19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 1 Corinthians 6:19

I got so enormously close I can't even believe it. I won't go into detail because it's all obscene but I edged so far I would of have had to completely recount a microsecond later, as a matter of fact, I felt it going back. I just jolted out of arousal for that microsecond because I knew I couldn't. I don't know if i did right or wrong lads, I wish I wouldn't have to wonder about this but I do feel filthy

Masturbation begins when you're stroking it friendo, it doesn't matter if you ejaculate or not. I get that edging helps alleviate some of the pressure but you've broken your NoFap the second you "took matters into your own hands". (edging is also incredibly unhealthy on top of offending god).

I'll root for your success in the future!

Well my latest attempt to stop lasted just short of the weekend before I caved. Disgusted with myself for doing it, for caving so quickly, and for going back to it after saying I'm going to stop, and for doing it when I know it's sinful. Scared of what this lifestyle will do to me.

If getting into shape helps with the urge, I'd appreciate any advice there. But what I really need is prayer, because only God can help me to make the right decision.

The problem for me is actually wanting to stop. You could give me a whole motivational speech and show me a million times how harmful porn/masturbation is and sure I’d be all motivated to finally stop, but then a month or so would pass and I’ll just end up back where I started again. Porn for me is like what I assume hard drugs are like for drug addicts. It just feels so good that I have long periods of time where I don’t even want to stop.

I have had a crisis recently. On all fronts. It even resulted in me taking a peek on porn besides all the thoughts of sex I had.

I confessed and came back. It feels so good.

>>808207

That is normal. I no longer fap but sometimes I get dragged into erotic images then videos. For me it is commonplace to go to confession every two weeks or so. No need to be ashamed of that. It would be worse if you did not go.

Hey. I don't really post here often, but I figured I'd share. I partook in this lust today, and I'll spare you the details, but it was especially graphic. I felt so ashamed afterwards that in my haste, I decided to defile my body again, and carved a cross into my upper thigh as a permanent reminder that what I did was a sin, drawing me away from God's light.

I even wrote in my journal around four pages worth of me explaining why I did it. I wanted God to know that I was truly remorseful, and that I really wanted his guidance. In the end, I begged for his strength to overcome temptation, and for his forgiveness.

Anyways, that's all. God Bless anons.

When I was sleeping, I was dreaming that I was sodomizing a young woman I knew and then I had a strong sensation in my penis when I wake up, and it was just a little bit of Urine.

I had (sometimes wet) dreams of impure things when I was 10-11, before I ever looked at pornography. In one dream, there were a couple of female classmates standing naked in front of me, but their crotches were blurry (probably because, at the time, I didn't know what female genitalia looked like) and they had abnormally large breasts. Point is, we have little control over what our dreams contain, so do your best to put the guilt behind you. On a similar note, I had a wet dream for the first time in 6 years, just the other day, which was strange because I had (unfortunately) fapped only a few days before that.

Ok…After that evil dream, I somehow end up on /b/ and then /b2/ and there was bestiality porn…I'm so ashamed but I fap to some of them (those implicating women) and then, I finished it off with "normal" porn.

Just like that, I've finished my 15-22 days nofap streaks, while it was going smoothly…

All it takes is a some kind of sexual triggering and I lose my mind.

I can't help to think that Satan lured my into this trap, but the finality is yet my fault, because I cave in to this degenerate thing (which I never watch) and finished by fapping.

It's all becoming tiring…When you feel you are finally going more than 2 weeks of NoFap straight after 8 years of trying NoFap, I then sin with an even more degenerate thing…

Is it a signal that I can't do this on my own and I must attend Church and confess? I've just regained faith in the Catholic faith, but I've pretty much never went to a church ever since my communion..

Here I am again, went to confession, recived reconciliation, feeling pure for a bit and now it returns, the loneliness, the lustful thoughts, the feelings of inadequacy. It all feels like a cycle to me.

I just want a wife, I want someone to love and who loves me, I love God but I've always felt my calling was to be with another human, I always feel better when I'm around people who I connect with, I always feel happier and more innocent around women. I feel like I'll always have lustful and impure thoughts,while I am alone. It only gets worse the older I get. In my teenager years I was perfectly content with being alone, and being pure, I never had the desires. But now it's always haunting me, always around the corner.

I don't even want sex, I just want to hold a womans hand, I want to love her and spend my life with her, though I don't know who SHE is, I suppose it's any woman at this point.

This has been my life for over a decade, the constant cycle of losing my state of grace to porn, the seeking reconciliation. I do not see it ending anytime soon.

I can relate, especially when it comes to wanting companionship but not premarital sex. Granted, I'm not yet Catholic (getting Confirmed next month), however I've had little luck meeting decent women in the past, so I hope I have better luck in the Church. By the way, porn makes you absolutely miserable, so remind yourself of that every time you even think about looking at erotic imagery… Easier said than done, I know, but it's helped to deter me lately.

Nearly day 12.

Spending nearly 90 minutes in prayer a day and lifting an hour a day.

Urges getting more intense, but not to masturbate. I'm resisting the urge to download tinder and winnie the pooh a random woman.

I've never done that before but I hate this feeling. I keep remembering those women I have fancied in the recent past and having obsene thoughts.

It even penetrates into doing rosaries, which disgusts and angers me, both at myself and satan.

When does this stop happening? I miss the melancholic feeling of feeling weird for being a christian, because then I am not disturbed by repulsive images during my rosaries when I feel that.

Thanks

Just hang in there Amigo you can do it. It'll get easier from there. Ask for when it stops only Jesus Christ will know.

What I usually do in these situations is when I pray I thank God for permitting a lustful Spirit to torment/oppress me. I think him knowing that He only permits this as a test of my strength and willpower and faith that I have in Him.

