    Hey guys!
    I’m 19. Currently attending BYU. I’m LDS (a Mormon) and a male. I’ve been struggling with PMO for years. Like a lot. I believe it’s gotten quite excessive. I’ve tried to quit. But never do.

    Have I gone to my Bishop? No. I’m too guilty at this point and afraid. Anyone know about it? No. I’ve been hiding while doing this for 6 years.

    I’ve been hoping to go on a mission for my church in August 2019. Will I go to my Bishop eventually? Yes.

    But only when I’ve stopped for months.

    I want to quit. I’m done with this habit. PMO pisses me off. I hope you all kick this piece of crap drug. I can’t post journal updates everyday. But I will every half week or end of the week.

    My time starts now. Day 1 will be tomorrow. Wish me luck.

    It’s day 2. Goll this urge is hard. I’m praying though.

    Sometimes it almost felt like I had a little guy in the back of my head just thinking of it. I decided to stand up and go run or do push ups. I’ve found tying a rubber band around my wrist and snapping it to keep me back on track.

  7. I'm on day 2 as well and almost just relapsed. I don't know what stopped me from doing it. Maybe from thinking about my loved ones, I don't know.

    That’s great that you didn’t relapse! I’ve tried to quit before, but this time with nofap I know I can! Keep doing whatever you can to resist brother!

    This officially concludes day 2. No porn. I did come across images of models in bikinis and things. Did I look for a bit? Yes. But I did not indulge and put down my phone. I’m hoping that I never face a relapse.

    That probably won’t happen, but I’m praying. I’m thanking God everyday especially from here on out.

    Day 3.
    Not as hard as I expected to resist. I’m sure it will hit me one of these days. I think the trick is just keeping the thoughts out of my mind. Like keeping my self from imagining the sex acts.

    God is also a key factor in this. I need to center Him in my life.

    Nice way of putting it.

    Ya giving into the urge instead of talking to someone about your struggle will just make things 10x worse.

    Day 4.
    SUCK! Yep relapsed.
    TWICE!
    I PMO’ed at 6:30 and again at 7:30. I told myself I would stop after the first session but went straight to the second session later.

    What triggered? I was browsing YouTube. A couple of videos not even that sexual triggered it.

    3 days and it was that easy to send me off.

    Dang. I’m trying again tomorrow. Back to day 1. If I can just make it past 2 weeks, I think I’ll have the strength to push on and not relapse.

    Don't get discouraged. Reset start again. I'm new here, too. I don't know much about Mormonism, but for Catholics today is the Feast of Christ the King, the last Sunday of the church year; next week starts Advent the time of waiting and preparation for Christmas. Seems like a good time to start again too me. So I'm planning to focus on reaching Christmas clean of PM (probably PMO since my wife and I don't need to risk getting pregnant anytime soon), so if you want we can walk together. I find focusing on smaller chunks of time helpful. You just have to be careful not to use it as an excuse to screw up when you've reached your goal!! I'll pray be praying for you in any case; pray for me.

    There are both Christian and LDS groups within this site. Not sure if you were aware. There are good accountability partners at the Christian site and probably the LDS group as well.

    Honestly, sure we may have different beliefs, but we as Christians, we do all follow Jesus. I think it’s great that we can at least support one another.

    I agree we have common ground and a common goal. We can definitely encourage one another to stop PMO.
