Pure Victory Podcast co-host Braden Hafner thought marriage would be the solution to a porn addiction that gripped his life. That is until his wife confronted him and shattered his wrong thought patterns. Hear how he got healthy, got porn out of his marriage, and now uses his story to impact others!
Listen to his story and see what you can apply to your own life!
Here is a brief summary of the episode.
Often we link porn to sex, and we view it primarily as an outlet to get a sexual release (or sexual "need" met). But as Braden discovered, porn is not just about sex. Porn wires our brains to demand a dopamine release (common in addictive behaviour) to feel excitement, cover pain, or avoid boredom and/or anxiety.
Marriage doesn't solve a porn addiction

Porn erodes intimacy, so get it out of your marriage!
Porn is something that we try to hide and keep a secret, especially from our loved ones. In marriage, secrets destroy trust and intimacy, which is something Braden had to contend with. Getting the truth out in the open is an important step towards healing and repairing trust in a marriage.
