When we feel rejected we think, "Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody."

Rejection is a huge trigger and can be an obstacle to healthy recovery.

It keeps us isolated and alone.

On this episode of Porn Free Radio, I open up my inbox and answer your questions:

Should I get rid of anything that triggers me? If you’ve gone porn free for a few years before you get married do you have to tell your spouse about it? How much do I need to tell my wife after a slip? How do I help my (ex)boyfriend? What if I am addicted to something more addicting than porn alone? Help! I’m not sure what’s wrong with me… AND MORE.

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.

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.

On this episode of Pornfree Radio we discuss a topic we've never discussed before: Purity. An unlikely subject for a podcast devoted to skipping Christian cliches about pornography and lust.

And yet I was compelled to share because of amazing interview I heard with Christopher West on the Integrity Restored podcast, episode 56.

You may re-think your definition of "Purity" when you hear this episode.

Have you ever had something good happen in your life? A promotion? A birthday party? A big win? Then you looked at porn and everything came crashing down.

Maybe you got to a BIG recovery milestone like 30-days porn free. Only to look at porn again on day 31.

Or you maybe relapsed, got current with your wife and accountability group. Reset. Felt stable. Then inexplicably relapsed the very next day.

You may have an "Upper Limit Problem."

In this episode, you learn:

- What an Upper Limit Problem is
- How it affects recovery
- What are the mistaken beliefs it is built on
- How to get past it

You'll also learn 2 awesome tips from the guys in REV Group Coaching. Plus I weigh in on Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo hashtag phenomenon.

Hugh Hefner was a callous, con man. He created the myth of “the playboy.” A rich man, who lived in his pajamas, worshipped by beautiful women. He sold his myth like Phillip Morris sold the Marlboro Man.

It was sex without consequences. Where women give without taking and never grow old. And we bought into it one masturbation session at a time. 

In this episode, I discuss his legacy and the "obviously wicked and destructive things" he left behind.

On a recent writer's retreat I challenged myself to:

Capture the steps to being porn free (the actual steps)
Design a system that doesn't fail
Create a plan, that if followed, could work for anybody
In the first of 2 episodes, I share my journey discovering the The Porn Free Plan That Never Fails. I share the first two steps and explain why it took 11 years for me to go from step 1 to step 2.

It's 5 steps in all.

Part 2 is found in episode 128 and it contains the last 3 steps.

Enjoy.

On Friday night, we had to answer 3 questions before the other men. I present the 3 questions for you now. Use these, this week, to lock in and focus your recovery.

We've all been there. Whether it's at the mall, the grocery store, or even at church, we have these nagging lustful thoughts that come out of nowhere.

Because of our history of porn use, we seem wired to sexualize people in our path.

We discuss real strategies you can use to deal with this pattern and find freedom.

This pattern of avoidance could be fueling your porn addiction and at the same time thwarting your recovery.

But I also have some really good news...

Continuing our Back 2 Basics series, we review the tool of F.A.S.T.T. check-ins. This structured check-in process will anchor your recovery each week and improve your success.

This check-in format comes from Dr. Milton Magness. Its original use was for sex addicts and their partners after disclosure. However F.A.S.T.T. Check-ins provide a great framework for any kind of ongoing accountability.

The components of a F.A.S.T.T. Check-in include:

- Feelings
- Activities in Recovery
- Slip Report (or Sobriety Check)
- Threats
- Tools
