how to stop masturbating

Recommended Posts

A friend a mine who had been a Mormon missionary came across this

"guide," circa 1970, on tattered photocopy. In fact, the pages

were stuck together.

 

Anyway, we were so amused by it (esp. "Suggestion 19"), I thought

it deserved a wider audience.

STEPS IN OVERCOMING MASTURBATION

 

Mark E. Petersen

Council of the 12 Apostles

 

 

Be assured that you can be cured of your difficulty. Many have been,

both male and female, and you can be also if you determine that it must be so.

 

This determination is the first step. That is where we begin. You

must decide that you will end this practice, and when you make that decision,

the problem will be greatly reduced at once.

 

But it must be more than a hope or a whish, more than knowing that it

is good for you. It must be actually a DECISION. If you truly make up your

mind that you will be cured, then you will have the strength to resist any

tendencies which you may have and any temptations which may come to you.

 

After you have made this decision, then observe the following specific

guidelines:

 

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

problem, YOU MUST BREAK OFF THEIR FRIENDSHIP. Never

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,

GET OUT OF BED AND GO INTO THE KITCHEN AND FIX YOURSELF A

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,

your families, BUT KEEP THE PROBLEM OUT OF YOUR MIND BY NOT

MENTIONING IT EVER -- NOT IN CONVERSATION WITH OTHERS, NOT

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.

 

 

Suggestions:

 

1. Pray daily, ask for the gifts of the Spirit, that which will

strengthen you against temptation. Pray fervently and out

lout when the temptations are the strongest.

 

2. Follow a program of vigorous daily exercise. The exercises

reduce emotional tension and depression and are absolutely

basic to the solution of this problem. Double your physical

activity when you feel stress increasing.

 

3. When the temptation to masturbate is strong, yell _STOP_ to

those thoughts as loudly as you can in your mind and then

recite a prechosen Scripture or sing an inspirational hymn.

It is important to turn your thoughts away from the selfish

need to indulge.

 

4. Set goals of abstinence, begin with a day, then a week,

month, year and finally commit to never doing it again.

Until you commit yourself to _never again_ you will always be

open to temptation.

 

5. Change in behavior and attitude is most easily achieved

through a changed self-image. Spend time every day

imagining yourself strong and in control, easily overcoming

tempting situations.

 

6. Begin to work daily on a self-improvement program. Relate

this plan to improving your Church service, to improving your

relationships with your family, God and others. Strive to

enhance your strengths and talents.

 

7. Be outgoing and friendly. Force yourself to be with others

and learn to enjoy working and talking to them. Use

principles of developing friendships found in books such as

_How to Win Friends and Influence People_ by Dale Carnegie.

 

8. Be aware of situations that depress you or that cause you to

feel lonely, bored, frustrated or discouraged. These

emotional states can trigger the desire to masturbate as a

way of escape. Plan in advance to counter these low periods

through various activities, such as reading a book, visiting

a friend, doing something athletic, etc.

 

9. Make a pocket calendar for a month on a small card. Carry

it with you, but show it to no one. If you have a lapse of

self control, color the day black. Your goal will be to

have _no black days_. The calendar becomes a strong visual

reminder of self control and should be looked at when you

are tempted to add another black day. Keep your calendar up

until you have at least three clear months.

 

10. A careful study will indicate you have had the problem at

certain times and under certain conditions. Try and recall,

in detail, what your particular times and conditions were.

Now that you understand how it happens, plan to break the

pattern through counter activities.

 

11. In the field of psychotherapy there is a very effective

technique called _aversion therapy_. When we associate

or think of something very distasteful with something which has

been pleasurable, but undesirable, the distasteful thought

and feeling will begin to cancel out that which was

pleasurable. If you associate something very distasteful

with your loss of self-control it will help you to stop the

act. For example, if you are tempted to masturbate, think

of having to bathe in a tub of worms, and eat several of

them as you do the act.

 

12. During your toileting and shower activities leave the

bathroom door or shower curtain partly open, to discourage

being alone in total privacy. Take cool brief showers.

 

13. Arise immediately in the mornings. Do not lie in bed awake,

no matter what time of day it is. Get up and do something.

Start each day with an enthusiastic activity.

 

14. Keep your bladder empty. Refrain from drinking large

amounts of fluids before retiring.

 

15. Reduce the amount of spices and condiments in your food.

Eat as lightly as possible at night.

 

16. Wear pajamas that are difficult to open, yet loose and

not binding.

 

17. Avoid people, situations, pictures or reading materials that

might create sexual excitement.

 

18. It is sometimes helpful to have a physical object to use

in overcoming this problem. A Book of Mormon, firmly held in

hand, even in bed at night has proven helpful in extreme

cases.

 

19. In very severe cases it may be necessary to tie a hand to

the bed frame with a tie in order that the habit of

masturbating in a semi-sleep condition can be broken. This

can also be accomplished by wearing several layers of

clothing which would be difficult to remove while half

asleep.

 

20. Set up a reward system for your successes. It does not have

to be a big reward. A quarter in a receptacle each time you

overcome or reach a goal. Spend it on something which

delights you and will be a continuing reminder of your

progress.

 

21. Do not let yourself return to any past habit or attitude

patterns which were part of your problem. _Satan Never Gives

Up_. Be calmly and confidently on guard. Keep a positive

mental attitude. You can win this fight! The joy and

strength you will feel when you do will give your whole life

a radiant and spiritual glow of satisfaction and fulfillment.

If you really want to know how...

After you're "finished" keep doing it for about 20 minutes. You will soon come to associate masturbation with pain, and won't do it anymore.

It said not to read pornography. Good I don't but I do Watch on the good ol VCR. Didn't say nothing about downloading either. Did anyone see that movie "The Big Hit" with Marky Mark, Lou Diamond Phillips,Antonio Sabato Jr and Bokeem Woodbine from that HBO movie Strapped. That Bokeem fool was obsessed with jacking off. He was always exercising his right hand to make it stronger. That movie was funny as hell and violent. A must see despite the faggot pretty boys.
