Free E-book on Pornography: Chapter 5; If You Are Serious about Recovery, the First Step Is Here!

Fight Fire with Fire

“Pray the Following Prayer and

Feel Your Heart Stir

Within You.”

Featured imageI am discouraged, God. I do not know what to do.

I am having all these sexual feelings.

Every time that I think I have pornography beat, I am back online at an old porn site.

I go for almost a week; miserably, I then lose 1, 2, 3 weeks to pornography.

I’m afraid.

I’m experiencing pressure.

I want to live right.

I don’t even think it’s possible.

God, I have heard about unconditional love.

Is it conceivable?

I am not good.

For me, masturbation is as eating—3 times per day, many times more;

And Pornography is the result.

God, Save Me!

Surrendering my will to the higher power, I thought about it.

I meditated on inspirational readings and felt a tinge of hope.


“Then called I upon the name of the Lord;

O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and He helped me.

Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.

For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living” (Psalm 116:4-9, n. d., KJV).

I then prayed, “God, what do I do next?”

I heard a soft voice within my heart, saying, “Trust and acknowledge that you can do nothing without me.”

I believe with all my heart. I trust you, O God.

Thank you, Jesus.

In the year 1971 I became a store manager at age 19. I discovered I had a gift for mentoring. I gave one on one coaching, instruction and teaching with ease. And, I loved it. However, I had a problem that held me back from achieving my full potential. I was addicted to porn. When I was going through my puberty years in life, I found pornography (adult magazines) in my Dad's closet. I was hooked. I had my ups and downs throughout my life: Ups, when I was off of porn and using my gift: and, Downs, when I was using porn. Porn captured my attention, holding me back. I found the secrets to breaking free from porn. Like anyone else, I have to work at keeping my emotions positive, every day, to stay free. Limiting emotions--fear, doubt, hate, lust, sloth, pride, any emotion that kills joy. Joy is the ultimate weapon against porn. You have it; porn loses its hold on you. I dedicate this blog to those who are looking for ways to end pornography in their life. To Your Peace, Power and Plenty, Dale P.S. The picture above is not me. The photo represents all families free from pornography.

  1. A lot of pornography is also the result of slavery I don’t think we want to support that either. What two consenting adults do is fine with me but not when one of the partners is powerless without the ability to consent.
    It is a very serious subject.
