    Background
    I have hit rock bottom.

    I am 21 years old and I have been addicted for as long as I can remember. I have tried numerous times in the past to quit, but I always fall back into old habits. The longest I have been able to go is about a month, and then back into it again. I have tried everything to help, tracking apps, blocking apps, deleting apps that trigger it but I always find a way around them and back to porn. I seriously need to stop, I know it is ruining my life. How can I expect to be a man of God when I am addicted to porn? How can I expect to be a husband and a father when I want to go and watch porn? How can I expect to even find someone to get to that point when all I can think about is porn? This time, this time is for good, this time is going to be permanent, this time is going to be where I win.


    Today
    Today, August 28, today is the day that I decided for myself that I am finished with porn and masturbation. I cannot keep doing this for the rest of my life, I just can't. They say nothing changes if you change nothing, so this is my change, I am here and I am putting it all out on the internet for the world to see. Porn has truly screwed up my life, my "desires" have been warped to really bad stuff and I am done with it all. God made sexual desire, He made it holy, porn perverts that, porn kills love. If anyone that happens to read this has advice, send it. If anyone that happens to read this would like to help hold me accountable, I would gladly accept the help and support. Without people holding us accountable we fail. God made humans to be social, and without our tribes, we fail.

    Today
    Almost on to day 3 of forever, this is usually about the time that the urges come back, so now is when the real fight starts. The last two days have been fine, work has kept me plenty active and plenty busy. However, this upcoming week does not have a lot of days where I am scheduled, so that means a lot of alone time, which is not a good thing. These years are supposed to be the best of my life, so why continue to waste it with this filth? I wish that I had the answers, but I do not. All we have to do is keep our eyes on the prize and never let them stray, as it says in Matthew 5:28-30,

    "But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than your whole body to be cast into hell. And if your right-hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body be cast into hell." [NKJV]
    And those words are in red, and they are just as relevant today (if not more mind you) as they were 2000 years ago when Jesus spoke them in the sermon on the mount.
