I know I need help. My sexual sin, and the resulting feelings of guilt, have distanced me from God. Being a woman, I have found no support from believers because "women don't look at porn". As if my sin takes away from my femininity and my worth as a follower of Christ! The two women from whom I had the courage to seek accountability rejected me at the point that I admitted to masturbation, not even pornography. I wish I could talk to my pastor or the elders in my church, but they are men and speaking about sexual issues to them would most likely be discouraged. As a woman addicted to porn, there is no support for me in my church. Where do I find help?

Well, after reading some of the stories here I feel free to share. I've been married for 9 years and feel that my husband and I have a really good sex life, but I feel that his porn addiction is eating away at our relationship. I have been praying for him and sometimes feel sorry for him because I know this is a demonic stronghold but at the same time I feel violated, or like he's cheating on me. I'm not going to give up on this marriage because I believe that what God has joined together let know man separate, I just need to know how to get through this challenge without acting out in anger, and disrespectful. I do know that this addiction started at a young age due to his father leaving tapes in the vcr. We have two boys and he has repeated this same thing in our house, so I prayed against generational curses over our sons. At first it seemed it was just magazines and videos now he's cross the line as to having sexual conversations in emails to actually exchanging numbers with one female long distance. How do I handle this the Christian practical way?

I feel so much shame in writing this now...because I am struggling now! I cant let anybody know, but I am addicted to porn! I remembered my first glance which turned into great ongoing lust as a child. It began with seeing the lingerie in the BIG Sears "Wishbook" When most kids were marking there toys, I was looking at women in this book! Age 8.....then when I was older I was at a friends house for a sleepover and my friends father turned on the playboy channel for all the little boys...I can remember all the filth it showed to this very day...my curiosity grew...by the age of 11, I found cinemax on thursday nights at 10pm and then HBO had there time on Saturday nights...at the age of 13 we first got the internet...it took me a little while to figure out how to cover my tracks...but that didnt take long...I started walking a road that has taken me to a lot of places I have never wanted to go...and im still on this path. But i am making progress...please pray for me! Thanks, Pastor Charles P.S. I have been led to preach against this to my congregation...but how can I.....? I would be a hypocritte!
