Porn as a crutch

So as someone who is teetotal and have been for 17 years, dont smoke or take drugs i found porn to be my outlet.

If i had a bad day, a big argument with a partner, get very bad news then i reach for the porn. It always took my mind off my troubles and distracted me from feeling bad.

Because i have used porn as a crutch for so long, i dont know any other coping mechanisms that are remotely close to this in terms of affect.

The consequence is that too much porn effects my sex life and ability to get or maintain an erection.

Perhaps i spent too many years living alone suffering depression and anxiety and porn was my crutch for the bad days, bad news etc

Even no it feels like my go-to response in really bad times. Maybe a double whiskey would be better?
