Sex/Porn – How To Stop A Sex Addiction: day 21

Church is often an important factor in overcoming addiction. The right Pastor or Priest is even more important. We need to attend a Church that will consistently help us to fight addiction. A Church that will help us to never look back at the addiction that has caused us much pain and destruction. A Church that has a leader who will help us to increase our learning about how to conquer addiction until we are expert at it. A Church that has wise counsel so that we can learn rapidly. Many of you have attended Church for years but you will be shocked to hear me say that the Bible says over 100 times that we are to fear the Lord. A great Church teaches what the Bible teaches. They will teach you to obey the commandments because of a fear of the Lord.

Is sex outside of marriage or porn a Biblical sin? We must refer to first Corinthians 6 to get more information. Read this chapter to get the answer.

A person is made up of Spirit, Soul and Body. Certain sins fully divide us from God . A person who idolizes lust is worshiping the wrong thing. The Bible says we cannot serve God and sinful pleasure. Lust makes the body comes first instead of the Spirit. Run from sins that quench the Spirit.

Study the Bible books of Matthew and 1 Corinthians. Then make it a priority to find a great Church. A Church that teaches obedience. Make a list of Churches you want to try. After you visit each one make an appointment with the Pastor or Priest to meet with them to see how much help they can give you with your addiction.

Find a church that will tell you to stop committing the same deadly sins over and over again. Hebrews 10:26 says we can and will run out of chances. Find a church that teaches obedience.

Some of you are currently attending a Church that says; our Church is the only way to Heaven. If they are not helping you with your addiction switch Churches right away. If what they are teaching is not helping you, that is 100% proof that they are not the only way.

So what Churches are good? Sometimes the Assembly of God or the Nazarine Churches are good, sometimes they are not. Ask people that you know; what Churches around here really help people change for the better? Then try them and see if they are good for you. The only Christ following Churches that I would avoid are the Jehovah’s Witness (who subtract multiple verses from the Bible saying they are not true) and the Mormons (Who add multiple verses to the Bible from the writings of a very mixed up man).

Believing the Bible allows you to live in the light. It allows you to fight your way to joy through a relationship with Jesus. Find a Church that believes every verse in the Bible because it will be led by a Pastor who has real answers for you.

This week make it your written goal to find a great Church that can help you. Lastly keep working on your own to seek out help about addiction from experts, groups, books, web sites and everything else we can get help from.
What if we were given a brand new start to life? Put into paradise in the Garden of Eden. Everything brand new except that we still have our same old thoughts and ways of thinking. What advice would we tell our-self?

I would say: “Dear Self, you are getting some of the destruction out of your life by reading several chapters of the Bible which has increased your faith. You are spending time in prayer every day which has helped you learn why and how to overcome sin and addiction. You are focusing on treating others with love and praying about being filled with love. This has caused you to realize that people are more important than any addiction. You are focused on finding and fulfilling your purpose which is filling you with joy.

But remember, satan will come into the garden. He will bring new updated tricks and temptations. But they will be the same old tricks and temptations disguised as something new and great. So today and every day focus on the fact that _____ steals your joy. Focus on the fact that sin steals your joy. Focus on the fact that being a slug and not fighting to fulfill your purpose steals your joy. Instead choose Christ who fills you with joy.”

Some of you have not experienced this great joy. But you have experienced great darkness and depression. You only continue to read because you know what you don’t want. But please understand – you can’t be doing everything we talk about without finding joy. Some of you are doing 25%, others 50%, others 75%. Sell out and give 100%. Sell out and do everything. You will never regret it if you do.

If you know that addiction steals your joy than you can use that information as a weapon. You can say during your high temptation times:  _____ steals my joy.

 

Read John 18, 2nd Corinthians 2 and Proverbs 16

Continue to read the Purpose Driven Life

If you are on track great; if not review the red letters from day 5.
Pray: “Father give me the wisdom to write a prayer that will help me to start overcoming my addiction.” For example – you feel like your porn use has hurt your ability to be a great parent. You might pray “Father help me to care more about my kids future than I care about lust.” Once you have that prayer that really speaks to what will motivate you – start praying it in earnest. You can pray it as many times each day as you want as long as you are sincere in increasing your desire to change with each prayer. God is not counting how many times I pray my prayer. He is looking at how my heart changes as I sincerely pray it each time and how I allow him to lead me to better choices because now (because of prayer and extra effort) I am starting to see reality clearer.

Sex addiction has unique challenges. Often this addiction is a compulsively driven activity which seems to fill an empty place in your life. Sometimes it fills a need for excitement and other times it is used to forget pain or distress. Sex tunes out reality and puts you in a fantasy world. Some people take this sex fantasy world to such an extreme that it causes them to lose any chance of having real love and intamacy.

