'↓'Introduction'↓'

You have an addiction. It isn't a
public addiction, like alcoholism.
With alcoholism, the last person
to know he is an alcoholic is the
alcoholic. Support groups exist
for alcoholics. If you go to
Alcoholics Anonymous, people
support you because they know
you are seeking help.
But you are addicted to
pornography, and pornography
addiction is a secret thing. You
may be the only one who knows
you are addicted. If you went to
a support group for
pornography addicts, and your
friends found out, or if your
spouse found out, they might be
very disappointed in you. You
might hurt feelings, break hearts.
Friends and family probably don't
know you're addicted to
pornography. They probably
think you're a fine, upstanding,
loving man. You know what?
They're probably right.
You see, pornography addicts
come from all walks of life.
They're blue collar laborers and
white collar executives; they're
handsome and they're homely;
they're Christian, Jewish, and
atheist; they're all races and
creeds. They're single, they're
married and they're fathers. They
can be lazy couch potatoes, and
they can be diligent community
volunteers.
Some want to control their
addiction and some do not.
You want to control your
addiction.
I say "control" your addiction,
because you need to realize you
will never "eliminate" your
addiction -- you will always be
addicted. When I refer to
breaking your addiction, I mean
it in the same sense you might
break a horse. Breaking a horse
means you gain control over it --
it submits to your will. You don't
take it out and shoot it.
You're like a diabetic. Diabetes
won't go away (at least no one
has found a cure yet), but it can
be controlled.
"But that's not fair," you say.
"Why do I have this addiction?" It
isn't fair. Diabetes isn't fair either.
It's just one of the
inconveniences of being human.
Some people get it, some people
don't. But just because you get it,
doesn't mean you should give in
to it. And you've got
pornography addiction. You
always will -- it won't go away.
But you can control it. And by
control, I don't mean you can
reduce the amount of
pornography you look at. I mean
you can stop looking at, listening
to, or seeking out pornography
all together. But it is going to
take effort. It is going to take
commitment. It is going to take
resolution that you won't give
up, no matter how discouraging
it gets. It is going to take prayer.
It is going to take time.
Most addicts have been
controlled by pornography most
of their lives. That's a lot of
programming to overcome. In
fact, you may want to seek
professional counseling for your
addiction. The only challenge
with counseling is that some
therapists don't have the
experience to help you, and
many do not even think you need
help. Many professionals don't
consider pornography addiction
a problem. Certainly not to the
degree that you understand it to
be. Oh, and one more thing:
professionals can cost $125 an
hour.
So I'm writing this little brochure
because I think it can help you.
It's short. It's to the point. It
contains what has worked for
me, and I hope and pray it works
for you. You see, I'm addicted to
pornography too. But I was
lucky; after years of praying and
searching, I found a counselor
who understood my desire to
control my addiction. Like me, he
believed that at the very least,
pornography made it difficult to
get close to God and to live the
type of happy life I was seeking.
It's taken several years, hundreds
of dollars in therapy fees and lots
of prayer, but today I am in more
control than I have ever been.
Using what I have learned from
my therapist and incorporating
my own experience, I have
developed a very simple plan that
helps me get through each day,
one day at a time. I hope it can
help you.
