Question

Hey! During my vacation, by God's grace, I was able to control by temptation of porn for a week. So I used to watch porn only once in a week.  Now again after vacation, unfortunately I activated the net on my phone, and I watch porn for at least twice in a day. Please help. I really want to quit this addiction.


Answer

If you want to quit, and I do encourage you to do so, you can't do it by compromising. From what you are saying, you have been treating sinning only once a week as being successful. That would be like a guy who claims he has conquered stealing because he only steals once a week now instead of every day.

The problem is that you have not really changed your attitude toward pornography. You continue to find it acceptable so long as you don't do it too often. But sin is defined by the action, not how often you do it.