Sex is a jiant vacuum which seems to give an answer to a vacancy in our lives. Michael Hardiman in his book Overcoming addictin says. “As the feeling of emptiness increases, the person tries harder to fill it with what is actually causing the emptiness, leading to the futile cycle that seems to be a central element in all addiction, namely, using something to meet one’s needs that can’t really meet those needs, and that damages the person in the processs”.

Many people with this addiction do not understand the effects that this habit has on them. The reason for this is there are some direct effects and many indirect effects. First the direct effects. Sex addiction can hurt marriages, jobs, finances, families and many other things and it can be a pathway to the disaster of infidelity and divorce.

But for many people it is the indirect effect that is killing them and they dont even realize it.

Maybe you just keep staying up late, your job performance suffers and you get fired. Maybe you keep cheating and  your interest in your spouse starts to decline.

Maybe sex is your priority and your finances suffer because you just dont care anymore.

 

How to stop a sex addiction tip #1: Sex addiction by its very nature makes an individual- more intent on satisfying selfish needs even at the expense of his marriage, family, financial stability, and career”.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #2 When sex has become your master, then you have become its slave. It will take everything from you that you will let it take, then it will continue to take other things.

Sex addiction can lead to anxiety, sleep problems, and severe depression. The short term excitement and pleasure that it gives comes with a ton of pain, damage and lingering psychological effects.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #3.To stop a sex addiction the first step is to clean out everything from your house, work and everywhere else that is porn or that leads you back to your sex addiction. Next you need to make changes to stay clean. Uncut movies are often filled with suggestive themes and sometimes nudity.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #4 If you look at any nudity or smut you will fall back into your addiction. It will either happen that day or that week.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #5 Do not rent movies and do not have movie channels like HBO, Showtime etc. If you get free movie channels that still show nudity block them so that you can’t even surf through them. If you want to find clean movies to watch, use the program guide to that you don’t wander upon a nude scene that will likely put you over the edge.

How to stop sex addiction  tip #6 Instead of watching uncut movies the best solution is to wait for the movie to be released to TV. There are 2 advantages to this. The first is that TV takes out a lot of the nudity. The 2nd is that if you didnt pay for the film and if it is smutty it is easier to change the channel.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #7 Always be learning what triggers your addiction. For you, TV shows which talk about smut may do it or non-nude scenes which show people in bed acting things out may trigger you. So always be learning about what triggers you, and always be making changes to avoid these triggers like the plague.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #8 However the best solution for cleaning up your entertainment viewing is to find new clean things to view. There are many clean shows out there that you can watch. Develop new habits and routines. Don’t surf on your TV, use the program guide until you know that what you will watch will not trigger you.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #9 Watch TV with your remote next to you at all times. Even clean shows nowadays slip into the gutter from time to time. Instantly change the channel if what you are watching is a trigger point for you. Don’t let one minute of indulgence bring you back into the destruction your addiction causes you.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #10 Internet Porn. Never keep sexsites in your favorites.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #11 Never turn on your computor untill you know exactly what you are going to do or watch.

How to stop sex addiction tip #12 If porn is leading you back to addiction  get a porn filter.

Realize that sometimes what you are looking at or thinking about when you are not on your computor can be a hidden trigger that only reveals itself when you turn your computor on.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #13 Avoid seemingly borderline websites like 100 hottest celebrities, bikini hotties, 100 sexiest bodies etc. Looking at these people for you is likely the same as an alcoholic saying they can drink just one beer.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #14 You need to find alternative activities and entertainment in order to suceed.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #15 Your thought need to change everywhere that you are. What are you going to think about when you go somewhere you will be highly tempted. I am a Christian so I am praying and worshipping God when I am out and about and see an available person. Since I am busy praying I only notice them for a second or two and I am back to what important things that I am doing. I am always preparing to spread the gospel. This goal helps keep me out of trouble.

 

 

How to stop a sex addiction tip #16 Make a goal to have a plan (written is best)of what clean activities you can do over the next two days. Do this every day.

The rest of this article will contain material which is Spiritual in nature only. The Bible says in Colossians 3:5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. So lust = idolatry. Idolatry is the worship of Something. Matthew 5:28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 says 9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Yes God loves you and He will forgive you for your past sin, but you have to stop. Why does God care if we have sex outside of marriage. The reason is because He knows about all of the destruction it causes. Stope frankly God insists that we live a happy purpose filled, productive life.

To find your purpose start by praying and reading the Bible daily(Matthew and 1st Corinthians are good places to start. Video’s 1 and 2 have a lot of info on how to stop addiction and how to find your purpose. Video #2 has info on how to become a Christian. Lastly never give up, never, never, never.

How to stop a sex addiction

I have a 40 day program called Sex/Porn freedom (which you can access on the left). With that program I give you a few things to work on each day. Quite frankly I put in way more idea’s in this article than I should have put in for a single read. So you can choose to read this or start with day one of my 30 day program (which you can access on the left).

