    You can sit up all night going over what you can't perceive, or you can take what you do know and live that.

    That's not *nothing*. It is *something* of stupendous proportions.

    Imagine at sculptor getting ready to produce a work of art. He has a lump of clay but that is not *nothing*. The presence of the sculptor is what counts.

    You want to know why Jesus never healed you? Because you believed he could, and beliefs rarely form actions.

    Most of the Christians here will tell you in different ways that it is all your fault and non of gods fault. The bible does say that if you ask you will receive but there always is a catch to explain why people rarely get healed or better.

    The only way I know of to get over addictions is to get good professional help, want to get better and have people around you that are willing to go through the struggle with you and help you.

    Hope you are doing well and don't give up.

    Because you have created a neural pathway in your mid brain that is stimulated to release dopamine when you engage in your addiction - when the dopamine hits your frontal cortex, it releases glutamate, which causes you to form positive memories and forget the guilt and shame you feel afterwards. Basically your Id brain hyjacks your adult brain. The answer is to create competing neural pathways and allow the urges to engage in your unwanted addiction to become a cue to engage in other pleasurable activities. Prayer is very helpful when you created these other pathways

    Also, give yourself a break! You are a human being with hormones - guilt an shame are completely ineffective in stopping unwanted behavior. Accept reality and work on creating other pleasurable activities, which are healthy.

    By the way, I actually have discovered something that really works. Ask me for it if you want it.

    I cannot find any information of its efficacy. Do you have some?
