P0rn addiction is the fastest growing addiction in our country, and one of the most hidden. “This thing doesn’t go away, it’s like cancer in the brain, but it’s cancer in the thoughts,” said a recovering porn addict who asked to be called Joe, as he didn’t want to reveal his identity to the public. “You need darker things, harder things, more violent things often.”
For this addict, the seed was planted when he was in 6th grade and watched an R-rated movie. Over time, his addiction slowly escalated. P0rnography is often compared to crack-cocaine. Nobody knows that better than certified s3x addiction therapist, Chris Simon.
Simon founded Denver’s Restorations Therapy Center in 2014 after battling his own p0rnography addiction. He said most parents don’t realize the biggest users are kids between the ages of 12 and 17 with their first exposure averaging around 8-years-old.
