So many have this problem Alexander,so do not feel you are alone here. After a while it almost feels that it is a need rather then a bother. At your young age I know it must be very tough! It used to be a temptation,now it is like a need,and that makes one feel even worse,as they see no way out. BUT!!! There is a way out!!!

Paul knew the many problem which can come into our head, and here is what he wrote about this.( 2Cor 10:1-8) This my good brother refers back for us to have the need of self control.( 1 Cor 9:23-27) verse 27!! No one needs to shame you,for who among us is without fault? No stones in my pocket bro!! What this is in reality is coveting. We walk and use our eyes everyday,and we see what we need and want,but cannot have,and so we go to take out the burning in some other fashion.

The more one entertains this thought in ones head,the more likely you are to preform the action associated with it. And so we need self!!! control!!! Instead of giving your flesh what it wants,give what your Spirit needs instead,read the Bible,anything in it,to take your mind off of your flesh,this takes practice bro!! It took me a while to get the hang of it,but I hate my flesh,and I will not have it ruling my mindset anymore!!

That is the mindset to have bro!! The Lord knows your heart,and he loves us in spite of our lacks. To help you consider this peace which God gave me,and many others.( Phil 4:7-9) Feed Holy Spirit in you rather then the flesh.Notice it takes practice!! verse 9! But you will win in the end,IF!!!! you stay in practice rather then giving in. The Love of Jesus be with you always brother!! My this help you in our race to win in Jesus Word and name!! NEVER give up!!! NEVER quit!! We are here to pick up each other so that we all can win this race together!! AND!!!! WE WILL!!! Period! Blessing!

What Christians will not do, however, is engage in repeated or habitual sin (1 John 3:6). One who engages in deliberate and habitual sin is simply proving that he does not know Christ and therefore cannot be abiding in Him even though he may live his life under the vast umbrella of religion and is thought, therefore, by many to be a Christian.

As believers mature in their faith, they will exhibit more and more evidence of their true Christian nature, such as their love for God, repentance from sin, separation from the world, spiritual growth, and obedient living. As Paul told the Romans, the genuine child of God has been set free from sin and has become a slave to God, and the result is eternal life (Romans 6:22).

I once had this problem too. What I did is to stop thinking on it when I had the desire. Try thinking in something aside from porn. For example, in music you like, unless its sexual, in your favourite car, in a beautiful landscape. Or better, read the Bible with attention to expel the demons tempting you. Good done, persevere! End porn!

I have the "not so polite answer". Mods - go ahead and delete it if you like.

Imagine how you would feel if the woman in those images was your future wife, and she was participating in it. Or even a close friend or realitive, perhaps even your future daughter. If you wouldn't want any of them participating in porn, it will greatly change your perspective on the topic.

One quote that changed the whole idea of the way I viewed women (and I would write this down somewhere to keep an eye on)

"If she's good enough to be used, she's good enough to be loved".

Christian of course have varying lines of personal struggles with particular sins even though they are a Christian.Paul even mentioned about the struggle at times with not doing the things he really wants to do but doing the things he does't want to do.
Hebrews 12:1 "talks about throwing off the sin that so easily entangles..."1 John talks about the fact that anyone born of God will not continue to sin...they cannot go on sinning be sure Gods seed remains in them'
Yet the bible says 'John 1:8' that if we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us...and goes on to mention about us confessing our sins...'.
There are areas of our lives where we may struggle to overcome something that has entangled us...some it could be gossiping,another it could be bitterness from being deeply hurt by another,another it could be porn,another it could be an inappropriate sexual fetish they have and struggle to keep their marital bed pure sexually with their Christian spouse.
Many Christians struggle with porn and just because they are struggling with such habitual sins does mean they are not Christian and are not abiding with christ and that they do not know him.Infact it's often that its because they know him are abiding in him that they wanna be free in the 1st place.
The context about a Christian not continuing to sin is meaning just that...A Christian can struggle with a habitual sin yet dont want to stay in that sin and genuinely wants a way out..some it can take months or even longer to finally get the victory with Gods help.Often certain habitual sins have roots in their childhood...or rooted in rejection,loneliness,past hurts ect and it can take time with Gods help to be free.
Some porn addictions can be the same as comfort eating for some and for others the root is a deep craving for intimacy...other it's something else.
Talking from my own experience I can identify with the OP and yet in those times I was a Christian seeking to live for christ.
