Pornography guy. More into context. It is online. Wanting to quit because of religious but will find reasons to want to do it by getting arroused by tv show (ie Victoria secret commercial, night club scene with strippers, etc)

It sounds like what you’re talking about is an addiction, so you need to treat it like one! It’s controlling you, and you need to get your control back! Take baby steps to get your control back, try to stay away from triggers, forgive yourself when you make mistakes, and remember we’re all here rooting for you!

You’re not alone in this. I am ashamed to admit, but I too struggle with this. Like @PaulTGG said, take baby steps and don’t beat yourself up. We all make mistakes, but God’s grace and forgiveness is there. We can make it through!

You are not alone in this friend. For us men, this is perhaps the toughest battle we have to fight with lust and pornography. I struggled with this heavily for years, thinking that I wasn’t addicted to it. But I was telling myself a big lie. Even after I was baptized, I still had a problem. I hated myself for it, and would constantly regret watching it and would bring myself down because of it. The thing is, as much as you want to beat yourself up for it, God’s grace is ultimately the way towards beating this addiction. Where we see shame, brokenness, and pity, God sees hope, redemption, and love. Concentrate on love and grace, and know that you are not alone in this!
