Stop Masturbating Part 3:
A Common Sense Approah

Do you want to stop masturbating? Find here 13 common sense tips that will help you overcome this powerful urge.

Claim Promises. God has promised that He will never allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able to bear. When you are tempted, He will always provide you a way of escape. (1 Cor. 10:13)

WORK. Do hard work. Real work. Outside work. Go work on a farm if you can (seriously!) One of the biggest reasons people get snared in this habit is because they are too idle and their parents never required them to do much. Idle hands are the Devil's workshop.

Get rid of pornography - In your journey of overcoming masturbation, this is non-negotiable. Burn your magazines, wipe your hard drive and get some computer software that effectively blocks adult content. 

Get rid of sex toys

Take cold showers or set a timer and get out when it goes off.

Stop being idle - instead of wasting time on Facebook, Instragram or You-tube get off your computer or iphone and be productive.

Instead,

  • clean
  • cook
  • do your homework
  • play an instrument
  • take a walk
  • go for a bike ride
  • paint
  • draw
  • play a sport
  • read a book
  • memorize scripture
  • plant a garden
  • plan a trip
  • do an act of service for someone
  • Figure out your aim in life and get busy reaching some goals!

Aimlessness is your enemy!

Connect with family and friends. Stop being alone so much. Plan time with your family and friends.

Don't hang out in your room, and if you do, keep your door open. Sit in the living room, go to the library or a coffee shop. If you have too much free time, get an extra job.

Take one day at a time. Set small goals. Start with one day. Then three days. Then a week. If you relapse, don't get discouraged, persevere.

Ask for help. "The power of sin is in secrecy." This is why the Bible speaks so highly of "walking in the light" (1 John 1:7). You need support and encouragement.

Guard your ears and eyes. Stop listening to music about sex and romance. Stop playing video games with provocative characters (even if they are cartoonish). Stop watching movies that promote immorality. If you have friends who encourage sexually related conversation or listen to suggestive music, you must stop being around them. Find new friends.

Pray. Claim a promise in your prayer, "Lord help me to walk in the Spirit so that I don't fulfill the lusts of the flesh." Then pray for someone else. Intercede for their salvation. Get your mind off yourself and look to Jesus who is mighty to save.
