In this episode, we continue with our successful guys series by discussing shame. 

C.G. Jung called shame a "soul eating emotion.” It's the corrosive state where our failure and flaws come to define us. Where we see ourselves as broken and unable to change.

After a relapse have you ever wondered. "why did I do that?"

Regardless of who we are we are all driven to meet six human needs.

The first four needs show up commonly in our relapses and struggles. The last two needs emerge in our healthy recovery.

Have you ever thought, "Man, I'm hopeless..." Or "I'm not good with self-discipline..." Or when it comes to recovery, "If I can't do this perfect... I can't do it..."

Maybe you have the thought that your brain is broken or the devil is out to get you. Or maybe deep down, you wonder, "If people really knew me they would be disgusted."

If you have had those thoughts, you may have a B.S. problem. And here's the hard truth... you will never be porn free until you deal with your B.S.

On today's episode, we talk all about... your B.S.

With the podcast's emphasis on personal responsibility, it's easy to think the goal of recovery work is self-reliance. That in order to be strong we need to become emotionally self-reliant.

But this undermines our recovery work and delays emotional healing.

In this episode, I discuss the true goal of recovery.

It's Wednesday!

On today's episode, I share Dave's 5 mistaken beliefs about porn. Dave was featured in PFR 138 when he reached the 2-year porn free milestone.

Earlier this week, he shared 5 mistaken beliefs he had with porn. I asked for his permission to share them with you now.

1.) The next change in my life will make it easier to quit porn.
2.) Porn compliments my sex life.
3.) Porn is a reward. It's "me time."
4.) Porn is a break from work. It's "a mind shot."
5.) Subscribing to porn sites is more efficient.
