HELP! am addicted to porn!

This is a very sensitive topic,I will try my best to keep it PG. So a colleague of mine was asked by a patient if there is any cure for pornography addiction outside religious This is a controversial topic,the kind that makes people uneasy.the kind that a lot of people struggling with it are too embarrassed to seek help for for fear of being g judged.they will rather let it eat deep and destroy them than admit they are guilty of this "unholy act"

We need not shy away from this because its a real issue,
Now i know different people see porn addiction in different ways, but this is my opinion being addicted to pornography does not make you a terrible person the act itself is what is terrible,so rather than drag and embarrass someone who is struggling with this you can counsel them and help them breakout of it or better still be an angel and show them this article so we can all be great together.
 What is ponography addiction?
Simply put it's a problematic preoccupations with sexualizedd imagery that lasts six months or longer and causes significant problems in the user's life.
 How do you tell if you have a porn addiction?

 well if it controls you and you regularly view it for hours and often feel you can't stop, it eats into your social time,work time,you get too engrossed you skip meals then you have a problem and you need help.
 It's not peculiar to a particular race,financial status, gender, or even religion.christians are struggling with pornography even pastors are not immune to it.
In respect to the patients question these are tips I think can help him kick it out of his system.

The first step is to be true to yourself,admit that you have a problem and be willing to quit. It starts with you,you have to make that decision for yourself.

You have to open up to someone who can help you, it could be your pastor,your partner,a trusted friend or therapist. Someone who loves you enough not to judge you and is willing to support you every step of the way. And you have to be totally honest with him/her.

Get rid of all triggers.
Throw away all magazines,pictures,videos and all potential triggers.Block entry points, this means have a porn blocker on your phone,computer at home and at the office. Unsubscribe from porn websites. If you have people sending you compromising emails block them. If you have friends who are pushing you towards all of this stay away from them.

Go to God in prayers.
The scripture says we can do all things through christ that strengthen us. The addiction might be beyond your control but not belong God's control. Study your bible,get involved in church programs and outreach this will keep you busy and fill the void of the addiction.

what helpful tip can you give to those sufferings from this addition
