The Opposite of Addiction


If you’ve followed this blog for long, you’ve likely noticed that Connection is a repeated theme. This video helps explain why connection is so vital for real recovery. Also, after you watch it, check out the article called “Commentary on ‘Everything We Think We Know About Addiction is Wrong“, which explains how some claims in Hari’s presentation do not fit with internet pornography addiction. Regardless of which viewpoint you side with, I have found that learning to connect is necessary for recovery from sexual addiction. Enjoy! (Note – one brief cartoon may be mildly triggering for some).
