Support, Apps, Forums, Websites, Books

Without support, recovering from a porn addiction is very tough to do on your own, or solely with a partner who is (understandably) feeling resentful. Said one forum member:

I’ve had good experiences with my local Sex Addicts Anonymous meetings (, and the meetings will help you connect with others, and also heal shame that you feel about yourself. Opening up to a group of non-judging folks is incredibly healing, and I highly recommend you check out wherever you live. There are also telephone meetings which are great, and allow you to connect with people all over the world. I’m going to join one of these myself.

A support group is a great way to form close, sincere friendships. Recovering users benefit enormously from exchanging tips and support with others. Many of the following sites have forums, meetings and recovery programs. This new website has a great listing of resources.

Note: If you seek help from a therapist or doctor, you may want to educate him/her first about some of the symptoms heavy porn users are reporting.
