u are showing ur lack of emunah in hashem by acting out since you constitute the fact that engaging in relations with your wife (this applies to single ppl also) will not satisfy you as Hashem has chosen your partner for you.

Instead of thinking about acting out you could be calling someone who'd love to hear from you.

Instead of thinking about acting out you could be cleaning the mess in your office/bedroom/computer bag/pockets.
wouldn't that make you feel better than belly-flopping into filth?

Once you try to "reason" with the Y"H, you have already lost.  Avoid a conversation at all costs! Don't make eye contact

the best way to reason with him is to have him peer down the business end of a weapon

The reason I'm acting as if I'm pregnant, is because I'm expecting. I should be accepting.

When you feel like you will "fall apart" if you don't act out....

You can give Hashem the nachas ruach of seeing that

you are willing to feel like you are "falling apart"....    for the sake of keeping HIS mitzvois.

Every minute that you feel like your falling apart is a separate korban to the RBS"O kaviyochol.

....even if after a while a person may end up falling chas vsholom....

You were makriv many korbanos.

Acting out isolates you from your family and real friends
Baby steps.
If the road is pulling you down, it's a sign that you are going uphill, so just press harder on the gas!

Have a great day - unless, of course, you made other plans.

well, you know it's a constant struggle - ok, not like it was when i first started, but it's still a struggle.for now, i;'m focusing on 2 things:

1 - the feeling of being clean - i mean the feeling, not the knowledge of being clean.i'm trying to look at it as if it's a HOLY feeling.you see, i need to replace the feeling of acting out with a different kind of feeling - as you know.it has to be a feeling, because knowledge alone is not enough to replace that feeling of acting out.

and

2 - the terrible way i'll feel if i do not remain clean - how will i face my rabbi, myself, my wife, and G-d?
