If a Recovered Porn Addict could "go back in time" what would he do different?



Those of us who have been free from Porn Addiction for many years have a LOT to share about what NOT to do!!! Hind sight is 20/20 and looking back on CRAZY years of porn addiction, there is TON we would have done different IF we knew then, what we know now! For example—


- We would have let go of our SHAME and SECRECY and been open and honest a WHOLE LOT sooner! Going it ALONE only added years or even decades to our suffering!


- We would have FACED the REAL PAIN and issues that were FEEDING our addictions instead of always being distracted by the SYMPTOM of porn viewing. Porn is only a SURFACE ISSUE. Until you identify and address what DRIVES it down deep, you'll forever stay STUCK!


- We would have been more open to the REAL possibility that we could actually be FREE from porn use—PERMANENTLY! Instead, we allowed our ego-addict brains to convince us that we would NEVER actually be free, but would "take our addiction to the grave" and maybe even beyond! We saw freedom from porn as an EVENT to be achieved, as opposed to a GREAT way to live!


- We would have been far more ready and willing to DO THE WORK of porn addiction recovery as opposed to avoiding making that commitment, being lazy and making excuses. Years or decades of porn use radically REWIRES the brain and it takes consistent daily effort to return the brain to normal levels---you CANNOT be free with the brain you have today! You must learn HOW to build a different brain that no longer craves porn!


Here's a PBSE podcast where Mark and Steve talk VERY raw and real about what they would have done different during their deep addiction years--if they knew then what they know now!
