Hey guys. First time thread post - I wanted to ask those of you with partners have a particular rational to handling arguments with your partner so you don't feel so drained and frustrated that porn becomes the answer to make you feel better. I relapse around the holiday period as work continues for me through the holidays and it stresses me out. That being said, I find I must be the first to apologise and re-establish contact after a fight with my partner. I can acknowledge where I went wrong (as is my first line when I'm trying to get us to talk again), but I often feel like I have to admit I'm the problem that caused everything else to not work and ask for forgiveness. Porn is of course not the answer, but I can't cry very easily, I haven't got friends close enough to talk about this with and my family aren't the best to talk to with these issues either. So I feel alone, stressed from work and having to apologise for being a screw up. How do you make sure you don't fall back on your addictions to feel better when the thing you're meant to love being a part of isn't going well at all?
