Wrestling with P is like wrestling against a love of food. With food, if we wait to make a decision on whether we want cake to when it is sitting right in front of us... the battle will be really hard (or just lost). Instead, if we tell our personal chef (Okay, maybe that part is made up) that we don't want any cake around, that we plan to lose weight right now, and that we want healthy choices. We have at least temporarily stacked the odds in our favor.

It is the same when we turn on the TV or when we are out where there are things that we should not look at. In my article “A Daily Reboot,” I advised making 2 things that we struggle with into “daily habits.” I decided to work on always making clean TV choices as my first one, and being ready to turn aggressively from lust as my second one. Now I am “daily” working on these two things before temptation hits.

Now I am starting to become obsessed with clean TV choices. That is some statement coming from the person who was the worst porn addict on this site two years ago.

Second, turning from lust is always a habit that is good to improve on.

Third, to fight against food we need to plan morning, noon, and night. Consistent planning day in and day out. Some of these supermodels have near zero discipline, but they have an iron-clad plan to make millions of dollars, which leads to an iron-clad plan to eat exactly the number of calories that will allow them to make that money.

Forth, plan how you will fight back, plan which articles you need most, plan what you will do instead of things that lead to temptation, plan how you will go to war with bad thoughts, and plan what you will think about instead.

We will always struggle to be perfect, but we need not struggle to have a perfect plan.

The heroin addict says I can't help myself, I could not resist. Some scoff at that, but I believe them. Once they allow life to overwhelm them, they can't say no.

Yesterday I allowed something to overwhelm me. I never blatantly looked, I never thought I crossed the line, but at some point, I knew God was not thrilled with me. Background, I have my line in the sand that I refuse to cross, but is “My line” exactly where God wants it to be? Not likely.

Today I am starting a stricter line. I often say, “Always work on the habit of turning from lust.” Yesterday, I was duped into getting sloppy again. Today, I am upping the standards again, and... the Holy Spirit doesn't seem a million miles away (like He did yesterday).

Second, for some, risky TV overwhelms, bad finances do it, strained relationships overwhelm, or, bad thoughts get us. Consider spending 5 minutes to pray about and write down what slams you.

Third, how often can you resist after you are overwhelmed?

Fourth, do you have access to information on how to go to war with what overwhelms you? Can you systematically look through old articles to see how to attack the problem? Today, consider making it a goal to go through “x” amount of articles daily to start to make a list of how to attack what overwhelms you.

Fifth, consider doing a Google search “Verses ____.” Fill in the blank with what overwhelms you. Then you can study, pray over, and print out verses that will solve one of the biggest things that bring you down.

Sixth, Reboot has a search function as well. Try putting what overwhelms you into it and see what turns up.

Seventh, James 3:2 For we all stumble and sin in many ways. If anyone does not stumble in what he says [never saying the wrong thing], he is a perfect man [fully developed in character, without serious flaws], able to bridle his whole body and rein in his entire nature [taming his human faults and weaknesses].” Consider praying twice daily:

“Father, take away this spirit of lust, and help me to control my tongue.”

Finally, make it a priority to collect information that helps you battle things that overwhelm you. Doing so will give you more things to turn to when bad things happen.

If I look with lust or if I stare at something that is borderline, my fun goes up a bit (for a short time) and my joy is ruined for a long time.
Looking at the wrong things strengthens our habit of overestimating short-term fun. Consider praying:

“Father, help me to run from lust, and help me to stop overestimating wrongful short-term fun.”

It would be hard to pray this prayer too much. I need to pray it a bunch, and I need to stop overestimating pleasures which get me in trouble.

Second, we always underestimate the destruction that lust causes. To break that habit pray for 5 minutes per day over the verse that says: “The wages of sin is death.” For 5 minutes daily, ask God what that verse means. God is not keeping any aspect of that verse a secret. He will show you exactly what it means if you keep praying about it.

Third, when we have a regular focus on the verses for quitting, we naturally know what God wants, and we learn the destruction of overestimating the wrong things.

Fourth, fill your mind with good things. noted the following:

“Romans 12:2b goes on to say “…but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Be transformed? What does it mean to have to have a renewed and transformed mind?