In the meantime I would stay away from the internet and any sort of screen and just keep yourself busy with something. Reading a book helps a lot in my case. You could also always write or brainstorm ideas and how to be better help the church. Also if you haven't already, you should be fasting at least twice a week. Fasting helps discipline your mind over your body. And try to stay away from red meats and chicken and pork for a while. One thing I noticed every time I eat a breakfast pizza (chock full of bacon and ham) my lustful passions Spike incredibly.

I'll be praying for you brother.

Lads I find that temptation often comes to me when I'm physically tired

If I've been busy all day with work, running errands, working out etc., I tend to start feeling really tired around 7-8pm, and this is when temptation starts to kick in. I've tried a few things in an attempt to mitigate it but sometimes it seems overwhelming. because of the tiredness I find it really difficult to concentrate on praying and my mind wanders, and I can't concentrate on reading scripture either, I can't absorb what I'm reading and I end up just staring at the pages and not taking anything in. The only thing I find easy to do at that point is stare at a screen. I don't think it's wise to allow myself to sleep at that time because I often have other things I still need to do later, and if I sleep too early then I'll mess up my sleeping pattern.

Has anyone else dealt with this sort of thing? I know it's probably ultimately a matter of discipline but I'd appreciate advice and prayers. Thanks

You can pray the rosary, but be forwarned. Side effects of praying the rosary with love may case:

>belief in the communion and intercession of the saints

>stating you believe in the one true Holy Catholic Church

>asking Jesus' blessed mother to pray for you

>freedom from sin and vice

>realization that prots have lied to you

So yes, I highly recommend praying the rosary in order to destroy sinful thoughts and vice. Pray the rosary everyday and fast and you will see a change within you. I'll be praying for you, pilgrim.

It's both thanking Mary and God. It was through her Yes that we even have Jesus born into this world. It was through her intercession that Jesus exposed His divinity to everyone earlier than He would have done.

All I'm saying is it works for a reason and has brought many to Christ. Heck it saved me from pornography and drug use. If praying the rosary can help me destroy my 15 years drug addiction, I know it can help you fight off agianst the evils of porn.

My question is not porn/masturbation related.

How do I stop having an erection when I am with my girlfriend? It is not all the time of course. The thing is I never even had fantasies of undressing her or anything like that. We have not even kissed yet. I do not watch porn, I do not masturbate.

But this just comes as a reflex. Sometimes it happens even just by me thinking about her/ some nice moment we had together. As I have said only once I had "dirty thoughts" the rest of the time there;s nothing like that but from time to time I literally end up with blue balls after wards

My question is:

Is this the thing to confess? I wanted to ask the priest but I really did not want to sound too autistic.

Does anybody have similar experience? How do I stop this?

Don't be so dramatic - when you sin, the FIRST thing you should do is go before God, acknowledge your sin and ask forgiveness. You don't flee or hide away - that is what Satan wants you to do. Where can you hide from God? Don't be foolish, repent, ask forgiveness and He will grant it. God loves you and will forgive all of your sins. Repent, thank God and move on.

Actually no, in marriage the couple is still called to chastity, keeping in mind that chastity isn't celibacy, but rather control. It's impossible to have your eyes on God while your living an unchaste life, even in marriage. Bear in mind the apostle said that the ideal life is celibacy for the sake of Christ, but marriage is an option for those who cannot commit themselves to it. This isn't to degrade married life, Saints have said it can be just as holy as celibate life if done properly, but you are still called to conquer your passions, including lust.

I haven't done either in 8 days now… I have no desire to go back to those miserable old habits again. I can't say I've ever felt this confident in rejecting this filth before.

That is a normal reaction of your body.

It did not sound harsh it sounded outright ridiculous. You cannot marry each gf that gives you arousal, if you break up with every girl that does, you will not date any girl longer than a week unless you have disfunctional stuff or she's completely ugly.

I've gone at least a month in the past, yet it seems whenever I fail it feels easier to fail again for a while after, so I only make it a couple days before failing again.

Well it didn't take long for me to fail again. The most disturbing part is that the feeling of disgust, of knowing what I did was wrong, seemed kind of dull, like I wasn't truly bothered by the sin.

Do not let this bring you down anon.

I've managed to go over a year without masturbation, only to fall and fall again two weeks later. As soon as you give in to this sin once, you will find it hard to resist for about a month.

I don't have any advice on the desensitization sexually immorality. I experience this too. It used to take me about 20 mins of hesitation and inner turmoil on the verge of tears, shouting at myself as I saw myself giving into masturbation. These days when I fall, I typically have a hardened heart, as if I have submitted myself to my fate. Not even properly resisting. And I too am filled with great lust even after carrying out the sin, doing it multiple times at once despite hating what I do while I do it. A lot of the time I'm just staring at disgust and contempt at my screen as I'm doing it.

On the bright side, though it feels I'm dulling myself to sexual immorality. Confession still is a brilliant sacrament. This time around I'll do much better as I'm taking extra steps to fight against it. I've blocked all the sites I've used, I'm much more engaged with my Guardian Angel and I'm praying to God through the entire day.

At the final judgement all sins that have ever taken place by any person is revealed to the entirety of His creation. Wanking to that degenerate porn will be exposed to all the angels, all the saints, all the damned and most importantly you will be in God's presence as you find out the full gravity of the sin you have committed.

If you are saved well then I imagine though it's awful, you are still with God and can bear with it. But if you are damned, how truly horrifying it is.

Three things I think you should remember when praying the rosary.

1. The Hail Mary is taken from the Bible ad-lib.

2. You are not thanking St. Mary but asking her to pray on your behalf to God. In a similar way to how God decided to make wine for the wedding at Mary's plea. And when God spared a city because of Abraham's plea. God may make additional exceptions for His saints.

3. Through the Rosary, you are to reflect on Christ. There are only 2/20 of the mysteries reflected on in the Rosary that are about Mary primarily. Everything else you are meditating on and thinking through the things our Lord has done while you pray.

Guys, I need help.

I got drunk one night and fornicated with this girl that has a boyfriend. She's really nice and said her boyfriend was treating her badly. So we slept together but she ended up feeling bad after and cried so I drove her home that night and wished her well. I prayed to God for two weeks straight after that to forgive me. Then I moved on.

Now, she added me on Facebook. I don't know how she found me, but she did. I accepted her and she waved at me so I waved back. She said she is sorry for the last time and asked me if I have a girlfriend. I said I am waiting for a nice Christian girlfriend. Then she asked me if I would be willing to wait for her. She asked me if I would be willing to wait for her.

What do I do?

She seems like a nice girl and she's really pretty.

What do I do?

According to Wikipedia, the source of that quote is a man called Luke Ford, who interviewed Goldstein when he wrote a book about the porn industry. From his own Wikipedia page, this Ford guy seems like a pretty sketchy man, but, again, so is everyone in that demonic "industry".

Regardless, Goldstein himself never repudiated that quote, and by his scandalous style it looks legit. If you can stomach it, you can hear how disgusting of a person he was by his own mouth.

Will she actively be trying to fornicate with you?

Or was it a moment of weakness on both your parts?

Also bear in mind that even if it was you, she did commit adultery. Sleeping with you while in a relationship. Can you deal with this while progressing in the relationship?

I am sorry if all this sounds harsh, but these are the questions you should be asking. Do not let a woman lead you astray, try not get involved in a non-Christian woman unless there is a real chance of them converting, you may have trust issues down the line as she cheated on her BF before you so why not you as well?

I failed again, and it occurred to me that I don't enjoy the action at all. I don't feel any pleasure in the moment. Yet for some reason I did it anyway.

It's more upsetting because sometimes the closest thing I can muster to regret isn't genuine guilt or disgust but only annoyance at having wasted my time. Maybe that's part of why I'm doing so bad at stopping.

> it occurred to me that I don't enjoy the action at all

I don't really remember ever feeling pleasure from masturbation consistently. Maybe once in a while, but for years now, 99% of the time I fapped just to calm urges. It'd be less bad if I fapped just for hedonistic pleasure, but I don't, I do it out of instinct, I let my "needs" (not really a need, no one died from not fapping) take control of me.

At first I felt nothing after finishing, then it felt pointless, then it felt disgusting. With time, it became disgusting before finishing, and I started being able to stop mid-fap. Now I'm managing to find it disgusting beforehand, when the though comes to mind, and often, avoid it completely. About three years ago, I fapped an average of about twice a day. Now I'm down to once or twice a week, though it varies widely. Sometimes I sin three days in a row, sometimes I go more than two weeks without it.

The thing is, you're on the right path, anon. When it comes to fapping, indifference may be one of the strongest feelings working in your favor.

I've been hooked since I was 12 or 13. Looking stuff up over dial up.

I've been hooked hardcore since about 15. I'm 28 now.

I've acknowledged the problem since around age 18-19.

Nothing I've done has been able to stop it. I've tried NoFap, NoPorn, none of it worked, I havn't been able to break past a couple of days before relapsing into jacking off multiple times a day for weeks afterwards.

This has absolutely affected every aspect of my life. I have fallen into all kinds of degeneraces. From insane, sick specific fetishes to cheating on my significant other(s) to outright homosexual acts (that felt disgusting during and afterwards, but nevertheless I did them). I'm not sure if I can find a "normal" attractive woman attractive anymore. I don't know if my dick can even work right anymore. I certainly have all the symptoms of rabid ED.

Maybe because of that stuff I did I am doomed. Maybe. It seems entirely possible. I'd just like to know, though. So I can stop wasting my time or worrying about it.

Regardless, I have prayed for help about this. But it seems like there is no help coming. I'm open to being cursed with this, I guess I deserve it based on what I've done in its service. But I'd just like to know for certain.

I'm totally powerless against this and I don't see it getting better. I can't live with a woman knowing what this does to me. Knowing that, does make it seem like killing myself is a better option. Or at least running off and forsaking relationships.

I do have a similar… problem? I don't really know is it is a problem, though. Actual physical bodies barely excite me, when I fall I do so almost always to "spicy" stories and fantasies. I like the female body in an aesthetic way, but not really sexually. I'm still attracted to women and to the female ideal, so I do consider myself to be clearly heterosexual. Maybe I'm hetero-a-sexual? I don't know, but to be honest, I don't really care. Names and labels are useful for communicating ideas to others, and I don't feel the need to tell everyone what I do or do not do with my penis. I don't build my identity around my sexuality. I can't help but feel that there are other aspects of myself that require more urgent growth and change, and once I'm able to improve as a person I'll be better equip to deal with issues that involve relationships.

Christians don't stop being what they are, their attractions are their temptations, we live in chastity and follow the path of our Lord despite it, out of love.

I know this is wrong, and yet I've done it again and again. I've always feared being desensitized to sexual immorality, but now I also fear despair, being actually unable to stop, or even just thinking I'm not able to stop. Disgusted that I've fapped so much recently.

I'm not Catholic, though I'm beginning to think one of the Apostolic Churches is the true faith. I've had doubts about Protestantism for a while and want to learn more.

Also I failed again. I could have been doing anything else. Even immediately after fapping, when I tell myself how wrong it was, I feel tempted again shortly after, sometimes immediately. I was fully aware of the consequences of the sin, yet I intentionally did it anyway. I fear becoming resigned to sin, but I don't want my heart to harden. How can I keep my mind off these temptations?

You haven't actually addressed what I wrote, though: there's a thing you haven't tried. Going to daily mass. Yes, it's tough to find the time, and yes, you might not be Catholic (neither am I, do I am starting to think about it seriously) - but I promise you, since I started going to mass as often as I can, temptation has not… been gone, but it was easy to conquer.

Even if you relapse - just say a prayer, and do better. Every day you stay pure is a victory in this long war for supremacy over your body. You might lose a few battles, but the war is never over until you give up.

