Kirk Franklin on overcoming pornography

On Oprah, earlier this month:

Kirk says he thought marriage would "fix" his obsession with pornography. "[But] that's when I started realizing how much it was an addiction." He found himself sneaking to watch videos while Tammy was sleeping and craving porn more than ever. When marriage didn't erase his feelings of loneliness, he realized the severity of his compulsion. "Then I had to accept that I had a problem," he says. ... Tammy recalls the moment her husband opened up about his addiction. "He sat me down and he said, 'Babe, I want to talk to you about a problem that I've been struggling with.' He had such sincerity in his eyes—you could tell that this pained him. For me, my immediate reaction was to just support him in it."
