    Someone who understands
    Hi All,
    Welcome to our forum where we aim to give support and advice, not just to people with addiction, but to partners as well.  We understand how totally devastating it is to discover your partner is addicted to sex or pornography.  The shock can feel almost completely overwhelming.  Please do use these boards as a source of support.  As well as responding to others, our moderators and therapist team are also here to help you.

    It works!!
    I thought I'd start this thread off with some feedback from one of our recent intensives. 
    "Having struggled with this addiction for over 20 years, I now for the first time feel confident that recovery is possible. Previous counselling and support, both professional and non-professional, hasn't enabled me to understand the causes of this addiction or provided time with the tools I need to recover. This time it feels completely different - a complete change in my understanding which I know will lead to a complete change in my life"