A transformed mind is one that draws its thoughts and motives from an increasingly vibrant relationship with God. Any time you “put off the old,” you must also “put on the new” (Ephesians 4:22, 24). Hollow and deceptive fantasies need to be replaced by something more wonderful. If you do, the Scriptures promise that you will “be renewed in the spirit of your mind.” (Ephesians 4:23)

A new and transformed mind is filled with thoughts of Jesus and His love as it was revealed on the Cross. A transformed mind meditates day and night on the life and power available through His Word. A transformed mind causes the flow of your life to be reversed, so that instead of everything flowing toward you—your wants being preeminent and your desires being catered to—things are flowing toward others. You must come to a place where you are truly putting others ahead of yourself. In the same way you once gave over to lust, you must be given over to meeting the needs of others.

God wants to renew and transform our minds. He wants to transform our ugly, self-centered, lust-filled minds and give each one of us a “beautiful mind,” one that truly pleases and glorifies Him.”

Finally, focus first on fighting back the bad, then replace it with something great. That is how we gain momentum.

James 3:17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is, first of all, pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

If your thoughts often stray toward lust, it is vital to have a daily plan for what you will think about instead. First, daily Bible reading should be a habit. Second, we can sometimes form our plan from that study, (or you could save the first article in this thread). In this example from James, we could choose to pray and focus on wisdom, being pure, peace, love, and kindness as well as 5 other Christian traits.

Consider dedicating a page in your quitting notebook and titling it “Daily Plan.” Next, write out as many of the 9 things to think about that appeal to you. Then pick one for today. For today's example, I am picking peace. Consider praying:

“Father, take away this spirit of lust and fill me with Your peace.”

If you set an hourly alarm to remind you to pray and think about “todays” plan, you will learn a ton. #1 With your first alarm you may be reminded... I hate that I am driven ruthlessly by lust. Peace is way better. #2 With your 2nd alarm you may be reminded: People like me more when I stay calm. #3 With your 3rd alarm you may be reminded: Focusing on good things makes me think less about bad things. With your 4th alarm you may be reminded: With peace, I can enjoy a simple walk in the park, a clean TV show, a simple conversation with a friend.

But I really can't tell you the most important benefit to focusing on “todays” Christian plan, because the #1 thing it adds is that it allows the Holy Spirit to snap us out of our self-centered existence for a few minutes. Then, He can give us a little push in the exact direction where we need to go.

If we do that every hour this year... we will be thinking in a new way.

Yesterday, I was told of a person who allowed sin to overwhelm them to the point of darkness, depression, and worse. Someone close to me was traumatized by their involvement in the situation, so I told them that sin always causes something to start to die, or partially die.

John 8:12 ESV Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
Consider praying: “Father, help me flee from sin, show me how to follow You.”

Romans 8:5-8 ESV For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

James 4:7 ESV Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
We submit to God when we commit to a war against sin. We submit when we plan our new thoughts daily. This is a very intentional way of pleasing, and loving God. There are 3 parts to the above verse. #1 submit to God, #2 resist lust (with scripture if overwhelmed), and #3... then, satan will flee from you.

The more intentional we are about the above process, the more foolproof it starts to be.

Second, know the results of the wages of sin (which the Bible says “Is death.” Do a partial memorization of Romans 5:5-8.

Third, if darkness is squeezing you, pound it out with daily Bible reading. Pound it out by reading the above 3 verses 3 times each. Pound it out by doing a Google search “Verses Light.” Jesus is the Light of the world. Repent, then pound some of the verses about His light into you.

To overcome depression we need to identify what caused it. Once we do that we need to identify what scriptures we need to print out to overcome the depression, so we can read them daily. If anger or alcohol caused your depression, finding 30 verses to study daily for one month is a simple solution. But what if there are several factors, what if the problem is complex and the solution seems a million miles away?

In complicated situations, it is best to pray 5-10 minutes daily about what scripture search you need to do in Google. It may take a week, or even a month of prayer to figure out the scriptures that you need to “pound out” what is causing the depression.

Why does “it” need to be pounded out? When sin or things like that lead to depression, the problem is usually not the events that you are going through. The problem is that there is something in you, which came out because of certain events, and “it” needs to be pounded out or it will cause problems again.

We think wrong and that causes massive problems. When we study Bible verses on lust we finally start to think right about lust.

When we pray enough, the Holy Spirit will show us what verses we need to use to pound out what is causing the specific problem regarding depression. Then, when we study and pray over the verses, the problem will begin to be pounded out.

Psalm 25:9 ESV
He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.”

Consider praying:

“Father, help me to be humble so I can find what is right. Show me Your way.”

Psalm 119:105 ESV Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
Work daily on this and insist that this verse is true. Work daily until that depression is lifted, and until you are a shining light in a dark world.

Life is more blessed and filled with Light when we submit to Christ.

