Has anyone helped a man overcome porn addiction? adult content

My husband is addicted to porn. By his own admission and by the fact that he used to watch it several times a day and sometimes would watch it over sex with me. He has recently tried to give it up. Went 2-3 weeks without it. It was hell for him just like someone giving up smoking. He was crabby and rude. So he finally looked at it the other day and told me about it. He said it wasn't that good or as good as it used to be for him. I honestly don't care about him looking at it occasionally for entertainment but I do not want what he was before. It was like an obsession. Without it he does more housework spends more time with me and dedicates more energy to our sex life. SO...how do I know he won't fall back if he watches occasionally? Have you had this issue? How did you overcome? I just would like to know others experiences.

  • You cant make him stop he has to stop because he wants to. An addiction is an addiction you wouldnt give an alcoholic a drink so you cant give someone a porn addiction an occasional pass to watch it. He has to stop completely and if he cares about your marriage and you care about your marriage there is NO place for pornography! It is trashy and exploits women in a horrible manner and there is no place for it in a relationship. good luck

  • Southeast Christian Church has a class for guys addicted to porn, it is not good for him to watch it even sometimes this could end up bad. Before you know it you won't satisfy him at all because what he's watching, you wont measure up to. Or to be able to meet his fantasies. I think he needs help before it's too late
