I’ve been struggling to quit for some time now. And haven’t been able to reach a year of sobriety and recovery. I know it’s an addiction and I know it harming me, my relationships, and how I see the opposite sex. It’s a behavior that I’ve seen become out of control, which to me is multiple times a week and sometimes even multiple times a day.

I’ve seen that the more I watch the more extreme the content has gotten. The stuff in the past like just pictures don’t do it for me. It’s not as arousing as videos and such.

It’s cost me so much time consumed within that I’ve lost hours of sleep, sometimes even going all night. I’ve lost time that could’ve been spent improving myself and my grades. I’ve lost time developing relationships and connections with friends and loved ones.

It’s caused me to feel apathetic and sluggish. Unmotivated and perverted. It caused me to feel a disconnect in life.

I am grateful though for the opportunity to share my experience. It seems the porn industry LOVES to gaslight us to believe porn isn’t a problem when it is. I’ve seen it. I’ve seen their propaganda machine in action, and I hope to be a voice. A whistle-blower that will hopefully see change done to call out this industry and its evil scheme
