How to ignore the urge to watch porn?

I haven’t watched porn in four weeks and am really proud of myself, but I keep feeling te urge to watch it, how can I ignore these urges, because I feel really guilty when i watch porn and want to stop.

Answer #1

Find an activity that you enjoy that will keep your mind off it, and when you feel the urge then do the activity

Answer #2

Well, first I think it’s important to realize the fix isn’t ignoring the urge, it’s acknowledging it! Until you can acknowledge the desire and recognize it as sin, self-control will feel torture!

It’s a good idea to try to understand if there are triggering events that are avoidable. I know, woman can’t be avoided! I’m talking about the stuff we can avoid that might trigger the urge.

PRAY!! There isn’t a better way to stop sinning than to talk to God and tell him why you think it’s a good idea to disobey him! Good luck with this,I’ve never been able to come up with anything! Stay praying though! Ask for strength and freedom from that temptation!

And then…. the hardest part! Don’t watch porn!

Answer #3

Where is the bible does it give the pretext that porn is a sin?

Answer #4, pray a lot..and keep or throw those porn flicks..well if its in a computer, delete it.

Answer #5

pray. yeah. THATLL help. i agree with Sam, try to engage yourself in other activities so you dont think about it. Also, watching porn, in my opinion, isnt really all that bad a thing. i mean, if youre like addicted to it, thats a whole nother story. You shouldnt feel guilty. Thats what its there for right? For people to watch. Pretty much everyone does, or did. You souldnt feel ashamed. Also, id just like to note that my ‘L’ key isnt working right, and that this answer really p*ssed me off >.<

Answer #13

Song of Solomon 2:15 says, “Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.” •Matt. 5:27-28, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; 28 but I say to you, that everyone who looks on a woman to lust for her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.” •1 Cor. 6:18, “Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.” •Col. 3:5, “Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.” oftentimes pornography involves viewing sexu@l intercourse between unmarried people, and/or homosexu@l and lesbi@n activities. which is a sin. No offense to anyone, just repeating the bible. even if its only one person in the porn. still nakedness is meant to share with a husband and wife. We all sin Will. It cant be helped. All u can do is try ur best. I am guilty of this too. Just try to remember these things when u feel the erge.

Answer #14
  1. I don’t lust for any women I see in porn. My hormonal mind receives pleasure from the actions shown in the flicks
  2. Why does it matter if I watch something about adultery or lust
  3. Where does it say in the bible thy homosexuality is a sin
  4. Where does it say nudity is to only be shared with a spouse
Answer #15

Leviticus 18:22 (NASB95) 22 ‘You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. 1 Corinthians 6:9–10 (NASB95) 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will … Several actions concerning nakedness (outside marriage where the bed is undefiled - Hebrews 13:4) are condemned in the Bible

Answer #16

U do lust for those women thats why u get pleasure. U may not love them. Its not right in Gods eyes. U can sugar coat it all u want but still wont make it right. Everyone sins will. All u can do is try ur hardest

Answer #17

Leviticus 11: 3-8 you may eat any animal that has a split hoof, divided in two, and that chews cud but not an animal that only chews cud or only has a split hoof… The pig has a split hoof, divided in two, but doesn’t chew cud and so is unclean. So all of Leviticus isn’t entirely followed so you can’t pick and choose sections so therefore it is irrelevant in an argument. I couldn’t find that section in Corinthians so I can’t rebut what I cant find same thing for the Hebrew quote. What I am really trying to say is that so much of the bible has stopped being considered a sin that it’s mainly culture that affects what still counts as a sin so using te bible to say it’s a sin isnt logical. Ok the lust part I will agree to though

Answer #18

Yes i see your point. Times have changed and so have people. So u honestly are arguing that it isnt a sin??? Are you trying to justify that it is ok to do that? I understand the animal thing. all before Jesus. But to try to justify that watchin porn is not a sin. that there is not an argument. The word pornogrophy coms from the greek work pornographous which meant writings about prostitutes. Galatians 5:19-21 19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. As we know Galations is after Jesus. Thats why we can eat these animals. It was not brought about after Jesus. We dont have to live by Gods old laws. We live by the new testament.Mark 4:18-19 18 “And others are the ones on whom seed was sown among the thorns; these are the ones who have heard the word, 19* but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires (lusts- KJV) for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.Rom. 1:24 “in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.”Gal. 5:16 “Walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desires of the flesh.” I could go on and on. There are many places in the new testament that condemn porn. The New testament does not have homosexuality In the 10 commandments but it also doesnt have child molesting or abuse or drug use but that does not condone such atrocities. are we to assume that it is not wrong to commit such things.

