This is a very fascinating book by David E. Caton, which deals with the issue of pornography addiction. Caton covers the usual areas of most Christian books on this subject, but what separates this book from others is the information on how pornography affects the body and brain. Caton looks at how epinephrine and adrenaline play a factor in keeping the porn addict hooked physically and mentally. I thought this view was unique and helpful. He also shows how our diet, alcohol and drugs, and even fatigue can make provision for this addiction. He also gives great advice on renewing the mind with Scripture and guarding the eyes. He also shows how unnatural acts have no place, even within marriage. In summation, what I really like about this book is how Caton doesn't neglect to focus on the body in overcoming addiction. It seems most Christian books just emphasize the spiritual aspects of this addiction, but totally neglect the physical component of the body and brain. He also shows how there can even be physical withdrawal symptoms, when giving up pornography and sexual addiction. This is a great, but underrated book, and I highly recommended it to you.

My wife forced me to get this book because of my addiction. After reading it from cover to cover multiple times, I found myself loving pornography even more. My addiction became worse and now, I feel as if I am on the downward spiral to other, much worse things. Skip the book and instead, go to an adult book store and buy as much as you can. Trying to get bored of pornos is better than trying to wean yourself from it.

Although it tries to help, I am still addicted to pornography. I seem to be using it more now than ever before.

Both of the reveiws Ive read said that this book didnt help them and it made it worse. One even said his wife made him read it. I have read this book and God has giving me the strengh to overcome the addiction to pornography. I will agree that this book does not have all the knowledge you need to overcome this addiction. I read another book called "Every Man's Battle" Before I read this one. The books combine showed me what I needed. I needed accountability, encouragement, and more knowledge. These two books gave me the desire to start a non-profit organization and get involved in a sexual addictions group. Once I realized that it isnt me that overcomes the addiction , but that its God. I also found I needed to confess my sins and be encouraged to stop. After that my disire for porn and lust evaporated. Trust in God not yourself. Get into a group. E-mail me if you want more info on how to get help.
