My boyfriend has been clean for two months now and our relationship has improved tremendously! He’s like a whole new person. I’ve never felt so loved and attractive. All of his good qualities shine through. He seems more alert and aware of things. He’s even been more organized and able to remember things he’d normally forget. I truly see the difference. He’s just happier. And happier to be around me. It’s like now that he doesn’t watch porn he finds me more attractive. We’ve both been in therapy and doing couples sessions over the past few months and since he’s gotten clean it seems to be easier for him to really take mine and his mental health more seriously. We don’t fight half as much as we used to and when we do, he’s very quick to calm down and talk it out. We’re just all around happier. I’m not sure if this is helpful, or could maybe be an encouragement to someone struggling, but I just had to share with people who would understand.
