I can still remember the first time that I decided I wanted to tell someone that porn had become a problem in my life. I was terrified. It turns out that the hardest part was starting to talk, because after that I realised that I wasn’t alone.

What frustrates me so much is that porn is not something that is talked about, and that is really what allows it to thrive. There is so much shame and guilt associated with it. So it’s very common for young guys and girls who are struggling with porn to just keep it to themselves.
