Hello guys! I havent written in a while but I desperately needed to update on here. I've been talking to my bishop about my addiction to masturbation and talking to my parents daily about it. My bishop said I had to wait 6 weeks from my last time of masturbating until I'd be worthy again. And guess what??? That is in 3 days! The last time I masturbated was May 25th. That was a really hard blow for me too because we had a temple trip coming up and my bishop said I could go if I was still worthy and about a week until the temple trip I crashed again. I had been talking to one of my friends in my quorum about it and one of the brethern in the young mens presidency who is one of my best friends and kinda like a dad to me. Telling them I messed up and seeing how disappointed they were in me really hurt me and motivated me to change. I still get tempted from time to time but its easier to ignore now. My body has started to regulate itself too (for which I am very grateful at sometimes) It was really hard in the first 3 weeks though. But I'm all good now. Not this sunday but the 12th I'll be allowed to pass and bless the sacrament again. I'm very excited to finally be clean of this! I've been unworthy for over a year. Also, were studying the BOM this upcoming year in seminary and I think I will gain a very strong testimony of the gospel and feel the spirit very strongly. Also, the week after I become worthy is the week I'll be at EFY and being able to fully receive and feel the spirit without anything being held back from me I'm very excited for! I pray for all you guys and hope you can overcome this! I know you guys can do it if I could! Our Heavenly Father and Savior love us very much. Lets let them lift us up on their shoulders and pick us out of our miserable states.


"Wow, that is absolutly great! I am in a similar boat here, my main problem has been masturbation too. I wish I could say that... to be clean and worthy for even more than a month. I have had periods of succsus but I end up crashing around a months time. Keep your guard up, this is when the devil really once to trip you up.

To say the least I am motivated and encouraged by your succsus! Thank you, that is amazing and great. I still wish I could turn back time just a few years back so I could be worthy back than and enjoy those blessings..."

"I need not define your specific problem to help you overcome it. It doesn’t matter what it is. If it violates the commandments of the Lord, it comes from Satan, and the Lord can overcome all of Satan’s influence through your application of righteous principles. Please understand that the way back is not as hard as it seems to you now. Satan wants you to think that it is impossible. That is not true. The Savior gave His life so that you can completely overcome the challenges you face. "
