In the past I have masturbated and I had promised to give up almost anything that turned me on. I was in to CPR and sometimes it turned me on. I read a book that had some CPR stuff in it. When I read over it I tried not to get to turned on by it, but sometimes I accidently did. I prayed to God for forgiveness every time I did. It felt fine while I was doing it, but after I noticed it might have been wrong. I was hypocritical and said to myself that I wasn’t trying to focus on it when that wasn’t entirely true.
I have been free from masturbation for about a month and a half now and will try my best to confess it the next time I go to Reconciliation, which will probably be in Advent. Do I have to confess to the above too?
