I first heard Frank Rich on the Fit for the Kingdom podcast with Trent Holbert, and something in me was drawn to his crusade.
As for porn, that came many years before. I was introduced at the age of 12. Through my teen years, I'd say I was probably a full-blown porn addict, and I neverdealt with it. As I got older, married, wife, kids, the usual stuff, porn would come and go. It was always there, lurking, waiting in the shadows. I could have an extended period hooked on it, followed by an extended period free from it. One thing was certain, it always came back. It definitely caused a strain on all my relationships, especially on my marriage.
Through Frank's coaching, I was able to identify triggers and acknowledge the problems that porn was causing in my life. His plan helped me to build new habits, routines, and disciplines to deal with porn's attacks. I especially enjoyed the creation of a morning routine and the peace that the gratitude journaling gives me throughout the day. The fitness plan was put together well, and was adapted to my capabilities. It pushed me, and my strength gains were considerable.
I feel like I'm more equipped to serve others, and help others that may be dealing with a porn addiction. At very least, I feel like I can walk alongside them in their troubles.
I know that porn will never cease to raise its ugly head, but now I'm fully prepared to deal with it when it does.
