  1. Thank you and that is or can’t be emphasized enough in this short commet. Your words to the youth of the world and adults are encouraging and give clear clarity to an insidious plague upon the world . To some that maybe over the top but to those who are plagued with this addiction they will understand if they are on the life long path to abstaining from Pron . As with drugs it takes a few months to get out of the fog so to speak to really start to realize truth and what is real . I could go on forever but hopefully those who are young never start watching Pron ,those who are watching ask themselves thy is it making me a better person is this something I want the world to know I do ,do I want my children to participate ,am I truly happy with myself .There are many places to get help and I know in the world today to mention religion is not politically correct but this plague of Pron and the negative effects upon humanity way out way me being politically correct . Seek out Heavenly help pray for strength talk to someone who you respect who you know relies on spiritual guidence in there life . This is an addiction that can be beat but it takes more than what we as mere mortals have in our tool chest .

  2. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d
    like to send you an email. I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  3. This Ted Talk video of Maria Ahlin is quite moving, had a lot of informational statistics on this taboo topic.

    I like the profile that you guys have put together. Are you open to suggestions on which other CEO you can showcase on your website?

  4. Right here is the perfect web site for anybody who wishes to find out about this topic.
    You realize so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I
    really will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic that has been written about for years.
    Excellent stuff, just excellent!
