This is pretty sad. One of the reasons for our meddling with such dangerous things as pornography is because we haven't understood that it's a tool the devil is using to destroy us. In "All About Fornication" Dag Heward-Mills expounds on the tragic effects of fornication- a direct result of pornography. If you want to be delivered from this dangerous habit, read this book! :)

Thanx John for your recommendation!

Bill,

Two resources you might find worthwhile. My son has been telling me about his struggle with a porn addiction since age 10. He is now in his 20's and is free. This is what he recommended:

1. Watch the You Tube video entitled: The Great Porn Experiment: Gary Wilson at TEDxGlasgow

2. For the 97% of guys who are gamers and big on Reddit, there's an online recovery group for porn addicts: http://www.reddit.com/r/NoFap

3. As a parent, I found it was totally useless to berate my son or install an Internet blocker. These are outside pressures and they just drove the addition underground.

4. Instead I talked to my son about the connection between porn and loneliness, and porn and aimlessness. When you have no friends to lean on and no vision to reach for, porn is a real temptation. I encouraged him to make positive steps rather than focus on the negative.

5. I made porn the enemy, not my son. I made it clear that my son wasn't evil or dirty -- that porn was stalking him, and that it was trying to hurt him.

6. I shut up and simply prayed for him. All by himself, he found these 2 resources (#1 and #2 above) and got free. The key was a supportive and loving online community, plus his own motivation (and of course the Holy Spirit).

Good feedback and suggestions...

Thank you for bringing more information to this topic for me. Im truly grateful and really impressed.
