This week I'm guest posting on To Love, Honor and Vacuum again by Sheila Wray Gregoire about pornography addiction. Recently, I decided I think what we're calling an "addiction" has gotten blown way out of proportion. Since I (and likely you, if you're reading this) have lived through the chaotic, life-ruining, devastating effects of addiction, I don't like to see the word used lightly. I started to research it and it turns out, there are discrepancies across the board! So, I went to my husband (my go-to expert on all things addiction-related) and asked him how many people he met in treatment who actually had a true, legit, addiction to porn. 

His answer? Almost none. 

Here's a sneak peek at the post:

"If you’re reading this right now, you might be one of the many of us whose spouse struggles with a pornography addiction.

Addiction is a term we’re using often nowadays, “Addicted to video games”, “Addicted to food”, “Addicted to tanning”, “Addicted to sugar”. But what’s the difference between a true addiction, an obsession, a bad habit or a compulsion? And why does it matter what we call it, isn’t it all the same if it’s hurting your marriage?"
