Yes... I am still here, I am doing good... It is not impossable to stop this problem (masturbation), much of the world will say things that are easy for the carnel mind... If people can stop drinking, and smoking then it is possable to be clean from this. I dont have to see myself as a animial anymore, I am not just some stupid teenager who would through away virtue just for selfishness... they will say it is me, I say it is my body... it is a sin... I dont have to be defind by it anymore, I never had to. let it go... just let it go...

"Whoever is in control of that past is in control of the future... Whoever is in control of the present is in control of the past." ... ...

I wish I never had this problem, I wish I could have been informed better, I didnt know about this or that it was so difficult, everthing the church said was true... it just got worse and worse ... the devil's trick... If I was willing to do this why would I stop... it got worse... then I started to look at pornography... It dosent matter what the world says... the natural man is an enemy to god and has been scince the fall of adam and will be forever unless he yeilds to the inticings of the holy spirit and putith off the natural man and becometh a saint through the power and atoinment of Jesus Christ. It dosent matter what they say is normal or natural that will not make it right, or a good thing...

There is no need for excuses though, this has helped me understand the atoinment and the church better... whats done is done, and I am doing great now, it will always be diffcult, I will always need the savior's help, but at least I know........

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
