Nice job as usual Geoff. Sure enjoy reading your column, it always leaves me feeling better.
What great advice! Fear and panic only increase the obsession. Stay calm and focus on the positive things about this person that have nothing to do with sexuality.
It takes more than 2 months off porn for the effects to fade.
I wonder if the therapist this brother is currently seeing truly has the capacity to help him. What purpose does wasting time beating yourself up in search of a years-ago elusive cause, actually serve? How will that help? Perhaps he simply got exposed to pornography innocently and unfortunately became a regular user of it. Wouldn’t it be more helpful simply to say, here’s where you are now, and let’s focus on helping you claim the future you want?
This is a very kind and gentle answer. I commend your thoughtfulness and gentleness.
