the activity. What I'm suggesting is get used to asking yourself some hard to answer questions. When you feel the next urge come on, take a second to think about why you're there. What emotions are you feeling? What were you thinking about before you got your mind on sex? What are your motivations?

                    Make any sense?

                        Jordan, what are you doing these days to fill yourself with Jesus Christ? List everything you do for God, or what God leads you to do in a one week period, start with Sunday...

                          A very practical way to help yourself is to replace a bad habit with a good one. Something artisic like singing, painting, sculpting, knitting, anything constructive and creative.
                          Or something constructive for your body like weight lifting, biking or skating etc.
                          Take up something good, that you enjoy and run to it everytime you get the urge to indulge in a bad habit.

                            That sounds like a good idea, thanks!

                              Well lately since I've been feeling guilty about it, nothing really... I read my Bible, and read Christian book, but I'm not totally getting connected with God how I would like to.
