Surrendering to Structure – Life After Lust VLOG Episode

Surrendering to the Need for Structure in Recovery

About 2 weeks ago I came to two humbling realizations:

1) I was fatter than ever
2) I needed structure in order to take my health seriously

Around that time a friend invited me to join a fitness challenge. I have found this highly structured with high accountability approach to be exactly what I needed and I have thrived as a result.

What about you? Are you naturally self-disciplined or do you need external structure to achieve your goals?

This morning on my walk I shared about this topic in my newest VLOG called Surrendering to the Need for Structure in Recovery. I hope you find this video insightful and encouraging as you strive to achieve those things that mean most to you.

Seeking out structure doesn’t mean we are weak. If anything, it means we understand our needs and are courageous enough to get them met in a ways that strengthen and support us.

May we all find the structure we need to thrive.

Have a great weekend.

Give Hope (First Life After Lust Commercial)

Screen Shot 2017-12-09 at 8.37.27 PM

I’m excited to share with you a Life After Lust commercial I created today in hopes of encouraging people to give the gift of hope this Christmas. Can you take 30 seconds to watch it and another 30 seconds to share it with someone?

I continue hearing about how Life After Lust is impacting people and it is my hope that this video helps more people find this life-changing resource.

Gratefully,

Forest

Talking to Young Kids About Porn: Resources for Parents

Screen Shot 2017-12-07 at 1.54.20 PM

The topic of protecting children from pornography is very important to me. Anyone who has read my book Life After Lust knows this. Today I had the opportunity to write further about this essential topic in my LifeSTAR article called When to Talk to Your Kids About Porn: It’s Earlier Than You Think.

The following quote answers this question:
“Experts in child abuse prevention and pornography addiction recovery advise parents to begin educating kids about online dangers as soon as they have access to the internet. This includes access from mobile devices owned by friends, family members, teachers, fellow students and babysitters.”
If you are a parent I urge you to invest a few minutes in reading the article. There are great resources available. As parents, we are not helpless against porn.

Goal Surpassed – Looking for Ideas

Goal surpassed

Hello,
Due to the massive generosity of the project’s backers, the Life After Lust Audiobook Kickstarter campaign has exceeded its goal by over $500…and we still have 12 days to go! That is mind-blowing!!!

Sincerely, I thank you. Thank you for believing in me and this project. We would not be at this place without you.

You may be wondering what will happen to the excess funds that are raised.

In the campaign, I optimistically stated that “IN THE EVENT THAT OUR GOAL IS SURPASSED, EXCESS FUNDS WILL GO TOWARD FUTURE LIFE AFTER LUST/RECOVERY RELATED PROJECTS.”

So, here’s my question. Can you help me brainstorm ideas on other Life After Lust resources that would benefit the world? Ideas could include a version in Spanish or another language. I invite you to send ideas to me at forest@forestbenedict.com.

Isn’t it amazing that we’re even talking about this? I am so grateful to be in this place and look forward with expectancy to seeing what else we can create in the world to help those in need.

Gratefully,

How to Know if an Addict is Healing: Betrayal Trauma Recovery Interviews Forest Benedict, LMFT, SATP

He Says He's In Recovery, But is it True?-2
Partners of sex addicts are on heart-breaking and hard journey. One of the many challenges they face is seeking emotional safety within their relationship, which is a difficult skill to master. In many cases, an addict will make promises of change (certainly, they usually want to change). But, based on their history of misusing  words, they often create a situation where words mean nothing and action with the right attitude means everything.
In my recent interview with Betrayal Trauma Recovery, I talked about what constitutes good recovery for an addict and what partners can look for as signs of progress. If you’re a partner of a sex or pornography addict, I encourage you to listen to this podcast (here) and seek the help you deserve (See What My Wife is Worth).
Wishing all partners strength, hope, and healing.
