My name is H_A and I would consider myself a recovering porn addict. The reason why I’ve chosen this nickname is because I always felt that I was a smart, ambitious person and that it’s also the person that I want to focus myself on becoming (so no it’s not because of narcissism that I’ve chosen this nickname). Off course years of porn addiction have made me doubt my ability to be smart, live life and wonder who I am. This group reflects my and other people’s search for this truth. I’ll be working mostly with the lessons from recovery nation, so it would be great if you follow that program as well. With this group I want to create a safe place for people so that we can give each other support. Personally I’m not really a fan of journaling since I find it to be too impersonal. Therefore I’m willing to engage in weekly or 2-weekly skype meetings. That way, we can really have some form of human contact and we can really share with each other our burdens and our doubts. If you’ve ever felt that other people have difficulty relating to you when it comes to this stuff, then you’ll know the value of being understood. I’ve been at this forum for quite some time, but it has only been after I started tackling my life proactively, that I started to see results. I’m still not 100% cured of this addiction, but my mood has already been more stable and my shift in attitude has already been night and day. Which has also been confirmed by my parents. Off course, no group without some rules which are the following: 1) We keep a focus on beating this proactively. It’s okay to complain that this stuff is difficult, but we want to keep the focus on improving our life’s as much as possible. 2) If you relapse it’s okay. I really don’t want to create a climate where people beat themselves up for relapsing. You know there are so many variables involved in a relapse: did you watched the same stuff? How long did it lasted? How difficult was the chaser? Etc. That I feel it really hurts guys to be so negative about this. 3) We’re a supportive community and we act that way, it’s not a competition. At the end of the day the goal is that you are happy with your life. This should always remain our focus and not impressing somebody else. I’m more interested in keeping the group small and create a community that’s strongly tied together instead of creating a large group which consists of several smaller groups. Therefore I decided to keep the maximum number at 5. Off course suggestions are always welcome, but if you recognize yourself in the need for emotional support or if you’ve ever been dying to get something off your chest but couldn’t, then feel free to join this group.
