It has been a while. I have been seeing a Therapist and a psychiatrist for over a year and a half about my trama and the porn addiction and I know I have come along way, I have a good foundation I believe,I have opened up more to my partner I believe i have told her everything about my porn habits. I say believe because there maybe something I haven't remembered but if so as soon as I do I will tell her, I feel a lot better about that I also know she will have her doubts about my honesty but I caused that only i can fix it. I also know that when i speak with her and tell her my true feelings especially about my feelings toward her she has doubt hopefully in time she will see. It can get frustrating when I say and mean she is everything and is my life, And to me know a real beauty is better than any fake or fantasy, I have torn down some walls with a lot of help,and the only thing that matters is the foundation i stand on and my partner is and was still there. she is the real beauty, I actually at one point thought with bits and pieces I got from here and PA I could do it myself tough it out so to speak but the darker root had to be worked on not covered up I could not to many thoughts kept at me with the help I have received I have worked on and put those behind me, Attitude towards women have changed,

DG great to hear that you are improving with time and effort

that is a fact that many deny, at least at the beginning, but it is a fact non the less

when we realise this and accept it , then we also realise that we do have choice
we are not bound by addiction and it only holds us because we allow it to
so glad that you raised this fundamental point
keep recovering it makes so much sense :g:
as you say it
