During middle school/early high school I had trouble with my impurity (pornography/masturbation). On a personal level I understand how wrong it is, and I’ve always tried to control it. Through the Grace of God, He helped me control it completely that I’ve been living a much better life in this regard since middle of High School (now a college student).
However I have a new problem.
On several occasions throughout this year, I’ve been touching myself in my sleep. Let me explain.
I am aware of where I am and what I am doing. However, in my state of semi-sleep I’m not consciously thinking of my actions and of my morals.
An example of what I’m talking about is that on one occasion my sister sort of woke me up. I was aware that I am in the room with my sister, and I talked just nonsense things for 10 seconds before falling asleep. I remember this completely when I wake up later. It seems that I am conscious of myself and the surroundings but I am not conscious on my morality and ability to think for my actions.
I have been praying to God that I don’t do this in my sleep and considering it is still my body, I still repent to God as it is still my responsibility.
I want to live a pure life, so how should I deal with this. I’m not tempted in these actions, it just seems that in my semi-sleep delirious state I am not able to comprehend and think for my actions, sort of like a drunk person would. So is this a mortal sin, and advice on how to stop this?
