Thinking out loud

Hey everyone. So I am leaving on my mission soon, and I've been sober from MB for about a month. No real problems with anything else. But honestly, it's so hard to live without MB. I know I will be okay once I'm married, but I am horny like literally every day nonstop. I try to stay busy but I was just wondering, is it this hard for every missionary?

Comments:

The Lord's Work    
"Created, thank you so much for your decision to serve and to be sober. On my mission, I noticed that I still had lustful thoughts every once in a while, but you are so involved in the Lord's work, that it is not quite as bad. I'm sure it is difficult for many missionaries. Keep yourself busy. If you slip up, let the Atonement cover your weakness and repent!"

Yes    
"Yes, you are totally normal. Almost every missionary, male and female, has a virtually constant sexual pull going on in their brains. The goal is to realize it is normal and even healthy and not obsess about it. When you loose yourself doing the Lord's work the sinful thoughts and feelings don't have hold over you the same way, but you are still human and attraction is still there. Stay calm and Missionary On!

Oh, and btw about the marriage making the masturbation equation better, that isn't true, but I wont start a big ol Maddy lecture on that right now. Just an FYI for a later time."

"I am a addict. Obviously that is the nature of this blog. But I found this talk that some up the environment of temptation very succinctly. http://speeches.byu.edu/?act=viewitem&id=652 Good to know he is a prophet of God. I was barely one year old when he gave this speech."

Keep at it    
"Keep up with your progress. Once you're in your mission, your mission president still have judgement over you. I guarantee that most of not ask missionaries have masturbation going on. Please don't feel bad about it, many missionaries go home out of guilt not because they were sent home.

Good luck!"

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "

— Dallin H. Oaks
