To Help All Couples Understand and Deal with Pornography in Their Relationship
While general society does not seem willing to acknowledge the harmful effects of pornography on individuals and families, those of us who face pornography habits and addictions know first-hand how dangerous it really is. We no longer need to be convinced that pornography might damage us. We know it does. We know it hurts because we have lived it. We have felt the distracting pull and downward spiral, the guilt and shame, the agony of repeated defeat. We have seen the antagonized look of betrayal in our spouse's eyes. And, having faced pornography, having felt its destructive pull, we are more committed than ever to fighting it.
Pornography affects people from every corner of society and every walk of life. We are fathers, sons, wives, daughters, and grandparents. We are students, lawyers, homemakers, farmers, doctors, businessmen, teachers, technicians, construction workers, and business owners. All in the same boat, facing the same scourge. Pornography addiction doesn't care who we are or where we came from. We are all susceptible. Any of us can fall to it. So many of us have. But that is not the end of our stories. Addiction does not mean we have lost. Addiction is merely one more battle of life. A hard battle, yes. But a winnable one.
Couples Against Pornography is a group dedicated to supporting each other through the difficulties of pornography addiction. We need role models and positive examples. We need success stories and motivators. We need shoulders to lean on and hands to pick us up out of the dirt. We need to know there are other couples out there fighting pornography every day. We need to know there are couples out there who, over the heartache and tears, are committed to overcoming pornography and its harmful effects. That there are couples out there who, though facing the heartbreaking effects of addiction, are still committed to each other and a strong future together.
We at Couples Against Pornography are here to provide support, encouragement, and optimism to all couples, but especially those fighting pornography addiction. Addicts need advice from other addicts. Spouses need advice from other spouses. Couples need other couples. We can help each other. Inspire each other. Motivate each other. We are in this fight together. And we will succeed together. We hope you will join us.
