    Hi everyone,
    Tomorrow I am taking my family to a Eucharistic procession in my city to close the Year of Mercy. I don't feel it yet, but please pray that I will. I will take all of Nofap and your intentions with me. Thanks for being here x

    Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ! I am Catholic, I really fear what PMO demon is doing to my life and I believe come back to Jesus Christ with all my heart is the only way out. Please pray for me. Thanks!

    Speaking of St John Vianney, confession, confession, confession! As often as you can if this vice is keeping its grip on you.

    (Sorry for my bad English, i live in Vietnam).
    Thank you, AllanTheCowboy. You're absolutely right! I must go to confession every week because "Greatest Miracles" happen there and I must attend Daily Mass as usually as I can. I know I have to pray the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary every day because in the past, I read the quote on Pinterest "In time of darkness, holding the Rosary Beads is like holding your Blessed Mother's hand."
    Every time I'm tempted to quit I pray with Holy Spirit, God can and will give me the strength to resist temptation. I have to stay strong and stay determined.
    All the best on your journey! AllanTheCowboy, God bless You today and always. Peace.

    Assalamu Alaikum (may peace be on you),

    I am a Muslim male that has suffered a lot because of the filth of pornography and masturbation. I'm happy to see that my Christian brothers are combining there efforts to fight this evil and would love to help. But I just have some questions first. I won't be beating around the bush, so I hope you wouldn't mind.

    I believe that most, if not all of the people who come to this website have suffered from the pain of masturbation addiction, the psychological and physical problems. Having no one to ask for help. We we're helpless, and that everyone here agree's that pornography is wrong and should be illegal. As a Muslim, it goes without saying that pornography is wrong and masturbation is prohibited.

    You Christians seem to have similar beliefs, on the face of it. But I'm not sure if its true. I've been reading you're Bible and have come across pornographic material there. Yes, you read it right. Pornographic material in the Bible. Can you tell me why is there pornography in you're book of God? I know that this is not the time or place, we are allies here against masturbation. But I just have to ask. I want to know what you think. Why? What are Christian children supposed to learn from these filthy stories? What is the moral?

    Please don't take this the wrong way, I just want to know you're point of view.

    Please read what I will post below. Ezekiel 23 may be enough, but I want to show you what I know.

    INCEST :
    "Sexual intercourse between two persons who are too closely related." (New Collins Dictionary). For example,
    between father and daughter, son and mother, father-in-law a daughter-in-law, brother and sister, etc.


    INCEST IN GOD'S BOOK (?) BETWEEN A FATHER AND HIS DAUGHTERS:
    a)
    "That night they (both the daughters of Lot) gave him (thefather Lot)
    wine to drink, and the older daughter had
    INTERCOURSE with him ...
    "The next day the older daughter said to her sister, l slephim last night: now let's get him drunk again tonight, ansleep with him. Then each of us will have a child by our
    "So that night they got him drunk, and the younger daughad INTERCOURSE with him ...
    "In this way both of Lot's daughters became PREGNANtheir father."
    GENESIS 19:33-35 (From the "Good News Bible in Toda
    English").
    n the older Versions, like the King James and the Roman Cathoersions, "SEXUAL INTERCOURSE" is vaguely described as
    COLLECTING THE SEED OF OUR FATHER."


    INCEST BETWEEN MOTHER AND SON:
    b)
    "While Jacob (Israel) was living in the land, Reuben (his
    firstborn, his eldest son)
    had SEXUAL INTERCOURSE with Bilhah, his father's concubine. "
    GENESIS 35:22.
    The older Versions of the Bible, use the word, "lay" for SEXUAL
    INTERCOURSE.


    INCEST BETWEEN FATHER-IN-LAW AND DAUGHTER-IN-LAW:
    (c)
    "When Judah saw her (Tamar, his daughter-in-law), he thought
    she was a prostitute, because she had covered her face.
    "He went over to her at the side of the road and said, "ALL
    RIGHT, HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?" (He did not
    know that she was his daughter-in-law)
    "She said what will you give me?" (To have sex with me).
    "He answered, I WILL SEND YOU A YOUNG GOAT
    FROM MY FLOCK.
    "She said, "All right, if you will give me something to keep as apledge until you send the goat.
    ". . . He gave them (the pledges) to her. Then had
    INTERCOURSE, and she became pregnant."
    GENESIS 38:15-I8
    (Quoted from the "Good News Bible").


