Treating the Addictive Behavior is NOT Enough

By Eddie Capparucci, LPC, CSAS, CPCS

Men who struggle with sexual or pornography addictions believe once they have learned to manage their addiction that forgiveness and Grace should flow from their partners’ hearts. Well, that usually is not how it works, and it leaves many men feeling frustrated and hopeless.

What a woman needs to see from the man who betrayed her is real change and that involves more than simply managing your addictive behavior. It requires changing how you approach relationships. You see, most men who struggle with these addictions, do not know how to do relationships. They were never taught the skills needed and did not see the role model when growing up.

Well, it’s time to learn how to love.

To help, I have identified multiple character flaws that serve as a barrier to developing and nurturing healthy relationships. The video below walks you through each of them and shows the REAL change a woman wants to see from the man who broke her heart.
