You know, I watch a lot of stuff on Netflix. I’m kind of an amateur film critic. I don’t know why, maybe it’s just my curiosity. I like to see what’s new, what’s good, and what’s not.
Last week I watched Chris Rock’s new comedy special.
And yes, it might not be for you, especially if you are sensitive to some language and stuff.
But it was solid.
Especially when he started talking about his struggle with porn and the eventual breakup of his marriage.
“I was not a good husband. I was ******-up. I was addicted to porn. I know, billion-dollar industry, just me, right? I was addicted to porn and, you know, I was 15 minutes late everywhere. When you watch too much porn, you know what happens? Here’s what happens. You become sexually autistic. You develop sexual autism. You have a hard time with eye contact and verbal cues.”
“What happens when you watch too much porn is you get desensitized. When you start watching porn, any porn’ll do. ‘Ah, they’re naked. Woo-hoo.’ Then, later on, you’re all ******-up. And you need is a perfect porn cocktail to get you off.”
Funny how Chris Rock sees the danger of porn and is able to connect it with the failure in his marriage but so many others can’t make that connection?
Don’t make the same mistake Chris made.
Don’t wait until it’s too late.
I want to give you a place to start so you don’t end up with the same mess he did.
“Wait, a small group? Why would I do that? Why would that help? And what the heck are you even talking about?”
Look. It’s simple.
One of the reasons people have such a hard time dealing with their porn use is because they feel alone, or they are trying to do recovery on their own.
That doesn’t work.
You need people. You need others to help you along the way. You need a community where you are accepted, warts and all. A safe place to heal and work through your struggles.
Every week of every month we have hundreds of men and women who meet in our online small groups and pursue recovery and freedom. People who are there for each other, week in and week out, via a weekly group video chat.
You should give it a try. You won’t believe the difference it will make in your life.
