Feel anxious when I'm trying to resist urge to look at porn.


First things first, I'm a Christian and I do not want to commit adultery by looking(and masturbating) at porn. Every few days I get an urge to do so, and a few nights ago I tried to resist the urge for as long as possible. My heart beats and feel cold and start shivering, symptoms similar to my social anxiety. I tried to go to bed that night and I couldn't sleep, so after a few hours of suffering I gave in and watched porn. I felt bad after I did it but biologically I felt at ease and my nervousness went away. I thought about installing a web filter on the computer, but it's a family computer and I'm moving away to college in a few weeks. My parents also don't know this is a problem and I would prefer to not let them know. But I have an iphone too and I think I'm going to have to let one of them passcode protect the safari browser on it. I just want to know if there are any other ways to resist the urge, because lying in bed just doesn't work, and I would really like to get some sleep.

The worksheets my therapist has been giving me, completely free here.

i have the same problem.what i do when i get the urges is get off my compute immediatly.put on some music and try to resist the urges as long as possible eventually the urges subside.

I'm just a silent man on his way to never-land

adultery;
voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man or woman and a partner other than the legal spouse

You're not committing adultery by watching and masturbating to porn. As soon as you can accept that, you'll be fine.

Stop trying to resist the urge to masturbate. It's a perfectly natural thing to do, most people do it.

Evidently masturbating makes you feel better, don't deprive yourself of that.

While I am not that religious myself, my family is. I once got drug to a sermon where all they talked about is sex... ugh lol. Anyway, the pastor basically said that there nothing wrong with masturbation solely for the purpose of masturbation... essentially, masturbate as much as you want, as long as you're only thinking about how good it feels, and you're not thinking about some girl or something "lustful", etc. Yep, lol.

Personally, I love porn and masturbation. It's the easy and fun thing to do. Screw religion. Religions has come and gone for the 800.000 years humans have been around, and they're all contradictory :P

But if you're really hardcore about not masturbating, you could always turn to /r/nofap for advice I guess. It's a sub-reddit/community for people who refrain from fapping
