I was born in 1989, which means I hit the age of puberty right around the time that the internet became mainstream. Unfortunately for me, this "perfect timing" would end up changing the course of my life, along with the lives of countless others. People around my age were the ultimate guinea pigs. We were the first teenagers in human history to be bombarded with high-speed internet porn. At this point, it's quite clear that porn, and maybe the internet itself, has had a devastating effect on society. Porn addiction is off the charts, and so is mental illness. So many people have failed to realize how severe the porn problem is. I've been a slave to porn for so many years that I struggle to remember my old self. It's difficult for me to remember how I used to feel before this addiction took hold. Sometimes I wish I was born 10-20 years before I was. I mean seriously, the timing couldn't have been worse. I was 11 in 2000, right as the internet was completely taking over. By time I was 14, in 2003, I can safely say I was a porn addict. I was so young, and thanks to the internet, so fucked up. I'm not sure what the point of this post is. Maybe, to warn people much younger than me. Please, get control of your addiction *now*. Before you're 32, filled with years of sadness and regret.
