Owning your recovery - Tim’s story - Episode 140

Today I am joined by Tim, a fellow marriage and family therapist, who shares his story of pornography addiction and his recent road to recovery. He shares the tools and resources that he has used to break cycles, stay accountable to himself, and move forward on a path of healing. In this episode we cover:

  • Tim’s story with multiple crossroads
  • The word “addict” and how it can be shameful
  • Recovery vs. sobriety
  • Inner peace/connectedness
  • Becoming authentic vs. white knuckling
  • Being in recovery for YOU
  • If you are hiding things from your spouse, it will come out
  • You are not alone