So what do you have to lose? Try it for me, and for yourself: find the nearest church(es) and go to their masses.

Give it a try! It might help you not succumb to temptation - and why not try it? You tried most other things already!

I have been able to overcome masturbation quite some time ago but right now I'm having another huge problem.

Since last week I just can't stop looking/thinking about images that while not necessarily pornographic, are erotic in nature. Sometimes I will be in my computer and almost compulsively look for this kind of pics, and even when I'm not on the internet I will think about those erotic images, this has been very frequent specially during my sleep time. I really want to stop thinking about those images, I feel like they are some ticking bomb that will eventually make me go back to masturbation.

Once happened to me in the middle of the night, I was sleeping and then suddenly woke up with an insane urge to look at lewds.

My first instinct was to rush for my phone. As soon as I turned it on, I miraculously foresaw how disgusting was the action I was about to do and I gave up before even opening the browser. It was probably my Guardian Angel interceding on my behalf. I put the phone away, prayed a Hail Mary and returned to sleep.

Wew, are you me? For me, overcoming masturbation in itself was pretty straightforward, my main struggle was also with looking at lewd images, which then made me extremely aroused and led to those sinful acts.

For now, I realized that "erotic" is really just an euphemism for softcore pornography, even if the image doesn't depict frontal nudity. I don't really have a definite answer to that problem (otherwise I wouldn't be struggling) , but I'm trying to implement a zero tolerance policy, in which I avoid looking even at SFW images of women, especially women I'm attracted to and ESPECIALLY women whose nude pictures are available in the internet.

I know that's not a great answer, but it's what I've been trying to do, with moderate success so far. Also, praying the Rosary, it's probably the main cause of the battles with lust that I manage to win.

Hi lads. I can relate to your problem. I stopped fapping by the start of 2018 and I still hold on to the streak. However about 7 months ago I still had the lewd pics problem.

It usually started with me feeling too lonely.

>hey I might as well check out /b/, the thread with dressed women…

>Go to /b/, see admixed nudes among the suggestive fb/IG pics, of course

>Thirst after women more

>Hey I might just check out this thread

>start browsing more explicit boards, sometimes ending up with videos boards.

This happened although I never touched myself during watching the pics/videos. The more time went I adopted zero tolerance to /s/ and /gif/. Then for months the only problem was /b/ pics. After purging this only then I became free. Ask yourself…why will you watch the suggestive pictures at all? do you not see them on the streets all the time. Like..I go out and there is literally endless fapping material there. Why even bother yourself with additional sin/temptation. You have to resist irl a lot not to look at suggestively dressed women. You probably, as I did, get into watching that stuff because you feel lonely. Well some pixels on the screen will not change that…go out and meet people instead. That solved my problem.

>I'd like to know if that is a mortal sin like masturbation.

It is a mortal sin, but I think masturbation is a higher degree of it. You stay in the phase of thinking about it. But it is a sin nevertheless

>I've began to pray the Rosary everyday

Good!

>What would you recommend me to do?

less screen time, more socializing.

Zero tolerance to degeneracy and nsfw. Even sfw may be triggers. Continue with your rosary effort along with mass attendance and confess looking at those images, even thinking about them.

We're going to make it lads. Just stand among the ruins upward.

I'm afraid so mate.

Thing is, how much of a problem does this pose to your daily life?

Porn has the capacity of turning a normal, vanilla guy into a tranny scat BDSM fetishist.

Numerous accounts on here (and other places of the internet) have proven that these kinds of fetishes get rooted out after quitting porn for about a year for most people (sometimes it takes longer, sometimes shorter).

So unless you're constantly craving loli or something and are completely oblivious to girls 15-45 then we have a real problem.

Even then, unless the problem is going to get…practical, there's not much to worry about.

Look, I already hope you're not completely oblivious to regular women, just start with quitting porn and praying.

Every time I do nofap, I get these intense urges, and after rationalizing them for a bit, I realize I want to fulfill this desire not by going back to porn, but by actually doing the way it's intended to be done.

How do I deal with this? I find it absolutely impossible to find a girl that is up to my standards/morals . And even if I did, I would 100% blow it.

I don't wanna ask this, but are all women whores?

160+ days of NoFap, praise be to God

After the first 100 days the problem hasn't been the urge to fap, but the urge to watch porn.

During those days I had relapsed by willingly searching for porn or friends/work colleagues sending me pornographic messages. But over the past two months I have stayed away from it.

And now I can finally feel the temptation fading and losing its grip on me.

But I must remain vigilant, 2018 was a year of small successes and huge failures, mostly the latter. It has taught me that relapsing into my old habits could happen at any time.

Set a concrete objective.

My first success was January 2018. I was elated and, it was the first time I realised I had a problem.

Of course after January I decided to have a celebration fap and then try got 2 months.

That was a terrible idea, the following months I would not stop indulging. I finally managed to impose some order doing it only on the weekend.

But even that system began to degrade and I would slip, so on Oct 1 I decided 90 Day NoFap. I would not touch myself until Dec 31.

The first two weeks were incredibly difficult, it was constantly on mind. Then by the end of the first month I started feeling better, less anxious. By December I felt like a new man.

Actually the best way I can describe it is that I started feeling, acted and talked like a real man.

During those 90 days I had relapsed into watching porn and realised it would by my next challenge.

On the 31 of Dec I sinned with the flesh for the final time.

I look at it as Lent in a way.

As for the roseries and litanies, praying helps, but only to a certain degree.

If I may get a bit theological this reminds me

of a proverb in my country ",Dumnezeu îți dă, dar nu îți pune în traistă". Which roughly translates to God gives, but He doesn't put it your bag.

It's a distillation of the story of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30)

God has given us the will to stop, but it is I who must choose to do so, I must choose to use this gift He's given me.

>TL;DR

I don't usually post here when I fall, but I would like to vent for a bit please bear with me.

