XXX Church explains how porn addicts can regain their integrity

When people consume pornography, they end up losing their integrity and the trust of those close to them. Spouses feel betrayed, and friends sometimes feel abandoned.

Lhe online ministry dedicated to supporting people addicted to porn and sex XXX Church, states that there is a way for them to reclaim their integrity. So how do you get there? The first thing to do, according to Carey Nieuwhof, is to be ruthlessly honest with yourself.

“Of all the lies we tell, the ones we convince ourselves of are the most deadly. Stop justifying yourself. Stop making excuses for yourself. "

Then you have to find a qualified and honest person to advise you. Relatives are not always in the best position because they are emotionally linked. It would help if a third party gave you objective feedback on your efforts, progress or mistakes, along the way out of this addiction.

According to Carey, people wishing to get out of pornography addiction must make the decision to honor God, not to satisfy themselves or those around them.

“Doing the right thing isn't always easy, and sometimes it's not the popular thing. Honoring God… just means that you are going to live with a long term vision, guided by Scripture. "

With God placed first, people cope better with the trials of withdrawal and manage to stabilize their behavior over the long term.

Forest Benedict also emphasizes that it is particularly difficult for a spouse to realize that he is after pornography. The key for them is to have a good support system. He advises finding a benevolent, discreet group that recognizes the traumatic aspect rather than activating the levers of guilt.

But at the same time, he advises spouses against degrading words.

“Since addiction is fueled by shame, negative talk only complicates the situation. "
