I'm not sure exactly how long its been since any PMO (I know I am good for March) but I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm going through some pretty tough withdrawal symptoms (particularly lack of concentration, obsessive/intrusive thoughts, and fatigue). It's my Spring Break now and I'm home from school. I've been doing some daily meditation as well as daily running to take place of all that other stuff. Thanks for all the help and encouragement. Let me keep going strong. I ask that God direct me through this. I think I should note: I'm a natural skeptic (major in Philosophy and Religion and for many years the existence of a personal God has seemed frankly implausible) and perhaps this is part of my irrational thoughts but it seems as if there is a deeply spiritual aspect to all of this - spiritual insofar as evil is waiting for me to give in (its creeping on the low). I just want to run from that and I ask God, whatever He may look like or work like, keep me fleeing all this sexual immorality. Will keep you guys posted.

Hello, I'm a christian and I

Hello, I'm a christian and I want to commend you and encourage you in your quest to give up pornography and masturbation. I've never used porn myself but I know sex is a very powerful drive. You are very much correct when you say that their is a spiritual aspect to sex. In the Old Testament of the Christian Canon when ever you read that a character slept with his wife it literally means in the Hebrew to "know" one's wife. In the New Testament the Apostle Paul talks about sexuality as a sin "against oneself". I just want to encourage you that their is a God that you can pray to and as the James the brother of Christ said "draw near to god and he will draw near to you." Would you mind if pray for you?

Thanks

Yes the environment change has been very important and good. Still going strong today. I would appreciate any prayer, thank you.
