Good Day everyone! I woke up sober today on a Saturday and am thankful to God that I was able to keep myself Sober & pure last night.

We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he that is begotten of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. 1 John 5:18
Jubilee Bible 2000

Keeps himself - this means “I” have to DO something to Keep myself pure, it doesn’t happen magically on its own. There is something I have to do to stay sober in this area. Be it putting a blocker on my computer like Net Nanny, on my phone like the Boomerang app and then praying for others, reading a book, whatever it takes to stay sober!

At times when I was falling on a nightly basis, I decided I would lock my laptop and phone away in the boot (trunk) of my car. Then I had no access, but then the battle is in the mind - the thoughts. The more I become pure in this area, the thoughts and images I have seen become less and less. Of course I have to reap what I have sown - thoughts will be lodged in my mind and it’s hard to get rid of them, but I can pray that the Lord Jesus may wash my mind from this filth and I have to read Gods word - the Bible to renew my mind daily.

I’d like to share a video that I found interesting and may it be of help to you today my friends!


How to stop masturbation

#24

It is written - "DO NOT LET sin reign in your mortal bodies.
Berean Study Bible
"Therefore do not let sin control your mortal body so that you obey its desires."
Romans 6:12,3-4:
That means I have power to NOT LET sin reign, I don’t have ANY obligation to allow my lusts to rule over me and hold me under foot! I am to rule over my own passions and desires and this is completely possible if I am humble and aware of my own weakness and aware of my strong enemy!

I can resist the temptation through the power of the spirit of life!

THE DANGERS OF A LITTLE IMPURITY


#26


#27

Hi Kentotai! You have the right attitude there! You will get out of it my friend! Today I am 5 days clean. No masturbation, no porn, no sexual thoughts. God is gracious. Pray for me that I can go for 6days. The 6 day war! May God strengthen you in your battle. The longest I’ve gone is 29 days! So I believe I can go without it a lifetime! Stay humble! No progress without acknowledgement and humility! We get grace from God by humbling ourselves before Him, Grace is help to get victory over sin.
God is a God of wonders, so He is able to help us and sympathise with our weaknesses!

Hi iwillwin

I am 100% with you on the quest to come free from porn addiction. I believe it’s possible in our lifetime and with God’s help.

We can use this forum to post motivational content and stay in touch. We will win this thing if we get back up that one more time!

Hi everyone, today is day 6 free from porn! I have insomnia, and just got a migraine attack now. Please pray for me! I am tempted like mad to give in and watch porn & masturbate! But I’m resisting the urge. It’s Tuesday 12:50am, I have work tomorrow and just convincing myself that it’s not worth it to give in to porn! It gives me such a high and feeling of euphoria, but after the effects wear off, then I feel like shit and really feel like I could just throw up! I feel that way anyway with this migraine. It’s when I feel terrible, depressed and often sick that I am most tempted to give up and just let go and loose myself in my addiction, but if I can just resist then I know I will have peace and joy. Pleease pray for me, there’s no one else I can call - since it’s 12:54am. Thanks friends!! I am praying right now for myself and I’m gonna shut down the computer, go outside with with my laptop and phone and just lock it in the car and go to bed. That is the only thing that actually helps me when I am so exhausted!

Anyone still awake?


#32

Hi there. I’ll pray for you. Pornography is a big demon. Don’t submit yourself to any sexual immorality. You’re stronger than that.

I’ve personally been struggling with all of this for quite some time. I was exposed at 10 years old. I don’t want this to be a part of my life anymore. I hate deceiving the people I love and I hate deceiving myself. The devil is a liar. We should try not to fall into any of that trouble. If you believe God can save you through His righteousness, then surely He’s given you the strength to overcome this temptation and flee from it.


#33

I am praying for you.


#34

Hope you’re doing ok and getting some rest. Glad you locked your computer in your car. Something I often need to remind myself is that it’s never too late to make a call. I would rather have any of the guys in my program wake me up in the middle of the night than have them relapse.


#35

One week sober today… thank God…Taking it a day at a time and surrendering to God my everything.
Sober day everyone
Serenity to all…


#36

So great to find this thread. I’ve been struggling with porno and masturbation for 15 years. I had my great months when I could go without even thinking of sex and I had a horrible ones where I failed every day.
I relapsed today and I feel horrible. I know it’s a needed feeling cause that means I care and I want to change but I realize more than by trying to fight it on my own I will never succeed.
I need to be surrounded with fellow warriors. This isn’t fight anymore. It’s a war and closer we are with one another, more chance we got to beat it!


#37

welcome @Naois u r not alone
…Together with the help of God we can beat it


#38

Way to go Dreamy Y! Awesome! So happy for you ! No keep it up - it’s easy to let your guard slip when you are doing well. But keep hammering at it. Pound on your enemy until it’s utterly destroyed!

LOVE KILLS PORN

I just want to sincerely thank everyone here who has been supporting me in prayer and with encouragement last night and today! Thank you! I can’t do this without you guys! If anyone else needs my prayers or support just give me a shout. I feel a bit better today after taking 3 pain killers and a sleeping tablet when I had that migraine and insomnia! I felt quite bad at work today but work went really well otherwise. I thank God I stood up at 1:00am at the time I was tempted and did something. I locked the “digital cocaine” away and went to bed. We must do something, we can’t just let Satan walk over us and keep us hostage! We can’t let this “crap” destroy our lives! I felt bad today being sick - but I have experienced that if I give in I fell a double weight of heaviness over me so much so that I don’t even want to go to work or get out of bed! That is how much it destroys my life! If I have given in, I also start to de-value others, I become angry and swear for no reason (I am not a swearer by upbringing and swearing was not taught in my home - since I have a good mother). But I become a monster when I give in fileld with all impurity and it causes me to be depressed and want to “die”.

We don’t have to live like that ANYMORE! Let us fight until death! When the temptation comes it feels irresistable, but it IS resistable! But I have to HATE it! I have to HATE becoming the loser it turns me into! I have to think thoughts that are SOBER when it comes my way! I should journal, write down what I feel / say it like it is! Call a friend! Write here on this Porn Addiction Recovery group! ANYTHING that takes me further from this "suicidal, filthy, self-destructive, decaying, mindless, heartless, LOVELESS LIFESTYLE! Porn is completely selfish and the opposite of love! Fight Porn with Love - like the video in the link says! This was actually quite a good video! I am not affiliated with those who made it, but it was a true video with some sincere people and definitely put things into perspective for men and women!

I am going for day 7 today! ONE WEEK FREE from Porn - believe it or not but this is a MASSIVE achievement for me, since I have been enslaved most of my life. So going one day without it is big, it’s big! You will also get a HUGE reward for every tiny good thing you do in life! HUGE!!

Stay sober my friends! You are my friends if you do what Jesus commands you! He has thoughts of peace for you and a FUTURE and a HOPE!!! :slight_smile:
