All of us are prone to wander – in our thoughts and also our actions. But you can take definite steps to avoid sexual sins.
1. Guard your mind.
Don’t read books, look at pictures, or encourage fantasies that stimulate the wrong desires. Be careful what websites you visit. We live in an age where profanity is repent – it takes effort to guard your mind.
2. Keep away from settings and friends that tempt you to sin.
You know better than anyone else when and where you are tempted. Stay away from those places. If you know that certain places or people are a bad influence – stay away from them.
3. Don’t think only of the moment — focus on the future.
Today’s thrill may lead to tomorrow’s ruin.
4. Don’t think you are above temptation.

I know what I hope I would do. But the truth is until you are fced with the same temptation you will never know what you will do.
