I AM EXTREMELY TEMPTED TO LOOK AT PORN.

However, Jesus told me not to. If Jesus is my King and my saviour, then how can I disobey him? The only way I can watch porn is to put Jesus at the back of my mind, to completely forget about Him in that moment.

I would usually have already folded to the temptation on my own. It's an incredibly strong itch, but now every time I feel the urge, I am reminded that to follow it would require me to disobey Jesus. I want to follow the King of Kings. Therefore, I CANNOT look at porn.

Thankyou Jesus. That is all.

      At the very least, the power of the idea of Jesus Christ is undeniable. If you bother to understand it, that is.

          >in the same way
          Yes, it is the same way. However your idea is much, much weaker. The transcendant KING of the universe, who loves us so much he overcame death for all mankind, so we could live eternal lives? He faced a great evil empire and an embedded religious establishment with absolutely zero fear. He suffered and died with zero fear, and lived with zero error.

          That, speaking as a pure academic without even accepting it, is the most powerful idea a man can hold in his mind. Men respond to great leaders, and Christ is the greatest possible theoretical concept of a leader.

          I recognise the possibility of it not being true, however for various reasons starting with deism, I have concluded it is all true. Either way, it is truly the most powerful ideal. You also better hope it is true, as without it we are literally all doomed.

          And you may feel bad, but that idea doesn't actually have the power to stop you. Jesus Christ is the only one who I can kneel before to the point where I must obey His will over my own, and God is the only one I fear and trust to serve me death as the wages for sinning.

          You might think some warrior-king is the ultimate ideal of a leader, but they all sin and die. Jesus is the only one who conquered temptation and death.

    I have no intention of porn and slight noticeable pangs
    You can even jerk off while reading it by the end once you got it you will have no intentions to jerk off again it's like magic, it's Allen carrs version for porn
    Basically just realising all porn does is super stimulate the brain making numb to lower dopamine the stimuli path way just goes deeper and deeper looking for more and more weirder genre. Porn has no advantages it doesn't cure boredom it caused the boredom due to withdrawal pangs in first place porn doesn't improve your mood it made you feel bad in first place remember non users have normal mood level. It only has disadvantages zero advantages. It makes you feel fomo and dwell deeper into newer weirder and lesser return. It's like a timer when it's up withdrawal pangs starts porn user thinks this is bad mood and only porn can relieve it non users don't have the timer. The pangs are very mild just like feeling of missing breakfast. I was addicted for 16 years. I'm 24 now feeling way better.

      I'm (OP) 26, I've done streak after streak for the last 6 years, ranging from a week minimum to over a month using all kinds of willpower techniques. Never really been less than a week between relapses, probably averaged 2-3 weeks. So I've basically cruised on a mild level of self-control that always fails when I get horny enough.

      However in the last year I got into the habit of edging to porn instead of cooming, thinking that was 'still not losing' as long as I didn't cum, which made my porn addiction even worse as there was no natural time limit. I still went weeks and weeks without ejaculating but the last few days before a relapse I'd start binging and going down cringe fantasy pathways where I'd make captions and collect 'good' pics and videos (hot but 'natural', vanilla porn that wasn't overtly degenerate). That also gave it a hobby-esque feeling where it was almost creative, selecting the 'right' pictures to save. Slavish and deluded I know.

      I slowly learned that I could never control it forever and porn always won in the end, and inevitably brought me failure and shame. I recently realised me thinking I could 'get away' with looking at porn even once without it destroying me was hubristic and prideful. I asked God to help me stop after that and He has. He reminded me 'the wages of sin are death', as that's what failing feels like, death. An irrecoverable loss of your vitality and youth. Because it's something you don't truly desire to do, you don't intend to, but you're a slave to it, so it erodes your soul. As soon as you open that door to sin, death is inevitable. Those words are helping by making me fear the sin as if it was death, by equating them in the moment and not allowing me to hubristically assume I won't get any consequence.

      Hopefully my experience can help other anons avoid some temptations and prideful delusions. I have concluded I literally need both the father and the son's help, and it's finally working.

        Why aren't you married, since you're practicing Christians?

          Porn is a drug, you can be addicted to drugs within a marriage. My wife loves and forgives me and understands the nature of it, it's not truly sexual it's just a brain hack for dopamine using my deepest inherent weaknesses.

          Besides, it's not actually that destructive. We still have sex and are very loving and intimate. Relapsing once or twice a month is mostly only frustrating and degrading for me and my own soul.

            I should have said, it's not OBVIOUSLY destructive. I'm sure it has held me back in ways I can't know.

      And the actual point I was trying to make was, I hope this streak you're on isn't a 'streak' but a final and lasting freedom.

      But if you do fail, do NOT give up. Ask for forgiveness and keep trying, over time the pain and shame will teach you your own mental pitfalls that cause you to slip up and how to overcome them. I concluded the ONLY thing powerful enough to defeat my sex drive is the fear of God (truly believing wages of sin = death) and the desire to obey Christ my King. It's easy to fear death and it's hard to forget Jesus.