I usually start these articles by talking about the massive amounts of destruction the addiction will do to you. In this case I am not going to do that because many people know all about the destruction but they still can’t stop. But I will give you the short version. How to stop a sex addiction#1: out of control sex will ruin you, destroy your health and sometimes harm others. But instead of dwelling on that I am going to talk a little bit about why many people indulge.

Addictions are popular when people have something missing in their lives or when they need to bury some pain or hurt. But when drugs  becomes an addiction it quickly becomes a dark hole where relationships, ethics and morals become a much lower priority than they should have.

How to stop a sex addiction#2: For some people one of the main reasons you indulge is because that is one of the few things that you feel like you have control over. It is your choice, it is your thing – it is who you are. But this is a cruel lie. A sex addiction is a force and it is a driving force. How to stop a sex addiction#3: There are some addictions that we think we are controlling but those addictions are actually controlling us. Over time addictions cause a loss of control of everything.

So why do people keep indulging after they have decided to quit? In most people there is a dueling of personalities. Your mind tells you that you have to stop out of control sex  but your pleasure seeking flesh tells you that it will feel good.

Key Point #1 As long as you are ruled by the pleasure principle you will always struggle with addiction. The pleasure seeker may become selfish, immature, demanding and short sited. How to stop a sex addiction#4: In the long run, pleasure which is from an addiction always has a price to pay which is much higher than what you want to pay.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #5: Instead of being ruled by the pleasure principle strive to be ruled by the moral principle. The moral principle is wise and rational and it leads to real long term joy instead of fake short term pleasure which leads to destruction. This principle believes that rules like that of your country or laws from the Bible are there to make your life better. When you follow this principle you willingly give up your solution of choice (out of control sex ) in exchange for another activity. How to stop a sex addiction tip #6: The reason you make this choice is because you now believe that choosing an alternative activity will give you the best life over the next 7 days and longer. So if you stay clean today and develop new activities you may have a hard day today but your week and your future will be better.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #7: Always choose the Wisdom of staying clean today so that you can have a good life all week, and all year instead of giving in to the short term pleasure and destruction of out of control sex  for one day. Over time staying clean is a lifestyle which is always better.

Out of control sex  is an escape for many people. One can escape from tension, anger, lack of success, pain and many other things. How to stop a sex addiction tip #8: We need to get rid of the escapist mindset because our one day of escape always ruins more than one day and it often ruins a whole week or longer. Along the same lines many have the philosophy that if it feels good do it. The problem is, that the feeling good of a few hours usually causes the feeling bad of a few days. Instead of having this damaging mindset, embrace finding your purpose, and living the right way which will lead to happiness over time.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #9: Develop the habit of thinking about other things all of the time instead of thinking about out of control sex .

How to stop a sex addiction tip #10: We can see that being overly sensitive to emotional pain or failure is often a trigger to addiction. So first of all we need to be determined to be tougher and more emotionally ready for life’s constant problems. 2nd, negative emotions can lead us into addiction.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #11: we need to always work on getting rid of anger and other negative emotions which are often hidden triggers. Lastly we need to avoid circumstances which lead to negative emotions (if possible). Good planning and flexible planning can help you avoid circumstances which will trigger you.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #12: John Howard Prin also wrote “In time I learned that if my external motivation was strong enough, then my internal impulses could be curbed.”

For some people a great enough amount of pain or a change of thinking will cause them to change their behavior.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #13: If what you think about has changed, then your internal impulses can be controlled.

This is key point #2. You need to think about the benefits of quitting more often than you think about the experience of out of control sex . How to stop a sex addiction tip #14:  Make a note to remind yourself to do this untill it becomes a daily habit.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #15: You need to think more about the destruction out of control sex  causes you than you think about the pleasure/pain relief it gives.

But we have to be brutally honest: we are as sick as our addictions are. If your addictions are causing harm to others you need to immediately get outside help.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #16: Addiction tells us that something we can do (indulging in out of control sex ) can compensate for what is missing inside of us. It is a lie. Religion will tell you to quit out of control sex . To control the fire that burns inside of you. But I will tell you that you need to increase the passion in your life. Your life needs to surge with more passion for something then it ever has before. You were created to have a dramatic impact on this world. Most of you have never experienced the rush of knowing what God wants you to do.

How to stop a sex addiction tip #17: “Solutions” Try Christianity. Study the Bible and learn how to get prayer answered (you will learn how in my 40 day program. Pray about negative emotions that may be a trigger for you. Learn to understand that the commands in the Bible are there so that you can avoid destruction and find real joy. Learn to understand the destruction of sin. Pray always about finding your purpose and learn about living in the glory of Jesus Christ. He will fill what is missing in your life but you have to figure out what He wants you to do. God wants you to find your purpose and He might someday want you to spread the Gospel. When you learn how to do what God wants you to do, you will start to have more passion and joy than you ever had.
