    Hi Everyone

    My name is Wally. I just turned 37. I never even knew websites like this existed until today. I'll cut right to the chase. I'm pretty sure I have a porn addiction. It began when I was about 14 or 16. I don't remember exactly. It started with looking at pictures on my 28.8 kbps modem in the mid to late 90s. Now in 2019 I have entire hard drives full of my favorite porn. But after reading about the psychological effects of porn addiction I've realized that I am experiencing some of those issues. It has clearly had detrimental effects. I did not lose my virginity until I was almost 29 years old. Since then I have had sex with only 4 girls, and I had trouble getting and maintaining erections with all 4 of them.

    Hi Wally - great to have you here. This is the first step in the right direction!
    Your story sounds so similar to my own, as I am about your age (slightly older) and can also remember the old dial-up internet. There is no man or woman on earth using porn without terrible consequences on their and their loved ones' lives. Living with porn may seem possible to some, but it is only within the context of dysfunction - like a dysfunctional relationship that drags on simply because everyone involved has learnt to live with it. You have started a process that will open up a world you didn't know existed - one where your true potential will become clearer to you - potential that you never knew existed, as you have always functioned under the burden of porn. Good luck and hang in there!

  6. Hi Wally, I am new as well. Just a few days in. Fair play to you for being so open about it. I hope you get something out of this. I hope I do too. It is great to see it working in so many others though, I know that for sure. Good luck.
