Breaking Porn Addiction: Support Group

Recommended Posts

Hello friends!

I'm new to this site and this is my first post. The reason i found this site is because my addiction to masturbation and pornography.

Here's a brief version of my story:

I started masturbating when i was 12, my initial reaction was the most telling - disgust. I was horrified, i didnt know why or what it was that i had just done. I had never heard about masturbation, it was just instinct that made me do it. Sadly, i grew to enjoy it very fast and within a month i was hooked. And so it was for the next 4 years. I always felt something was wrong with it but at 16 as my faith matured so did my disdain for masturbation. Now at 20, i absolute loathe it and what my urges drive me to do. I feel so bad and horrible for disobeying God so much. For the last 4 years, from age 16 to now, i have tried every trick and technique i can imagine, weening off it, "overdosing" on it, pretending its nothing, making deals with God etc etc. Nothing works, i cant get free!

So here's my idea and my reason for being here:

I want to start a support group of anywhere from 1-10 men who feel the same way about masturbation and porn as i do. Together we will support each other and together we will overcome this evil!

I'm not familiar with this site, so maybe we could set up a private forum for our group or (depending on numbers) use PM, it would probably be best not to have this being a public thing.

So that's my invitation!

Post below if you're in!

We shall overcome!

I like the idea and, I like your username! Stay determined. I've fallen in and out and I would be a part of the group but I'm going to be leaving next week for a summer long job (super blessing for purity, wish me luck). I hope you find a group you can confide in and fight it together!

Sounds great. I am already free almost 3 years from masturbation and porn, I can join your group if you think it's appropriate.

Hey guys!

Thanks for the great response!

But unfortunately I got no response to this thread for about a week after posting so I moved on with my quest for freedom.

By the grace of God I have found a great accountability partner and a fantastic online course to help free us!

The course is called the Way of Purity and you can do it for free on Setting Captives Free, google it. It's a great course that uses interactive daily readings and you get paired up with a mentor who will guide you through this.

So guys if you're still interested in this idea of a support group, then I'm in! Let's do it, I wont close my door to anyone!

But I do highly recommend that anyone who is serious about getting free, do the SCF course!

And also you should try find an individual 1-on-1 accountability parter, it allows the relationship to become more personal and stronger!

So get back to me if you're still interested!

May God be with you in all your travels!

Sorry guys, my post count is apparently too low to create the group. If someone responsible wants to create it and then invite all the interested guys that'd be great!

Remember, the Holy Spirit was sent to us in order to help us live a life full of Gods will. Let Him be the one who helps you when temptations are rising against you. It is with the help of God, that our battle with sin would be overcomed. Perseverance and Faith in Him are strong and useful weaponry any christian must carry in order to prevail. And by knowing this we should also need to understand that communication with the God is a must. So Brothers and Sisters in God, we should be happy because we are awake and know that it is time to live life in Christ. To live the Truth for which we are saved by Jesus Holy sacrifice at the cross.
