First Post: My masturbating problem. I need help plz

Here goes nothing - My first post.

So as a kid l recently got a smart phone and one day l got one of those links that didn’t take you to the correct website but redirects you to porn. At first l was curious but eventually it slowly began to be an addiction. It screwed me up for years however I saw it’s bad effects on me and decided to take control. It took awhile but l have stopped my porn addiction.

Present day: All that stands in the way is masturbating. I think the porn in the past even though l quit awhile ago still made an impact on me and my intense urges to masturbating.
I think the main reason why l struggle is l think about sex a lot. As a Christian l want to remain pure for God meaning sex after marriage but we all know curiousity is a bitch. So l prayed for strength but l think l need some wisdom here. So can someone give me tips and tricks to guide me on this journey. I know it won’t be easy but I’m willing to try new ideas.

Yes, this is the dark side of the internet that many of us are exposed still when we are kids. it’s great that you have no problems with porn but unfortunately the memories are still in your mind.
Try to be busy and keep your thoughts on things above as it is written, It’s not easy but we have His help. There are some challenges here you can join and be encouraged when urges try to catch you. I strongly recommend reading and meditating on bible this help me very much. People have different fights here with PMO so reading and sharing your thoughts also may help them. I’m also new here, sorry for any misunderstanding. Peace and all the best :raised_hands:t4:

Yeah l am new too and thanks for your wise words. It’s just that being single can be cruel. As l said curiosity is a bitch and thinking about what sex feels like but then l am reminded 1) do not lust 2) be pure - sex after marriage etc. It’s just upsetting and hard but l try to push through in the name of our Lord and Saviour

Yeah, I know. I’m single too and I don’t think that having a relationship can help in this sense, I don’t know. Most people think that is the only way out but masturbation is much different than sex (I think). Purity is about being conscious of the sin and seek Him despite everything. We may relapse but we can’t just accept and live as it is ok. God’s grace is above everything in world!

Ok I got your problems listen,
You want to relapse ??? You want to mastrubate??? At first do what you want but don’t watch porn. Do this method for every relapse…e.g: now you are getting very very strong urges you want to see porn then watch something else but don’t watch porn
You said you stopped watching porn addiction man you are in the right direction :muscle::muscle::fire::fire::ok_hand::fire: I am also with you … We are very safe .
Now you are thinking about masterbation then you have to set your daily routinee .
Wake up early , daily exercise,diet at proper time,8 hrs sleep ,read holly books…
After 3 or 4 months you will see great improvement in gap of masterbation …
At last after somedays you will free from this addiction :partying_face::partying_face::partying_face:

Thanks Tiger for the motivation as l really do appreciate it

Oh NOICE will definitely watch this and give it a go. Thank You there

So annoying and frustrating as l lasted 5 days without fapping, haven’t relapses yet but having extreme urges for release. Trying everything in my power to go against it but it’s dang hard

I need help and support please. I posted in my diary that l was so horny l touched myself for a little bit. Does it count as a relapse if one Masturbates just a few seconds and then snaps out of it.

Many people consider edging as a relapse.
It depends on you. If resetting counter would demotivate you then dont reset. It depends on you.
Just dont fap using resetting counter as an excuse.
Just chill and dont touch yourself.
