My husband and I have been separated for over two years now and part of the reason for our split was his addiction to sex and pornography. For years I have judged him for this and it's taken me some time to understand that this is just another psychological addiction. My attitude toward pornography remains one of disgust because of my beliefs and values and I make absolutely no apology for that, it's just who I am. I came to DS initially to find support for the abuse that I had experienced as a child and to help recover from the trauma of it all, Since then it seems that I am able to open up completely about a whole lot of problems in my life and this has helped me grow and more importantly trust in people again. If I had the chance to go back to my relationship with my husband I would do so with an open and understanding mind. Hence my reason for joining this group. I hope to learn something helpful in my quest for understanding this kind of addiction.
