DAY 4 NO PMO. I know it to be worth it. I'm in my mid 30's and I think I started M around 9 and P about 11. I had no clue its destructive and addictive power. No doubt its caused me to be single to this day and I've had no trouble attracting girls, I just lose interest after a time. I realize clearly the source of this. I know there is so much more. I've been beat up spiritually the past year and I'm taking a stand. This forum will be a pillar to the new house I'm seeking to build, daily disciplines another part and trusting in my creator to be the foundation. The person who spends a life with P&M habitually is subject to many other sins as well. I realize it affects every aspect of life, ones ability to love, focus, care for others, and connect with God. Years back I had a season of heavy grace where Gods hand was upon me in power. There was no struggle with P or M. I find myself in a new season where the grace is still there, but I'm being grown in discipline. A disciplined lifestyle leads to a life of freedom, whereas a lifestyle of bondage leads only to more traps, setbacks, discouragement and more bondage. I'm sick of the latter, and I'm hear to ditch P for good, ditch M for good, and use whats been given to me to please my future wife the way she deserves and to create children who will go on to change this world for the better. Most certainly I will teach them about these things so they arent just thrown into the lions den with no warning like I was. I blame nobody but myself, but some healthy instruction would have been nice. So thankful to be here, I spend the afternoon at a Cafe reading threads, so much wisdom! Looking forward to a life of freedom!
