How To Overcome Your Addiction To Porn Like Terry Crews

Finding somebody that admits publicly to his porn addiction is a hard task. I tried and failed for a long time. The feelings of guilt and shame are too big for most men to admit it. Instead, most porn addicts look for anonymous help in dubious forums. But, for my articles on porn addiction I wanted a real human being we can relate to. Recently, I found a man we all can relate to: Terry Crews.

“The thing that you think is imperfect about you is the thing that makes you who you are. It separates you from everybody else. I have a scar on my lip, and for years I hated it. But now its become my thing. It’s like, without it, I’m not me. You can’t be perfect, so enjoy your imperfections. I can’t stress that enough.” – Terry Crews

Who is Terry Crews

Terry Alan Crews is an American Actor former American football player. At the moment of writing this article he plays in the sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He is also an active Youtuber (later more on that) and the new face of Old Spice. Overall, he is a very successful and very masculine man.

I won’t write more about his biography as you can find detailed ones on Wikipedia or on imdb.

Why is Terry Crews a good example for porn addiction

If a man like Terry Crews gets addicted to porn, it can happen to all of us.

As I already said, Crews is a very successful and very masculine man. We can assume he doesn’t need porn. He is married to a former beauty queen. He can find easily somebody to cheat with. He can have the real deal without a problem.

His acting career is lucrative. That allows him to solve most problems the average Joe has. Overall, we can assume that he has a good life.

When he realized that he was addicted to porn, that he had a problem, he asked for help. He went to rehab for about six weeks.

I don’t think that rehab is necessary for most guys. But, to ask for help and talk about the issue is an important step. Crews realized that he needed help and had the courage to ask for it.

After he overcame the addiction he began to speak about the condition in public. He made it his mission to help people with the problem.

2014 he published his autobiography, Manhood: How to Be a Better Man or Just Live with One. In the book he describes the toxic influence porn had on his life and rehab.

“You get better at working by working. And if you don’t work, you’re not getting better.” – Terry Crews

YouTube How To

As I mentioned earlier Crews is also an active Youtuber. He released a seven part series called Dirty Little Secret. In the videos he explains the influence porn had on his life and how he overcame the addiction.

I embedded here the first 3 videos but you should visit his channel and watch them all. The last one is especially interesting.
