Thank you!

I do not know how quickly they will be taking down the domain or how few will read this, but I would like to post one more note to thank you all for helping me get through the tragedy of being the wife of an addict over the years. I would be a complete mess if it were not for those who came long before PAI was established and taught me about co-dependency, about putting myself up on my list of priorities, of helping me to understand that I could stop feeling guilt over an addiction that I had no ownership in or control over. But that was just the beginning and the real healing began here, at Porn Addiction Info, where I met the most wonderful people, people who sometimes carried me through the worst times in my life. I consider you my friends forever, far beyond PAI.

I only wish this site had been enough to save my ex and my marriage, but it was not meant to be for us. There was a lesson in all of it. Looking back, I see how very lucky I was to escape the darkness of my ignorance and I am now, for the most part, living the life I had always wanted but could not have under the isolation and manipulation of his addiction. I am no longer living under the addict umbrella.

MANY THANKS TO ALL OF THE MODERATORS, PAST AND PRESENT, WHO HELPED KEEP PAI GOING FOR THE LAST 11 YEARS. There is no way I could have managed without you and I hope that you got some love and appreciation from the thousands of lives you have touched with your kindness and support. Just know that you all have my utmost love and respect. There are no words to express how thankful I am that our paths have crossed. It is a privilege to know you, I truly mean that!

I have no doubt that the site was helpful to many people and it helps to know that something positive came out of the pain that this addiction caused. I wish I could do more, but it is time to move on. I pray for each of you to find happiness and freedom that comes with recovery. Come out of the darkness. Live in light.

Much love,
Linda (aka toft)

Note: As the domain name is still alive, you might want to check back over the next year to see if someone else starts it anew.

Addiction doesn't kill the addict. It kills the family, kids and people who tried to help!
