I’m 48 years old and have been batteling this addiction for a long time. I got into porn at 14 years old, so it’s been 34 years. It started with magazines, and then listening to stories on phone sex lines, renting movies and buying movies. I couldn’t get enough! And just so you know there was alot of money and time wasted even early on. The phone Bill’s were insane. Lied to my parents constantly, but even when I lived on my own I had the phone shut off because of the Bill’s I racked up.
Finaly I started getting girlfriends so that helped slow me down a bit, but I always put porn before them even though they didnt know. So early on I was having ED.
When the internet was up and running that’s when my addiction really went crazy. I’m here to tell you that if you stay in the porn world it will get worse.
I’m a recovering alcoholic (sober 9 years now) and quit smoking 11 years ago and started both at the age of 11. So I know I can beat this addiction.
After 22 days my brain is clearing a bit, but there are still a lot of thoughts and images. I have been feeding my brain with this vile garbage for years.
Porn is extremely addicting trust me. Started soft core and now extreme. I hear guys say" oh it’s fake, that’s not really happening".
I want this shit out of my life for good, I’ve been a pervert for far to long. I want to be a protector of women and children not someone who objectifies them.
I would love to see the porn industry fall, but we all know that will not happen.
There is so much more of my story I could share but I will stop for now.
Stay strong everyone, and trust me if I can do it so can you. Just take it one day at a time, this is how I choose to live my life now!
Any questions for me feel free to ask.
