I’m not quite sure how to start this off so I guess I’ll just jump right on in. I am addicted to pornography. I have been addicted for about 3 years. It has recently gotten so much worse than I wanted it to. It’s beginning to make me feel isolated and my attitude has changed tremendously. I’m not as happy as I used to be, I’m constantly weighed down by this sin and I don’t know what to do. I’ve prayed and asked God to forgive me but this is interfering with my relationship with God and I hate it!
One of the worst parts about it is that it has progressed farther than it needs to. My boyfriend was addicted at one time as well, so we both tried to help each other stop. He finally overcame it and has not looked at it nor acted upon it in about 3 months. I stopped for a while which lead to built up sexual tension (I guess) and we began having sex. We’ve been sexually active for about a year and it’s getting out of hand. I know it’s not what God has planned for us. We both hope to get married someday to each other and we know that if we keep this up we won’t last much longer. I’m so scared to tell someone because I don’t want to get in trouble or make someone look at me differently. I hate this sin and all that comes with it. The feelings, emotions, unhappiness, everything. I’m ready for a change.

You should see the movie war room in theaters now. It will tell you how to pray and I believe you will quit. But everything takes time. redirect yourself into something else. whenever you get the urge to watch these things say little prayer and try to do something else.

My dear sister, I had the same addiction several years ago. It had a hold on me, and no matter what I tried to do, I couldn’t shake it off. I was hopeless. I was ashamed. My shame and guilt almost completely overwhelmed me. I told myself that I couldn’t tell anyone, especially my parents. I believed that lie for three years. Satan tried to destroy me, but God had another plan for me. When I was in my darkest moment in life, God redeemed my life. Two years ago, I finally told my parents about my addiction. I finally got help. Since that day and only because of the grace of God, I have not returned to that addiction.

I strongly urge you to get help. Tell a godly person who you trust, whether that person is your parent or someone from church. Do NOT believe Satan’s lies. He wants you to think that you are alone, that what you’ve done is too big for God to handle, that nothing can change you. Those are lies; lies that are meant to destroy. (1 Peter 5:8)

Surrender your life to the One who died for you and for your sins. God promises that “If [you] confess [your] sins, He [will be] faithful and just to forgive [your] sins and [will] cleanse [you] from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) His promises are true. and “He who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23)

Precious girl, please, I beg of you to get help, tell someone, trust God’s promises, and believe that He will rescue you. There is no sin that is too great for God to forgive. I am (and will be) praying for you!