I've been able to go a year without masturbation in the past. But since I gave in to masturbation once after that, I've only been about to get to 3 months or so. Typically giving into temptation every month or 6 weeks or so when the temptation gets too great.

I've been noticing the temptation growing these last couple of weeks as media and secularists bombard me with sexual crap every where I go and every site that I visit. To the point I knew it was going to get difficult very soon. So I prayed to the Lord and to my Guardian Angel to give me deliverance from my temptations. And I believe my Guardian Angel was pushing for me to pray the rosary, which I was going to. However I put the rosary off until later that day regrettably and I fell as a result. As I was going to do the deed God had given me many outs, my thoughts were screaming at me to flee from sin. I was stumbling as hesitating thinking on my actions and how wrong it was. God even had someone pull into my driveway and come into my house just as I sat down hardened heart to do the sin. Even with all these promptings I managed to ignore them all and gave into sin, taking my phone away with me into the bathroom.

Does anyone else have any consolation/advise/experience about denying these prompts? I guess the reason I'm posting this is because I can't deal with the fact that I rejected Christ so many times when I called for His help and He tried to save me so many times. Peter rejected Christ 3 times but I rejected Him about 12 times in a much lesser situation. I know the Lord forgives me and still loves me, but I'm so disgusted and disappointed in myself for rejecting Him so many times that I don't want to be forgiven.

I know that I can't give in to despair and with prayer I'll come around again. But this time is hitting me much greater then any other times. Which is good I guess because I know atleast I'm truly repentant for doing wrong against God. And I'm on the verge of tears as I type this, which I'm sure I'll break down when I start praying. Does anyone have any advice/words of wisdom/get a grip or something for me?

I'm going to go pray the rosary now, please pray for me anons.

Please understand that becoming a saint is difficult. It's written the gate is narrow and this is true. I want to exhort you that Jesus loves you. You may have fallen, but your heart is contrite. Confess, pick up your cross, and go. Think of this struggle as spiritual warfare. Your soul is destined to be good. That's your natural state. You can tell from all these warnings your mind gave you. It's harder to decide to ignore and block out these things than to listen and obey. So: be simple and obey.

I'll recommend to you what I recommend to everyone else - while the rosary is great, I personally believe Mass is even stronger. If you go to mass three times a week you'll find it very hard to not obey the Lord who made you and loves you. What also works really well is to put a rosary in sight of your bed, or a crucifix. One in the bathroom, too. Very few can do the deed while they are so keenly aware God is watching. It's easy to tell ourselves this is not so when we hide in a room. But when we are looking at the rosary, an icon or a crucifix you'll find it next to impossible to give into this sin. Give it a try, friend.

In the state of mortal sin currently due to my short comings. It's the worst possible feeling to be disconnected from our Lord. I want to be reunited with Him again as soon as I can. But I can't tell if I want that for a selfish desire or out of love for Him. I know my life is meaningless without Him and my mood and attitude speaks this out when I'm in mortal sin, He's the only one that can make me feel alive and happy and free. But the fact I need to be in communion with Him again do I want this for my own selfish desire for the happiness He offers me? Or because I love Him and want to be with our Lord? I want to be able to the say the latter but I rejected Him when I sinned so it's not really true love for our Lord.

I feel like I'm repeating myself and people aren't really reading any of the advice in this thread.

If you hang up a crucifix by your bed and your computer you'll find it actually physically impossible to do this without removing them first, which should give you enough time to let the urge pass.

If you also do to daily mass or pray the rosary daily there's pretty much zero chance you can fall in this way. I can't even get hard on days I do that. Even if I purposefully try to disobey I'm protected and can not go through with it.

It's been countless years.

Please at least try my advice… It breaks my heart to read these messages in here when stopping is so terribly trivially easy. It costs to money. It takes almost no effort. Simply hang up a crucifix or rosary where you can see them were you to sin and go to daily mass or pray the rosary. You can do the rosary on your commute or while you walk or are in line in a store. It's literally the easiest thing to stop this. Once you love God you'll stop on your own because you'll feel the deep sorrow and disgust this flaw is in light of perfection.

You're right, I should have been more charitable. But understand: I did those things and they worked. Daily mass, rosary, religious objects in rooms where you might be tempted. Because it worked I'm not attributing this success to myself but to God and these methods. That's why I felt it was easy: taking the 20 minutes it takes to say the rosary in Latin (maybe 30 in English) a day is not a big sacrifice if you commute, stand in shopping lines or what have you.

Be brave for your denial of the flesh is a direct challenge to all of Hell, draw your line in the sand and tell those demons they will not cross it for the Lord is with you and he along with all the Saints, the Hosts of angels and all those who pray for chastity are behind you prepared to wage a war for your soul.

I was on day 13 and thanks to YouTube I winnie the poohed up I moved to heavier places after getting turned on… So yes, try to use internet for basic things and stop there, remove superfluous social media and webs which aren't directly related to your work or spiritual growth

As a recommendation if you're not doing it, read Saints lives or spiritual works, I often feel stronger after reading a virtuous story and motivated to keep following the path (St Benedict Joseph Labre always gets me)

I recommend the sayings of the desert fathers, I read one after waking up and feel greatly edified.

De imitatione christi too, best spiritual companion. I never got any funny thoughts when reading this material, demons flee from virtue

Day 47.

Had a dream I am quite sure was demonic. Lust was utterly burning to the point I thought I was awake. Almost masturbated in the dream but fought it off in the dream with the Jesus Prayer.

Had a bit more lust than usual when I woke up.

I suspect it's because I started mental prayer and yesterday's saying of the desert fathers was specifically about neither examining nor consenting to lust.

I'd really appreciate prayers.

3rd night in a row I had a nocturnal emission. The first night I can grant was do to a mindset I was fostering, but these last two nights were certainly involuntary. I've hardly even been aroused or lusting after girls lately, and though I don't keep count, I'm certain i've gone a longer amount of days without actively fapping, and I wasn't having wet dreams at this frequency. I feel like i'm cursed with something, I feel weak.

