Hello everyone. I am brand new to this site and have been struggling with porn on and off since I was a teenager. I am in my mid-20s now, have a wonderful girlfriend of many years and am soon to finish my medical training at the end of this year. I realize that I can't fully return the love and affection of my girlfriend nor appropriately provide medical care to my future patients if porn keeps me in the mindset of viewing people as simple, expendable objects to be used instead of complex, unique individuals. Though I have realized that porn is a false representation of romance and intimacy for a while, all my efforts to quit have been done so alone and these repeated attempts to quit without any sort of support have been the cause of each downfall. I hope that, by joining you all, I can find some support and community to create lasting change by doing away with the plastic passion of porn and find true fulfillment in real relationships.
