XXX Church offers advice to porn and sex addicts who can't afford to get treatment

For porn and sex addicts who do not have the financial means to get much-needed treatment, the road to recovery might seem pretty dismal and bleak.

However, XXX Church, an online ministry dedicated to helping people get over their porn and sex addictions, says resolving this issue need not cost money.

"Hey, we've all been there before. Sometimes it can feel like life is stacked against you, and then to be carrying the weight of a porn addiction – but seemingly without the resources to do anything about it – that can be incredibly disheartening," it says on its website.

The good news is that people can get over their addictions even without therapy, and it all starts with finding a friend, a sibling, a parent, a spouse, a pastor, a mentor, or anyone who is willing to take on the path of recovery with them.

"For starters, it costs nothing to get accountable. The first step in dealing with porn addiction is to let someone else into your world and talk to them about your struggle. You'd be surprised how far a simple admission will go toward lifting the weight off your shoulders," it says.

XXX Church says it is important that the person addicts confide in is someone they trust and who genuinely cares about them. As difficult as it might be to let them know what one is dealing with, it is still needed for recovery.

"It can be a tough thing to consider, but once you've done it, you'll breathe much easier and hold your head higher," XXX Church guarantees.

For its part, the online ministry even offers a porn filter which addicts can access anytime. "Since so much of porn is now consumed over the Internet, we offer X3watch – accountability software to help you make better decisions about where you're going while you're online," it says.
