Okay sorry to put my foot in it guys but I want to talk about masturbation! Now I understand that people have various perspectives on this matter and its rather taboo. On the other hand I have spoken with a lot of Christians (and non-Christians) who have felt quite powerless to tackle a habit that has in some cases dominated lives. Lets be honest many of us have been indulging in it for many years yet we tend not to talk about. Neither do most people consider abstaining as an alternative. On the other hand i am aware that several of my friends have successfully stopped masturbating (and viewing pornography) and have enjoyed richer lives closer to God as a result. I have been told that quitting mindfully and having a support network of people who are in a similar situation whatever their background and wherever they are is really helpful. This is a temptation that can in some cases take over peoples lives and interfere with daily activities but with Gods help I have been free of this sin for the first time for a few days now. If anyone wishes to join me on this quest or can post their own thoughts or some messages of advice it would be great. Sorry it feels a bit strange typing this!
Good to meet you and God bless.
