Re: How Were You Able To Quit Your Addiction? by blazepascal(m): 1:56pm On Sep 06, 2020
SweetHearted:
If you are addicted to masturbation,it could be impossible to stop except by miracle itself.

So the best thing to do is to reduce the frequency of the masturbation.

If for example you use to masturbate daily,make it twice a week.

Then after sometime, make it once a week.

If you stop masturbation completely and you don't replace it with sex,you Know it won't be possible.

We are all human and your hormones will not allow you to stay completely without desiring sex,intimacy, masturbation, relationship etc.

So the best thing is to reduce the frequency of these things.

We are addicted to Grilling,
There is no stopping us,
Cos we don't wanna STOP!

For bad and negative addictions,
Try as much as possible not to think about it.
Make your mind up to stop and pray along with that.
All the very best.

Apparently you've never had to deal with any real addiction otherwise you won't use this medium for marketing but take it seriously.

To OP, it helps if you start to hate the addiction, then some how either through self-discipline, change of environment or religion, you'll overcome it.

I hope you get over it soon.

Not easy though, but with prayer and personal determination you can overcome. By September 22nd I will be a year free from alcohol addiction.

Mine was womanizing any thing skirts can't pass me by, many visited prostitute but my own case prostitutes visit me regular, friends girlfriend and wife's always end up in my bed, i can't even recall how many times i had sex in car.

I'm happy i won the battle, imagine 19 months now i had no sex and no feeling for prostitutes even some lady's moving naked in the streets,
but it's wasn't easy because you can't just wake up in the morning and overcome addiction, you need self motivation by always remembering the negativity and also restrict your self from any thing that will trigger the urge.

No one can help you to overcome any thing you are addicted to, is only your self can put an end today by telling your body and soul that you want to quit because addiction is more than spiritual.

What's your addiction?!:Approach to quiting addictions are not same
Re: How Were You Able To Quit Your Addiction? by urchcoded(m): 4:49pm On Sep 06, 2020
Originalsly:


Not an addict... never was... but from people who I knew were addicts... and some documentaries I've seen..... what you wrote above is the most effective way of stopping an addiction. Most people just don't understand that there is a bigggg difference between a bad habit.... and an addiction. A habit is what you do when it is convenient for you to do.... an addiction is what you must do... by any means necessary... when your body demands it.... so well explained by Urchcoded earlier as in one working a machine in a factory and will leave the machine to go satisfy his addiction. He is an addict. Determination is the solution. If you don't have determination... you will quit for a short time then go right back.
There is this lady...... by farrrr...... she was the worse drug addict I had ever seen... the one I wrote off completely ... didn't see her for a while.... meant one thing... she was dead... I can swear... drug related. Later learned she was alive and well... was told where she lived.... saw her.... with my own two eyes... but yet my brain did not accept. For monthssss..... I kept seeing her... wanting to ask about the turn around.... until one day I did. I told her I used to be seeing her high but no more.... she opened up... used to be on crack... always high... asked how she got off... said one day she just decided she would stop... made up her mind and she did.... never touched drugs since. She is now works for the City as a counselor at a Drug Rehab center. If there is one person I had to write off as impossible to get off drugs... it was her... she was that bad. There is nobody at Rehab that can tell her she doesn't know what they are going through... and can't get out of addiction.
On drugs to get rid of an addiction..... heroine addicts are/were given the drug methadone to get them off heroine. The thing is... they now became addicted to methadone! Well when one is high on methadone... it can be a sick form of entertainment for some people... like me... and serious cause for concern of saving lives for others. Drug Treatment centers give the methadone guys walking sticks.... when on methadone... you will see a guy walking along ... then suddenly he will stop dead in his tracks... as if suddenly hit by severe leg cramps.... doesn't matter where he is... halfway crossing the street or wherever... he will just freeze.... rest.his hands on top the walking stick then he appears to fall asleep... standing right there... and in 30 seconds... as if going into real deep sleep.... so he begins to slowly lose balance and in slow motion ... begin to slump forward as his head and upper body begin to move to ground... head first.... his knees buckling at the same time... as he hits the tipping point and begin to crash to earth... his foot kicks out ... body straightens out and he resumes walking as if nothing ever happened! I love watching these guys and listening to people scream thinking they will fall. I wonder .... is it not better he remain on heroine? Drugs is not the way to go to beat an addiction.... determination I will say.
Apt.

Hey the most effective way is to relocate. Move from that comfort zone that breded the addiction. It gets easier learning to abstain in a new place you don't have access to it.

What are you addicted to actually??

Crack?? You're likely to go back to it until you make up your mind to quit. Making up your mind is the first step. You cannot do what your mind can't do.
Weed?? You can overcome with a strong will though weed is sweet shaaa
Meth Trust me you're too good for that. Better run for your life.
Alcohol Same thing as crack.

I laugh when people recommend getting busy as the cure for masturbation... Can you be busy all the days of your life? So how about when you sit down to think? How about the enormous lustful thoughts that floods your mind when you see anything skirt.... What majority term as overcoming addiction is just blocking one tributary of a river with so many more... True victory comes when you're able to stop the source... Addiction to masturbation and lustful thoughts are both the same but we always tend to make ourselves feel good by telling ourselves our outward actions have more consequences than what goes on in us.... Before you claim to have overcome any addiction.. Check the true state of your heart

Get this two books "WHEN GOD SPEAKS" and "BECOMING LIKE JESUS" both written by Gbile Akanni and study them.

Pray at any point the word of God hits your heart.

The experiential knowledge of the CROSS, which the Holyspirit can give, is the complete and permanent solution to any addiction whatsoever, no matter how long it has lasted.

This was how I got free from immorality after many years of rising and falling(addiction).

I used to be a moderate drinker, but when i got divorced it went into a downward spiral, and found solitude in budweiser and beers in general, fwd to march 2020 i met someone who motivated me to be better for myself and not try to improve because of someone, it took months before i actually put in effort to stop drinking, and I'm for the better now smiley wink cheesy grin kiss first i set a specific time for drinking and cut the amount of can i took daily, then i went further to a specific day, now i don't drink anymore it's a gradual process.

I don't think prayer will help, y bcoz if u keep and constantly praying about it, in some ways, it keeps reminding you of it, and when u remember d urge immediately comes in..
Have been a victim of masturbation 4 about 6years...
This shit I never wanted it, any time I do it I regret, but later on I tend to discover it was because I was always praying about it, after praying It tends to make me remember it..

But at last my solution was always going online to check for d adverse or negative effect..
Anytime am online am browsing n searching 4 d negative effect, which tends to always bring fear to my mind..
Whenever I remember d negative side it scared me, it makes me weak and humble, it makes me think about my future, it makes me to worried about my latter days and journey ahead..
So d phobia of not destroying my future by checking d negative effects helps a lot..
U can try it...it will help I bliv so....
