After struggling for nearly 15 years it is so refreshing to be clean for so long! I’ve never had so much confidence in myself! I went from being a Verizon wireless sales rep that wanted to kill myself to learning the trades and becoming a general contractor! My marriage has never been better and I’ve never felt so alive! Life still has its challenges but I am very excited for the future and the path I’m on!
[My wife knew about my porn use] even before we were married, but she didn’t realize the extent of my addiction
I don’t know that telling your wife every single time is healthy, at least not until you are showing a large streak of freedom from the addiction where relapse becomes less likely (I’d say at least 3 months). The other most important thing for me was having an accountability group, and when I truly got my breakthrough was when I actually reached out to my accountability partners when I was struggling instead of waiting for them to ask me.
