Any type of addiction is difficult to understand, especially if you have never had the problem. While it comes in many forms, an addiction to pornography is becoming a significant epidemic in this country. Easy to hide, "seemingly" few immediate side effects, no hangovers it has become the addiction of choice for many men and some women. Research tells us that more pornographic websites hit the Internet every day than any other type of sight. Sadly, access has become easier and easier.
If you are the one struggling with this addiction, the shame that you feel can be devastating. Always hiding your computers history, hidng the magazines or videos and desperately hoping that your mate won't find out or worse, your children. It can be managed in a victorious way, but it takes a lot of work and being willing to admit to yourself that you can't do it by yourself. You need help from God and from others. There is no other way. I have successfully worked with dozens of men in this area and they do see victory as they work the program.
If you are the wife of one of these strugglers, I am sure that you have been deeply hurt by finding your husband has been struggling with this for quite a while. You probably believe that this addiction is about his disatisfaction with you or the way you look. In reality, that is not usually the case. You are not responsible for him making the decision to use pornography, he is. But, you can be an integral part of his healing process.
