This will probably get moved to the Garden of Gethsemane, but, have you ever read "Every Young Man's Battle" by Fred Stoeker? He's got a couple of books out that deal with exactly what you're going through. I've read both pertaining to men, and I can honestly say they were a HUGE help. Here's his website. (http://www.fredstoeker.com/everyman.shtml) There is a message board on there as well. It's a very very tough battle, but you can come out victorious. There are ton's of passages of scripture, especially in Romans, that can provide help. I've got a meeting in a few minutes, i'll post some of them when I get back.

As promised, here they are:
Matt. 5:28, Mark 7:21-23, Acts 15:29, Rom. 13:12-13, 1Cor. 5:11, 6:13, 6:18, 2 Cor. 12:21, Gal. 5:16 & 19, Eph 5:3-4, Col 3:5-6, 1Thes. 4:3-5 & 7, Heb. 12:16, 13:4, 1Pet 4:3, Jude 7, Rev 2:14, 20, 21:8.
they give me strenght to flee from temptation. To get behind the Word of God and let Christ fight for me.

In addition to the above. The best way to not give into temptation is to not put yourself in a place that is open to temptation and acting on it is possible. For instance if you can't go out with your girlfriend without going to far then you don't go out just the two of you. If you enjoy risky behavior take up skydiving, bungie jumping, dirt biking or some other thrilling activity and enjoy the endorphine rush of doing things that are ok.

exactly. It's exactly what scripture says. If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. Meaning, if looking at images or people starts the fires burning, don't look. it's a hard habit to break, but it can be retrained.
If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. same thing, retraining old habits.
if your foot causes you to sin....if going places starts the fires, the don't go. Sometimes that's not an easy choice, but it's got to be made.
The great thing is that you don't have to go this alone. Christ is with us, always. AND you've got a huge family of brothers and sisters to help, all you gotta do is ask.