Answer #19

again no offense to anyone. I dont care how others live their lives and i do not judge. Just goin off the bible.

Answer #20

My argument was just for homosexuality. I accept porn is a sin but homosexuality isn’t.

Answer #21

Hebrews 13:8 states that God stays the same. he does not go with the flow. Gods word states that homosexuality is an abomination and a great sin against him.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 .Don’t you know that those who do wrong will have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, who are idol worshipers, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals”. as we know corinthians is in the new testament. after jesus.

Answer #22

I have already stated this once before above. It clearly states that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God. Which means its a sin. And it states that after Jesus. Dont be decieved will. I am not one to judge but i stand by my God. and i am not perfect by far. But i will not ignore the word of God expecially when it is clearly written.

Answer #23

Genesis states god created us in his own image. Homosexuality is completely natural and genetic. God would have created us that way if that wasn’t how we were supposed to be. Remember although the bible has the word of god it is written by humans who are affected by culture and culture has always been against homosexuality so it isn’t necessarily gods word that homosexuality is a sin

Answer #24

Reply to this…god wouldnt have created us that way if thats not how we were supposex to be? So i guess killers and child molesters r ok to cuz he created us that way. God created us pure eve ate the apple creating sin. I guezs we will have to agree to disagree. U cannot justify it. Man wrote *

Answer #25

Woops ended it short. Well i personally dont care how people live. Wat ever makes em happy. But me i choose the word of god. The bible.

Answer #26

Will, you’ve spent several weeks resisting the urge, with much (though not unbroken) success. What has worked best for you so far? What has been hardest? What were the circumstances when you slipped and how did it happen?

Answer #27

Killers and child molesters are by choice when homosexuality is genetic, not a choice

Answer #28

Will - so we will have to agree to disagree. Cuz there is really no tellin. We weren’t there when it was written. I will have to listen to it the dont wanna risk it. Thats me tho. Doesnt mean i condone it. If it makes soneone happy then its not my place to judge.

Answer #29

Serial killerz have also been known to be born that way. Somethin wrong with the chemical in their brain. Causes em to act in such a way. I no God would not want that. U think he purposely created them? Maybe there is a reason for all

Answer #30

I am gonna have to disagree and leave it at that. Part of the issue is that homosexuality isn’t widely accepted so people see it as a sin or not part of gods creation but people saw different races that way too until those races got rights and then everyone was like oh our bad we mis read the bible.

Answer #31

we should love everyone. reguardless if they are white, black gay or watever. thats how we are supposed to be. But God has his rules set in stone. He wont change. Times may change but he wont. It doesnt say anywhere in the bible that its a sin to be a certain race. But its clearly written about being gay. U cannot misread that.

Answer #32

Whatever if you feel that way fine but I don’t care how religious I am homosexuality will never be a sin to me. Ok I have one question: if your child was gay what would you do?

Answer #33

Like i said i would love him reguardless because thats how we are supposed to be. I dont judge. Im not meaning to upset u. Just a debate. But im not gonna twist the words of the bible. When its clearly written

Answer #34

It really doesnt matter if its a sin to US or not. It is to God. and in the end it will matter to him.

Answer #35

So you say you would still love your child even if he was sinning and you wouldn’t try to change him so he could get his share of heaven

Answer #36

Homosexuality is NOT natural and genetic while taking into account current the current context of Scientific understanding. Also as a christian what is natural isn’t Automatically good. The bible actually states to be not of the world but in the world. So appealing to secular ideas of what is nomal dosen’t effect scripture. Also when you watch porn you basically are lusting over women. Porn presents women in an unreal state and creates confusion to whoever is watching it in what the women actually do in reality.

Answer #37

Everybody sins will. Nobody is perfect. Whether ur sinning about bein gay or if its stealing or lying. Its all the same amount of sin in Gods eyes. No sin is greater than another in His eyes. It is not my place to judge and try to change people. Of corse i would let him/her no about God and what he thinks of it. But that wouldnt change my love for him/her. We are supposed to love everyone and treat everyone as u would want to be treated. Love thy neighbor. Thats what i am put here to do.

Answer #38

Joshua homosexuality is completely natural it has always existed and even exists among animals there is nothing saying it isn’t natural while taking in account the current context of scientific understanding

Answer #39

Being a serial killer is natural too. But that doesnt mean its good. Being attracted to 6 year old kids (a child molestor) is natural they cant help it. thats how they feel. But its not good. Look at all the deseases that spread due to homosexuality and unclean prostitutes. Not all are like that but some. Its natural to have sex without a condom but not good and unclean
