“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8 

Welcome to Heart2Heart devotional. Many people view sex and porn addictions as less serious than ‘real’ addictions (i.e., substance addictions). In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

Sex and porn addiction bring the same types and levels of misery as alcoholism and drug addiction—relationship trouble, issues at work or school, declining physical or emotional health, emotional and physical isolation, financial woes, loss of interest in previously enjoyable activities, legal trouble, and more.

If you’re a porn addict, you’re struggling with an ongoing, escalating pattern of porn use that’s causing problems in your life. Your addiction is best identified based on the following criteria:

  1. You are obsessively preoccupied with pornography.

  2. Your use of porn has become a central life activity. When you’re with family and friends, even at fun events, you may want to leave so you can look at porn. The same is true with work and school.

  3. You have lost control over your use of pornography. You say you’ll only go online for a few minutes, but then you’re on for hours.

  4. It’s likely that you have tried to quit porn altogether, probably multiple times, only to find yourself back at it a few days later.

  5. You have experienced negative consequences related to porn use – an inability to form or maintain healthy romantic relationships, problems at work or in school, loss of self-esteem, loss of interest in real-world sexual activity, social isolation, depression, anxiety, loss of interest in hobbies and other previously enjoyable activities, financial woes, legal problems, etc.

If you think you or a loved one may be struggling with porn addiction, I suggest you take a 25 question test I will share with you tomorrow. This test is very important. It’s time to quit porn and be free.

 If you’re a porn addict, it is likely that, feeling shameful and remorseful, you have told yourself, “This is the last time I am going to use porn”.

Then you probably deleted your stash of porn, deleted your memberships to porn sites, and canceled the credit cards you used to cover porn-related expenses.

But then, a few days later, you were back at it, scrambling to reassemble your collection. It’s possible you’ve been spinning in this ‘delete and reassemble’ cycle for months or even years.

Here is good news: Porn addiction is a compulsive sexual behavior disorder according to world health organization and is diagnosable and treatable. You don’t have to live in bondage to these ferocious forces of porn and sex
