If you are a young man, then I think even among strict, observent Catholics making their best efforts, resisting for two months is quite good, and much better than a lot of people.

You should just go to confession at the next opportunity and–since you believe masturbation is a sin–try your best to control your urges. I think there’s a lot of threads with advice on that on this site. Why can’t you go? Is it embarrassment or the practical time-related issues?

And even though it seems embarrassing to mention this in confession, I am sure priests are used to hearing masturbation (and all manner of sins of the flesh) confessed. If unmarried observant Catholics (who strive to be chaste) in their teenage years and 20s are being honest at confession I would imagine it is one of the sins they commit the most.

I would suggest you learn to love the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, which was written by Pope Leo XIII after a vision of the war between satan and the church in the future.

When we assume we are most pure and in a state of grace, that is the moment of weakness which satan exploits. If you stand unprepared to defend yourself from the “…snares and temptations of the devil and all evil spirits…”, then you have not put away the things of your childhood and accepted the maturity of your confirmation.

Learn the prayer, make it your own. Repeat it every time you are tempted or distracted.

There are times, even when praying the rosary, that I stop and have to say this prayer multiple times, to return my mind from the wandering of the devil and evil spirits.

Be prepared. Be ready. This prayer was written to defeat satan.

Go to your parish and tell the priest you need confession bad, i am sure he will not deny you… keep on fighting, i know i will

I don’t know if I buy this but people should get the benefit of the doubt. What’s stopping people from trolling these forums?

i cant because my mom has to work but, she said next week i still feel bad :frowning:

I heard it’s quite heavily moderated, so hopefully the mods would catch it.

i just ejaculated with out masturbation, i did get an erection but i didn’t masturbate my gosh, i feel like i do have a high sex drive, i know masturbation is bad im about to go to confession, i’ll admit i have never kissed a girl heck, never had a GF its bad to masturbate & i caved in to lust but, i don’t find pleasure in it i went 2 months with out masturbation is masturbation harder on guys than girls ? i hear almost every guy has masturbated at least once but theres some girls that never masturbate this true? i had to resist to masturbate but i fought it & win but then i ejaculated :frowning:

am i sinning? i keep ejaculating without masturbation i keep getting erections grrr i just wanna go to confession before i burn with lust i haven’t looked at pornography yet im trying not to, i just wanna go to confession :frowning:

First of all you seem to be in a state of panic…Try to relax your driving your self crazy.

God knows your sorriful heart for the wrong things your doing mankind is sinful in nature. Sins of the flesh are probably the most common and its not easy. Go to confession as often as you need to Even if it has to be once a week there is no shame in having to confess the habitual sins over and over again as long as you confess with a sincere heart
and if you stumble confess & pull yourself together and try again.

Most important advice find a good priest make an appointment with him and talk about your issues.

God loves you so much he sent his only son to die for your (our) sins Dont forget that.

I pray your heart finds peace and try not to be so hard on yourself.

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”

Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you, but first, let me do this.”

He proceeded to crumple the $20 dollar bill up. He then asked, “who still wants it?”

Still the hands were up in the air.

Well, he replied, “what if I do this?”

And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.

“Now who still wants it?”

Still the hands went into the air.

“My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson,” he said, “no matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.”

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.

We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened, or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless … and especially to God.

The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE.

“You are special - Don’t EVER forget it.”

Get away from the confounded computer and go run a couple of miles. Mow the lawn, wash the car, go hang with people at the shopping mall. Buy a cheap clapped-out car, then take your car apart and put it back together correctly. Go shoot some hoops. Chop down a dead tree. Build a brick barbecue. Replace the shingles on your house. Paint your living room. Go to work and earn some money, then buy a boat. Take a friend fishing. Volunteer to clean up the roadside of a highway. Sweep the parking lot at church. Write a research paper.

You certainly know that pornography is readily available on the Internet, so get the heck away from the source of sin and do something constructive for your soul as well as your life.

ugh im 15? i dont have a DL & & im using my ps3 to type this

dont have a license but answer my question, i keep ejaculating without “Choking the Chicken” i dont want to masturbate i went basically 2 months with out it

You’re connected to the Internet, aren’t you? That’s all you need to get yourself and your soul into a lot of porno-trouble, as you seem to have learned.

Consider some of the stuff I mentioned a couple of replies ago… Make positive, constructive use of your time, rather than idling around, inviting temptation.


Would you “beat off” in front of your friends? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v313/ponyguy/lookarou.gif Probably not, I’m guessing… so make the sin into something difficult to accomplish.

Isn’t it about time you were sleeping, anyway? You have work to do tomorrow… rest up for it.
