Where Do I Start? How to Navigate this Addiction Recovery Website

LDS pornography how to help husband addictionIf you’re reading this, the odds are pretty good that you’re either an addict yourself or you’re married to one. People who show up at this site are often pretty beaten down. Sex and pornography addiction is confusing and overwhelming. There’s so much material here and elsewhere! You may wonder where to start. We can help.

Hands down, the most popular essays on the site are A Letter to LDS Wives About Pornography and The ABCs of Pornography Addiction. If you read nothing else, I urge you to read those two pieces. A Letter to the Wives explains clearly and simply what LDS porn addicts and their spouses are up against. The ABCs talks about why some men successfully overcome porn addiction but most don’t. It spells out the Addiction Recovery Relationship so that everyone can be on the same page about what needs to happen for recovery to truly happen.

If you read those two essays, you’ll know what you’re up against. Once you’ve read both, you may want to take a look at Sitting in a Rowboat Throwing Marbles at a Battleship (a personal story of recovery from sex and pornography addiction), Muck Fires in My Brain (why merely stopping the porn binging isn’t enough), and finally The Silent Seventy Percent (understanding the pornography crisis among the Latter-day Saints as it really is). We know it’s a lot of reading. Still, it’s readable, it’s interesting and it may save your life or your marriage. How’s that for some incentive to keep reading? Recovery is possible!
