I suffered for almost 10 years with my porn and sex addiction, which led to a heavy use of drugs such as Marijana, Cocaine and alcohol. I would watch porn up to 12 times a day on a bad day, which affected my own business, my self esteem and happiness. I would tell people I was doing great, but behind close doors I was crying and seeking help. For me I was getting to the point that I told myself: if you can’t stop I will just have to kill myself at some point. It took therapy sessions , NLP sessions talking to good friends and reading books about addiction but what really worked for me is the drastic measures I took: At the age of 39, I decided to leave the UK and back home to France to give myself the best chance to succeed and change my bad habits. Changing my environment, moving back to my to France to my mum and working every day at doing less and less really worked for me. I was committed for change, and I stopped judging myself when I failed some days. In the first edition of my Podcast the Dider Show I share my struggles and how I changed for the better. I would like to invite you to listen, because I thought I was totally lost and I would never overcome my porn addiction. But I did, and it took less time than I thought, so I want to tell you guys out there that there is hope for you too if you are currently struggling with the compulsive behaviour that touches so many people that are too ashamed to reach out and seek help. What about masturbation habits: how many times, most men do it once a day, sometimes 3 times a day. Start, where does it come from? How it crip on me, what damage it caused in my life. What other bad habits came with it. How it became impossible to concentrate, function, created my own prison. The changes I made in the end. Seeking advice, don’t judge yourself too hard. Happy ending, change of environment. Stay busy, there is hope, you can do it and change your bad habits and adopt new good one Books i recommend: Out of shadows, Patrick Carnes Breaking the cycle, George Collins MA, and Andrew adleman MA Always turned on by Robert Weiss and jennifer p.
