I often take a self-inventory of how I am doing in my own recovery. I’ve been doing that for almost 20 years. Funny how a recent “near death” experience caused me to raise the bar on that process. Then I wondered, “if I would do things differently because I knew I might die tomorrow, why wouldn’t I make those same changes if I didn’t?”
My challenge to myself and all of you is to make 2017 a year of breakthroughs by considering that very question: “If you had only a month to live, what would you change? And if I am not sure if I’ll die in 30 days or even tomorrow, why not make those changes anyway?
All of us at Candeo wish everyone a phenomenal 2017.

A new term coined in 2011 by sex counselor Ian Kerner called sexual attention deficit disorder (SADD), is now being used more and more frequently to describe the unforeseen consequences of a vanishing libido among men who view online pornography. In their attempts to “chase the high” of an orgasm, many men need increasingly more visually stimulating and explicit material. When opportunities arise to engage in sexual relations with spouses or partners, however, many men are found to be missing in action, and simply unable to perform.

I got a message from a Candeo student that described the consequences of his addiction in a way that was so impactful. With his permission, I would like to share what he discovered.

Hi, my name is John Hodges and I started with Candeo back in the early fall of last year. I was at a point in my life that I knew had to be rock bottom. I had lost my marriage and fell through a roof and was out on workers’ comp. I was at home surfing the web when I found an article about Candeo. After losing my marriage due to a string of bad choices I had made, I had plunged myself into self medicating with pornography and masturbation. I knew, however, that at some point I was going to pass the point of safe return and be lost forever (because I chose to be). I didn’t want this. So, when I saw the article and came to the site, I felt that God and steered me to it. Now, I KNOW that He did.