    Out of this incestuous relationship between a father-in-law and his
    daughter-in-law, twins were born, who were destined to become the
    great-grand-fathers of Jesus Christ.
    See MATTHEW 1:3
    "And Judas begat Phares and Zarah of Thamar . . ."


    INCEST AND RAPE BETWEEN BROTHER AND SISTER:
    (d)
    ". . . he took hold of her (Thamar, his sister, not to be confused
    with Thamar in "c" above), and said unto her, Come lie with me
    (have sex with me),
    my sister.
    2 Samuel 13:11
    "And she answered him, Nay, my brother (Amnon, one of the
    sons of David, the man after God's own heart), do not force me .
    . ."
    2 Samuel 13:12
    "But he would not listen to her; and since he was stronger
    than she was, he overpowered her and RAPED her
    (his
    sister)."
    2 Samuel 13:14


    WHOLESALE RAPE AND INCEST BETWEEN SON AND HIS
    MOTHERS!
    (e)
    "So they set up a tent for Absalom
    (another son of King David)
    on the palace roof, and in the sight of everyone, Absalom went
    in and had INTERCOURSE with his father's concubines ."
    2
    SAMUEL 16:22
    (f) For other various types of incest see LEVITICUS 18:8-18, 20:1114
    and
    17-21.


    ISRAELITES :
    Insatiable whores
    (a)
    "Thou hast played the WHORE also with the Assyrians,
    because thou
    (the Israelites)
    wast UNSATIABLE; yea, thou
    hast played the HARLOT with them, and yet couldest NOT
    BE SATISFIED." EZEKIEL 16:28
    WHOREDOMS OF THE 2 SISTERS - AHOLA AND AHOLIBA:
    (b)
    (c)
    "And she kept LUSTING in the style of concubines belonging
    to those whose fleshly member (genitals) is as the fleshly
    member
    (genitals) of male asses (donkeys) and whose
    GENITAL ORGAN is as the GENITAL ORGAN of male
    horses."
    EZEKIEL 23:1-49 (New World Translation)
    ". . . for the spirit of WHOREDOMS hath cause them (the
    Jews) to err, and they have gone a WHORRING from under
    their God."

    HOSEA 4:12, 6:10, and 9:1
     
  9. Delighted to have found this thread. St. Jude pray for us.
     
  10. I can't believe how much extra energy I have since I stopped fapping. Today was day 11. Was planning a quiet evening in but energy was pumping through me and was sorely tempted to relapse to PMO. My best tactic is just to find something else...make that ANYTHING AT ALL...to do rather than PMO. In the end I started playing piano again after many years. Playing music calmed me down and out of the red zone. Thank God for Nofap too. I'd be lost without having a place to check in.

    Here's something I posted in the Christian fapstronauts group...

    I have found inspiration from David's fight with Goliath. He doesn't engage in up close hand to hand combat. He moves quickly so as to avoid goliath's strikes and to stay out of his reach. His first tactic is "don't let him beat me". Then he can strike the killer blow on his own terms. It's not just about fighting hard. It's about fighting smart and avoiding occasions of sin.

  14. I watched a "nofapacademy" video on YouTube this morning about the benefits of cold showers. For the past week I have been experimenting but this video has given me valuable insight into how to get the most out of it and to understand how they help us grow in virtue. In Catholic terms it is a form of mortification. I undertake to have a cold shower every day for the duration of advent.
    Here is the link.

    Welcome aboard. Team Vatican FtW! (Also team Pentarchy, I'm told, but I wouldn't know about all that :p )
     
  17. Day 14. Never thought I'd make it this far. Deo gratias.

    My recipe for success thus far.
    1. Daily mass
    2. Prayer to Our Lady Untier of Knots
    3. 20 mins meditation on the scripture of the day
    4. Cold shower
    5. Check NoFap twice a day to know that we are on this journey together.

    Have never felt better or more spiritually alive in my whole life. I know what He meant by "life and life to the full." Thank God for nofap.
