10 Warning Signals

  • Porn addicts pursue illegal activities that result in an arrest.
  • Porn addicts develop a routine in finding sexual partners risking venereal disease.
  • Starting with porn and becoming sex addicts, many addicts experience near-death consequences.
  • Viewing, listening, and masturbating to porn cause addicts to replicate that seen, heard, and physically felt from view porn videos. However, AIDS becomes with real-time reward for “acting out.”
  • Many porn users eventually find it difficult to hide what is done in secret. In public, roaming eyes, flirtations, and secret romances cause the sex addict to lose a spouse or partner.
  • Many porn users continuously use pornography to exhaustion or physical injury.
  • Many sex addicts trace back to their pornography usage.  Discovery led to loss.  Many times, losing rights to their children and even breaking ties with family.
  • Women developing sexual addiction from pornography report grief over abortions and unwanted pregnancies.
  • Pornography overwhelm users with sexual addiction.  Many sex addicts experience extreme losses in productivity on the job, threatening careers.

Pondering Relief and Freedom

After reading this post, you are ready for change, aren’t you?

You know what’s best for you; you experience it in your gut.

The 10 warning signals are for your use in overcoming pornography.  However, changing is a matter of a must-do-it mindset.

Feel the pain; make a change.  Continually work on your recovery.  Addiction did not come overnight and so healing does not come immediately either.

Once you start feeling better from the change, your soul hungers to have your human needs met: certainty, importance, caring, growth, and contribution.

Find a therapists to help you discover those needs.

Go to a support-group meeting, perhaps, a 12-step program.

Thank you,

Dale Criswell

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.
