Steem Inspiration Contest | FREEDOM AT LAST
Hello friends, we are all brought up in different ways and different environments. Upbringing and environment could affect and child positively or negatively. I was taught well by my parents. They both directed my path the right way but the environment and my friend's influence me negatively. One thing about some friends is that they take away the good characters your parent taught and replace them with the bad ones. So, little by little I got influence by my environment and my bad friends.
Eventually, I was influenced to do drugs, alcohol, gambling, fornicate, pornographic, masturbation and some other negative things. I got addicted to alcohol, gambling, fornication, pornographic, and masturbation. One day I thought to myself that I had to let go of these things. Though, it wasn't easy to let go but had to do it. So, I planned on how to let go of these things.
Firstly, I dealt with alcohol and my decision was firm on it. Though I had the urge to drink. I won the fight against alcohol. What I did was that I stayed away from places and people that create the urge to drink.
Secondly, I dealt with gambling. Gambling was I little bit difficult to let go but I won the fight.
Thirdly, I dealt with fornication. I had to stay away from some particular people.
Pornography and Masturbation were the most difficult to let go of. I got to engage in pornography and masturbation before I learned to drink, gamble, fornicate and some other negative things from my friends. I wanted to let go but I couldn't and I had to know to encourage me. Even if had talked about it to some people around me, they wouldn't have seen anything wrong with it or some could probably mock me. That is the kind of environment I grew up in. Since I had no one to encourage me, I encouraged myself and I won the fight. My Story
Knowing fulling well that pornography and masturbation is very difficult to let go. It is proving to be equivalent to been addicted to cocaine, you may want someone to talk too. You can join the telegram channel Steem Inspiration
