Porn Addiction / Great new article by Rob Weiss
« on: December 19, 2018, 01:51:09 PM »
We've long said on Reboot Nation that not all porn addicts had "pre-existing issues" that drove them to use porn, but rather developed "issues" after chronically using porn through their adolescence. I have good news, more and more therapists are starting to catch up to reality and acknowledge that "opportunity addiction" is a real thing.

YourBrainOnPorn.com first wrote about this back in 2011 here: https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/ybop-articles-on-porn-addiction-porn-induced-problems/the-porn-debate/porn-addiction-is-not-sex-addiction-and-why-it-matters-2011/

Which also links to my video presentation for the 2015 Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health conference titled Porn Addiction is NOT Sex Addiction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9n-hs83AsY

Well known sexual addiction therapist Rob Weiss recently wrote this piece acknowledging this new type of addict. This is great news that more and more therapists are realizing that porn can in fact cause problems, rather than porn use simply being the "symptom" of a pre-existing issue: https://blogs.psychcentral.com/sex/2018/12/digital-age-conditioned-porn-addiction-a-new-version-of-an-old-problem/

Keep truckin rebooters! Much love

What Up Nation!?

My homies over at Fight the New Drug let me share my story with them, in hopes of raising awareness on porn's potential negative effects. They are passionate about pointing people to love, rather than pursuing pixels on a screen that can never love you back.

Short 2 min video: https://fightthenewdrug.org/media/gabe-deem-story-reboot-nation/

Also... they just released a 3 part documentary that I highly recommend checking out. You can view it for free for the rest of November here: https://brainheartworld.org

Hey Nation,

I was recently interviewed by Robert Weiss for his podcast Sex, Love, and Addiction 101. I found it to be a productive conversation and he is really interested in bringing more awareness and help to the reboot community. He has been a mainstream voice around sexual addiction for a long time, and it was great to finally share some of the main points surrounding the topic of rebooting and how a new generation of addicts do not always have pre-existing issues that drove them to porn, but rather had unlimited access and chronically used a supernormal stimulus and then developed issues.

If interested, give it a listen: https://sexandrelationshiphealing.com/blog/a-new-generation-of-education-and-hope-with-gabe-deem-of-reboot-nation/

Porn Addiction / Inappropriate Private Messages
« on: May 24, 2018, 09:19:46 AM »
Hey Nation! It has repeatedly been brought to my attention that some of you are getting inappropriate and offensive personal messages. Myself and the mods have done our best to remove any members who engage in this behavior and we will continue to do so with your help. Please continue to let us know if you get odd/inappropriate messages, and we will continue to take action accordingly.

The only way to stop this behavior before it happens, rather than reacting to it after the fact would be to make new members have to comment a couple times before unlocking private message privileges. This is not something I want to do, as many people sign up who just want to ask a quick question about recovery, or desperately need help, or journalist/producers who want to quickly connect for a story.

If you have any thoughts or suggestions on the matter please comment. I hope everyone has a great day!

Keep truckin' and Much Love.

Hey Nation,

Was fortunate enough to do an interview with Dr Suzanne Phillips on her podcast Psych Up Live. We discussed porn addiction, physical and mental symptoms, the reboot process, and better sex ed, among other things. If you want to give it a listen it is about 45 minutes if you skip the breaks.

Hope everyone has a great porn-free day! Keep truckin Nation and much love.

Porn Addiction / Have any questions for myself or Dr. Andrew Doan
« on: January 25, 2018, 06:22:11 PM »
Hey Nation,

Tomorrow I am recording a new show with Dr. Andrew Doan, a brilliant neuroscientist and expert on digital media addictions, where we  will discuss research on behavioral addictions (primarily porn/gaming). One of my goals with the show will be to separate fact from fiction, in regards to what people are experiencing, and the science behind our experiences.

We will have a brief Q&A section of the show where we will pull questions off Reboot Nation and other forums or social media. Tomorrow we will be discussing Addiction in general, whether behavioral addictions are real addictions, and directing a podcast that was skeptical of gaming addiction.

So, please ask any question you'd like and we if we're able we will answer it on the show. Much Love,

Gabe

Porn Addiction / Your Brain On Porn the book AVAILABLE in Arabic!!
« on: December 13, 2017, 02:46:01 PM »
What's up Nation,

My number one goal with Reboot Nation is to help people. And my strategy for achieving that was to focus on raising awareness. I have good news. The book Your Brain On Porn is now available in arabic! I've received several messages over the last couple of years asking for translations of helpful material into arabic, and the YBOP book is the most informative piece of work on the subject in my opinion. Would you please share this link/information with anyone you may know that could benefit or help get the word out. Here is a direct link - http://commonwealth-publishing.com/shop/your-brain-on-porn-arabic/

Hey Nation,

I was interviewed for this piece on RollingStone.com raising awareness on porn-induced ED. Noah Church and myself were fortunate enough to share a little bit about our story. While I have my issues with it (1: The warning on Gary's TEDx talk is bullshit, as his talk isn't even about masturbation. 2: Left out the fact that guys with PIED cannot masturbate without porn, ruling out "performance anxiety. 3: Left out all research correlating porn use to sexual problems/case studies documenting young guys recovering from pied/de by rebooting etc...) It will hopefully raise awareness and start more discussion about what we're experiencing in communities such as this. Give it a read..big win for awareness of porn-induced dysfunction and potential negative effects.

