Prior to the pandemic, we bought the workbooks that accompany the DVD series. The workbook is excellent for memorizing and journaling scripture which really does renew a man's mind in Christ Jesus if that man will do the work, be accountable, and make sure that he has Covenant Eyes on all electronic devices.
Recovery from porn addiction is a process orchestrated by a submitted spirit to Jesus while doing the work Dr. Roberts sets out. I could post more, but the Word really does wonders in transforming our degenerate minds that have seen way too too many images that ensnare us in an addictive cycle that only Jesus can deliver us from. Images plus masturbation to those images really is a sin against our male bodies in that our brains become addictive just like a heroin addict. MRIs of the brains of porn addicts and drug addicts look very very similar.
Healing of our brains is a process that begins with cold turkey Covenant Eyes protection and a heart devoted to recovery. Porn is idolatry and according to the Apostle Paul in Corinthians, all idolators, fornicators, adulterers are not going to be in the kingdom of Heaven. Maybe that should be preached as an incentive to forsake the wiles of the devil and start us on our journey to recovery and purity of heart.
reboot is the method you use to restart your brain. Once restarted, you can end the porn viewing habit much easier.
Like this: if porn for you is too frequent AND you want to stop... do this; (looking at porn once in a while is not addiction)
put away the phone or computer. Phone only has phone numbers. Delete ALL porn sites and social media and icons in the phone for web sites including the computer. Do reasonable chores or exercise and get outside often, shop for nothing. Be busy. Visit people. Try reading books for awhile. after 30 days, you will be in new habits and porn will not be among your daily habits.
Your new brain will see people, things, nature, colors and you will hear people talk.
Relapse is typical. Avoid pitfalls that put you into relapse. Don't lose heart in a relapse, just repeat the 30 day thing.
Porn was not a problem for me anymore when I saw her material, but I routinely watch her programming to prevent future struggles from occuring. Over the past decade, DW put on a fair bit of weight and stopped providing any visuals in our bedroom for a while, and I was grateful for Dr. Leigh's wisdom in those challenging times.
We're both on the right track now, and I'm more understanding about how to not only support DW better, but also in understanding that my sin struggles are not hers to bear directly, and vise versa.
I wish you the best and do not mind a PM if you need to chat.
