Pornography Addiction and How It's Damaging Catholic Society
The one and only way to kill the roots of pornography addiction!
Last month I made a decision: I would keep up with my flower garden this year. Generally, I just turn over the ground, plant a few things, and then forget about it. This year, I would commit myself to making our garden in the front of our house look nice.
Of course, I started with the weeds. Those little buggers are ‘oh, so pervasive.’ No matter how many times I go out and cut them away, they always come back. It was my neighbor who finally told me my problem.
“You have to get at the root,” he said. “The stem and leaves are just the part you can see, but the real life of the plant is in the roots. Those tiny little ones that are as big as hairs—they make it grow. Kill the roots, and you’ll kill the weed.”
Do You Have The Courage To Face Your Pornography Addiction?
You Do? Then I Can Show You Exactly How To Quit FOR GOOD!
I'm not going to tell you how prevalent pornography addiction is in our society. I'm not going to warn you that it's even a problem (a major one) for Christians... even pastors and ministers. I'm not going to remind you that we, as Catholics, are just as susceptible to this terrible addiction as everyone else.
Porn Addiction & Recovery Questions
Should I Have A Sober Counter?Most recovering addicts can tell you almost exactly how long they've been sober (call it sober, pure, chaste, whatever you want--what we're talking about is the number of days they've been clean from their addicted behavior). And yet, many recovering addicts practically discourage the use of a 'counter'.
The question comes up often-sadly, more often than the question, "How do I break my own porn addiction?" The simple fact is, it's a lot easier to help someone who wants to be helped. If your husband is addicted and unwilling to admit it, then your chances of helping him are pretty small. If he wants help, on the other hand, your chances (and the support you can give him) jump drastically. So let's go through a couple of different scenarios.
How Do You Find Support Groups For Pornography Addiction?
That's a tough one. It's not like alcoholism, which has been around for centuries and has many organizations dedicated to fighting it. You can literally find an AA group anywhere in the country. It's much harder to find a SA group.Most people can find a Celebrate Recovery group in their area. This doesn't focus on sexual addictions, but you'll find that many of the men attending CR groups happen to be there because of sexual and pornography addictions.
