Can't stop bad thoughts from coming in my head : need urgent help watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    I had bad friends in Yr 9 who introduced me to sexual content and said it was fine to watch. I knew it was bad but I became addicted to it and cant stop my lust and bad thoughts coming into my head. This problem is ongoing, and becuase my life is becoming worse.
    I did terribly in my GCSEs as I spent more time looking at bad things instead of studying.

    Before problem, I achieved a scholarship to an excellent school, but ever since, I've been spiralling out of control.

    I dont want to ruin my A-Level grades and ruin my life.

    For some time, I thought perhaps finding a girlfriend when I go to uni would help me get rid of this as I would respect and love a woman without thinking badly about them. This worked for a week, but no more.

    Please give advice, guys ( and ladies)

    If these negative thoughts are linked to your awful 'friends' from year nine (been there), you could let your emotions out through writing (poems or stories or whatever), talk to somebody you trust and really open up, or see a professional. It doesn't sound that bad, but if you feel this way (and I can't judge) then you need to decide what will help you because there are many options available: friends, family, teachers, professionals.
    what you could do is try to control your thoughts so if you think your mind is straying into 'unfriendly territory' then stop and think about something more positive - something you enjoy doing or something you need to do. Or if this doesn't work for you, keep your mind busy - do other things like homework, talk to friends, go out with friends or just try to regain perspective about who you want to be and who you are.
    If you feel that you are thinking these things, try to reason with them, tell yourself no and you don't want to think these things.

    Just hold on, OK?
    I hope this helps.

    how often are you looking at bad things every day?
