Hi I'm BjoernB, I'm in my mid 20ies, a musician and teacher and porn has been an on-off problem in my life well over 10 years since I was 13. I tried soooooo many freaking times to break free, managed to have some streaks of abstinance from up to 30 days, but always relapsed sooner or later. I'm also battling CPTSD that developed during childhood and porn is a more or less effective coping mechanism against feelings of anxiety and depression – not really helping, but numbing the pain momentarily. Since I'm commited to make progress on the battlefield of mental health I'm very well aware that I need to get hold of my porn addiciton as well. It's not helping with my symptoms but (who would have thought...) making it even worse in the long run. That's why I decide to register here in search for a supporting community (even if it's "only" online) to not be fighting on my own anymore and hopefully beating the addiction at last. I'm excited to get to know some of you and finally creating a support group to beat this b***h.
