Struggling with sexting addiction and pornography Anonymous 05/07/2022 (Sat) 17:09:02 No.10467
Dear anons, I'm writing this post, because I am at a loss. I have been addicted to sexting and pornography since I was 13 years old and I will be 22 this month. For 4 years I've been trying to overcome this habit, but I haven't been succesful. It seems that I cannot overcome this disgusting vice by sheer willpower alone. Even if I go months without it, I invitably relapse and end up binging for weeks. I don't want to live this way anymore. I have prayed to God and I have asked for the strength to stay abstinent, but still I keep relapsing. How do you guys resist the lure of lust and how do you stay abstinent? It's hurting me a lot, because I keep promising God that I won't do it again and then the very next day it happens again. It's as if something dark takes over and overwrites my normal reasoning. I don't want to live this way anymore and it's really taking a toll on my mental and physical wellbeing and my relationship with God. I appreciate any advice that you guys can give me.
Ah another horny anon. There's nothing wrong with training your will against temptations but if you really struggle with addiction you should find the root cause and start working on that. The thing that takes over is probably the need to dissociate from your current life or some other emotional distress.
>>10467 Nobody is perfect. That includes the "real" Christians who talk like they never did anything wrong in their life and think anyone not on their level won't be saved. You won't be able to get rid of every bad habit entirely but you can make them less worse. At least you're not in the human trafficking business and running a sex dungeon.
Remember that God wants you to be better, and that God blesses those who put their faith in Him, even when situations seem insurmountable. God shows Himself in the impossible.

You’re not alone, bro, I could have written this post word-by-word identical.
I cave in a lot because I've got nothing better to do with my life and it makes me feel good(unlike god, who never talks to me or comforts me in any way). god already took everything away from me. So now I'm just rotting away here, waiting to die, losing my mind from the abuse of god.
>>12839 You are not even capitalizing God. Fuck off leftypolnigger.
>>10467 I've realized, that my desire to watch porn was a sign of a demonic attack, so I've quited it for good and never looked back.
