For more than 40 years,  He lived two lives.

Mr. Hyde was a sex addict.

Dr. Jekyll was a loving husband who his wife thought she knew.

Jekyll valued his family,

but depression controlled Hyde.

More and more, he could not hide because he was becoming the porn addicts on his laptop.  Hyde went from soft to hardcore gratification.

The objectification of women and men started revealing the Hyde inside Jekyll.

Many women noticed Mr. Hyde’s furtive glances, but his wife saw only Dr. Jekyll.

Becoming fully disgusted with his behavior, Jekyll tried to kill Hyde.

However, Jekyll ended up in a psyche ward, but Hyde kept trying to openingly act out.

So desperately wanting help, Jekyll found a sex therapist and then went to Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA) meetings.

Taking 16 months, Hyde gradually morphed back to Dr. Jekyll.  He confessed to his wife about his battle with depression.

“Lord, I seek the peace that involves becoming an integrated human being” (Booth, 2009, p. 390).

I told my wife about my problem.  Though it was difficult to here, she still wanted to understand.

Pornography and masturbation were the effects, but depression was the cause.


Psalm 51

In the year 1971 I became a store manager at age 19. I discovered I had a gift for mentoring. I gave one on one coaching, instruction and teaching with ease. And, I loved it. However, I had a problem that held me back from achieving my full potential. I was addicted to porn. When I was going through my puberty years in life, I found pornography (adult magazines) in my Dad's closet. I was hooked. I had my ups and downs throughout my life: Ups, when I was off of porn and using my gift: and, Downs, when I was using porn. Porn captured my attention, holding me back. I found the secrets to breaking free from porn. Like anyone else, I have to work at keeping my emotions positive, every day, to stay free. Limiting emotions--fear, doubt, hate, lust, sloth, pride, any emotion that kills joy. Joy is the ultimate weapon against porn. You have it; porn loses its hold on you. I dedicate this blog to those who are looking for ways to end pornography in their life. To Your Peace, Power and Plenty, Dale P.S. The picture above is not me. The photo represents all families free from pornography.

      1. Thank you, Jane. What you just said, means a lot to me. I needed to hear your words of encouragement. I want to help people but get out of the way so they can be helped. Jane, we are doing a good work.