I am proud of you for trying very hard.Really! Most of the time people fail, they haven't tried the things you did. You worked very hard. Please remember that failure is not the end. Pray, confess, pick up your cross and try again. You did really well to struggle this hard - remember, the devil is very powerful. I think in your particular situation I would have decided not to do the homework because it's more important to love God than it is to miss an assignment once - but that's hindsight 20/20

And as for your question, my hobbies are video games and watching movies in the cinema. I also like to read books, but lately, because I am considering becoming Catholic, it's been mostly religious in nature. I also love to go to restaurants to try out different cuisines!

Thank you for the very kind words, anon! I indeed will try much harder this time. I've tried cutting back on vidya in recent years, but certainly playing it is preferable to committing mortal sins. Visiting the cinema and different restaurants are great ideas. I'm a recent convert to Catholicism, and my old (Protestant) friends don't really talk to me anymore, so I don't have anyone to hang out with really. Otherwise, I'd love to go to amusement parks or a theater or something, but it'd just seem strange to go by myself. I hope to meet a good woman in due time, but clearly I'm not ready for her yet.

this is a mistake lots of people make, feeling depressed, down or otherwise negative when they slip up during no-fap.

If you react with negative, self-loathing feelings, that depressiveness will make you give up and feel that you are incapable of success.

instead, if you slip up, don't make a big deal about it. just start again and be glad that you made it for a few days/weeks, and that next time it will be for longer.

it doesn't matter if it takes you 20 attempts because in the end you will have self control. be positive about it.

Not a productive truth if you let it paralyze you into living in sin and complacency. There are many different people. Some people, when confronted with guild or shame, double their efforts. But some people, especially those plagued by demons or by depression, just collapse under their own self-pity (which is also a sin because it is essentially sloth and pride) into a state where they just don't try anymore because 'I am worthless anyway, so I don't deserve God.'

I typically will have 2-3 nights of wet dreams or sometimes 3 wet dreams in the same night. Even if they are not sexual. I had one where I was just chilling in spa pool and thats what woke me up with emissions.

Here's something for you all, from Imitation of Christ book three, chapter 57-3, translated from the German version into English by me:

"Be at ease and arm yourself with more patience. Not all is lost when you're often heavily tempted and lose your composure. You're a human, not good God, a bodily creature, and not an angel. How could you remain in a state of Grace at all times if even the angels in heaven and the first men in the garden of Eden failed to? God is the one who can restore those who grieve to salvation and raise those who see their own weakness into His Godhood."

Hey, just FYI, it’s really jarring to have high-register constructions like “not all is lost” in the same sentence as low-register constructions like “you’re.” Simply using “you are” instead of “you’re” makes the text read much better. Maybe try to keep that in mind when you translate from now on.

Exercise (bodyweight and/or lifting weights), running, biking, reading books, writing books, or at least coming up with ideas for stories - that's something I do, praying obv, going to Mass more than once weekly, cooking, meeting with friends.

These are all pretty good. Expend your energy and take your time, which leaves you little time to be idle and in danger of looking at pron out of boredom. Also they help you grow virtues in various ways. If I have spare time/need to rest I usually play video games, often with a podcast in the background.

Yes, but let's be real, wet dreams are mostly caused by sinning interiorly and lusting in the mind while you are awake. Replaying pornographic images in your mind, ogling scantily-clad women in advertisements and on the street, etc. The majority of wet dreams would not have happened without your first committing some type of lust-related sin.

I vowed 2 days ago to not masturbate ever again

I managed to go 2 and a half months last year but after having some hiccups at work and at school I stopped going to church

Now it reached the point I rid the bible to do the obscene act out of pure shame

Im even wearing a rubber band arround my wrist to snap every time I feel the urge but not even that did it

Please bros, Im living alone at 21 years old, working far from home and far from churches

I'm doing pretty good these days (more than 2 weeks in). However, I think the only reason I made it this far is because I'm currently talking to a girl that seems to be interested in me. We've exchanged messages and are going on a date next week which is cool, but if it all goes wrong I fear I will fall back into my bad habits. When I have urges I just think "what would she think about me?" and it goes away. I don't want to rely on a girl to remain chaste, but I don't know how to do it. Every previous attempt at nofap has been very bad before this one, because I had no girl in my life.

After getting introduced to Jordan Peterson trough his online Bible and Maps of Meaning lectures. He explained in some of his lectures that moral relativism works only in theory and not in practice.

In practice you want to do what's good for you, what's good for your family and what's good for greater society too.

There are not many ways in which you can act that can alleviate your suffering, but also at the same time support the structure of society.

There are absolute moral axioms that are good. We know that they are good because societies that live by those axioms get stronger and more prosperous and societies that ignore them fall apart and destabilize.

Help me out with this one lads.

My gf and I were cuddling on the couch. We were talking and not doing anything inappropriate. I guess she was having a wardrobe malfunction and when she stood up her pants had slid enough that I saw a lot of underwear. I can't get the image out of my head. I didn't want to see it, and ultimately it led to nothing (she just fixed herself and we continued our conversation.) I'm not sure if I'm at fault here or not. On one hand if we were not cuddling, this likely would not have happened. On another hand it was not my will to see this and I am not allowing it to have repercussions of impurity.

Did I do bad or not?


8be23d  No.819653

When I failed this time I was going back and forth between the thought "this is wrong and I'm risking eternal life" and "I can repent later". Yet I still caved and masturbated.

What is wrong with me? It feels almost like I cannot stop. It felt so wrong; disgusting and almost painful.

Every time I come to this thread I feel embarrassed at how quickly I've sinned again. I'm trying to take my mind off the list when it occurs but I don't always succeed. The thought of being obstinate in sin, of hardening my heart, terrified me.

Cuddling on the couch can lead to severe temptation, since our flesh is weak.

