Here are some things to keep in mind if you want your guy to get help:
-know how he really feels about it
-know if there’s hope he’ll change
-know the different recovery options (books, men’s retreats, audio programs, counseling, accountability partnerships, 12-Step groups, video series, intensive retreats, inpatient treatment programs, mentoring)
-know the success rates for the different recovery options
-know how the recovery process can sometimes go
-know what to expect once he becomes sober
If you’ve read these and still feel like there’s hope he might get better, then definitely encourage him to get help.
My husband, Jay, is a Certified Mentor, but keep in mind he’s also pretty unique because:
He can help your partner stop using porn,
he can ALSO help your guy
rebuild trust and restore your relationship.
Not many other resources do that.
(By the way… a large majority of the guys my husband is currently working with are maintaining their sobriety.) Feel free to encourage your partner to visit Jay’s website.
All the best to you in your journey.
