We get asked a lot about how to tell if you or a loved one is addicted to pornography. We even came up with a Self-Test so individuals can assess the severity of their behaviors. We decided to also make up an infographic that is a little more shareable. Let us know what you think, share it with your friends, and we hope it helps.

Just wanted to celebrate a large breakthrough I had this morning. Lately, it seems every one of my dreams has involved pornography over the past few weeks. It only tells me that I’m close to a breakthrough as it has gotten worse before it is getting better. Every morning I awake with the intense urge to watch pornography. This morning probably had to be the biggest yet. It was one of the hardest I have ever fought to overcome and I did it! Using gratitude breathing and FRC plus a little will power, I kept myself from giving in. In addition to that, I have gained some ground on taking control of my thoughts, which allows me to break up the anger I have been dealing with. Read more…

Coach-

I have wanted to change for many years. In the past I have gone over the plan in my head to get this accomplished. I slipped up over and over again because I used denial and forced restraint. FRC has been the missing tool I needed. So far, all has gone extremely well. I have not been porn and masturbation free for this long ever (at least 45 years). I am not the type of person who “waits for the other shoe to drop” but I do know that I must be on guard. The daily exercises help in that regard. Failure in the past for me was also due to not facing why I got to this point. I was molested as a child and I am gradually “unpeeling that onion” as well. I have a great wife (32 years) great kids, grand kids and other family. Read more…

My issues started when i was maybe 14-15 and came out of feelings of low self worth and being desperate to fit in and be accepted. I was very small as a teenager and didn’t grow until I was 17-18, I discovered porn and masturbation at 14 and I guess it became my drug of choice.

Coach —

I am back and I wanted to share my story. A year ago I started the Candeo program and used it for about 3 months before quiting and backsliding. Viewing pornography and masturbation are the extent of my addictions. I have never cheated on my wife and we actually have a very happy marriage. Porn for me is like comfort food – when I’m tired, stressed and exhausted I turn to porn for entertainment. I actually have no desire to be physical with anyone other than my wife. I get the same feeling after viewing porn as I do a good action movie. I realize that you are a coach and not a therapist, however, it is very theraputic for me to sit down and write this stuff out.

We thrive on research-based recovery practices and another study was recently published in the International Journal of Psychophysiology on breathing as meditation.

Had a few moments today to fall weak and walk down that road again. They where unplanned and just a surprise. As quickly as I could my focus went to where and what I needed to do.( I am in the last stages of the training material and what I listen to several times was giving the planner the avenue and opportunity to do its part.

Good morning Coach,

I’ve been really busy lately. Now that I’ve started to curb my addiction to porn I’m actually able to go out and do things I’ve wanted to do for a really long time. I’m not forced to stay near a computer anymore. It is really rewarding.

Hi Coach,
It’s been a while since i haven’t written to you but I’ve been really busy lately, anyways I am just writing to you to let you know that it has been more than 1 month since the last time I’ve slipped, i.e. since I started Candeo program. I have never been this far! I am really proud about myself! Although sometimes I am facing lot of nasty triggers and some other times failing to practice FRC, but the good thing is that I am not quitting and I am trying harder and I already started to feel much better about myself and to realize the things I was trying to burry before.
