I have seen in my life the power that God can give me to live without lust, porn, and masturbation. When I remember to do the things that keep me close to Him and to ask Him to Fight for me, I do so much better and my life and recovery is so much easier.
What do you do to stay close to God? Is he part of your fight for freedom?
You can pray, go to church, read the Bible…
There are also film about Jesus and saints! xD
Obviously!!! He is the most important part!!
I think that physical strategies (Like cold showers or doing push ups) are something more you can do but the main why to fight urges is to be faithful!
I wouldn’t be nothing without His grace and mercy on us. He’s definitely before my fight against PMO.
I do things that are common to many believers: reading His word daily, seek to live what I read and pray for this and for everything, the most important thing we have to do is to pray. It changes everything in ways that we couldn’t imagine.
As it is written, it’s not by our own power but it’s only by Your spirit that we must to face several daily issues in our lives.
I agree with you 100 percent. Have you looked at the 12 steps to overcome addiction by the power of God.
No, I haven’t. Is it a book?
I have made God to be part of my fight. I have sought his help. I connect to God by Chanting Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare…and I do fast on Ekadashis.
Yes and no. It 12 steps of AA are being applied to any addiction including Porn and Masturbation. I have loved the way it applies the principles of the Gospel especially faith and repentance to recovery. It mentions that addiction is caused by selfishness and that it is a spiritual maladie and that only the power of God can restore us to complete spiritual health. One of the steps is to turn you life and your will to the care of God. When I have personally lived the 12 steps I have done really well in my addiction going 2 years without a relapse. When I stop to practice them then it takes a few months and I fall on my face again and again.
I listen to a Christian radio station on my drive to and from work. That is a big boost in my day. The station is K-love. You can find which radio channel for your area, or listen to music on their website, klove.com.
They play songs like “start right here” and “help is on the way”.
If anyone is interested in a 12 step program just for PMO addiction centered on GOD and following him and accessing his power to overcome your addiction, interested in finding real recovery and healing and not just whiteknuckling it for a few days, today I went to a great meeting on Zoom with SAL. Check it out if you are interested. https://salifeline.org/
It was so good. There where 60 people on zoom some of them had 8 years of no PMO. Wow. It was really powerful. Good night to each of you and keep inviting God in your life, in your fight and in the miracle that awaits you of being healed by Him. God is more powerful than my lust, my craving and my urges. He will fight for me if I invite him and surrender to him.
