    I have read over 15 books on Pornography and Sexual addiction and this truly is one of the best books on the subject.

    Thanks for sharing your quest Alex. Together we reinforce psychoyogical health. I’m a porn addict from when I was … 11 or 12, and male, and only given it up at 30. Multiple times I eroded the confidence in my darling lover, in this relationship of 3+ years, and she has already left me so many times apparently just over the dishonesty I have shown. Something brings her back, she wants to share these things with me, challenge this thinking and give me a chance. Maybe she can actually hear me that I want the same as she. But it’s continually tearing her up. My renewing confidence about the beauty and higher ways of life, the health in abstinence, the love and humour, that I am showing myself replace that addiction with, is not heard by her. I stopped watching sex media but it transferred into perving over normal pictures of women online. That was even worse for her as you can imagine. That was the real spark for her breaking up. So I remember what a wise man said to me once, that addictions need to be replaced by something more healthy, rewarding, worth doing. For me it’s a social aspect that is important, using ourselves and imagery infringes on our image of one another. We become objects of the voyeurist narratives written about us by media. We give in to imagining sex with people we meet, among varying degrees of imagery, imagination. Compassion, appreciation of their showing themselves at all, is among my solutions. People are giving ourselves to each other, and it feels so good when there is vigilance and/or trust where coveted sexual fantasies are assumed. The focus is always on something; I find myself inquisitive and still, in a state of equalising. Yes this is all connected with breathing and feeling energy going through, coming in, going out. It’s a bit like equalising sound frequencies so everything is relaxed, optimal, enduring. There is so much humour in whats going on inside and outside us, and that should be enjoyed too. Thanks for bringing it up. And for sticking to it.

    This article is very helpful to my situation. I have been in addiction to porn for 8years. Always feeling guilt and self hatred for my inability to control my sexual drives. For all the while i was trapped-in, my efforts to stop watching porn were a waste of time and energy, because unfortunately whenever i tried resisting for sometime i end up giving in again and again. But with this i developed a sort of mind set to start my process to stopping porn and masturbation. Thank you Alex.

  3. Tay says

    Thank you for this wonderful website and information. I have been trying to get rid of my addiction for a year now, and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope that this will help me. Thank you for the help!

    Not religious myself, but pornography is just bad for my life… Hidding an addiction, trying to spend all my time watching it, dissatisfied girlfriend…

    =) Can’t wait to say “It’s all better now”

  5. Kyle says

    Hi, I really appreciate your article and your website. My girlfriend and I are active Christians and for too long has porn been a detriment to my life. Thank you for your wisdom and I am confident that I will be more outfitted to take care of my addiction.

    HI Alex

    I have been looking for ways to abate this addiction for long time. I was patient for a month, when I decide to quit and again revisit; I mostly do it, when I am alone. Now I am married, I have a baby girl and really want to get rid of this addiction. I will definitely stop watching this and became more confident after going through your article. I have been looking for this sort of website for long and haven’t found even one that really made me this happy as I am today after reading your article.

    A great article and excerpts; this is going to be my tourney against porn addiction and I will definitely win.

    This addiction made me to see even normal girls in a perverse way that I loathe and now this addiction has reached to the acme.

    God will always show door, and today I have seen the door. I will close my addiction door forever– very soon!

    I have my problem since I was young. I have been caught by my wife. I didnt know how to explain my addiction. Now she is hurt because I turned to porn except making Love to her. Everytime I feel insacure, I go to porn. I am having cravings since we are fighting…..any suggestions?

    • Lula says

      Dearest Lost Husband,
      This just happened to me, except I am the wife. I cannot express how sad and self-detached I have become with the thoughts of not being the woman to my husband that I thought I was. It really has made me feel as though my value has gone from a million bucks, to a swept up penny from the kitchen floor. I know I should not feel so terrible, because we have had a great intimate relationship, we are together at all opportunities, and I am confident that I am a lovely, desirable and intelligent female. (I thought I was certain..?) However, I now feel like I have lost my lover and best friend to a dozen-a-dime porn star, who does not really care about him at all, his pride, his happiness, his needs, his desires, his goals, all of his hard work, his pain and comfort, his safety, achievements, goals, his health, his beautiful eyes and smile, his touch, his kiss… all of the things that I am blessed to have and I cherish..! To put it to you simple (respectively), it feels like my life savings and the man that I have worked so hard for have just both been stolen from me by a five minute scam, and the authorities are telling me it’s legal, and I just need to relax. !???! I cannot! If you were my husband came to me and told me that porn was breaking your heart, I would break my computer in half right there, wrap my arms around you (I mean him ;) and spend all my energy making LOVE and proving that HE IS THE ONLY MAN I WANT IN MY HEART AND IN MY EYES. I know that was a lot, but I hope it helps, because I have a strong feeling this is how your wife may be feeling right now, and to me it looks like you have already made the right choice starting 1 at a time.

    • FTRW Coach Craig says

      Lost Husband, I’m glad you reached out – this is a great start. It takes courage to look in the mirror.

      My wife and I run a podcast about this exact subject – we started it because there wasn’t any resources for couples that we really connected with. It about our journey through my betrayals and lies to surviving and thriving. Here is a link. Enjoy – http://www.spreaker.com/user/sexaddiction

    Thank you so much for this information, I am 15 and accidentally discovered the sexual impurity I face today. I’ve been trying and trying to stop but to no avail. As an LDS member I really want to go on a mission, because I’ve already felt the satisfaction of bringing a soul to Christ. Missing out in this opportunity would be a spiritual suicide in my eyes. Over the space of 5 years I’ve given up multiple times and hit 4 times a day. After I felt horrible and went to maybe once a week. I feel your site will finally help me find peace.

    • Anonymous says

      Bronson, I have the exact same circumstances as you. I am also a LDS member, and am 15. I have been trying to stop this addiction so that I can be the person u want to be. I hope that you will be able to stop this addiction, just like I am trying to do. Thank you for showing me I’m not the only one. Let’s stop this together!

    Hi,

    I have been an active member in church and i have been secretely living in Pornography.. I feel ashamed that once i was a sevier addict and got free for couple of months and most people still think that i am free, including my wife. I feel i am cheating her, God and my fellow church goers. But after reading your article, i have decided to seriously follow all that you have said.. Real advise from a person who was a poron addict will surely help me. Thank you so much brother for sharing this. I hope i win over Porn addiction. And i know i will kick out this habit with the help of God and some real advise from a person like u.
