A blonde asked the salesman at Best Buy how much the TV that she was admiring would cost. “I don’t serve blondes,” the salesman replied.
She returned the next day, having dyed her hair red, and asked the same clerk the same question. “I don’t serve blondes,” the man answered.
The next day, the blonde came back, this time wearing a brunette wig. “How much is that TV?” she asked the same salesman. Again, he repeated, “I don’t serve blondes.”
The woman was stumped. “How can you tell that I’m a blonde?” she asked.
“Because that thing you keep calling a TV is a microwave.”
One of the problems many of us have is that when we consider our porn habit, we don’t know what we’re looking at. After binging on porn, some call it a “struggle.” Many say they can stop at any time. Some call it a “bad choice” or “momentary lapse” [or “habitual sin.”]
May I suggest that calling a microwave a television doesn’t make it one. And calling an addiction anything less will only delay the hard work of getting well.
Recovery Step: The Bible warns against “lying lips” (Psalm 120:2). Say it with me: “I have an addiction.”
