About

I am just a guy who has been consuming porn on a daily basis for about 14 years and has decided to get serious about quitting.

Regardless of whether my usage is classified as an ‘addiction’, I have grown extremely unhappy with my inability to stop watching it and the control it seems to have over me.

I intend to use this blog to write about my experiences and feelings during what I hope will be a period of recovery, and who knows maybe it will provide some insight or help to others who have decided to get serious about quitting.

If you would like to share your thoughts, experiences or ideas and tips regarding porn addiction, I’d love to hear from you. Similarly, if you are going through something similar and want to chat, Feel free to get in touch:

  1. Wishing you the best Brian, I worked in the sex industry (years ago) and started feeling while I was in it, we were contributing to people relating to a fantasy somewhat. I commend you for taking hold of your own care. Real human interaction is always better. All the best.

  2. You write, “Regardless of whether my usage is classified as an ‘addiction’, I have grown extremely unhappy with my inability to stop watching it and the control it seems to have over me.” I wish you the best too. I have been battling this since I was a child. I was exposed to pornography at the age of 10. My home life was less than ideal and was a perfect laboratory and breeding ground for this addiction to take hold of me.
    I have been sober now for almost 10 months and this is my longest time sober in over 12 years.
    I do believe that definitions are one of the keys to understanding and as the world understands addiction so I too understand it. The psychologists say that, “Addiction is a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continued use/act of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, or health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others ”

    Good luck on your journey. You are starting on the right path. Let me know if I can be of any help.
