I went to school at a military university which had the ability to track web usage

It started innocently enough (so I thought) just out of curiosity. As an adolescent boy, I think it’s normal to wonder how all of that looks and works. Downloading porn via file sharing software quickly became a mild addiction up until I left for college. I went to school at a military university which had the ability to track web usage. My addiction continued and worsened. I hit rock bottom one morning when I turned on my computer and saw I had been blocked from the network. I was greeted at the door by my military supervisor who had been made aware of my internet activities. It became very real very quickly how easily my military career aspirations could be wiped out at the hands of an online porn addiction. I agreed to seek counseling in lieu of punishment and praise the Lord have been porn free ever since.
