Porn support group new

Recommended Posts

So lately I've been falling back into my old ways of looking at pornography, I tell myself no don't do it but then I think oh one video won't hurt and then I will find a good video and watch it....and then feel guilty, I don't masterbate though I just watch.

Delete as many routes to porn that you can. Next time you have that inkling, go take a walk outside.

Realize that any dependence or addiction on anything that is unnatural is harmful to your character, and your character is the only lasting source of happiness.

yeah as above said, avoid as many connections to porn as possible, it may also be helpful to consider your underwear choice as well... too tight and they can cause undesirable boners, too lose and its for them to rub as you walk with same end result...

Another thought, try to talking to someone when horny it helps ALOT.

Install k9 web filter; free and easy to use. Have someone else register their email address and have them create a password that you won't know, that way you can't remove the program without the password or change settings. You can also download Covenant eyes, it's an accountability software (you have to pay though, but it's worth it!). It sends a list of URL's to a family member/accountability partner so they know exactly where you've been online and what the rating of the website is (M for mature, and so forth).

 

If you're serious about wanting to be free of pornography, feel free to PM me. I work with men (young and elderly) every day to help bring them out of pornography addictions as part of a ministry that I am involved with.

There's no answer to it. Unlike a disease, it can't be cured simply and everyone suffers differently from its affliction. The biggest and most important thing is just that you want to be free more than you want to enjoy the sinfulness. Nothing but forward motion can come from that point.

 

Some people say to install filters, others say to read the Bible more, others say it just goes away over time. Try what you will, but the most important thing is that you have the desire to fight and win. You become addicted because you obviously loved what you saw and thirst deeply for it. Make sure that you know why it is you're fighting the war, and that you even want to find freedom more than you want to stay in the precious chains. If you truly want to be righteous and despise the wickedness, you'll keep moving forward and out of the hole you've dug. But I can't stress enough that if it means nothing to you, no filter or habit will ever help you gain any ground.

 

As for myself, I feel like I'm on the tail end of my addiction. After years of giving in daily, I'm at the point where I tend to go: "A little over a month of being clean - Three or so days of messing up", with each relapse getting further from the last. If I could just hurry up and get my wedding over with already, I think I'd finally be done :,3

Why do you feel guilty? Are you harming anyone who does not deserve or wish to be affected? Is it illegal (not age but the practice itself?). If not, then I see you having no reason to be guilty. Honestly.

Because sin it itself is selfishness, and our lives are supposed to be others, not ourselves. Porn doesn't help anyone, and God calls to resist lust.

Hmm.... I won't call myself a saint seeing that just a few days ago I was in your shoes.... but how ever what I have done to help is get busy. Most will tell you 'avoid it at all cost' what they don't know is that it is easier said than done.

I would welcome any suggestions about stopping it also including points on masturbation.