Pick 3 things to submit to Christ so that your life improves. Things like submitting thoughts. How can you plan today and every day this week so that you will think about a specific prayer every hour so that you start to replace bad thoughts with good ones?

Second, how many times do you need to say, “God's way is best” this week to remind yourself that submitting to His ways is best?

Finally, pick one sin that you will submit to Christ at His cross. To do this, do a Google search, “Verses ________.” Pick things like anger, frustration, lying, or any other sin or emotion that plagues you. Then, study, pray over, and print out those verses so that you can start to pound out that sin. The more we pound out sin and submit to Christ, the more self-control we start to have, and the more we start to be blessed.

One key to getting back up after a slip-up is to attack a base problem that helped lead to the slip-up.
We can't allow things like frustration, regret, self-pity, or 100 things like that to sink us. When we do a Google search “Verses frustration” we now have something we can print out or write down to study and pray over so that God can help us think and act in a new way.

People hurt people verbally and in other ways. We all experience it. But when it upsets us we have two options. First, we can dig into scripture, pray about what it says, and learn and grow. Or, we can let it fester until it drags us down in darkness.

Today, start to make it a habit to attack basic problems and issues that start to drag you down. Consider praying:

“Father, teach me how to handle _________.” Insert what sinks you into the blank. Or:

“Father, give me wisdom to learn how to overcome ________.”

To find joy we need to overcome day in and day out. In order to do that we need to realize that millions of people have overcome the frustration, or ________ that we struggle with.

Today, improve your expertise in learning how to allow scripture to help you to overcome.

Last, improve your expertise in attacking “before” you are dragged totally into the mud. The earlier in the process that you start to fight back, the more often you will avoid a future fall.

Do you know for a fact that porn causes destruction and leads to problems and frustrations? On a scale of 1 to 100, how well do you “know” that the previous statement is a fact?

Psalm 145:20 ESV The Lord preserves all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.

John 14:21 He that hath My commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me; and he that loveth Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will manifest Myself to him.”

John 14:21 explains who loves God. Psalm 145:20 explains what is happening in our lives. If we memorize Psalm 145:20 our number about how well we “know” that P and lust lead to destruction will go way up. Consider memorizing, and quoting this verse often.

Second, over the next 90 days test if this harsh verse is true for you. Do bad things happen when you do the opposite of scripture?

Finally, spend extra time praying about being in God's will. Doing so is a home run in the fight against addiction.

This is a great! For someone like me, hobbling my way into the realm of prayer and making my first attempts at communicating with the Lord, I think this is a very simple and attainable goal. I'm glad to know that search engine functions allow one to quickly pick out verses for any given emotional state or circumstance. I like the concept of "pounding out the sin"... soon enough I foresee that it will get easier to deal with emerging emotions with time. Only on a personal note, would rather search with DuckDuckGo or Brave rather than with privacy-assaulting Google! ;)

Brittany Littrell noted that Jesus said:

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). The technique He is referring to in this passage is simple; cast your cares on Jesus (Psalms 55:22; 1 Peter 5:7). This solution involves a principle and a promise. Here, Jesus speaks to the promise of rest and rejuvenation through the principle of repentance and reliance on Him. If we turn to Him, we are assured we will learn a restorative way to manage tension, regardless of the challenges that come our way.”

Second, when biblical David praised the Lord when bad things happened he went around killing bears, lions, and giants. Attack your stress and darkness with constant praise like he did.

Third, try to make it a permanent habit to always rejoice as Paul did. To start doing what Paul did when bad things happened, pray:

“Father, I will count it all joy that ________ happened. I will trust in You and I will keep my joy.”

God wants every single one of us to be glorious shining lights in a dark, dark world. If we are pure and have repented before God, we have every right to ask God for a little light and joy in our lives even when stress is killing us.

While Paul was becoming the great “Paul” he likely prayed a prayer like the one above a 1000 times in one week after bad things happened. He likely said “Praise the Lord” 2000 times, and he would virtually “always” cast his cares on Jesus.

That's why Paul was really good with stress.

Frustration rises if we don't know if we can ever quit for good. Here is one idea about how to chart your current progress. Many chart their progress by how many days clean they have. That is good. But... instead of hearing that one has 18 days clean, I would rather hear:

I have 10 days clean and I now have the habit of daily Bible reading.

I have 11 days clean and I am working daily on the habit of turning from lust.

I have 12 days clean and I am working daily on the habit of thinking new thoughts.

