Real Life Stories
“As a 21-year-old guy, struggling with porn addiction, it was hard to find someone to help lead me in the right direction. Not knowing who to turn to, I reached out to John and talked to him on the phone about his recovery program. I was a little nervous at first because he was an older man. I was scared we wouldn’t connect because of our age differences.
Boy, was I wrong! John is extremely funny and always brings a smile to my face. He really understands all the struggles of being a 21-year-old guy and has set up a fantastic program to help young guys break those bad habits. If you like a good storyteller, John is the man! Not only did I learn a lot about the addiction recovery process, but I learned about all facets of life! He always stresses that recovery is a process, and it doesn’t happen in one week. He is always there for me when I am struggling, and has made recovery simpler than it seems.
I recommend any young person who is struggling with porn addiction to seek out coaching from John! After meeting with John, I have grown in my Christian faith, and have become a more sociable and productive person. I can’t thank John enough for the man he has made me become, and I hope other young guys will give him a call. I can’t recommend him enough.”
An Endorsement for John Doyel Coaching
I am so grateful for John’s help! A crisis in my marriage FINALLY caused me to see how much my sexual brokenness and addiction was about to cost me. I was ready to change and ready to stop hiding, covering up, and lying about what I was doing but I needed help getting started on the right path.
I felt alone and lost. I was terrified! I had no clue what the pathway out of my situation looked like. How do you get out? How do you start addressing the darkest and most secret things in your life? This was such a vulnerable time for me. I needed to find someone I could trust. Beyond that, as a Christian, I wanted help that was clearly anchored in Biblical principles. This is when I met John.
In addition to being married for 28 years and a father, I’ve also been a Christian, a dedicated church member and a ministry leader in my church for many years but I could never get free from issues with pornography use and other habits of sexual brokenness. John was the first person I ever trusted with the absolute, honest details of what was really going on in my life. John’s faith in God, his gut-honest openness about his own journey out of sexual brokenness, and his care for me, stirred up hope within me.
John’s coaching style is a terrific mix of compassion, unflinching directness, and practicality: exactly what I needed. Without John’s coaching and accountability, I know I would not have started making the consistent, daily, and intentional effort that the recovery process requires of me. John’s care for me is like scaffolding so God’s reclamation work could finally get started for real in my life – inside and out, top to bottom. I’ve got a long way to go but I feel good about the progress I’m making and feel so much more hopeful.
