Hi, so I’ve struggled with masturbation the past few years and I prayed and prayed about it and finally was able to stop a couple months ago. It’s been amazing because I finally felt like that was behind me and I could move on, and there was nothing holding me back from my relationship with God.

Oh, isn’t that just terrible when an old problem rears its ugly face again? 🙁
If you want to cry, then cry; there’s nothing wrong with that. You clearly are upset about falling back into an old habit, and it’s a GOOD thing that you feel regret… BUT…you also have to allow yourself to move forward and not let this get you down. So let yourself be disappointed, go humbly to God for forgiveness, and *accept* that forgiveness by not doubting it. That’s my advice…
I hope you’ll be able to break free of this habit once and for all–I have no doubt that you’ll manage it as long as you keep fighting 🙂

Oh my gosh.. I’m in the same situation. And it’s crazy because I literally just made this account and the first discussion I saw was this one. I still have yet to have a Christian circle that can help guide me in the right path as I’ve gotten really serious with God recently. I stopped doing it as well, but I started did it again yesterday and today and I feel extremely guilty. I don’t even want to say the word. It’s honestly so upsetting feeling like I was over my past and then it just comes and hits me harder than ever.

Long ago before I was even sure of what sex was I used to masturbate. Only through God’s guidance and the Holy Spirit’s help did I stop. But when you masturbate does it mean that you have had sex even though it’s not intercourse? Does this technically mean I have had sex since it is a sexual activity? Please answer!

@faithfulsoul I don’t think so. I think sex is really only when like a male’s–ew–sperm passes into your body.
