  • stay away from the one you lust after, or try to find more than sexuality in those you speak with.
  • Masturbate. Solves a whole lotta problems caused by stupidity.
  • It's a natural part of humans' sexuality. You don't have to "overcome" it. If you feel like it interferes with other aspects of your life, seek help.
  • By refocusing your thoughts and your visual focus. If you are sitting around lusting over someone, then change your thoughts by prayer or reading the Bible! If you see someone and start to lust over them, turn your head and look away!
  • Grow up
  • Reason with yourself if what you are lusting for will make you suffer or hurt anyone's feelings. Try to focus what will happen if you let this lust overcome you and that will be the first step in overcoming it yourself
  • It happens. The issue is not overcoming it. The issue is what you choose to do about it.
  • Why do Christians abhor 'lust'? In German the word means a love of life. I would have thought your belief was that the pleasures of sexuality were something given to you by your God. Why, then, do you try to suppress them? Do you think your God would appreciate your turning your back on his gift to you?
  • You don't. Lust is there for a reason.
  • by wanking
  • There is a way to overcome that problem, and this method is basic for all religions. In Christian terms, the key is to get back to the original Gospel, which was about increasing the light rather than the "gospel" we hear these days about sacrifice for sins. This will explain the difference between those two gospels: http://gospelenigma.com So the formula is really quite simple: Increase the light to dispel the darkness. And that very same resource (above) will explain the traditional way to increase the light.
  • a nice toy with full battery power or getting my mind on other things.
  • Why would you want too? That's like asking "How does one get over getting the most out of life?" Just channel it appropriately :-) +5
  • Lust is incredibly powerful and the more you think about the person at the centre of it the more potent the feelings become, fantasies develop and it can get out of control. If, for whatever reason you cannot have the person you desire, the best thing I think to do is try put yourself off them..they're not as amazing as you think. Consider all the 'off-putting' things they do and the negative qualities in them rather than focusing on all the things that make you want them.
  • Shoot lots of heroin...it'll kill that right off. You won't even wanna go pee if you can help it.
  • medroxyprogesterone acetate works wonders. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_castration
  • Not sure. I'd rather embrace it, than overcome it :)
  • Change your focus and pray.
  • Boxing, martial arts, physical violence of almost any kind.
  • I just go with the flow.
  • Masturbate.
  • Do it with the one you lust for, I havent gotten over the one I lust for in the 10 years I have known her.
  • indulge it and get it out of your system +5
  • Talk to her for awhile?! ;-)
  • Guarding your eyes and you thoughts help. If you see someone you get lustful thoughts for, looks elsewhere. Also, be aware of things all around you that can influence you. The lyrics of the music you listen to, the television you watch, the websites you visit (many harmless websites have very provocative advertisements on them so this is tricky). Find an accountability partner and meet with them a few times a week. + points for being willing to ask a question that most people will never understand the importance of. Your spouse (or future spouse) will appreciate your desire to guard your heart.
  • By discharing the sex on playing with your sex part and discharge it.
  • I have learned to devote more time to edifying things like study and serving other people. Sometimes, I devote myself to speaking out against one of the many ills of society. (It's a bit of a distraction, but the energy gets put toward something productive and not as self-serving as masturbation.) I admit: lust is not easy to overcome and I do not always succeed, but I do apply myself toward resisting it... and someone usually benefits from it.
  • It depends on what you consider lust. Lust is the strong desire to have something that is not yours. Humbly and respectfully looking at a pretty girl is not lust, if that's what you're asking.
  • I'm finding that the best way is to break through it, learn to live with it. Not succomb to it, and neither to seek to relieve it. It comes and goes in waves, so at its height I just say to myself I will get through it. After a while it subsides. It is very difficult to do, but I think it will break my previous habits. Thanks for all your answers.
