Thanks! Fingers crossed people buy it and it’s not just a curiosity they walk by, like a Vanilla Ice movie.

Vanilla Ice has a movie?! haha
I don’t think sales are as important as you having the courage of sharing all of this. But of course, I wish that everything works out!
Cool As Ice, 1991 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101615/
And you’re absolutely right. I’d just like to see all of that time I wasn’t chasing paying writing gigs to amount to something more than 8 sales.
+9 is a good, realistic goal 😉
I applaud you Josh! Very tough road I’m sure. Get your head up, your doing the right thing. Great job!
Thank you Scott, I appreciate your support very much.
Wow, that’s amazing! I’m glad you wrote it. I will add it to my reading queue.
Thanks! It’s never going to be a best seller, but it is nice to know a few people are going to read it
Thank you for being open about this relevant subject! I, along with my other pastors, was never taught how to address this matter in seminary. Despite the neglect, God showed me how to extend grace to those with this struggle and help restore them to the path God has for them. Someone must speak up, and those who hear must not play the Pharisee.
Hey Joshua, I left you a review on Amazon. Thank you so much again for being a guest on the Addictions Podcast. I plan on airing the episode on February 12th, so stay tuned for that!
I heard you on a podcast and bought your book exactly four months ago now. I finally got through the book (I’m a slow reader but also thought it wise to chew on your story daily.) You may have saved my life. I took your advice and have filed this as a cautionary tale. Read, filed, and there to read again. Many positive actions have been taken in that time span. More to come. Sleep – I must add – has proven to be my biggest ally for positive change in my life over these past few weeks over which the most change has occurred for me.
Wow…that’s incredibly nice of you to say. It’s more than nice. It’s powerful. Thank you so much for sharing with me.
You are so welcome. As I read this reply from you to my post, I feel connected to you as not just a writer of a book but as a real person. It brings up emotions of both sadness and joy – for your hardships and your ultimate successes. I am sure much of that emotion is mine as I consider my struggles and several times when I thought my actions were about to bring my whole world down. I have had so many chances to turn it around and I feel that this will be the time when it may actually happen. Thank you again, Mr. Shea.
You know where to find me if you need any words of encouragement or help and don’t ever feel too shy to write a magnificent 5-star Amazon review. 🙂
I think you are brave to write about this. It needs to be talked about more and not held in dark. Much respect to you man!
Thank you, I appreciate the support and respect.
Thanks for following my blog – I’d try to follow you back but I don’t know how to (just got this thing).
It’s awesome you’re doing so much for the recovery movement – much respect!
A huge congratulations to you Joshua! Looking like a volume so many can benefit by too.
Thanks for the follow and congratulations on the book! By any chance, were you following me before under a similar but different name?
My husband also had a 30-year porn addiction that he hid from me. When he brought it into the light and worked to overcome it, it completely changed our marriage for the better. I never doubt that porn addiction is real and I’m glad you’re talking and writing about it.
Thanks for the support! Never followed you under a different name. I always use my full real name in talking about this issue.
Hi Josh I read your book and really appreciate the effort you put into writing your story! I’m a guy in my early 20’s and have been watching porn daily since my early teen’s. I cut back on my non-work related internet use over a month ago to be more socially active which happened to include cutting porn but that wasn’t the original intent. I finally came around to critically thinking about my porn use about a week ago and haven’t found very much research that thoroughly examines the mental health effects of pornography. I found your book by searching “pornography” into my local library catalog, and am convinced my decision to cut pornography out of my life is a good decision after reading your story and will continue to do so. Thank you for providing insight into this topic when I struggled to find relevant literature, I really appreciate it!! Also I live in Arizona, so your influence made it across the United States.
Cole, I really do appreciate the kind words. Since I don’t make any money on this stuff, it’s comments like yours that keep me moving forward. Knowing that I’m making a difference is what keeps me going. Don’t be too shy to put a review up on Amazon. You’d be amazed how much those convince people to sample a book.
