Difficult post- don't read if you are upset

Hi, I feel uncomfortable posting this, but I need to talk to someone about my feelings at the moment, and from my experience Christians are nice people who are good listeners.

I am definitely addicted to porn and sexual imagery online. Its just too easy- I loaded on a blocking programme but it was easy to override when the temptation became too much. We are basically designed to want to have sex with every attractive female we meet- its in our genes. so its not surprising...
