Pornography: The Top Three Lessons from the Loss of Porn Addiction

Grief may be joy misunderstood;

Only the Good discerns the good.

–Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Have you noticed yet that giving up your porn addiction you felt a loss?

I remembered a time when I deleted all porn sites from my favorites’ list.

The feelings were similar to grieving for a dead friend, especially, one that comforted me whenever I needed it.  From time to time I shed tears.

The only problem was that when I buried my friend, he was still alive.  I didn’t even lock him in a coffin and vault. He resurrected back into my life.

I went through 40 years of mixed feelings for pornography; dying and living.

In 2014, I was able to stay sober the entire year with only two minor slips (measured in seconds).

Now, I have a new friend, freedom.

From time to time, I shed tears for this feeling.

Three Lessons of Losing an Addiction (a Haiku Poem)

Grieve the loss of porn;

Resurrecting it once more;

Grief joy understood.

Meditation

Psalm 20:1, 2

The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;

Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; (King James Version, public domain)

Thanks,

Dale
