    Judging from the vast majority of Christians, once a Christian has their official membership card in their back pocket, they are free to be and do just like everybody else without any niggling worries about unfortunate eternal consequences.

    Work on the thought life, since this is where the battle is. It's important to identify Satan's lies playing as tapes in one's head, and stop the tape player! Then, deliberately replace the lies with the truth. Instead of "I'm never going to change," repeat the truthful promise that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Phil. 4:13). Instead of obsessing over the aching and longing for the unhealthy and sinful behavior, fill your mind with praise and worship and Scripture.

    these 2 teachings of Jesus helps--1) Man does not live by bread alone, but by every utterance of Gods( see how Jesus showed the importance of learning and applying every utterance of Gods,as important as eating)

    2) Keep on seeking first the kingdom and his( Jehovah) righteousness, and all things will be added.

    The strongest thing to do would be to face up to the fact that gods, Christ and the devil don't exist rather than hiding from the truth behind religiously inspired feelings of fear and guilt.

    Do your homework. Study well, read more, listen more and live according to all that you are learning. Follow after the example of Christ. Live as he lived. Not easy. But small steps will get you there.

    No shortcuts. But continuously strive.

    Now that you are starting to live your life in Christ, realize that Christ/God is the only Reality. There is no devil, nor evil. Keep your focus purely on Christ only.

    Peace and Namaste!

    Stay away from things that satan uses to get a foothold; certain movies, books, magazines, music, sinful people. Stay in the word. Pray a LOT.
