Tips on Staying Free of Pornography

Avoid stores that sell porn, especially those that display it behind the cash register so you can see it as you check out
Don't surf the internet alone
Avoid sexually explicit movies (usually R rated and some PG rated)
Avoid looking at people in a sexual manner. If you can't look at a person without having sexual thoughts, then don't look at all!
If married, avoid being separated from your spouse, especially in the evening
Avoid being alone
Pre-plan alternate, non-pornographic activities you will do when you feel the urge to view porn. Examples:
Ask God for help in prayer
Pray for others struggling with porn addiction
Call a friend
Recite Bible verses audibly
Sing praise songs to God
Install internet filters on your computer and give a friend the password; use a text only browser (like Lynx) if search engine pictures are tempting you
When tempted, remind yourself the truth about the lies behind the temptations
Take actions to clean out your home from any physical or spiritual stumbling blocks related to porn
