  • @newpornaddictgf... Welcome to the community and thanks for sharing with us. I'm sorry you're having to deal with your partner's porn addiction. To be perfectly honest, this isn't my area of expertise, but I'm hoping @JoshuaShea will weigh in on your post. He is a recovering porn addict himself, and super knowledgable about it.

    I'm sending you lots of positive energy and hope. Please know that you can come and share here anytime.
  • @DeanD We've started a private dialogue away from here....so don't want anyone to think I'm abandoning this person. Just trying to stick a little bit to my plan to focus on https://PornAddictCounseling.org

  • @newpornaddictgf ; I just learned my "perfect" husband of 15 years has been dealing with this on and off since before we met. He seems to be fine if he's feeling emotionally safe regardless of sex frequency (but erroneously ties sex to emotional safety) but somewhere along the way he convinced himself I was having an online (emotional) affair and he was pulled into his behaviors more and more until he crossed the line with another woman. My own personal understanding of the "demon lust" is that is it tremendously powerful and will destroy lives unless it's targets are firmly grounded. I hope, for your own sake that you remain guarded, alert and insist he gets help. I wish I had known 15 years ago what I know now.
  • @JustFixIt hey there. so sorry you're having to go through this. i am sure it's not easy. thank you for reaching out here. i'm not personally familiar with this topic, but others here are... just know this is a safe place to share and you're not alone....
  • Thank you Dominica. I am looking to read the thoughts of addicts to help me truly understand what my husband is going through. Or what he went through.
