I’ve struggled with addiction to porn

For years I struggled with addiction. I didn’t drink, do drugs or have some kind of chemical dependency. No, I’m talking about a different kind of addiction that we rarely talk about: sex addiction. Or may I say a “porn” addiction, whichever you prefer.

For years I struggled with addiction.

I didn’t drink, do drugs or have some kind of chemical dependency. No, I’m talking about a different kind of addiction that we rarely talk about: sex addiction. Or may I say a “porn” addiction, whichever you prefer.

In any case, these sexual images gripped me and made me feel like a slave to their bidding. I would venture to say that almost all men have at one point struggled with pornography or masturbation. It’s very rare to find someone who hasn’t had this battle.

Some don’t see any moral wrong doing in this category.

I myself am a Christian and am striving for purity in every aspect of life. I don’t write this article to condemn anyone’s choice of sexual needs or wants, I just see how awful this addiction is becoming.

Just before serial killer Ted Bundy was executed, he was interviewed by Pastor James Dobson. One thing that Bundy said stuck with me. He mentioned that his struggle with pornography was key in developing his twisted desire for murder and rape.

According to Internet Filter Review, the total worldwide pornography revenue in 2006 was $97 billion! That is more than what professional sports, McDonald’s and Starbucks all do in revenue together in one year! Isn’t that sad?

In the last year, I created a website called JTALK. This website is a men’s Christian website dedicated to helping men overcome addiction or any sin in their life.

I also interview popular Christian personalities to gain their knowledge of some of the most important issues men face.

Recently I interviewed NFL star running back Shaun Alexander, former Colorado Springs Pastor Ted Haggard (who was made famous by his admitted sexual encounter with a gay prostitute) and many others.

The website also contains teachings, links and my own personal testimony.

I hope that you may visit my non-profit website and see for yourself how you might be helped through this very concerning addiction.
