Spiritual Suicide

With references from the Holy Bible NIV

Obsession - Anything that clouds your mind or spirit.
Exodus 20:2  
You shall have no other Gods before me.

Complaining - negative conversation 
Ephesians 4:21  
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths. Only what helps build others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Bitterness and Jealousy - lack of love& compassion
Hebrews 12:14-15 
Make every effort to live in peace with all men and be holy. Without holiness, no one will see the lord. See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.

Immorality - loose and careless
1 Corinthians 6: 18-20
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins man commits are outside his body. He who sins sexually, sins against his own body.   Do you not know that your body is a temple of the holy spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. 

What we see and hear - television, books, the internet, etc
Psalms 101:3
I will set before my eyes no vile thing. The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.

Negative Thinking - depression
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart, Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed daily. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Conclusion:
Psalms 1:1-3
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of mockers.
But His delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law, He meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prosper.
