Battling With Pornography And Masturbation..

Dear beloved I am a guy of 23 years and have been battling with this issue of viewing pornography materials and masturbating for the past 4 years. I try all I could to stop but it proved futile. After the act, I feel guilt, will ask God for forgiveness and later repeat the process again. I AM REALLY TROUBLED AND DON'T KNOW THE WAY OUT.PLEASE HELP OF OUT.THANK YOU

Hi Freedom fighter, I’ll start by really commending you for your courage in coming out with and confessing this act because satan has used pornography and masturbation to hold a lot of people especially believers in bondage. This is a huge slap to the kingdom of darkness and I also want to assure you that confessing your weakness and seeking help/counsel is the first step to your victory.

One thing you have to understand is the fact that you can’t win this battle by your own strength. When the urge to view pornographic materials or to masturbate comes, start praying and cry out to God the Holy Spirit in you to strengthen you so you can resist that urge/temptation.

The Bible guarantees that our cry for help will be heard because Jesus is sympathetic to our struggle. He faced the same kind of problems we do. He “understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same temptations we do, yet he did not sin.” (Hebrews 4:15 NLT)

God is waiting to help you, why don’t you turn constantly and daily to Him more often? Honestly, you can’t do anything apart from Him! I know that sometimes, you might be embarrassed to ask God for help. But the Bible says, “Let us have confidence, then, and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it.” (Hebrews 4:16 TEV)

God’s love is everlasting, and his patience endures forever. Ask him for help and then watch how He will help you overcome this temptation because He has already made a way out for you. Don't lose hope and never stop praying. It might not stop today but believe in your heart that God has started His work in you.

You can also check my blog archive to see where I fully treated a question closely related to yours. The title of the question in the blog archive is “In The Grip Of Pornography And Masturbation”

Remain richly blessed dear..


  1. Good answer Love Doctor we thank God for you, that is the solution from spiritual view of it and Spiritual controlls the physical. But let me contribute pratically, i wants to believe that this question can be more addressed by man bcos i doubt if ladies experience could be same in this issue. firstly Brother you need to discipline yourself, if you know where and when this always happens to you, then you need to keepoff. e.g there is a particular station on my TV mostly the film they show is Pornography film and i always watch their film but when i discover is getting too much and irritating to my Spirit. i call myself together and decides that never will i tune to that station again and if anybody tune it there, i ask them to change it instantly, why? because ever since i watch it even though they are showing nice film my thinking will change and started remembering the Pornography i've watch there. so now i've forgorten that station by God's grace. So you need to move away from that area or stop watching ordinary film but only gosple, i'm sure things will Change even when you pray......cheers

  2. Man-to-man. I like that. Thanks Abdron and I hope Freedom fighter will visit again and read your advice/contribution. God bless you..

  3. Amen & you too.................... cheers

  4. my mind is weak with sexual thoughts and it makes me have anxiety disorder.I am afraid to confront a women.

    1. The Anxiety Disorder From Your Question Comes From Your Mind That Is Filled With Sexual Thoughts. Your Thoughts, First Of All Has To Be Submitted To Christ Because The Scriptures Made Us Know That "Out Of The Abundance Of The Heart, The Mouth Speaks". From Your Case, I'll Say That Not Only Does It Affect Your Mouth(Confronting A Woman) But It Also Affects Your Mind (The Anxiety Disorder).

      Permit Me To Ask You This Question; Are You A Born Again Believer In Christ Jesus? The First Step To Conquering This Problem Is By Giving Your Life To Christ And Surrendering Totally To His Lordship. Once This Is Done, You'll Experience Victory And You'll No Longer Be Afraid To Confront A Woman.

      I'll Finalize My Advice Based On Romans 12:1-2 Which I'll Say Like This: Therefore I Urge You, My Brother In Christ Jesus, In View Of God's Mercy, To Offer Your Body As A Living Sacrifice, Holy And Pleasing To God - This Is Your Spiritual Act Of Worship.

      Do Not Conform Any Longer To The Pattern Of This World, But Be Transformed By The RENEWING OF YOUR MIND. Then And Only Then, Will You Be Able To Test And Approve What God's Will Is - His Good, Pleasing And Perfect Will.

      Do This And You're On The Right Path To Freedom..


I'll Really Love To See Your Contributions/Advice Too, Thanks!
