The forum is free to sign up and has a variety of good discussions. There are sections for recovering porn addicts and a section for partners of porn addicts. Each section contains a variety of threads where you can ask questions, start new threads, reply to current threads, help others, or read what has been posted to benefit from the experiences of others.
The software links on the site are software recommended by the site author. The first is Covenant Eyes, which is accountability software. This software tracks everything you do on the internet, eliminating the “secrecy” aspect of the internet that makes people feel safe to view porn. It reports pornography sites that you view to your accountability partners, whom you pick. Additionally, you get a discount on Covenant Eyes for being referred through No-Porn.com. The second software is affirmation software called Sculptor 3. This software helps you work on positive affirmative goals. Focusing on positive goals is exponentially more effective than focusing on negative goals. For example, “I will not look at porn” isn’t very helpful but a positive goal like “I’m going to restore my ability to be sexually stimulated by my imagination” is extremely helpful and motivating.
Finally, let’s review the e-book, Ten Keys to Breaking Pornography Addiction. It can be purchased on the website for a fair price and is then downloadable via PDF so you can read it immediately. I found this book to be extremely helpful to read another person’s experience and struggle with porn addiction. It gives lots of great tips and provides a really intimate account of the author’s struggle with porn addiction. If you haven’t heard or read about someone else’s struggle with porn addiction, to do so is extremely valuable. Overall, it was a great read and I would highly recommend it.
As for the criticism, while this book was extremely helpful and has helped many people end their addictions, I didn’t find the book to have the answers I was seeking for how to end porn addiction. The author talks about a life long struggle with porn addiction and excessive use of internet filters and accountability. Personally, I want to be able to conquer my addiction without having to protect myself from the internet. I believe porn addiction can be conquered in a more permanent way so that you’re not fighting it every day for the rest of your life. Temptation will likely come along occasionally, but ultimately the system I developed is more permanent and I don’t feel like I’m fighting my addiction all the time or censoring my life.
