My solution for you is that mentioned in principle by some here, which is, get rid of what is stimulating you. Girls are obviously stimulating you. Tough thing is you are in college and the way women dress today they should be handcuffed and put in jail for lewdness. Something I noticed about myself is this, when I look at a woman, especially one I would like to be with, it evokes pleasure in me but when I look away, it goes away. It is kind of like the Medusa effect (Greek mythology allusion here). The simple act of looking triggers excitement, and the more you look the more excited you will become and this often leads to enticement and allurement. You have to conscientiously refocus, turn away, stop looking and the excitement will cease. This can be extremely hard to do and feel awkward in college, which I will also be attending soon for nursing school, and this will be my strategy, which I know works but will obviously be extremely hard to implement seeing that all the students are going to be mostly female. Another thing is DO NOT MASTURBATE OR LOOK AT PORN. This is by far the worst thing you can do to yourself. I hope you realize that masturbation is like doing drugs and you can become highly addicted to it. If you are doing this chances are you are already an addict and it will be so extremely hard for you to stop. I appreciate you concern. It is a worthy concern, indeed. My policy is SCHOOL IS NOT FOR FLIRTING. You are there to learn and to drill yourself and others with the course material so that you can leave there and be useful etc. Now I would simply suggest that you practice conscientiousness in the following ways. Have a time for waking up and going to sleep and develop integrity to do it consistently. Have a time for eating at a regular time and have integrity to do it. Have a time for physical activity of your choice at a certain time and also a time for study. Developing integrity in these things will give you integrity to resist these urges. When you socialize, particularly during the weekends, this could be a source for deviation, temptation, but you should socialize of course. I think you just have to be careful. If you have integrity during the week you should be able to do fine in the weekends.

"The CAMPHOR TREE is a thousand year old tree which begins to produce camphor when it reaches 30 years of age. In China there are camphor trees which are up to two thousand years old. Camphor is a white crystalline substance obtained after condensation of the essential oil, distilled from the camphor wood. From a chemical standpoint, it is a ketone of the borneol, an aromatic hydrocarbon, with a strong aroma, and a cool, spiced flavor. It is a CARDIAC AND RESPIRATORY STIMULANT. It stimulates the nervous centers of respiration and heart activity, increasing the frequency and deepness of breath, and strengthens the heart (analeptic action). It is used for lung congestion (bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma), fainting, hypotension, arrhythmia, and blackouts. Antiseptic and febrifuge very useful for influenza and colds. Anaphrodisiac decreases sexual exitement. Antirheumatic and analgesic camphor oil or alcohol is used in external applications in lotions in order to alleviate rheumatic aches and neuralgia."
