    My name I Jeremy I am 29 and I have been married for 7 years with 2 children. I am addicted to pornography. Up until now I have been trying to save up enough money to go to an Every Man’s Battle but due to recent financial difficulties I have not been able to. Before today the only thing that was stopping me from asking for help was my pride, but the conviction of the Holy Spirit has lead me to ignore my pride and do whatever it takes to get help. I listen to the show often and was convicted by a man who called in on the show who was struggling with telling his wife about his addiction to pornography. The excuses he gave were the exact same as my excuses. Though I have told my wife about my problem, and went to other men in the church for accountability the lust for pornography still arises in me from time to time and I want to do whatever it takes to obey God. Pornography has been a problem for me ever since I was 16 years old. At times I felt as if I was a worthless human being who was incapable of breaking the hold porn has had on me. Now I want to get rid of it once and for all. If someone will help me I will do whatever it takes to get to an E.M.B. and help someone else in the future. My email is

    Please, please, work on the workshop for women who are sexually addicted, romantically addicted and relationally addicted. I need this so bad. I’ve followed your ministry for years and trust your teaching and advice. I’ve been going to SLAA support groups, but it lacks the Christian perspective. I was married for many years to a sex addict and when I finally decided to divorce, I became involved with a married man and had an affair and now I’m stuck in another relationship. Please keep me informed.
