It’s important to remember that when you are first trying to shift behavior, when you’re first making a big change, it takes major disruption. It takes major effort to make those shifts.Adam Moore
When searching for a solution to overcome pornography, try looking at the big picture and expect the process to take time. This week Creed and Crishelle explored this idea with Dr. Adam Moore as they discussed how approaching recovery from both the perspective of a symptom and a problem can offer the boost for lasting change.
In this episode:
- Recovery is complicated and there is not a one-size-fits-all solution.
- Anything that matters is worth putting effort into.
- Oversimplifying addiction recovery is detrimental to those experiencing it.
- Getting feedback from a therapist or family member can give you better insight on your progress.
