The news that Matt Lauer had been terminated from NBC News, while shocking to many, did not come as a surprise to some. I, for one, was shocked. I’ve watched The Today Show for many years and have always enjoyed Lauer’s journalism. I think Lauer, more than the others, reveals an ugly truth about sex addiction, or compulsive sexual behavior (whatever you choose to call it) – Many men struggle with it, even the seemingly least likely.
And that’s what led me to share the video below on my YouTube Channel. I don’t know, but I am guessing that those who knew me would have never guessed that I struggled with compulsive sexual behavior. I was, to use the controversial phrase, a “sex addict”.
After struggling for a long time, and nearly loosing everything, I got help. I found someone who had been through it and found a way out of the endless, heartless, cycle. And now, I’ve become a certified coach so I can help others do that same.
We are in the midst of a global opportunity for men to reflect on their behavior, admit their failures, and get help. It’s not too late. It’s never too late.
