Heath Lambert counsels people with two practical first steps to take in defeating their addiction to pornography. Both are humble pleas for help:
Pray About Your Pornography Addiction
“No matter how guilty you’re feeling, no matter how ashamed you are of what you’re doing… that is the moment when you need to draw near to the throne of grace and receive help in your time of need” (Heb 4:16).
Tell Someone Else
“You have to find a pastor or a wise Christian friend who can help you. Don’t tell one of your peers who also struggles with the same thing. By definition, they won’t know what to say. You need someone with spiritual maturity and wisdom to get you someplace where you are not.”
