Porn addiction does not only affect the addicted. It creates a shockwave that impacts all of their relationships, especially those closest to them. This shock can be very hard to handle, and often, is traumatic for the people who love and care for someone struggling with a porn addiction. Parents, friends, and family will all feel the fallout and pain for their loved one, but no one will be affected more than spouses and partners.
Because porn addiction is such a new issue and has only really been around for the last few decades or from the dawn of the internet, we are constantly learning more about it. Most resources are dedicated to helping addicts, and often are only targeted toward men. The fact is, porn is not a picky. Anyone can be affected by it, either as an addict or because you are close to one. The good news is there are finally some materials and programs designed specifically to support the partners of porn addicts.
Although this program is not affiliated with Fortify, we are happy and excited to promote it.
