Dr. Steven Lytle from Sparrow House Counseling answers the question “How long does recovery take?”
Recovery looks different for everyone, but chances are, if you have been viewing porn for a long time, recovery isn’t just a weekend conference or a one time counselling session. Recovery is a process that takes time. Going to counsellors and meeting with professionals can be the beginning of that process but it is a life long commitment. Many times it takes up to seven years for someone to start feeling a lessening of the desire to act out sexually.
It isn’t just a one time fix, it is a lifestyle change.
