I think the missing piece in my recovery efforts is connecting with another person who understands what this addiction is like. I have tried so many ways of quitting porn but at the end of the day it’s always been me struggling alone. I think this addiction (probably most addictions) thrives in isolation and I have come to the conlusion that I cannot beat this on my own. I’ve tried 12 step groups but A) I don’t really agree with several of their beliefs and B) I am a complete introvert and struggle to express myself in groups. I’d like to find someone 35-55 years old (I’m 42) who is willing to commit to meeting in person once a week. I’m an atheist but you wouldn’t have to be, just please respect my beliefs and I’ll do the same.
