How I Finally Quit Porn — And How You Can, Too



Instead of rehashing what's already been said a million times in the NoFap community and elsewhere, I thought I'd talk about the root cause of your addiction to pornography, explain how it works, as well as what tools I personally used to overcome it. Like any other addiction there are always pitfalls along the way, but as you make your way through these three stages, you'll increase your ability to quit porn. It feels good, and it's a part of your whole self, which includes your sexuality. Once I decided that I really did want to quit drugs and alcohol for good this time, my first step was to get motivated.

At any rate, if you're reading this post, you or someone you know is trying to quit porn and are looking for some help in doing so. Here's the good news: in the vast majority of cases, you don't need expensive rehabs or retreats to rid your life of porn.

The porn industry objectifies situations, people and sex. If I had nothing to do that day, I usually ended up watching porn. I thought I could quite porn whenever I felt like it. I even tried to quit a few times and then rationalized my eventual return to the addiction.

Researchers have repeatedly found that people who have seen a significant amount of porn are more likely to start having sex sooner and with more partners, and to engage in riskier kinds of sex, putting them at greater risk of getting sexually transmitted infections.

Ask God to protect you from further exposure to porn (1 Corinthians 10:13), and to fill your mind with things that are pleasing to Him (Philippians 4:8). Basically, you'll have this urge to view the material and there is nothing you can do to really keep yourself from watching it.

This only leads to watching more porn because it's the only escape that works. Depression is a very real and very large part of a porn addiction, perhaps a self-perpetuating cycle. I'm so glad you're able to know the truth that God's love never, ever gives up on us. I think that's the real key to any kind of change and growth: confidence in God's love, no matter what.

Studies have shown that pornography constitutes about 25 per cent of all search engine requests and affects the brain in much the same way as drugs. Unfortunately, this means that you get less of a high” from other things in your life that used to make you happy, such as friendship, sports, food, or love, resulting in many porn addicts suffering from anxiety and depression.

It's these reflections that motivated me to think of solutions that can help (anyone who is) my troubled Muslim brethren to quit watching what they'd agreed that it ruins their happiness and the nobility Allah has bestowed upon the children of Adam. For me, porn use was an attempt to meet my needs for sexual expression, connection & intimacy, and stress release.

Am 21 year and I have been struggling with porn and masturbation 5 yrs now.I have had this addiction before I accepted Jesus in my life but this thing keeps poping up ever time and it has really crippled my relationship with much shame and guilt…and the filthy sense that follows after masturbating makes me feel unworthy to pray or ask anything from God…i feel so unworthy even to be among my Christian brothers and sisters at church, I even isolate myself these days.

This is why you need to be honest when you decide to quit pornography, and have decided to tell Allah about it. Now, you need to embark on a new lifestyle that will secure you perseverance and steadfastness in abstaining from pornography (and other evil deeds).

Some young men don't know what it like to go through a break up( because they are so stuck on porn, that they can't get in a relationship), deal with real-life stress such impotent as paying mortgages, keeping employees on payroll, juggling work and kids, taking care of aging parents, paying taxes, deal with workplace politics- the list goes on.