The pants slipping is not really what's at fault and it's only accidental, the problem would rather the excessive prenuptial promiscuity.

My local priest tells to us that we should never be alone with somebody of the opposite sex if it's not our spouse (fiancée =/= spouse yet), even for a walk, because "covert" activities with just the two of us can lead us to sin in very various ways.

So he tells us to always bring friends or parents when we want to go for a walk, eating somewhere, go to the cinema and so on, and to avoid certain activities that ought to be reserved for married couples.

Cuddling on the couch with nobody monitoring is too dangerous as an occasion of sin imho.

But at least you're questioning the appropriateness of the situation, so that's not that bad.

>>819653

The sacrament of penance is here for you, and you should talk about these things to your confessor. If is always like that with sin, especially with the one we're deep into. But remember whatScupoli teaches us (pic related).

Not only have I failed, but the past couple of weeks I have sunken so far into sin that I can honestly call this the lowest point of my life. This is following a brief period of bliss, during which I was regularly praying the rosary and temptation was the furthest thing from my mind. I feel as if I have spit in the face of God after having received spiritual gifts. What's keeping me going is just how effective prayer was during that time, it gives me hope that God may raise up even a sinner such as me. Please pray for me.

I've never prayed the rosary and fapped in the same day. You don't have to pray it in one go, split it up. Transit, waiting lines, mechanical tasks like cooking, cleaning or office work… all are good moments to pray the rosary. It's barely 20 minutes, and you can split it in roughly 5 min intervals. And if you can't, for whatever reason, pray it in one day, just continue the following day where you left it.

Personally the hardest thing for me is to get rid of the before-bed fap. During the day I'm aware and I can keep myself busy with other stuff. Once I'm sleepy and in bed, it can be hard to avoid touching myself, I'm basically in zombie mode. IDK what's the best way to avoid those situations.

Curious as to why the hell manga is being recommended I clicked on it, and it was a nice manga until all of a sudden it did a 180 degree turn and became full on hentai. I closed it, angrily told facebook not to share that crap with me again. But the damage is done and the thoughts of that hentai are taking root in my mind.

That is typically how I fall to temptation is that one image/thought/video that I came across just sticks in my mind as a seed and over the months it grows and grows until I fall.

I'm very angry about it this time atleast as it was about a month ago I last fell to temptation from a similar seed when ads on the side of the screen kept putting sexual shit in front of me.

Currently I'm praying the rosary, praying for intercession, praying to my Guardian Angel to protect me and help rid my mind of these memories, and of course asking our Lord to help me overcome and be free from these thoughts.

Does anybody know a good way to stop a bloody thought from recurring in my head?

Delete it.

Stop browsing imageboards & avoid going to places fll of degeneracy. If you aren't tempted, you won't lust.

Here is my strategy that works pretty well.

>set up binding prayers (I set a prayer for the binding of evil spirits to a slight head shake and it works pretty well)

>pray the Rosary daily

>Develop a devotion (mine is the Our Lady of Sorrows Rosary along with the regular Rosary)

>prayer regiment it doesn’t have to be crazy I just try to do the Angelus at 6, noon and 6 plus the 3 o clock prayer

>keep Sacramentals like Holy Water and Blessed Oil around the house and bless everything includin yourself (you should be doing his already)

>observe the Wednesday and Friday fasts (this is actually very effective in beating an addiction though do a bit of study and don’t go overboard)

>say a Novena to your Guardian Angel, Mary, Joseph, and any Saints you like they’ll help just be clear what you are fighting

>regular confession

>making sure to recieve Communion once a week at least more is better

First anxiety about sinning will make things worse. Don’t worry about every sin you may have committed you are a soldier in a spiritual war the wounds of battle are expected. Pray for forgiveness and pay reparations as needed if you feel you have many sins or may have committed a mortal sin then go to Confession and keep up the fight.

Second the demons use your knowledge and fear of sinning against you so that they might make you dispair and fail. I’ve had a couple temptations in the desert moments recently when those situations arrive remember who you are and who you were made in the likeness of then declare “Get Behind Me Satan!”

Third the Lord allows demons to tempt so that you will overcome the temptation and become stronger. Everytime you beat the temptations of the Devil the Lord grants you more strength to combat those temptations in the future.

Finally do a real Examination of Conscience and hammer out the sins you probably have neglected to confess or forgot since you’ve been focused on fighting this one so badly.

Remember this is war and you have to approach it like it is. Use everything at your disposal and show no remorse in using them to reclaim your soul for God.

What helped me there (epsecially with the habitual zombie mode morning fap) was placing a crucifix or some other reverential reminder in plain view of where I wake up.

is there any point in blocking internet and browser access to sinful material?

i tried to make it as hard as possible.

Does anyone want help with blocking that?


939edd  No.820121

>>820120

Personally I think it just avoids the issue of willpower. Plus it's so easy to bypass these sort of blockers, it really just serves as a reminder that you need to stop what you're doing. You can accomplish the same thing by moving the browser app on your phone to a different spot, hiding boards that are nsfw, and (most importantly) creating a new routine for yourself. Busy hands are the best way to keep them off yourself.

I've written this before but a friendly reminder: it's literally impossible to fap on a day you pray the rosary. So if you're serious about quitting, do that. It's pretty easy of a fix.

Also wear a rosary around your wrist when home alone. Good luck wanking like that. You won't manage even if you try.

then why are we all coming back because of sinning?


e3c0d7  No.820136

>>820133

I don't want to discount it entirely but with how strong the effect is for me it's almost unimaginable that you manage to fap on days you pray it. So either you come back because you didn't pray it on some days, or you come back because when you do pray it you're doing it too quickly. Personally I don't think it's that great if you pray it in a car or during commute. You'll want to pray it in a church, or at home on your knees.

If you're not seeing results, do all 3 sets of 5 mysteries in a single 15 decade rosary every day.

