In recovery we focus a lot on triggers. Avoiding them. Reducing them. Anticipating them.

But our thoughts, especially the ones that feel automatic, often prompt our behaviors.

This PFR classic episode, from Oct of 2019, is about becoming aware of our automatic thoughts and how to change them.

In this classic episode of Porn Free Radio, I share how successful guys overcome edging.

Edging is any unsound activity that mimics our old patterns with porn. It's one of main habits that blocks long-term recovery and success. 

And chances are if you don’t know what it is, you’re probably doing it.

Coach Jay Pyatt, from The Couple Cure, returns to Porn Free Radio for a discussion about lying.

Matt has often said that lying was the "second addiction" he had to recover from. The habits around lying, hiding, keeping secrets, omission, and minimizing were just as strong as the porn was.

Our long-term recovery depends on us building the skills of honesty.

Guys often see relapse as an event where a bottom-line behavior in engaged in. In this scenario recovery is measured by the absence of relapse events.

It's more helpful to see relapse as a state that we can easily enter in and out of based on our thoughts and actions. It's full of hiding, unsound activities, and unhealthy living.
