Freedom from Masturbation
Revision A, updated 04/13/2010

by Paul Cook

"Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?"  Proverbs 6:27 NIV

Masturbation is often that one topic that people (especially Christians) really don't like to talk about.  It's not something that is just a male problem these days, as many women also secretly struggle with it as well.  Our culture tells us that there is nothing wrong with masturbation, yet our conscience often tells us otherwise... 

I've written this study in order to encourage people at the very least to refrain from masturbation.  Perhaps more importantly, I've written it to help people find and remove the roots involved with a  masturbation addiction.   Once you have dealt with the roots, controlling/eliminating the behavior becomes much less of a challenge. 

This study is intended as an addendum or follow-on to my Freedom Journey 1 study which addresses many of the foundational issues involved with recovering from sex addiction.  If you haven't yet gone through Freedom Journey 1, I heartily encourage you to do so. 

I remember as an adolescent how I struggled with shame and condemnation concerning this act over and over.  Even so, the shame and condemnation did not empower me to get free.  I continued to feed my habit with porn and promiscuity for the next 20 years, but eventually returned to God for help to finally jettison the habit.  He responded and I found complete freedom.   I discovered that life without masturbation was not only possible, but also enjoyable.   

This study will help you:
