I really need help!!! I struggle with an addiction with pornography and masterbation. I try to really on God’s strength to help me but I really don’t know if I’m doing it “right”. This struggle is killing my faith and I have been struggling with it on and off for about 2 years. I don’t know what else I can do. Please help! I’m desperate and I don’t know what to do.

Sharing it on here is such a good start. I admire you for realizing the problem and wanting to give it up. But also share it with someone you really trust. A leader from church, a family member, or a good friend. That way you’ll have someone who can help you and keep you accountable. I’ll be praying for you .

Are you close with your parents? If so, it may be to soon to talk to them now… I would go to a trusted aunt, youth worker, teacher (christian) and talk it over with them.

Where are you watching it from? Is it possible for you to block the site? Or destroy the dics? Idk, I am just trying to give some options…

Pray to God and ask Him for help, but remember you have to put forth the effort. God WILL help you if you call upon His Name. I will be praying for you and that God will guide you and put someone in your life to help you, or if there is that someone that they will help you!

Feel free to PM me anytime to talk, pray or chat. 😉 I’ll be praying!

Wow girl, thats some serious stuff. At one point I almost got sucked in as well and it is a dangerous path to take. I will for sure be praying. As someone who has been there, it is important to confide in someone, not another teen/youth unless they are an old soul because otherwise they could point you farther from God.
If Pm is possible then talk to me anytime, otherwise, feel free to talk to me in the chatroom

I am right there with you, I have had this problem for years, I to am struggling to fight this. Keep praying, delve into God’s word and listen to the Holy Spirit inside you. If your like me I would turn to this when I was bored, try to find something else to fill your time with, I am sorry I don’t have more to offer you during this time. But God is strong enough to carry you through, ask Him to give you strength. I will be praying for you.

I was and still am scared to tell my mom i had a porn addiction. But I got over it with alot of prayer and a few other things. Use your computer in a place where anyone can walk in. Having an older and younger brother, I decided to use the guest bedroom because my family can come in there, but my brothers will not consistently bother me. Then I charched my ipad and laptop (i dont have a phone) in the hallway or computer room, so i’m not tempted to use them. I dont know what device you use to watch porn, but for my devices, I changed my passwords to binle verses, or sayings like “do not lie”. But most importantly, I prayed Go would make me feel guilty as I even considered going on those websites. But even though I’m not addicted any more, I am still tempted, and I still remember those images. Its a consent battle. I will be praying for you.

Hey girlie,
I’ve been where you are and it stinks. I am still tempted so much to do things. One thing that has helped me so much, is that before you masturbate or look up porn, you think bad thoughts. It’s a lead up thing. If you can stop thinking about sex, or whatever you’re thinking that makes you want it, a lot of times you can have the victory there. It’s easier to resist temptation at the beginning when it’s weaker.
I made a youtube video about sexual temptation, maybe it will help. I’ll post the link if you want to watch it.

Keep praying and trusting God. I know you can make it through this!

I’ve had this same struggle for four years…I know, FOUR YEARS. I got to the point where I couldn’t even go for a week without relapsing. I think stress is the main factor fueling my addiction. Anyhow, I try focusing on one week at a time. So first my goal is to make it one week, then two more, then three… Each time I lapse I have to start over. It’s more manageable than simply saying “never again”, but it ultimately achieves the same goal. (To clear up confusion–I don’t allow myself to do it between goals, it’s just a mental thing, to make the goal more tangible, if that makes sense? :P)

And like some other people have said here, it won’t hurt to talk to someone (someone you TRUST) about it. Most people have been through this to some degree and can give you some advice.

One nice lady once told me “sin satisfies us for a short time, but will only leave us wanting more. God will fill every desire of our hearts”

Luck to you, my sister:)

I know this was asked a year ago, but being a female who’s testimony is all about being delivered from a Pornography Addiction that lasted about 8 years, I’ll answer for anybody who comes across this who may be struggling with this addiction now.
The 1st step of being set free is to acknowledge to yourself that fact that you have an addiction. Understanding that you have a problem is BIG.

2. Realize that this isn’t just an addiction, but specifically an OPPRESSION. This isn’t just anything you can get rid of. This is something you need deliverance for.

3. God Almighty is your deliverer!!! Stop trying to stop an addiction that can’t be stopped from you! This is LITERALLY one of the biggest problems that stopped me for so long. I tried to deliver myself from something I didn’t have the power to. When I realized that, I prayed to God telling him that I had no idea what to do to be free, and that I need him to step in.

4. (MOST IMPORTANT!!!) Matthew 18:19-20 is the answer I received. “…I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning ANYTHING that they ask, it will be done for them by My father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there in the midst of them.” If you have a close Christian person around (Parents, Grandparents, friends, teachers, etc.) who you know for SURE is close with the Lord, tell them that you’ve been battling, and ask them to agree in prayer for your deliverance according to the verses above in Jesus name. I know it sounds horrible. TRUST me, I’ve been there. But if it weren’t for telling my Grandmother & praying with her, I wouldn’t be free today! And I thought she was going to be judgemental and that my family was going to be extremely shocked & disappointed. But guess what? They were so CHILL about the whole thing!!! My mother (who I eventually had the guts to tell afterwards) told me that falling into that kind of thing is so easy to do, and that it would be wrong of her to judge me for something that wasn’t my fault.
It may take you some time to do the last part, so I suggest you pray to God (who, by the way, does NOT hate you, is NOT angry with you NOR is he disappointed with you. You are NOT disgusting, and this horrible oppression you’re facing is NOT your fault regardless of how it came into your life.) If the thought of telling anybody is scary, make an account of fortifyprogram.org – It’s a program that gives you strategies to help you fight against your urges and informs you of things about the Porn industry that’ll make you have a personal disgust with it. I used it for awhile & it’s pretty helpful! 🙂 It may not make things easier considering God probably wants your battle with porn to be a testimony of how he saved you from it. Hope this helps! Fight the good fight!!! 😀
