It was yesterday, and I feel I have made a great step.
I was being really stressed, and I had an argument with the woman I love. I use to get really aggressive verbally when I was under great stress, and she was unfortunately getting it right to her face, most of the time through the phone (because we are not in the same city, besides at the moment).
If you took a public poll and asked people on the street what they think about masturbation, you’d get any number of reactions—awkward and embarrassed, moral or religious declarations, psychological research references, uncertainty, enthusiastic support, and many more. When you clear away all the intense emotion and passionate debate, it appears that most people want a simple, bottom-line answer to the question—“Is masturbation good or bad?” Read more…
We get a lot of questions about what we do at Candeo and how we go about helping people overcome difficult sexual addictions. The following info-graph is our attempt to consolidate the brain science behind sexual addiction and how addictions to pornography, masturbation, and other sexual behaviors affect the brain.
Sure, I would be honored for you to share my note. I have so much respect for the thoughtful way that the founders have leveraged the power of the internet and combined it with deep content and superb production values to create such a powerful curriculum. I think Candeo represents a model for the future of what online learning and training can be.
I recently read an article by a prominent researcher who was voicing his opinion on whether or not pornography should be criminalized or not. He suggested that this decision should be based on whether or not pornography could be considered seriously harmful or not. His conclusion was that while the use of sexually explicit materials might affect some individuals or families, it was not found in any population or community to be generally harmful.
At the heart of everything we do at Candeo is the Brain Science of Change. We go to great lengths in our behavior-change training and support resources to help struggling individuals understand the brain processes behind their unwanted behaviors—how addiction circuitry forms in the brain, and how to rewire that circuitry to break free.
I just wanted to let you know that I am still making great progress in my recovery. Still no relapses, I feel so strongly about where I am now and my relationship with my wife is improving as well. We are having fun again and communicating. How truly fortunate I am and blessed to be on my road to total recovery. I have Candeo to thank for this news life, of all the times I have attempted change in my life, with your help and instruction along with my desire to change it is happening.
I would be grateful if anything I have learned would be helpful to anyone else. I have spent many years getting myself into the situation I have been in, something like 46 years and have been trying to overcome my addictions for a large part of those years only to be unsuccessful. It has only been with this program that I am having success. If my story might help others I would be only too happy to share.
My wife and I recently attended the Circus. It had been many years since I had been. I think 1962, at Madison Square Garden, I watched Ringling Brothers: Barnum and Bailey Circus. It was still pretty magical to me, even today.
I just finished the continuing forward module. I am finally done with the training portion. The program has been such a wonderful influence in my life. For so many years I have attempted to overcome my addictions and failed. To be where I am today is such a wonderful blessing in my life. Read more…
