Each week we're flooded with emails from those in crisis asking how to forget the affair partner. I hear statements like:

"Rick, it's like a drug. I want to be free, but I just don't know how."
"I can't stop thinking about them... my mind constantly wanders towards them and I really don't want to keep thinking about them. How can I break free?"
"What do I do with my thoughts about the affair partner?"

The detox process an unfaithful goes through is ugly, but necessary. Scary, but essential, IF they are going to break free, heal, and start over. Let me offer some encouragement that it does get easier. The thoughts fade, the images erode, and the detox gets easier and easier over time—with expert help and intentionality.

Hear what one of our Survivors' Blog authors, Samuel has to say about breaking free of an affair partner and finding freedom mentally and emotionally. I hope this video helps shed light on the detox phase of forgetting your affair partner.
