Recently one of our speakers was at a high school sharing their story of porn addiction and finding freedom. During the question & answer time, some of the students commented “but you don’t look like a porn addict”.
It might sound a little humorous because, what did they expect a porn addict to look like?
(Probably like Russell Brand, who ironically is someone who speaks out against pornography)
What an actual porn addict looks like – (that’s me)
The encouraging thing is that if it’s just average, “normal” looking people who can be addicted to porn. I don’t have to look far to find heroes of freedom and courage. My heroes in the anti-porn movement, my heroes who have fought through debilitating addiction and come out clean on the other side all look “normal” like me.
And as the word is spreading, there are so many “normal” people who are getting on board, helping out, being heroes and doing whatever they can.
Recently two friends helped us redo our Logo. It looks so much better!
See they are really good with graphics and I’m not. So they helped us out of the goodness of their hearts.
Is there something you would like to help us with? Maybe you don’t want to be a speaker, or writer, or counsellor, but if you want to help the cause then just remember that people who look just like you, can help rescue people who look just like me, and together we can all fight back against the plague of pornography.
