Life can be so wonderfully posed, yet you can be struggling with the scariest demons behind closed doors and not know who to go to or how to deal with it.
The Addiction Nobody Will Talk About is a memoir, self-help book about Joshua Shea and how he overcame his addiction to porn and alcohol.
Joshua seemingly had it all. He had a great life, yet his mental health and addictions were overtaking his ability to enjoy life to the fullest. Things turned to worse when he was convicted of possessing underage pornography, and his addiction completely destroyed everything he held dear.
I found the book to be very honest and seemed true to what it was supposed to be. There was no shame or denial in his admittance, and I found that refreshing. Joshua made it very clear that he saw his problem as an addiction and that he underwent therapy and multiple sessions of treatment in order to deal with his problem.
I felt that his intention was to make it very clear that you can be addicted to porn and it can definitely take over your life if you do not stop before it is too late. People should read this because they may think that it is something normal when it is an addiction. If someone carries on behaving this way, the end road is not a good one; so to prevent it, they need to accept that they need treatment.
