Hello Gents,

I have been doing a lot of introspective work as of late.

I decided to end my relationship with my girlfriend Michelle. I cannot give her what I know she deserves right now. I am not committed and dedicated to our relationship, and it's not fair to her to keep things going. Although hurt, she understands my reasons for choosing to end our romantic relationship. And I say romantic because I do believe that love in a relationship does not die. Relationships can take many forms and romantic ones are but one form. Love simply transforms into something different.

I have also been blogging quite a bit lately. I disclosed the abuse I suffered to the blogging community. A big step for me. Writing is very therapeutic. I turn up the music and I let my fingers dance wildly on the keyboard.

I have also visited MS nearly everyday. There is so much strength and compassion here. All the inspiration I will ever need can be found here. The courageous stories of men from every walk of life can evoke every human emotion in me.

I have also joined Candeo. It's an online program designed to assist in helping to overcome sexual addiction. As I have stated before, for me it's pornography and unhealthy masturbation habits. It's a paying service so I was little skeptical at first. I finally decided to join a few days ago. I like the program so far. Due to my work I do not have access to therapy of any kind (I know telemeetings exist and I am working on that currently). I figured I would give Candeo a try. It's time I work on my addiction, and stop re-victimizing myself. I am not concerned about the money. My recovery is far more important than any amount of cash.

I was wondering if anyone else had heard about the Candeo Program. Please share your thoughts and opinions. Heal well brothers.

Cheers,

Daniel

I am interested to know more about Candeo.
I am filling my fear of wanting to look at male on male
porn by feeling my feelings ( I am not gay , or bi, )
I would always look at this . But I would always be replused
by it. I dont want to watch this material.
I am in stages of recovery. I have an excellent therapist.
However, I do not own a computer for the reason I don't YET
feel safe at a computer and not invite the thought of curiosity
of what a man's penis looks like. Anyway, what has this
Candeo program (site) done for you?
I wouldn't mind getting a computer in the future but I am determined to get a computer without having porn blocked because I don't want to be afraid to feel tempted. If you
can tell me more about Candeo I really would appreciate it.
Thanks Daniel. and other guys here

Hello Sterling,

I wanted to join Candeo some time ago, but I wasn't ready to do so. I bookmarked it in my web browser for later viewing. It is a paying service, and this made me a little nervous at first.

I learned quite a bit about sexual addiction. I can say that my porn addiction as well as my unhealthy masturbation habits stem from the abuse I suffered. I guess I always knew that, but I was not ready to deal with it. Even worse, I never really acknowledged I had a problem at all.

Very recently (last year or so), I started to realize the damage my addiction was causing. Consistent porn use since the age of 7 or 8 severely distorted my view of the world. I sexualized everything around me, and this caused a lot of emotional pain. I was ready to do something about it,and I joined Candeo.

The program is based on the behavioral therapy model. You are taught that sexual addiction is very similar to drug and alcohol addiction. The program is divided into modules, each one building on the previous section. I have been using Candeo for just over a week now and I feel it is helping. You are assigned a coach who helps you along your road to recovery. There is forum much like the one here, where you can discuss anything related to your recovery.

Candeo uses a system that has been proven to rewire your brain circuitry. You will learn to face your unwanted behaviors and replace them with something healthy and lasting. Honestly, when you have access to a computer (library or friend) do a search and you will find the information you seek. I hope this helps. Heal well friend.

Cheers,

Daniel
