  1. Hi Dews, Thank you for your post. It does seem like a long and exhausting experience for you, having to deal with this contact of your partner. Maybe you could ask your self " what is the positive benefit for me to keep track of her activity on social media"? Also be aware of what has being going on for you during the day just before you feel the need to check up on her? Is ytour partner aware of your need to check up on this girl? I hope this helps.
  2. Did you know that we run an 8-week recovery course to treat people struggling with problematic porn use? Our online group treatment programme has been developed specifically to help men struggling with compulsive pornography use, often referred to as pornography addiction. The course is conducted online using the Zoom video conferencing platform zoom.us and provides practical information and resources for stopping porn and developing long term relapse prevention strategies. The programme is both educational and practical and utilises both Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and psycho-educational strategies. The programme also provides a supportive online group environment to help overcome feelings of embarrassment and isolation and to facilitate a long-term accountability network. By the end of the course, attendees will be able to: • Understand the biological and psychological causes of their addiction • Recognise and manage triggers • Establish relapse prevention strategies to secure and maintain recovery • Identify and overcome potential future blocks to recovery • Develop long term strategies for re-establishing a positive sexual lifestyle The course consists of 8 x 1.5-hour sessions and between session preparatory work. Attendance at each of the sessions is required and the course is strictly limited to a maximum of 6 men. All attendees are required to sign a confidentiality statement to ensure the group is a safe space for all. Details of how to register can be found on our website: 8-Week Online Recovery Course

  5. Episode 2 of the BBC3 series Porn Laid Bare Touring porn sets in Spain the group have seen what the adult film industry means for producers and performers – good and bad - but now it’s time to reflect on themselves and consider the impact that porn is having on their life, their relationships, and on wider society. The group explore questions including how porn effects the brain, how it shapes our views of our own and others’ bodies, how it shapes societal attitudes towards racial groups, women and our understanding of sexuality, and asks if porn addiction is becoming a problem amongst heavy users. .
  6. Hi Kate, Its always a scary place to be right now but you seem to be dealing with it really well. It looks like you are doing whats best for YOU right now and at the same time your husband is going to work on his recovery and deal with his behaviour. The fact that you are both taking this 1 step at a time and are hopeful for the future can only be a positive thing. Stay strong and see how things go. Enjoy your holiday!
