  1. This article is so important. I remember first telling my mom about my masturbation/porn use. When I told her that I masturbated, she sort of laughed it off and said that it’s okay, that it’s just a part of growing up. Then she said “as long as you don’t watch porn”. Then I told her I did that too. She was silent until I said “Are you mad at me?” And she said “Well… just don’t do it anymore”. And that’s all I remember. I’ve only talked to my parents once about porn since and again, I felt a very passive, side-line type of support. I don’t want to blame them for my addiction because it’s not their fault, but I always wish that I could have more support from them and those first impressions really didn’t leave me feeling like I had that.

  2. I am a small group leader in a local Celebrate Recovery, which includes a sex addiction support group. So I understand where you are coming from.
