Hi Well, instead of giving into masturbation I decided to look for a group where I can reach out before I do anything that I will regret.
So, for the past seven years I have struggled with an addiction to pornography and masturbation. My addiction began when I was around 21 or so. I met a group of friends from the college's Newman center. However, one of the first things they did was introduce to me the idea of masturbation. To feel I should fit in with them I started to give into masturbation. Ever since I have not been able to kick the addiction. However, through the years my addiction has decreased. I do love myself more than I did in the past. Unfortunately, the fantasies are still the same I am Roman Catholic and desire to continue to follow the Lord and go deeper in HIS LOVE!!
Thanks for letting me share what I am going through! Peace Candice!!
There are many speakers who have spoken on topic related to addiction. The Lord has brought forth many people who have shown me there is freedom after addiction!! I have seen freedom, and have let myself walk in the freedom of the Lord.
My biggest struggle is reaching out in times of cravings. Most of the time time I text, but I need to trust myself to reach out via phone, to change the mindset I feel at that moment.
So many people have shown me love.
I guess I am looking for an accountability partner: one who can perhaps pray with me over the phone!
Not having a good night...gave into cravings today!
I need to go back to school. Cravings are lot less when there is support around me!!!

teetop: The only problem I have with the e-version of his (Mike Genung)books is the inability of writing my notes on the sidelines nor note the specific line number.
