Are you aware of any organizations in Montreal related to ...

Hi I know this question may appear on your question page but ask if possible to remove my name :) I'm an Addictions Youth Counsellor in Montreal, I'm writing because I have a bit of a dilemma. Our Youth Counsellor team has been requested to lead a youth group for one of the organizations we work with, and they asked us to create a "boys and girls" group, which is problematic and exclusionary. We are now brainstorming ways to create a more inclusive group and recognize that some of our clients are currently experiencing bullying by peers in relation to gender identity and sexual/romantic orientation. As well, we have the added difficulty of having to offer this service online, which complicates our ability to insure a safe & confidential space. So my main question is: are you aware of any organizations that would be willing to help us navigated or offer resources on creating a youth group that is more inclusive but still mainly focused on issues related to addiction and mental health? Any resources or suggestions would be much appreciated!


I am worried about being addicted to online porn

Before I say why the last five months have been so interesting, I will try and catch you up. All my life, I have been attracted to women. I can remember my childhood crushes, the girls I used to date, and the first time I snuck a peek at Playboy. Shannon Tweed, Heather Kozar...ahh such beautiful women! I grew up well, had wonderful girlfriends, all of my sexual fantasies and urges involved women, girls in class got me off, I loved the way they looked and felt, one girl in which I fell in love with for the better part of two years. I was a very happy man. In addition to this, I had a couple addictive/compulsive/obsessive things to my life and what I see now as the most troubling was an internet porn addiction. I looked at it every day since the age of 16. I loved it though and thought nothing was wrong. I gradually moved on to more hardcore stuff. What should I do now? Is there a way to get rid of this addiction, or is this just normal and I should not worry about it?
