    Porn Addiction and Recovery Joshua Shea

    Porn Addiction and Recovery Joshua Shea

    It can be a difficult time admitting you’re a drug addict or alcoholic, but when it comes to pornography addiction, the pain and feeling of betrayal can hit the addict’s partner worse than the addict himself. Those feelings can be amplified when the pornography addict won’t admit his problem, leaving a partner feeling like there is nothing she can do and nowhere to turn.

    While the elite scientists and academics waste time trying to perfectly define pornography addiction, the condition has spread like wildfire throughout the world as access to porn takes little more than a click of the mouse or pulling a telephone out of one’s pocket.

    Upon learning – with or without her partner’s knowledge – about a husband’s or boyfriend’s addiction, negative feelings and difficult questions usually come rushing into a woman’s life:

    • Does he look at this stuff because I’m not enough?
    • Was he like this when I first met him?
    • Is this God trying to test me?
    • What kind of help is available for him?
    • Am I just supposed to stay here and deal with this?

    A sense of loss, betrayal, sadness and anger is completely normal, but there are difficult questions to answer and a rocky road ahead. The good news is that there are plenty of people who have been through this and their relationship not only survived, but it eventually thrived.
    So where is a woman to turn when facing the revelation their partner is a pornography addict? Friends and family? They can offer moral support but likely have neither the experience nor the expertise to lend real help to the situation.

This is health.  We talk recovery with Kimiko Karpoff, a energy healing practitioner.  She helps people attain balance by supporting them to activate their body's natural healing energies.

    What does that mean, and how does it work?

    For over ten years she studied in Healing Pathway, Quantum Touch and with many mentors she has built on the innate capacity that she sensed in her childhood and youth.

    She works with groups and offers personal sessions as well as workshops.

    Healing Workshops

    Learn about here workshop - Resilience: the capacity to manage through life's obstacles and challenges, and even to thrive.

    When our energies are flowing smoothly, all is well. And when all is well, our energies tend to flow well. But stress, injuries, emotional wounds and anxieties can all impact the energy flow.  Blocked energy can create pain and more anxiety.
