I have had this addiction for 8 years and have come to a turning point. 

I was so deep down in this addiction I couldn’t feel anything, I was like a empty shell with panic, full of shame and no joy for life. 

I kept this secret for myself all this time until one day, when in decided to tell my family. This was a hard decision, the hardest thing I’ve ever Done. I was so close to ends this instead of telling them, but I didn’t.

After this and the News that I will have a son changed me, now I want to reach out to peoples in the same situation and try to reach young people and make a difference.

 

Best regards,

Hi. Takes courage to post on here so well done for that. Use this as day one, put blocks in place and please stay on the forum as there are many people in the same boat who can offer better advice than most. Even if you don't post, realise you are not alone. Take care
