While a darkness can mask this hope to anyone involved in such an addiction, there IS hope. A recovery from an addiction to pornography is possible! Occasionally hopelessness can lead to an apathetic attitude and even serve to cause the one with the addiction to conclude that there’s nothing wrong with their behavior, changing at times prior to values and beliefs that didn’t accept this kind of behavior.
Apathy is hard to combat; however, even the skeptic can come to understand a greater picture of what life has in store for those who learn to “bridle their passions.” While pornography use, most often accompanied by masturbation, can become the default solution to many of life’s situations in which we feel boredom, loneliness, stress, anger, tiredness, hunger, fear and other emotions, if there is a sense that there’s a better way within the mind of awareness of the so-called addict then there’s enough to provide a foundation to begin a successful recovery.
Because there’s a tendency within many to not be pushed or forced to do things one addicted to porn often has to recognize this feeling this whispering from within. If they take a moment to consider this they’ll often understand that there IS a way to life that generates greater happiness. When any bitterness or resistance is let go of the process can begin to flourish.
Recovery is a process. It’s learning how to think, how to act and how to feel in order to have a healthy and rewarding lifestyle. Recovery is also going to involve at some point learning how to connect with others in meaningful ways. This doesn’t mean that you need to become a social butterfly, simply that the relationships you do have take on new life and become stranger and powerfully beneficial.
Recovery is most often effective when it’s part of a structured plan that can be engaged in on a daily basis. Consistency is a necessity to changing behavior.
