I’m a music teacher, I have an amazing wife named Rose, and 3 awesome pets, Fezzik, Beatrix, and Lucy(one cat and two dogs.)
I’ve struggled with pornography and all that comes with since I was about 11. I’m nervous to be on here and out in the open like this, it’s hard to let other people see weaknesses! Especially since not as many people understand the addiction and suffering part of the struggle of pornography. A lot of people think it’s just a harmless thing. I strongly disagree. There’s no love, no connection, it just creates an insatiable craving to fill an unending void.
I’m hoping to find some encouragement and support on here! I had been sober for nearly 7 months!(which includes masturbation), which is my longest streak ever. Then I had a relapse. Then I was sober for 15 days, then another relapse. So I’m trying to be proactive!
I receive tons of support from my wife, even though she doesn’t fully understand what I deal with especially with the withdrawals and urges. So I thought through this app I could see people that really understand that side of it. I also receive very helpful support through my religion, I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.( Which I’m hoping I may just talk openly and not have anyone talk negatively about my religion or beliefs, that’s not why we are here, this is a place of encouragement and support. )
