[1.12.2] Looping a method while a key is held down

Hey, I'm trying to loop a method that damages an entity 3 blocks in front of the player (which works) as long as the left mouse button is held down, but the game just runs the method way too quickly to the point that the game freezes, I tried to slow this down with a modulo operator as seen below, but it doesn't work. Thanks in advance!

public static void onClick(MouseInputEvent e) {
		GameSettings gs = Minecraft.getMinecraft().gameSettings;
		EntityPlayer p = Util.getPlayerbyUUID(Minecraft.getMinecraft().player.getPersistentID());
		if(p.getCapability(PMDataProvider.PDAT, null).getMMode()) {
			p.getCapability(PMDataProvider.PDAT, null).setLSpell(new SpellBase("test", MagickaType.ARCANE, SpellComponents.Telekinetic, 1));
			while(gs.keyBindAttack.isKeyDown()) {
				if(Minecraft.getMinecraft().world.getWorldTime()%10==0) {
					p.getCapability(PMDataProvider.PDAT, null).getLSpell().activateSpell(p);
					Util.logger.info("Left Spell: "+p.getCapability(PMDataProvider.PDAT, null).getLSpell().getRegistryName());
				}
			}
			if(gs.keyBindAttack.isPressed()) {
				KeyBinding.setKeyBindState(gs.keyBindAttack.getKeyCode(), false);
			}
			
			if(gs.keyBindUseItem.isPressed()) {
				KeyBinding.setKeyBindState(gs.keyBindUseItem.getKeyCode(), false);
			}	
		}
	}

Congrats, the game is now frozen until you let go.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

You need to think about this in a single-threaded fashion. You want the game to do other stuff while you keep the mouse button held down which means you need to not use an infinite loop.
