If you're having mood swings due to racing thoughts pertaining to your carnal desires, you can always seek help.

I don't know how I could do that without embarassing myself or crossing the child-parent line. "Hey mom, dad, I kinda need some help and/or medical attention because I'm having severe mood swings due to giving up masturbation and carnal desires due to my new religion that you never really approved of." It just seems very odd to me.

Ask your guidance counselor at school for resources.  Once a resource has been identified, then let your parents know.

I'll give that some consideration, thanks. Dude, you probably didn't have to make a new thread though.

You're really on to something here. Tattoo to keep you from masturbating, chew to keep you from fornicating... it's a whole new world where you outsource your crosses. You're like a Christian entrepreneur or something.

He started a new thread because the other one was a prayer thread, and you aren't allowed to give advice in those ones, they're just for prayers/well wishes.
