Hi everyone,

 

I want to start by saying i have finally admitted i need help and an addict. I am 27 and been addicted since i was about 18. I have spent thousands on cams and escorts over the 9 years, and it doesn't make me happier. I need a group of people to help me, i don't have many friends so no-one knows i struggle with this. 

 

i was wondering what ways you all managed to stop this demon in your life or had any nice words or just tips to help me.

 

Thanks.

Hey,

It's good you recognise this problem and want to change. Things can be different and you can sort this out.

Here are some online resources:

But mostly I would like to encourage you to reach out and find some people in the real world you can connect with and help. You are not alone in this and there are many guys like us who struggle and we can help each other. I did Paula's course and met other guys through that but there are other ways too, e.g. SAA or SLAA.

I think it's great you can come on here and ask for help and be honest. That is a big step and it took unfortunately a lot of things going wrong in my life before I could admit that. I also wasted a lot more of my time on it than you did. You still have so much life ahead. I'm really excited for you!

Please keep learning and growing. Finding out what things truly make you happy and trying that out is a great way to learn about yourself, it's something I think everyone struggles with to some extent but sadly we don't talk much about it. And then for some guys like you and me, when we feel down or directionless in life, we want the "comfort blanket" of porn or sex. But it's only temporary and doesn't solve the real problems and even creates more because we then feel ashamed and isolated.

There's a whole world out there for you. Although it's something you have to gift to yourself, you're not alone and others are here to help.

Peace