I have 9 days clean and I am working daily on the habit of fighting back with scripture when I am overwhelmed.

We should track our days clean, but we should also track the habits we are fighting to now have.

If you have 12 days clean and 12 days with 3 new habits implemented every day... you have accomplished something great.

Finally, I am busy trying to do things God's way. I am busy trying to fulfill my purpose. People are trying to say things that should frustrate me. But I don't have time to think about the silly things (that are the opposite of what the Bible says) that other people say to me. Consider praying:

“Father, I will count my frustrations as all joy. I will trust in You and I will keep my joy.”

Paul likely prayed a prayer like the one above a 1000 times in one week after bad things happened. He likely said “Praise the Lord” 2000 times, and he would virtually “always” cast his cares on Jesus. That's how Paul avoided frustration.

New good habits give us power over bad habits. What good habits would be good for you?

Today, something important went bad. To fight back I decided to "Rejoice in the Lord" since the Bible tells us to do that. When I started doing that I had less stress, and I kept at least some of my joy.
It is hard to rejoice when things break, when people rip us, when finances fail, and when 100 other bad things happen.
Why did I write about how Paul rejoiced (when bad things happened) for 2 days in a row? Because we all have bad things happening, and most of us have the habit of turning to wrong things when things go bad. Here is an example of a bad thing. The car brakes go bad and the bill is $999. Ouch! Consider praying:
"Father, I rejoice that my brakes went bad. I praise You today. I will keep my joy." Then pray it about 10 more times. Why? Because, God told us to react that way, and if we react that way, someday God will do even more through us. Then... our joy will increase even more.
Make it a habit to "handle" bad things. It is a key to quitting.

Well-Known Member wrote that you can handle problems “If you “Already have made a habit, a practiced skill of turning to the Lord, trusting God in both good and bad times.”

Yesterday my quitting drinking/drugs website crashed and I turned to the Lord for about two minutes, and then tried to solve the problem my way. Hello, my way is always stupid. I wrote for 3 straight days about how to handle problems, but I couldn't turn to the Lord for a full three minutes!

If you want to quit fast you need to always be upping the standards on how you handle problems. Today I will add several verses that you can print out as part of your saved information on how to handle problems.

#1 “Acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” – Proverbs 3:5-6

#2 “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4

When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. – Psalm 34:17
They also added that “God wants you to call to Him for help in humility and conscientious righteousness. He will help you in many creative ways, if only you ask and surrender your will to His will.”

Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me. – Psalm 50:15

Yesterday I solved my problems my way, which is why I am completely worn out today. Today, I learned a lot from the scriptures they recommended.

On Sunday I wrote that we should pray, "Father, I rejoice that my _______ went bad. I praise You today. I will keep my joy." Then pray it about 10 more times.”

Um, yeah... I prayed that prayer 2 times after my site crashed, and then complained and moped for about 5 hours. Please learn from my stupidity.

Scripture has given us a dozen things we can do when life runs us over. We just have to choose to do them when it happens.

Consider making it a habit to pray for 2 or 3 minutes before picking a new show to watch (especially on streaming services). Doing so acknowledges God, and it may help us to be more careful and wiser.
High-risk TV and movies have led to several hundred million falls. Give God His proper respect by praying first and by praying while the show is playing. He is watching also.
Second, consider copying and pasting all of the ideas regarding TV watching into one Word file, or Google doc (My old articles have a lot of ideas). Then delete the things that are not vital so that you can print out a page or two of things to "always" focus on while you watch TV. That way you will always be reminded to do things like praying:
"Father, help me to turn immediately from lust, please show me how to live."
Third, I worked constantly to develop good TV/movie-watching habits. Now I am starting to have good habits.
Finally, the habits that I consistently work on to fight lust have made my life better, and better.

The first step to taking thoughts captive is to make it a goal to do it “All the time.” There are two aspects of this. The first is to fight daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly for clean thoughts. The second is to have clean things to think about at our fingertips. Consider having a written “Top 7 things to think about.” Then add and subtract from it to keep it fresh. If we don't have something good to replace the bad... the bad will win.

James 4:17- Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.

Second, always make one of your thoughts or prayers that you focus on... about purpose. Why does the verse above say that not doing good is a sin? Because God knows that if we don't do good we will “always” get into sin anyways. Consider praying twice daily:

“Father, help me to turn from lust, and help me to care about people and souls.”

Third, pick one verse about lust to focus on often. If you focus on a great verse for the next few days it will be “in you.” Once it is “in you” it will add power to your prayers.

