Kirk Franklin

Kirk says he has worked hard to overcome his addiction. People in his church community, he says, helped him find fulfillment in his music and faith. "They sat down and showed me, 'This is why you sing about what you sing about. It's not about your money; it's not about your car—it's about your heart. It's about your character.' Then I started seeing myself the way that God saw me."

After years of "feeling like a hypocrite," Kirk now considers himself free of his addiction. His relapses became fewer and farther between, and now, with the support of his wife, he says he's been "clean" for more than five years.

But, in millions of households across the country, people still struggle with a serious addiction to pornography.
