Three Practical Tips to Quit Porn

Matt addresses a truth that may be hard to accept at first, but actually makes perfect sense: we tend to over-spiritualize addiction to porn if we or someone we love is struggling with it. We often think prayer and the sacraments are enough to overcome this sin. While these spiritual exercises are very helpful—as Matt explains—someone who is struggling with this sin needs to do something that attacks the problem more deliberately, directly, and externally. Matt suggests three practical tips to quit porn.

  1. Find a Sexaholics Anonymous group near you
  2. Find a good certified sex addiction therapist
  3. Find a good spiritual director

Matt also offers some of his resources to help in the fight: The Porn Myth and Love People, Use Things Podcast.

Also take a look at Ascension’s Theology of the Body series.
