My name is Chris and I am a 28 year old male. I joined this site probably for the same reasons that most of you joined. I've realized how destructive pornography is and it is in the process of taking everything away from me. I started watching porn consistently around the age of 15. I used it as a coping method while I was having social difficulties at school and with athletics. I guess it became a security blanket for me at the time and developed into an addiction. Over the last 12 to 13 years I've continued using porn on and off from a day to day to a week to week basis. I watch it when I get stressed or when I'm bored and all alone. My wife has discovered my addiction and she has known about it for as long as we've been together. She has threatened to take the kids and leave me for good multiple times. You would think that nearly losing your family like that would compel you to stop however, I have not been able to pull myself away from it. I've been to therapy and joined a 12 step support group for this once already which just pissed me off and did not help much. I feel like I'm down to my last straw here and I felt maybe this site could help me.
