Is Addiction is Taking Over Your Life?

You may think you have everything under control, and that you are managing life pretty well. People may find that they are successful in their work and their most important relationships appear to be untouched. No one knows about your secret...except you. However, you are worried how much longer you can keep your addiction hidden.

Many people struggling to overcome porn or sex addiction operate in hidden ways until something or someone threatens to expose their secret. A double life is revealed, and they are finally forced to make a decision. They wonder if their relationships will last when everyone discovers who they really are.

When struggling with addiction, most men are not wanting to participate in therapy until something or someone is at stake. Examples may include:

  • Loss of income
  • Fear of reputation being ruined
  • Separation/Divorce
  • Legal/Criminal Consequences
  • Loss of Family
  • Fear of an STD

You can develop the tools needed to overcome by taking action and investing in yourself . It does take work and no amount of talking about it will remove it from your life.


 

Every day is a battle. You get to decide if you are going to show up prepared to do work! I am here to help, and ready to see you through this journey.

 


Imagine how it would feel to live with peace of mind and a clear conscience. Consider what it would mean to be a man of your word and to keep the promises you have made to yourself and others. Imagine showing up every day, ready to live your best life, free of guilt and shame. It is possible.

I remember what it was like to be a slave to the computer screen and weighed down by shame. I remember how it felt to make a promise and mean it...only to blow it hours later.  This was a part of my story, and that is why I know there is hope.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE THIS WAY ANYMORE. THERE IS HOPE!

About Christopher McMullen    Verified by Psychology Today | ANEW Counseling in DFW | , Porn Addiction, Sex Addiction & Trauma Therapy | Fort Worth, TX 76107

My path into the counseling profession began with a desire to observe and a curiosity to simply understand. When I was in high school, I became increasingly interested in what motivates people to act in certain ways. I found myself filled with questions regarding the hurts, scars, and behaviors of those around me. You may have heard the familiar saying, “Hurting people hurt people.” I know this to be true, and it is part of my story. I know what it feels like to be addicted because I lived it. With every broken promise to myself and others, cycles of shame and hopelessness seemed to dominate my life. I know what it means to work through addiction, and my passion is to help others who are facing similar struggles.

I am here to help you walk through the process of healing and restoration. My desire is that you feel accepted as you are, and I am eager to begin this journey with you.
