How do I get out?

I'm a teenage girl. And a Christian. I've been looking at porn since 4th grade ( I think that's when it was). I don't even remember how I got into it. I just know that I've fallen into this pit and I don't know how to get out. Every time I succumb to my sexual desires I feel like....well, like the worst thing I can think of. I've always heard that it's the guys who are wired to think visually or sexually...somehow I'm that way too. In the last several years, it's been going on off and on. Sometimes I can resist, but it's been so long since I've been able to. I found a friend who struggles with this too. We've been trying to encourage each other to keep fighting. I know I'm supposed to go to a trusted Christian adult to be accountable with, but I don't even know who to go to. Please, please pray for me. Any advice??

Porn is very addictive. Like a drug, literally. It is also a spiritual battle. With every temptation, God provides a way of escape. But sometimes it seems so hard to take the escape provided. I understand. But, there is hope!

You are doing the right thing by finding a friend to be accountable to. Excellent! As to a trusted Christian adult, how about your youth minister’s wife or your pastor’s wife? How about a mature Christian woman that you believe would not freak out? Someone in their late 20’s or early 30’s. I don’t know who might be available at your church, however? You may even want to go to another pastor’s wife or youth minister’s wife in town that is very well respected. That is up to you.

A good website to check out that is designed specifically for ladies struggling in this area is www.reachinghurtingwomen.com. I believe that they would be very helpful to you.

I hope this helps some and that others will comment, as well. I will also hold you up in prayer. I will pray that the Lord sends the right Christian ladies into your life to support you. Please do not give up. God will never give up on you. There is hope.

Thank you for yours prayers, they are greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, my family is in between churches right now. Quite frankly, church has never really been a safe place for me, even without someone knowing I was a porn addict. So I’m very hesitant.

Thanks for the link, I’ll definitely look into it.
