it disappeared

How do people control their lust, when they are all together, naked? Doesn't the Bible say it's wrong?<P>Only Native Residents may post here.

it disappeared

lust that is. I had looked at porn a number of times but it never was an addiction. I would get disgusted with one session and stay away form that for weeks or months. for me it was an internal recurring extreme desire for sexual pleasure. for a long time I've asked God to purify my mind, got drawn into investigating naturism some year and a half go. I've read occasionally on the mychainsaregone website. tried to incorporate the ideas into my thought process. but that recurring desire kept returning, and most of the time it did I'd fall for it. When I resisted it'd just get stronger and stronger until it was so powerful I'd get mentally worn out trying to resist and finally give in. I thought maybe it was just part of my natural hormone cycles and would never be free from it. Felt like i was sexually hyperactive and just couldn't stop it. Been that way ever since the beginning, which was at the age of maybe 13 when I first discovered the feeling.


But some weeks ago time was passing and it didn't return, been quite a while now and it still hasn't come back. I don't know where it went. Just vanished. I think God must have finally taken it away. Since it was really strong right up to the last time it came. Not a gradual reduction. Wonderful freedom of mind it is to be free from a lifelong affliction.

Oh the thoughts still try to return weakly, but it's become very easy to say no to them and they are gone. Whereas previously I'd say no to them, and they'd refuse to take the hint, I could say no to them with all my might, and they'd just turn around and come on stronger the next minute.
I don't know what happened but something did.

Maybe it's just taken this long for the naturist ideals--the idea that seeing nudity does not automatically make you lust--to travel the 18 inches or so from your head to your heart. :D But keep up the lookout! It's possible that, when you least expect the old thought patterns, they'll crop up again.

I've found that one of the best ways to keep those old thought patterns at bay is by regularly experiencing the truth through naturist activities. The more your spirit, mind and body are accustomed to "the real thing," the less power these poisonous images have over you.

Praise God for your deliverance! :dance:
You can live your life in fear--or you can live your life.

yes I think participating in naturism more would be a definite reinforcement. The concepts are starting to have effect even before actual social naturistic participation. Havn't got started just because of low income and limited travel opportunities. But getting into trucking may change that.
