Cody and Charlie Vlogs

Postby Daphne32 » Sun Feb 11, 2018 10:39 pm

Anyone watch this family? They’re super small, only a little over 4K of subscribers. Their video ‘We’re Getting A Divorce’ kept coming up in my recommendations and so I finally clicked on it. At first I felt really sorry for the wife. It’s clear her husband has a porn addiction. I ended up being right. He had a go fund me set up asking for $30,000 to go to some addiction recovery center. He ended up deleting it when no one gave anything. Apparently, from his story on the go fund me, he started looking at porn at 13 and than got bored with it and began going to sex websites to talk to women and hook up with them in real life. His wife never knew. They have 2 very young children together. Anyways, I commented a supportive comment and they deleted it and blocked me. They keep saying they want to help people with addiction but won’t address the issue, even though a quick Google brought up the damn go fund me that told the whole story. Just a little irritated and wondered if anyone else had watched them.

I started watching after the first divorce video came out. Thanks for filling in on the addiction - I wasn’t sure what it was as they are bring very secretive.

Super sad for her.

I watched this weekend, seems super strange the way they skate around the actual truth, and are they still living together?

Weird channel. I had the same experience. Kept popping up in my recommended, clicked, but they literally say nothing in their videos about the actual issue. Then in the newest video (project in the works), which I kind of skimmed tbh, she just drones on and on without saying anything specific. If you want to focus so much on bringing awareness to something...MAYBE you should address it directly or people will lose interest FAST.

She has zero charisma. He seems creepy. They might want to rethink the whole vlogging thing...

Thanks for the info on him though. I love the world we live in where people just toss up Gofundme's for literally anything. Who the hell do they think they are asking for $30,000 because he watches porn? So bizarre.

I don't mind the lack of charisma, because I appreciate they're being real and raw. And IDK their story is interesting enough.

But wow, she talks way too much. Way too long. She needs to learn how to be concise with what she's saying.

If anyone else is annoyed by their vagueness on Cody's addiction here is the explanation he provided on go fund me:

Addiction Recovery Program Fund

$30,000 goal

Campaign created 6 days ago

Created February 4, 2018

Hello,

My name is Cody and I destroyed my life with my addiction. Like most people in my support groups, I was subjected to pornography at a young age. Not as young as some people, but young enough. I was 13 when I laid eyes on my first Playboy magazine. On the bus ride home, my ‘friend’ opened up his backpack and riffled through the multiple inappropriate magazines he had until he found the one he wanted to show me. Since then I was curious and interested in seeing more. Throughout my teenage years and even past highschool, I was always trying to find time to get my daily ritual in of feeling the urge to indulge in pornography and masterbating to it. Eventually looking at porn got a little boring for me and I wanted more. I made several online dating accounts and started talking to women. None of which I had the intention of meeting up with. I wanted something a little more realistic. I knew that on the other end of the phone or computer screen was another person like me. Someone real, someone breathing, someone who wanted to indulge in their sexual desires just as much as I did. I knew this because the moment I started talking to someone, the conversation turned sexual. Every time. We (the person I was talking to and myself) would fantasize about all the things we would do to each other if we were to meet up. During our conversations I would indulge in porn to further the realistic feeling of the fantasies and conversations I was having with these women. As soon as I would ‘get off’, the conversation I was having with the woman at the time died off instantly. All I was looking for was the satisfaction and rewarding feeling of ejaculation. It just turns out I happen to use women and pornography to help me get there. One day while talking to anonymous people through an app on my phone, I met this girl named Charlie. Immediately I could tell this interaction was different. With no effort at all we were able to talk about everything except sex and sexual fantasies. We ended up talking for a long time. Then we eventually started dating. Then we eventually got married. Yep, the person I was talking to this whole time is my wife. We hit it off well and kept it going for a long time. Of course, I was still indulging in my inappropriate behavior while talking to her. I did try to stop acting out and was able to go a month or two at a time with the distraction of talking to Charlie. After we got married I thought for sure my acting out would stop. I was was wrong. Two months into our marriage my wife caught me talking to women again and masterbating to them with pornography. At that point we made a pact to be in recovery, but it was a false start. I found myself talking to women again a few months later. It went on like this for almost four years. The constant acting out, getting caught, feeling ashamed and making another false start to recovery. Our marriage was in shambles. We lost the love and communication we once had for each other. We constantly argued and bickered until one of us gave in and ran out of the house to go for a drive. Finally, I made one last attempt at recovery. I started going to a weekly meeting, talking with sponsors, reading scriptures, praying more and even talking with Charlie’s dad on a weekly basis. Charlie’s dad has been a Bishop in the church for almost ten years and knows his way around addiction recovery. We thought we were making great progress. Charlie had planned a lot of things to do with me to get our marriage back on track and to spark the love again. Sadly, even though we were making progress I was taking steps to further my recovery, I found myself slipping up and once more indulging in sexual conversations with women. Even though my wife had not found out about my acting out again, our relationship started to fall back into the deep end. She always got a feeling from the spirit when I was acting out. Our relationship would get worse until she mustered up the courage to ask me if I messed up again, then we would go through the vicious cycle of playing 20 questions trying to get me to fess up to my wrongs. I never said right away what I did, it always took an interrogation to get me to admit it. In November of 2017, my wife got a huge slap in the face by the spirit telling her I messed up big time. She pushed the feelings away because she knew I was doing good things in my recovery. She thought how could he have possibly messed up any more? She fought the spirit day in and day out for an entire month constantly at battle with herself and the spirit saying, its not true he didn’t do anything and I’m just going insane. Well on December 20th 2017, she finally had the courage to ask if I messed up. She asked me to answer her honestly then proceeded to ask if I slept with another woman. As much as I wanted to say no, I said yes. I slept with this other woman as a result of a buildup of resentment and anger for the crumbled broken relationship we have. My addiction finally grew into its worst form. From then on we have been falling further apart from each other and we officially decided a divorce is the best thing for us at the moment. Fingers crossed to getting healed and getting back together! I decided I must dig as hard as I can to stop this behavior or the path I choose to follow will be far deeper and more painful to get away from. I increased my weekly meetings to 4 per week, see a therapist and now participate in an online program. I have plans of attending Desert Solace Rehabilitation Center to further my life of recovery. I want to beat this thing and I know I have the power to do so. I am on the right track, I just need to stick to my daily recovery work and never give up!
