I use porn to ignore the fact that I’m single and lonely

ADULT ENTERTAINMENT

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN I want to suppress my feelings, I do so by turning to porn.

It gives me a bit of a boost at the time but then I always regret it. I think I might be addicted.

I’m like this with food as well. I eat whatever I see in front of me, then feel terrible.

My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.

I’m a 31-year-old guy who is single and lonely.

I give myself goals and try to focus on making small steps each day working towards them.

It starts off OK but I get overwhelmed then revert to my normal patterns.

I sit and watch self-help videos thinking tomorrow will be the start of my new life.

I want to stop wasting my life with silly behaviour and actually achieve something.

DEIDRE SAYS: You are leading a bleak and isolated life but it is brave of you to admit to having a problem.

All addictions are difficult to overcome alone, so please don’t struggle on like this by yourself. It will take willpower as well.

My support pack Internet Pornography Worry explains more – and give the free online Kick Start Recovery Programme (sexaddictionhelp.co.uk) a try.

Beat (beateatingdisorders.org.uk, 0808 801 0677) supports anyone affected by eating disorders.
