Overcoming Pornography And Sex Addiction

If you are like most of our readers, you consider yourself a practicing Muslim. You are able to maintain a successful career, run a business, or are completing your college education. You are well liked by your family, friends, and respective community. You strive to be happy, productive, living on purpose, with your connection and faith in God being strong. 

There seems to be one thing though that is weighing you down and keeping you unhappy; one dark problem that you've struggled with for many years that you cannot shake off no matter how much you try: your struggles with pornography and sex.

Maybe you feel or have felt like this reader:

I believe it's easier within my community for me to be an alcoholic or a drug addict to be accepted and receive help, than it is to be a Muslim struggling with a sex addiction.

You Are Not Alone

Chances are high that more than once you may have tried to reclaim your life and break free. More than once you may have tried to change with an initial burst of renewed hope and energy, but it returned to what you've experienced before – MORE of the same frustration and despair. 

We want to reassure you that you are at the right place and you are not alone.

Since 2009, we've helped  thousands of Muslim men and women from over 35 different countries with a wide range of sexually compulsive behaviors - from those addicted to sexual chat rooms and pornography to those engaging in anonymous sex, to those addicted to relationships and love.
