When I was around 4 or 5, I accidentally discovered (what I called at the time) “touching myself.” I didn’t think anything of it because I did it because I just thought it felt good. As I entered into my teen years, and the curiosity of my raging hormones got worse, it turned into a lusting process which I now know is completely wrong. I even got wrapped up in a little porn, which eventually began to disgust me. I regret all of those times that I have done that. However, I still have problems with masturbation, and I want to stop. I definitely feel like doing this is blocking me from my blessings and full experience with God. I have prayed about it, but maybe I wasn’t completely serious when I talked to God about it. I have never told anybody about this secret and I have been too scared to tell even my closest friends. So I decided to come on here and ask if first, that you girls will pray for me? Second I ask that if any of you have struggled with this, what did you guys do to stop your self from this temptation? God bless<3

Sure:) I will pray for you:) It is a good thing that you want to stop: at least you realise that it is wrong and you wish to stop! Good for you! About masturbation… I used to do this for 7 years. After a few years, I started to touch myself nearly every day and I also started to watch inappropriate scenes into order to feel good. When I accepted God, I realised that it was wrong and I had to make a huge change (Something happened.. no details… the event made me feel so ashamed and embarassed and I knew God wanted me to change because it was wrong. In order to overcome it, I had to lean on God for strength. Always be rooted with God- pray, read your bible and talk to Jesus about your struggles in life. I also prayed quite constantly for a long period of time. I also would always try to be around people at all times to prevent myself from giving into the temptation. Also, if you got inappropriate videos, throw them out and get rid of it- get rid of anything that reminds you of your past activity. I am nearly free of it for two years and a half after meeting Christ. When you feel really tempted and you are alone, pray to God to give you strength to resist and HE ALWAYS helps you/ gives you a way out! Also, think about how it will really displease God and how much it will please him if you resist. Also pray to Jesus to release you from the demonic bonds of masturbation and always remember, touching yourself will never satify you, but God always will! I hope this helps and you can get pass this:) You will overcome this:)

Thank you so much! I really appreciate your answer as it gave me inspiration, and I am also glad you are going so strong! I will continue in prayer and keep myself occupied on more useful daily activities 🙂

Relax, everyone goes through this, it is absolutely normal, everyone does it, it is not wrong, and it is not against God. You are just discovering your sexuality, and thats OK.
