Quitting Porn = The Hero’s Journey 

(This is a adaptation of a podcast. Listen to the podcast.)

If you’ve been trying to quit porn (and failed) you might think of yourself as a loser or a weakling, or find yourself feeling a lot of shame. That’s one way to think about it. But what if you are actually a hero?
