Houston's material is excellent and will be a great tool for those who are struggling with addictions. I will be recommending his book to those I come across in my ministry who have similar obstacles to overcome.

I really like how Hugh spells out not only why porn is a sin, but also how it hurts others. Especially your spouse, if you're married. Hugh provides several action items you can follow to break free of not only this addiction but many other addictions you might be struggling with. He also lists the action items conveniently at the end of the book.
Reading this book has strengthened my resolve to never fall into pornography's grips again. I think it can help anyone who truly wants to break free from this terrible addiction.
The misadventure starts when he was exposed to porn while visiting his cousins when he was a teen. Getting married was not the panacea for this cruel addiction. As Houston writes: "I thought having a wife and a healthy sexual relationship with her would cure my desire to look at porn. I was dead wrong." He makes a great analogy by comparing a pattern of self-gratification with jumping off a cliff just to get the rush of the fall. When Houston confessed his secret sin to his wife she felt betrayed, but ultimately their relationship was restored.
Houston finally found a support group of men to help him escape the darkness of objectifying the daughters of Eve. He wrote a journal to help him avoid key missteps going forward. We need food and water to survive; whereas, sex is an extra. Houston puts it this way, "Sex is a wonderful blessing from God intended to bring a husband and a wife closer together ..."
Do we just use will power to overcome the bondage of porn? No, you have to replace the bad with the good. Houston talks about an empty glass - the way to get the air out of the glass is to fill it with water (cf. Phil 4:8,9).
Idolatry of the female figure actually breaks all of the Ten Commandments in one way or another (Mt. 5:28). The story of the skylark is worth the price of the book - porn sickness is like plucking out our own feathers to trade for worms. Recovery is possible, but it takes loving friends, intense work and inspired discipline. Get the book today - find the cure.
Structured for either personal use or group discussions, this book pulls no punches. It takes this monster of a problem head on by frequently blasting the self-defeating lies that surround porn usage and contrasting them with eternal truths.
It takes light to chase out the darkness, the author points out. This book does a great job of not only shining the light and making it easy to perceive but also making it DESIRABLE!
It takes love for Jesus and love from
Jesus above all else in order beat this torturous addiction.
The last chapters in particular do a terrific job in helping the reader contrast the pathetic emptiness of an addicted lifestyle with the richness of a life of loving God and loving others.
Addicts beat themselves with enough sticks. They need genuine, worthy spiritual carrots to draw them toward God. This book understands that and wisely applies both without ever making the reader feel worthless. Hope permeates the book.
This will be a go-to resource that I regularly recommend.
