It’s important to take a moment before I dive into this list. I could not have experienced the freedom I have without God. Without him, all of these steps would get me a partial freedom. This would look something like a work release from prison and it’s quite common with porn addiction. Plenty of guys talk about experiencing long seasons of freedom before falling back into the muck and mire. Partial freedom happens because we change habits and brain chemistry…

Have you ever tried to cut something with a dull blade? It never tends to go well for me. All of my attempts end in lackluster results, frustration, or defeat. I’ve experienced a similar problem when it comes to my conscience. It’s something which is supposed to help me cut through sticky situations.

No matter how bad things get, I promise that there is hope. Thankfully, I have a little more space in the blog to explain…

The other day I was talking to one of the guys about dating, always an interesting topic, and he pointed out a subtle problem with how I had approached dating in the last couple months. We politely debated the point for a couple of minutes and then after a few moments pause I just said “I know you’re right, but I hate it”.
