My New Book is Now Available!!!!

Screen Shot 2019-09-11 at 12.54.52 PMWell, this is the week the book is officially released. By the time you read this, it will be live on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and a few other online booksellers.

This past weekend, I participated in an Ask Me Anything event happening on Reddit. It was an interesting experience and was nice meeting new people.

I have no problem with anybody else doing them, but I’m not into awards or challenges or any of that stuff. However, since I am a hypocrite at heart, I’m going to continue with an idea I found on another site and began last month. Click Here


Screen Shot 2019-12-05 at 8.03.39 PMGuest Post: Meet Tony Overbay, My Co-Author of ‘He’s a Porn Addict, Now What? Over 15 years ago I started thinking about changing careers. I was writing a humor column for my local newspaper and many of my articles had to do with becoming a new father. I loved being a father and that was when I first felt the “call” to want to help other men become good fathers as well. Click Here

Obviously, I was thrilled and excited with the fact that my new book was released earlier in the week, but I’m also excited to share with you a book project that I played 0.0002% in. Click Here


Screen Shot 2019-12-05 at 11.07.58 AMIs It More Important to Be Popular, or Taken Seriously? I’ve operated this site now for 27 months and despite times of lengthy posting droughts, like earlier this year, or times of daily updates, I’ve managed to produce 225 entries. I think with this experience behind me, I can start to develop trends on what works or doesn’t work when it comes to people reading my articles. Click Here

Latest appearances

Screen Shot 2019-12-04 at 3.33.05 PM 12/4 – The Good Intentions Show For those who prefer video podcasts, this was a great one with Tim Ray, who’s an absolute fantastic interviewer. This is my second time talking to him and it’s always a great conversation. Click Here


Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 2.53.35 PM12/3 – The Drunkalogues Because my focus is pornography addiction, the fact I was co-addicted to alcohol often flies under the radar. In this interview, we talk about how the two addictions worked in tandem. Click Here



FBTB 089 Joshua A. Shea Instagram (New)12/2 – From Betrayal to Breakthrough Dr. Debi Silber and I spend a fair amount of time in this 33-minute interview talking about how we can keep kids away from pornography. It’s quite unlike most of my podcast appearances. Click Here



Screen Shot 2019-12-01 at 12.18.03 PM12/1 – My Wakeup Call Host Dr. Mark Goulston has sold over 500,000 books in his career and is more accomplished than I could ever hope to be. This 45-minute podcast is one of the most interesting discussions I’ve had. Click Here

      1. 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!


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Hey dude,

    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!

    Peace Y

  5. 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.
