The only way to avoid such bad thoughts is to focus on some entertainment in your spare time, read a good book. Meditate on God and worship him. Gossip with a friend or talk to family members. Entertain your mind with children, because these children are the form of God. Those innocent children have no such thing as deceit. The real thing is that man should keep himself busy. That too, in his imagination towards good deeds, hope should not be despair.
