I do these type of things on Facebook periodically, if I like the questions. Gail tagged me in the TMI tag and I was like...yeah, let's do this. Thanks Gail for thinking of me 😀 This will give you all a little, if not TMI, information into my life outside of this blog and into… Continue reading TMI
One of the hardest things I had to fight while quitting my 30 year addiction to porn was the images stuck in head. Even now, it's a struggle. Some times I believe that I received freedom from that ball and chain to only find myself stuck behind a fence with true freedom just on the… Continue reading Things Seen Cannot Be Unseen
Though written from a female’s perspective on her porn struggle…this is to vital not to share with everyone. All 12 reasons will resonate with men as well. So men, read this and share in the comments your thoughts on how this parallels with your struggle.
Parents, for the sake of your children’s future sexual experiences in marriage and simply for their self esteem talk openly and honestly about sex or they will find the lies…and believe them…in pornography.

I thought porn was just bad for me. Well, I didn’t start out thinking that. When I was first exposed to pornographic images at eight years old, I wasn’t thinking at all.

This broke my heart this morning.
I am sharing this, with permission, to say her husband’s comments are typical of an addict in denial. He’s not an addict yet he will not stop watching.

Yet, I had this compulsion to look. I scrolled down each day. Yes, he was looking at porn weekly. Porn Hub was a site I kept on running into and so was Google images. This information did not disturb me. I have come to accept the fact that these are his “go to” sites.

Late Sunday night he came home. This…

Sometimes one of the hardest things one can do is try to help another up without being pulled down with them. I've had several friends tell me stories of how they gave into temptation while trying to help a friend overcome theirs. Here they are wanting so badly to help a friend in need get… Continue reading Watch Yourself Or You Also May Be Tempted
The first time I heard this song I bawled my eyes out. I actually pulled over to the side of the road as I just could not concentrate. The lyrics just hit me in the gut. I am an ex-porn addict that started way too young. Be careful little eyes what you see. It's the… Continue reading It’s a Slow Fade
