Its called Cyber Patrol,my mom and dad installed it on my computer,and It Blocks everything that is bad,Some stuff can leak through,but you can easily block the source!

Now sometimes it reads false readings,like a Calf being born,it labels It as Adult stuff.... :hehee

I have been having a horrible time dealing with an addiction to pornography. I sometimes manage to go weeks at a time without looking at anything then i start up again. I have tried prayer, reading my bible and talking to my brother about it but nothing seems to help.

Get rid of the computer if you have too. Whatever it takes. For me I had to get absolutely sick and tired of the stuff. I was so tired of the roller coaster in my life of guilt and conviction. I am so happy now that I am away from this stuff.

I have my computer so filtered now I can only get on a handful of sites. But if I have to throw the whole computer away I will. I also disclosed this problem to my wife who has been very understanding and such a blessing to me. She is helping me and not judging me. She has been great. Don't know your situation but I will be praying for you and all the brethren that are dealing with this wicked, rotten sin.

I don't know if any of my brothers out there have this same problem, but my Iphone is my source lustful temptation. I ignore my Bible app and go straight to the web when I break down. I want to get rid of my Iphone, but I would rather just choose to not sin instead. I just recently found this thread and I feel better having read the responses. I felt like I had to confess to you all here after reading your confessions. It does make me feel stronger. I know I can kick this terrible sin. I would say I was or am addicted, but I can see Jesus is certainly freeing me of it. I am determined to come to this board and read my Bible when I have the urge now. It sure is hard when even the bare shoulders of a woman can get it all started.

Thank you all.

I know this may be wrong, because this is a very personal subject, and mods, if I am overstepping boundaries - please delete this post. You see, porn was a big part of what destroyed my first marraige. The funny thing is, my ex-husband told me before we got married that he had a serious problem. My fault in things was I was not supportive, did not react as a Christian woman should, and let it infect how I viewed my husband and that my attitude was not good is an understatement. It led to some very sinful behavior on both of our parts. Our marraige did not survive, and I was just as much to blame. But this is what I really want you to think about. Would you, as a married man, want porn to infect your wife's mind? Because that is what happened to me. This is extremely embarrasing to admit, and I have never admitted this to anyone but Jesus. It started out with me wanting to know exactly what he was looking at so I could try to figure out why. Then it started working on my mind and desires. It led me to do things for my ex-husband that I would never have entertained, had I not taken that little "peek". So many are right in that this is becoming a problem for women as well. I started looking up things on my own, although I never purchased anything. I haven't done it for a very long time, but the thoughts are still there. It is a fight and a struggle. It is an issue in my marraige now, because when I am with my husband, those images creep in. I made a promise when I married my current husband that I would never deny him, would never give him a reason to search out anything else, and to my knowledge, he hasn't. But it kills me that these thoughts infect my relationship with him. Please know, I am not blaming my ex-husband for this. I knew it was wrong, and would open a door, just by letting it in once. I did it anyway, and have struggled with lustful thoughts ever since. It was my choice, and it grabbed me, as it has grabbed so many of you. Just think, if your wife were trying to understand what drove your compulsion, and then she too, fell into the trap, how would you feel, knowing that you had a part in leading her into this sin and struggle? What if it was your son, or your daughter? In this day and age we are in more danger than ever from the sins of lust, fornication and adultery and it is no respecter of person. I would like to think that if I wasn't dealing with my first husbands addiction, I wouldn't have this sin, but I can't honestly say that that is true. It could have grabbed me from almost anywhere these days. I sometimes think sin can be like the flu, and can infect others when you don't even think you are contagious. Just remember, please, it can infect your family in so many other ways than the obvious, distrust, betrayal etc. I would never want my sin to infect others. This has been my accountability. I would not want my daughters to find out, and find that something was awakened within them. Sexual perversion is around us everywhere today. I pray for each and everyone of you who are struggling with this and I pray that God will deliver us all, and heal our hearts and families. Like I said, I apologize if I have overstepped my bounds, but this is an issue that I struggle with personally, and I just wanted to share my story from a woman's point of view.

Love, Prayers, and God's blessings to you all!