Jesus says that some things are conquered only by prayer and fasting, so so those two things. Either fast more (no meat on Friday or Wednesday, small meals) and consider fasting digitally or up your prayers.

>set up binding prayers (I set a prayer for the binding of evil spirits to a slight head shake and it works pretty well)

That's one of the things I was trying to remember for spiritual warfare.

I will pick up on the others as well.

>Blessed Oil

How does one acquire this? I've got myself holy water and I'm regularly blessing myself now.

>Fasts

I tend to fast everyday for atleast 16 hours, but that's just how I prefer things so I'm not quite sure its really a sacrifice.

>Novena

Should I just start a new novena every time I finish one? I prayed one to my confirmation saint a week or so back.

>Finally do a real Examination of Conscience and hammer out the sins you probably have neglected to confess or forgot since you’ve been focused on fighting this one so badly.

I have difficulty on this one currently as most of the venial sins I frequent I've managed to overcome. Aside from listening in on gossip when my sisters around, and unjust anger at times/people. Arrogant I know given the saints would frequent confession every second day. But I'm having difficulty thinking of specifics sins I tend to fall into. I will pray to my guardian angel to bring more sins to the forefront of my mind.

>Remember this is war and you have to approach it like it is. Use everything at your disposal and show no remorse in using them to reclaim your soul for God.

Thank you for your time and your words anon, this is how I plan on treating it this time around.

17. How do i inhibit my sexual instincts and celibate? Last year, around this time i started to celibate and managed to do like 53days or something like that, then i did 30 days twice and thats when i started to fail my streaks leading to current days when i only manage to do week or two maximum. What can I do about it? Maybe there is some tricks/chapters in the bible related to this topic?

Are you all too lazy to read the thread?

Go to daily mass, pray the rosary daily, get blessed water & bless yourself frequently, hang up some devotional items in places you are likely to sin in, avoid pornography and idle daydreaming, fast and pray.

>>820169

>fasting

No anon, it is not a sacrifice if you already abstain from food 16 hours a day. Try what the monks did: fast by eating the same way you are, but instead of stimulating food, consume only bread and water. It's boring and that's the point. Alternatively, consider not eating at all on one day of the week, in addition to abstaining from meat on Wednesday and Friday.

>how to get Blessed oil

Buy Extra Virgin Olive Oil doesn’t matter what brand take it to your Priest and he will bless it pretty simple process.

>fasting

You need to fast to feast and you need to feast to fast. If you are always fasting then how can it be a sacrifice. Make sure you are abstaining from meat on Fridays.

>how often should I pray Novena’s

As often as you need to. Develop a relationship with a Saint sometimes just say hi and thanks for praying for me in heaven. St Jude Prayer Novena is especially powerful though can take a bit since he is busy with more important matters.

Go online find an examination of conscience and go down the check list. You’ll find more sins then you’ll know what to do with.

“By this holy water and by Your Precious Blood, wash away all my sins, O Lord. Amen.”

There is no specific prayer to pray when using holy water, other than making the Sign of the Cross: "In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit." You can also pray an Our Father or even the St. Michael Prayer when using holy water.


024362  No.820243

>>820200

Get something to keep holy water in fill it up at church ask the priest if they don’t have a fount. Tell the priest it is for spiritual growth and protection and insist you need it. If you can find a church that uses the old right or find a more traditional minded church and leave the Priest some Water and Salt and ask him to bless it in the Old Rite because the Old Rite has two exorcisms put on it the salt and the water.

Remember sacramentals do not grant grace only belief in God and his power grants these items any power at all. Your faith that God is using these things as a conduit to bless and protect is what makes them work.

Urges are back with a vengeance.

My Id is shrieking at me to fornicate, and since there are no women around, to masturbate.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law

And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Galatians 5;16-24

The flesh's biggest problem is that it wishes to be stimulated. That's literally it, all there is to it. Fapping is just stimulant-seeking. So is eating for pleasure. So is listening to secular music. So is pretty much everything that's not prayer or worship. It's all bait specifically designed to get us to doom ourselves.

Stimulation is a primary wedge that the devil uses to pry us away from the Lord and to create separation. Time spent seeking stimulants is time not spent being mindful of the Lord. Prayer works to combat all this because prayer is the opposite of a stimulant. Prayer is calm, peaceful, contemplative, and reverent. Almost sedative. Prayer is the turning of one's attention toward the Lord and away from the flesh's desire for stimulation. When you pray, you don't even want the bait anymore.

And that's really the key. Stop wanting the bait. Just stop. Say "I don't even want this." Say "Take these thoughts away from me, Lord." Please remove this evil from my head, Lord. Get it out, please. GET IT OUT. OUT.

Something similar happened to me

I was about to watch porn and my lights went out. Turns out my lightbulb blew out and why at that exact moment?

I think I am out of danger of fapping.

But last days have been hell for me. For month or so I did not care about women much. Now something changed again and I literally look at every above average girl…sometimes with lust. There is no end to it. I need to go to confession again but so far nothing helps. It is a complete thirst after women. The weather and dresses do not help me.

I guess I need to pray more. But the thing is….there is no end to this thirst. It may appear all of sudden any time. It's with you for the whole life….it's all so tiresome anons. I just already want to commit to the wife and be done with it. I know the thirst will stay and one will have to fight it. But now I look at women also because I search for the wife.

As I ahve said there is no end to this thirst

Welcome to the desert friend. It’s also the name I am giving it if it is not already used. The Devil is literally attacking your mind, your body, even your senses to cause you to sin. He won out last Friday night, I have since confessed and re-evaluated my battle strategy (adding a devotion to St. Joseph he is really Good for this issue more of you should pray to him, St Ann for help finding a wife and such).

I am currently having the same issue as you women who before I wouldn’t have even considered looking at now fill my head with sinful thoughts. It is the devils work but it is also necessary as the Lord fixes your mind.

When the demons lash out is when you know you are doing something right. Remember temptation is not a sin, accepting the temptations is.