Hey Nation!

Just posted a new vid to the Reboot Nation YouTube channel. It is my full presentation from a couple months ago at the Coalition To End Sexual Exploitation summit in Houston, Tx. I spoke on why porn is a public health issue that needs to be taken seriously, and shared my story. Noah Church also spoke alongside me, as well as a wonderful friend Haley Halverson. Noah dug into the science and Haley covered the dark side of porn that can get abusive and aggressive and how that can lead to violence in some cases. Overall it was an AWESOME conference that was one of the most powerful, influential, and memorable weeks of my life. Please SHARE this video on social media, and share it personally with anyone who may benefit from it. I love you guys. Y'all have a great day and keep truckin!

Porn Addiction / BBC 5 LIVE Radio - Thank you
« on: January 13, 2017, 06:43:31 AM »
Morning Nation,

Just did a interview with BBC 5 Live radio (probably the first time I woke up at 430am in my life haha) and wanted to say a big thank you to Steve and to Simon for going on the show and sharing your experiences. It is so encouraging to see you guys improving and sharing your story to help others.

To anyone who is lurking this page or "new", make sure you check out our YouTube channel as it has a lot of basic info to get you started. Here is a interview I did sharing my story - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8kJ387-rzg&t=3s

and here is a video about the good ol basics! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4yx4ouxGbQ&t=2s

And the scientific info I talked about that helped me tremendously can by found at YourBrainOnPorn.com (It is linked at the top of this page  8) )

If you're a partner of someone struggling/addicted/recovering, you can find support and wisdom in this section - http://www.rebootnation.org/forum/index.php?board=7.0

For articles specific to women and rebooting, stake a gander on this page - http://yourbrainonporn.com/articles-special-interest-women

Much Love Nation and I hope the best for everyone.

Porn Addiction / ANY UK based Rebooter Willing to Share Your Story?
« on: October 12, 2016, 01:55:16 PM »
EDIT: You can remain anonymous for the radio interview.

Hey Nation, I've been contacted several times in the last week from BBC Radio and other producers/journalists looking for anyone in/near the UK who would be willing to speak with them and or share their story of porn addiction/porn-induced erectile dysfunction. Please comment here, or message me, if you would be willing to speak up and raise awareness of the problem.

Our voices and stories can help others avoid the pain we've experienced. Helping others can also help you have a purpose bigger than ourselves behind rebooting. Speaking up about PIED was one of the toughest but most rewarding things I've done in my life, and I encourage everyone to at least consider it, but of course I completely understand choosing not to. In any case, thanks for being here and I hope the best for you all.

Much Love

Porn Addiction / Tips for small talk while socializing
« on: August 23, 2016, 10:33:29 AM »
What up Nation,

Just wanted to drop a link here for anyone who struggles with social anxiety around having conversations with others. One of the most important things rebooters need to do, in my opinion, is spend less time online and more time interacting and conversing with people in person (which is why there is no chat option here btw).

Here is a article I stumbled on today with some simple tips to help: http://www.artofmanliness.com/2012/08/22/how-to-make-small-talk/?utm_content=bufferf6732&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

Porn Addiction / Interview With Noah Church Author and Speaker
« on: June 04, 2016, 01:56:48 PM »
What up Nation,

Last week while Noah and I were in Cali to raise awareness on porn's potential negative effects, we figured we would take advantage of our time together and interview each other for our channels. We each asked each other about 5 questions regarding rebooting. Hope you find some of it helpful.

Interview with Noah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcgJeI7BQcg

My interview for his YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzD1O87Ag8U

Hope everyone has a great porn-free weekend! Much Love

What up Nation,

Noah Church and I had the privilege to raise awareness about porn-induced ED on Chelsea Handler's new show on Netflix. This  will reach a lot of people (it streams in 190 countries) who need help and are possibly unaware of the potential negative effects of porn.

Here is a preview: https://youtu.be/Y2VvjmOmmHE

If interested, search Chelsea "perils of porn." It is season 1, episode 8. Also, make sure to get in the social-media convo using #ChelseaShow or tagging @chelseashow / @chelseahandler

Much Love
