Hello people, this is my first post to this website. I stumbled across Marnia's piece "What if the Cowardly Lion.." on the Psychology Today site and it was a revelation. Shortly after, I decided to try to kick my habit, and now I'm on my seventh day. Things seem to be going all right so far.
I've been dealing with depression and social anxiety since my teenage years, along with problems focusing at school and work. I had no idea that these problems could improve by breaking pornography addiction, so I'm pretty optimistic, although I do realize that these issues will probably not evaporate completely even if I can kick my habit.
It's not easy for me to talk about this, even anonymously, but hopefully it helps the process along.
Anyhow, this site is an amazing resource. Everyone who has posted about their own experiences has already helped me, as I've been spending a lot of time here reading your posts. You'll probably be hearing more from me soon.
