Everyone has temptations. This world is full of them, and even though no two people are alike, our struggles happen to be similar. The difference is weather we allow ourselves to fall into Satan's trap or jump over his hurdle of lies. But no one can overcome every sinful tempting thing that comes strutting into their life. Each and everyone of us falls into that pit sometimes. And it may seem like there isn't any way to resist, but there is always a way out. God always gives us a choice. We don't always see the choice leading us away from the sin because we don't look for it or we just give up on trying to avoid it, but it's there.
One thing that I know definitely helps me when I'm facing struggles, is prayer. I pray to God and spill my guts about everything. I tell him how I screwed up and became rude towards a higher authority in my life and how wonderful talking to my parents was. I talk to Him about how I am tempted and how it effects me. I pray for help and a guide to get me through it. I talk to Him like He is my best friend and this not only helps me through tough times, but it also makes me close with the Creator of all things. He is my best friend. I know He will listen to all my problems and always give me the best advice. He is awesome.
One last thing that helps me through my temptations, is reading through my favorite book, the Bible. You'd be surprised at how much it actually affects your life. I find I can relate to it quite a bit. Its nice to read a book that actually gives me sound advice. I read the Bible everyday and it never fails to surprise me at how much that portion of scripture relates and helps me through my day.
