Question: As salam alaykum,
From the age of 15 I have been addicted to masturbation and pornography. I am married and it’s affecting my marriage and my wife.
I have tried everything: blocking porn on my mobile and computer, praying, dua… I am really suffering. I can’t lower my gaze and stop.
What can I do?
I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.
Keep repenting, keep turning back to Allah with resolve never to return to the sin, and pray the the Prayers of Need and Repentance daily: How Does One Perform The Prayer Of Need (salat al-haja)? and: Prayer of Repentance: Salat al-Tawba
Do everything you can to break the habit completely. Cancel your internet subscription, and go away with your wife somewhere, giving yourself a change of scenery and chance to renew your resolve and relationships. And take the following program: purifyyourgaze.com
And Allah alone knows best.