1st Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

When we are right with God we have protection against the devil. When we do what satan wants us to do our protection breaks down.

If lust is putting you at risk, it is wise to increase your protection with scripture. I often recommend praying for 20 minutes per day over verses about lust. These verses increase our wisdom, increase our knowledge and help us fight the devil.

In my 21-day plan, this praying is very important, but I feel like many people don't think they can do everything in the 21-day plan every day. But even if you have zero confidence in quitting, and even if you struggle left and right to do everything in it, it is still wise to pray for 20 minutes daily over 3 verses about lust.

Why? Read the verse again. I am a fully qualified expert in doing things that allowed the devil to completely shred me, sift me, and almost destroy me. Here I usually say “Learn from my stupidity.” But in this case, I did learn, I have turned to scripture, and it has turned out very well.

Second, today consider making a commitment to God. If our commitment includes “No limits, no distractions, just a full dedication to doing His will. Then the devil can roar all he wants, but in that scenario, his power fades and fades.

Finally, I am just like you. I knew I could never quit. But one day I did commit. That day was almost two years ago. Try it, you will like it.

Yesterday, I was on vacation, and through a series of unfortunate events, I was left stranded at the beach
in western Michigan. Several people were supposed to go to the beach, but then at the last minute, they
had to do other things first. The plan was that they would meet up with me about 90 minutes later.
The beach was spectacular, 15 boats were anchored offshore, and people were playing spike ball and
many other games. Then I noticed that 3 hours had passed, then 30 more minutes. I did not have my
phone with me. Then I started getting worried, or angry, or both, not realizing whether they tried to
meet me and missed me, or whether they just didn't care.
As the day started getting bleak I remembered all of the articles I had written over the last ten days
about obeying the Bible's command to rejoice in all things. So I started to rejoice by praying, "Father, I
thank you that I am stranded here, I will not lose my joy." Well... for my first 4-5 prayers I felt nothing,
but I kept praying it more and more.
Then I remembered that one of my goals this week was to increase in love. So I also prayed about
increasing in love. But the truth was, I was getting stressed, annoyed, tired, and at the 4-hour mark,
wondering if there had been a severe car crash or something.
In situations like this satan always attacks. I had been turning from staring at all of the spectacular
females on the beach all day. But once I started letting things like anger and fear in, my temptation
ramped way up. Now I was starting to struggle to turn away. Then it hit me, this is one of the many
reasons that the Bible commands us to rejoice. I started to pray that prayer more fervently, and started
to pray more about turning from lust.
As I continued to fight and pray I started to have a strong awareness that God was there, just the way He says
that He is always there. But then, abruptly, my party pulled up and my challenge on the beach was over.
A couple of people had tried to meet up with me earlier, and they misheard where I said I would be.

Second, one note: many reading this are in a place where the beach is completely off-limits at this point in your
recovery. That is smart. Stay away from the beach until you have an established habit of turning from
Finally, this experience showed how important prayer and rejoicing in all things are. More proof that
what the Bible says can help us massively in life.

I wrote that life is a grand illusion, and when we get wrong habits the price we pay is destruction. We all think wrong. To start to think right we study the Bible.

James 5:16 ESV “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”

Today, will you commit to setting an alarm and praying for 5 minutes for people on this site? Today, will you commit to focusing on righteousness so that your prayer has great power?

To break free of the grand illusion start making it a habit to “list” what is destroyed, or dies, or starts to die, or partially dies when we give in to lust.

Here is my list. Over the last week I did not stare at any female at the beach or on TV, but, we all have our silly games to get around the rules. We need to check clearly that female over there, to make sure whether she is someone we need to turn away from. Or, we need to stop forward fasting early to make sure we don't miss something from the show.

I did bend the rules this week so I will try to list what was affected. #1 I always pray for boldness. When I slip into sin my boldness quickly fades. #2 I always pray to increase in love. When I slip into lust, my ability to love starts to die, and sometimes is completely dead (temporarily). #3 When I slip into lust or sin, relationships become a struggle. #4 When I bend the rules, anger starts to rule again. #5 When I bend the rules, I am running from joy. When I fight to repent rapidly and fight to stay clean, I begin running toward joy again.

Second, the list becomes filled with a lot of really destructive things if we continue to do wrong.

Today, start your list of what happens when you fall into lust. It will help inspire you to act differently next time. Today, commit to being in God's will by committing to praying for people at this site for 5 minutes daily. These are the types of actions that start to put you on the road toward freedom, and joy.
