Pornography Addiction: What Can A Man Do?

1. Recognize The Cause of Your Addiction:

First of all the most important thing you can do is figure out why you are addicted to pornography by recognizing what the root of the problem is. Do whatever it takes to bring it out in the open with yourself and then take the necessary steps to eradicate the sexual cravings from your mind. Do you think you can stop at anytime on your own free will? Easier said than done, right?

Do you have negative feelings towards someone or about something bad that happened in your life? If negative issues don’t get resolved within your mind your sub-conscience will bring them back out in your actions. Only you can know for sure what it is that has caused pain and suffering within you. And only you can do something about it! Make it right for yourself in your mind, and do whatever you need to do to fix the problem.

2. Take the Blinders Off and Open Your Eyes:

I know this sounds harsh but look what closed mindedness towards God does to you! What you think and believe on a continual basis brings you into a life based upon those thoughts and beliefs. If our mind is not on God then what is it on?

Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? Luke 6:39

Have you ever stopped to think that you’re addicted to pornography because of your unwillingness to base your life upon a spiritual and moral foundation? Simply put, your philosophy is with the world and not God. Some of you have even been conditioned into believing that viewing pornography is acceptable for you life. But I encourage you to break free from this kind of thinking, which leads to sin, and seek out the true source and foundation for your life.

Believe that you are a child of God! It is not too late to accept God’s light into your world and come out of the darkness. Stop feasting from Satan’s dinner table and feed on God’s truth for your life.

I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. John 12:46

Grab onto that light and do not give up on yourself. Stay true to God and your faith will lead you to do what is right. Don’t let pride stand in the way of earnestly seeking God. Pray that God deliver you from temptation and know that He hears your appeals and feels your suffering because He loves you. Study and read the bible daily. Find out what it is that God wants you to do with your life and work on doing His will in your life. You are a child of God and He is your true source for comfort and peace!

3. Have Faith in God Instead of in The Addiction

Have faith to know that God will keep you from being tempted. If you believe in God, then start doing something with your beliefs! This is where the application of faith comes in. God has given us His great and marvelous gift of faith. The question to ask then is, are you applying faith from God into your life or are you living under the deception of human faith to live your life under?

Because He himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.Hebrews 2:18

We have choices in life, and sometimes we have to choose what’s right rather than what feels good. But know this, God’s ways always feel good, after a time, because we have chosen to take care of ourselves by doing what is right in our heart rather than what gives us worldly pleasure.

In other words, when we start feeling good about who we are, and the choices we make in life, is when we begin acting on our faith and living the truth. This is what makes us feel good inside all the time!

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Galatians 6:7-8

Real faith takes action to complete its purpose. Erroneous faith is only a feeling. Make your faith be something by putting it into an action!

As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds it dead. James 2:26
