Creating conversations about pornography.

Quitting leaves you calmer and more relaxed, so our conversations should be too. We can have better conversations when we're

  • Empathetic

  • Open-minded

  • Supportive

  • Non-judgemental

  • Respectful.

My mum says to 'always take the high road', and by all doing that, we can build higher roads together!

Find calmness

Itโ€™s always best finding yourself before trying to change the world.

Start spending days outside exploring your local community (as above) and finding hobbies and sport teams.

Hereโ€™s some resources for helping.

  • learnstuff.today has things you can learn to make your life better

  • your local council website for events and happenings in your local community

  • mental health resources can be found through online, usually through your government or not-for-profits.


Lets use porn as an example.

Since pornography is so normalised, it can be awkward discussing it.


  • being yourself

  • weaving in personal anecdotes

  • and allowing people to have their own beliefs goes a long way.

Much like anything, there's no 'one size fits all' solution for discussing porn -- it depends on the context of how you're doing it.

What helps is having elation, acceptance and a non-judgemental mindset.

Instead of creating fear or stigma, you want to create a conversation about it.

You might say,

โ€œholy heck, I quit porn recently and I feel so goodโ€

which someone might question with

โ€œwere you a porn addict?โ€

and you might say that you feel thereโ€™s no such thing as a casual user, just varying extents of the same problem.

How you discuss a personal issue is up to you!
