Need help with personal struggles

I am having a hard time with lust. When I was younger I lokked at a porn alot, starting in middle scholl up throught high school to now. I get pleasure from it then and it feels good but after that I want to keep doing it to feel that way again. Its like a drug that I am addicted to. Everytime I go home from college for the weekend it gets 10 times harder with all the girls I hangout with from my youth group after church. After ahwile I started to masturbate and that has latched on to me like a parasite like porn and lustful thoughts. There was a girl that wanted to date me awhile ago. I decided not to at first then a week later I changed my mind we went out for a week before I felt like we were better off as friends. After I ended it she said I would be missing things. To me it sounded like she was saying I would be missing physical pleasures of some sort. I don't want that from a relationship. I will admit that I have thought about oing back out with her to find out what exactly she meant by that, but I have not and don't want to.

If anyone could please pray for me to gain the strength to avoid porn and help me get better with controling my lustful thoughts and helping keepmy eyes from wandering over a woman's body please, I don't like degrading woman especially my friends.

Praying for you man! I know what your going through! Just ask God to give you the strength to keep you away from that. Ask Him to help you and guide you through. He WILL help you. Stay strong man!

Micah 6:8…read it over and over again til it really sinks in!

Ask God for strength and then walk away from it. Get rid of your internet, don’t watch movies with nudity, don’t look at magazines about it, etc. It is the garbage in, garbage out principle. If you fill your mind with it, you will think about it all the time and look at women as objects of lust. Use the time you use to watch porn to read the Bible, study daily devotionals, pray, volunteer somewhere, and maybe start new hobbies. It will get easier over time and then it will be gone from your mind forever. I beat it and you can too!

You will be in my prayers… try to keep yourself and your mind busy and focused on other things :) We can pray for you and God can help nudge you, but only you can make the change. I hope this problem will get better and easier for you soon
