Why I want a companion -
I’ve been using pornography since I was 12 years old. I have kept my habit a secret from my wife for almost a decade. My lack of attention to her destroyed her self confidence and self image over that time, and for that I will never be able to forgive myself.
I finally admitted to her what I have been doing, and after much deliberation (and me telling her she would probably be better off leaving me as I feel I have been such a monster) she is giving me one chance to deal with my problem. Frankly I don’t deserve it, but I am going to make this chance count.
We have enrolled in couples therapy, I have also personally enrolled in hypnotherapy sessions and am booked in to see a sex addiction therapist.
My habit used to be much more frequent, but it’s started to simmer down to 1,2, or 3 times per week. The urge always seems to hover on the periphery of my consciousness, waiting for my guard to drop. I am hoping that therapy will teach me how to identify triggering emotions and thoughts, and rewire them to trigger more positive behaviours.
I have been looking at the 12 step system and it is very religion oriented. Can it be adapted to a non-religious perspective?
I’m looking for fellow agnostics or atheists to pair up with for accountability, advice, and progress sharing.
