Freed from an Addiction

For about 10-15 years I had been in the bondage of an addiction. I did not recognise at first that using pornography was something that is highly addictive and that it could impact severely on my self esteem and relationships with my loved ones.

Fortunately the Lord intervened and showed me the path to rid myself of this addictive behaviour. I was introduced to a 12 step program that brought me closer to my Saviour Jesus Christ, and recently I discovered a talk/video by a neurosurgeon, Dr Donald Hilton about the effect of pornography on the brain.

These events in my life freed me from the bondage of addiction, and today I feel like a free man! There are still challenges in life, but I am able to work through those with confidence that the Lord will help me and that he answers my prayers.

Now I can feel the blessings of the Lord in my life, and the true joy that comes from living his commandments. Our Saviour said “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV)
