    A Guide to Self-Control:

    1. Never touch the intimate parts of your body except during
    normal toilet processes.

    2. Avoid being alone as much as possible. Find good company
    and stay in this good company.

    3. If you are associated with other persons having this same
    associate with other people having the same weakness. Don't
    suppose that two of you will quit together, you never will.
    You must get away from people of that kind. Just to be in
    their presence will keep your problem foremost in your mind.
    The problem must be taken OUT OF YOUR MIND for that is where
    it really exists. Your mind must be on other and more
    wholesome things.

    4. When you bathe, do not admire yourself in a mirror. Never
    stay in the bath more than five or six minutes -- just long
    enough to bathe and dry and dress AND THEN GET OUT OF THE
    BATHROOM into a room where you will have some member of your
    family present.

    5. When in bed, if that is where you have your problem for the
    most part, dress yourself for the night so securely that you
    cannot easily touch your vital parts, and so that it would
    be difficult and time consuming for you to remove those
    clothes. By the time you started to remove protective
    clothing you would have sufficiently controlled your
    thinking that the temptation would leave you.

    6. If the temptation seems overpowering while you are in bed,
    SNACK, even if it is in the middle of the night, and even if
    you are not hungry, and despite your fears of gaining
    weight. The purpose behind this suggestion is that you GET
    YOUR MIND ON SOMETHING ELSE. You are the subject of your
    thoughts, so to speak.

    7. Never read pornographic material. Never read about your
    problem. Keep it out of mind. Remember -- "First a
    thought, then an act."
    The thought pattern must be changed. You must not
    allow this problem to remain in your mid. When you
    accomplish that, you soon will be free of the act.

    8. Put wholesome thoughts into your mind at all times. Read
    good books -- Church books -- Scriptures -- Sermons of the
    Brethern [sic, Cistern too?]. Make a daily habit of reading
    at least one chapter of Scripture, preferably from one of the
    four Gospels in the New Testament, or the Book of Mormon. The
    four Gospels -- Matthew, Mark, Luke and John -- above
    anything else in the Bible can be helpful because of their
    uplifting qualities.

    9. Pray. But when you pray, don't pray about this problem, for
    that will tend to keep [it] in your mind more than ever. Pray
    for faith, pray for understanding of the Scriptures, pray
    for the Missionaries, the General Authorities, your friends,
    IN YOUR PRAYERS. KEEP IT _OUT_ of your mind!

    The attitude of a person toward his problem has an affect [sic] on how
    easy it is to overcome. It is essential that a firm commitment be made to
    control the habit. As a person understands his reasons for the behavior, and
    is sensitive to the conditions or situations that may trigger a desire for the
    act, he develops the power to control it.

    We are taught that our bodies are temples of God, and are to be clean
    so that the Holy Ghost may dwell within us. Masturbation is a sinful habit
    that robs one of the Spirit and creates guilt and emotional stress. It is not
    physically harmful unless practiced in the extreme. It is a habit that is
    totally self-centered, and secretive, and in no way expresses the proper use of
    the procreative power given to man to fulfill eternal purposes. It therefore
    separates a person from God and defeats the gospel plan.

    This self-gratifying activity will cause one to lose his self-respect
    testimony becomes weak, and missionary work and other Church callings become
    burdensome, offerins.

    To help in planning an effective program to overcome the problem a
    brieation is given of how the reproductive organs in a young man function.

    The testes in your body are continually producing hundreds of millions
    of reproductive cells call _spermatozoa_. These are moved up a tube called the
    _vas deferens_ to a place called the _ampulla_ where they are mixed with fluids
    from two membranous pouches called _seminal vesicles_ and the _prostate gland_.
    The resultant fluid is calleeminal vesicles are full a signa to the _central
    nervous system_ indicating they are ready to benother, depending on such
    thingsexercise, state of health, etc. everal times a week, for others
    It is normal for the vesicles to be emptied occasionally at night
    durise the emptying come from the cetral nervous system. Often an erotic dream
    is experienced at the same time, and is a part of this normal process. nstead
    ourse, the reproductive system is operating at a more rapid pace, trying to
    keep up with the loss of semen. When he stops the habit, the body will
    continue to produce ahis increased rate, for an indefese are not harmful and
    are to be endured until the normal central nervous system pathway of rel
    During this period of control several things can be done to make the pr
    As one meets with his Priesthood Leader, a program for overcoming
    masturbation can be implemented using some of t Remember it is essential that a
    regur report program be agreed on, so progress can be recognized and failures
    understood and eliminated.

    If you are associated with other persons having this same problem, YOU MUST BREAK OFF THEIR FRIENDSHIP.

    So... I guess some of you will be leaving 12oz... good luck with getting that all under control

    Never read about your problem

    how ironic

    pray for the Missionaries

    Pray that you may one day assume their position

    It is not physically harmful unless practiced in the extreme.

    Hahaha, EXTREME masturbation... like pulling your pud while jumping out of a plane?

    It is a habit that is totally self-centered, and secretive

    Except around here, where you kids won't shut the hell up about it

    I must be a sinful mother fucker then. :D
    I had a conversation the other day with a bible beater and found that I have broken 8 of the 10 commandments. I haven't killed someone and I forget the other. I have something to work for now though.
