I can't stop Masturbating

I read the other post about masturbation being a sin.

But I just can't stop masturbating. I am not married and I have never had sex. But I struggle with masturbation every day. I just can't help it.

And I know I should feel sorry for sinning deliberately. Honestly I don't because I really enjoy masturbating.

If you masturbate without looking at porn, is it okay? I usually do it at nght before I sleep and I don't look at porn at all. I just can't help myself... I keep getting these big hard ons. I even try wearing tighter underwear to bed so I don't get these erections, but they just come. That I just had to touch it.

What's wrong with me? I am so desperate... help!

Think about this: self gratifications biggest problem is found in the word self. Notice that your issue can only be described with I statements. The self is flesh, it's not going to help you grow spiritually.
Read Romans chapter 7. If you want victory over sin take the focus off yourself and put it on Jesus. Then do whatever you feel is right to do in His presence.

thank you for your response. But what do you mean by looking to Jesus? When you are faced with the temptation of masturbation, what does it mean to look to Jesus? I mean practically.

Also, I still don't really get it: if God created us to be sexual beings, why can't single people pleasure themselves? It's not like its committing a sexual act or you are hurting someone else. Also, isn't it unfair for people who are not married not to be able to gratify themselves? Isn't this too difficult?

Spending time with Jesus, through the word of God, through prayer is the most basic of all Christian precepts.

I have a suggestion. Find a Christian group, a small group of your peers and spend time with them. Somewhere close to you is a group that meets, studies the bible, hangs out and together they learn how God's word applies to the issues they are facing as young Christian men and women.
That's going to work much better for you than posting your opinion on issues on a message board.

God Bless
