Publisher's Summary

Anyone who has struggled with sex addiction knows that living with constant sexual compulsions can be extremely difficult. But summoning the courage to find help for this condition can be even more of a challenge. If addictions to pornography, strip clubs, massage parlors, prostitutes, phone sex, or chat rooms have made you feel trapped, this book can help you find a way to break free. Written by a former sex addict who specializes in counseling people who suffer from sexually compulsive behavior, Breaking the Cycle presents a step-by-step plan to enjoying a life of productivity and purpose.

You can free yourself from the powerful, compulsive urges that may have damaged your career, finances, or relationships with friends and family. The exercises in this book will show you how to regain control of your life and build meaningful intimate connections with others.

Very Helpful in learning to think differently!

I have truly been helped by this "audio" version of this book. Now I recognize I have a problem and that my behavior is not "normal adult" behavior.

This book HELPS

Any additional comments?

This book deserves 10/10. Listening to it consistently has cleansed my mind of sexual thoughts. It's given me a healthier mind. When I stop listening to this book for a week, I end up relapsing, but then I start listening at least an hour a day again, and I no longer feel like I'm a slave of my sexual desires.

I struggle with depression, so masturbation offers a temporary way to relieve stress, and gain pleasure, but it's bad long-term. Thank God for this book.

The road to recovery is long, and steep, but this book functions as a rope that keeps you from falling back down.

It’s a shame it took years to find this book m

It’s interesting that I had to search through hundreds of disgusting erotica books (just because of a sexual health search) and countless google searches before I found this. I thought I was going to have to settle for a Christian purist book (which I’m grateful for books like every man’s battle, but I’m secular and not even Christian). It just goes to show the inherent exploitation of sexuality in our society. Being a millennial, growing up lonely with the internet and a society that almost intentionally distorted my understanding of sexuality, I have been needing a book like this to really change my brain chemistry and sexual paradigms.

A wonderful book

This is a very well written book (well done audio book too) for those wishing to rid themselves of the menace of pornography. Have faith in the author and listen carefully on the issues presented. They know what they are talking about.
