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
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.

One day Jesus was in the temple teaching when all of a sudden a group of scribes… Continue reading Do We Cheer Or Condemn With Our Words And Actions?
Dear addict, I understand wanting to keep the "secret" within the confounds of your marriage. You don't want anyone to know about it..I get it. But, please do not put that stress on your spouse.
