Tips on Staying Free of Pornography

When you have turned on the porn, please remember that is not the right time to resolve to quit. You have to “Resolve today what will determine your success tomorrow”

  1. Avoid places that sell porn e.g. the guy that walks up to you to give you the “adult version”.
  2. Don’t surf the internet alone on PC or on your phone
  3. Avoid sexually explicit movies (usually R rated and some PG rated)
  4. Avoid looking at people in a sexual manner. If you can’t look at a person without having sexual thoughts, then don’t look at all!
  5. If married, avoid being separated from your spouse, especially in the evening
  6. Avoid being alone
  7. Pre-plan alternate, non-pornographic activities you will do when you feel the urge to view porn. Examples:
  • Ask God for help in prayer
  • Pray for others struggling with porn addiction
  • Plan a fast to break the bondage (resolve to also do a fast of your eyes)
  • Call a friend
  • Exercise/Workout
  • Recite Bible verses audibly e.g. 1 Corinthians 6:13-18, Psalms 91, Ephesians 6:10-12
  • Sing praise songs to God or Listen to Gospel Music

What you can do ASAP!

  1. Install internet filters on your computer and give a friend the password; use a text only browser (like Lynx) if search engine pictures are tempting you
  2. When tempted, remind yourself the truth about the lies behind the temptations and ask God to suppress the feeling till the right time
  3. Take actions to clean out your home from any physical or spiritual stumbling blocks related to porn
  4. Take action to build your spiritual walls of resistance through some online courses e.g. on porn-free.org or candeocan.com and studying the word of God.

      Hi Martha,
      Its great to hear that you found the material that is here useful. I went through a very rough patch struggling with these bondages and this is what helped me. Welcome to Mavuno Church South C sometime and join a program called Mizizi to help you strengthen your Christian foundation. You will get answers to questions you have always had about God. Buy yourself some Hillsong Worship DVD to help you in the transformation. Never give up, it won’t stop in a day, but resolve to kill the bondage. The one weapon I have used is teaching myself the bible. Start with Hebrews 4:12-13, and Eph 6:10-12 and pray for the hunger to learn God’s word. Good day.
