But even though I wanted to stop, I found that I just couldn’t make myself do it. The internet made bad choices so effortless.
Here was the cycle I found myself in:
1 – Have a desire to look at porn
2 – Tell myself that I shouldn’t look at porn
3 – Cave in and look at porn
4 – Feel like garbage that I looked at porn
5 – Want to find some comfort from feeling like garbage, you know, like maybe porn?

It was a perpetual cycle. The more I fought my addiction, the worse I felt after giving in to it. So I basically stopped fighting and just accepted that the addiction was part of who I am.
What do you think?
