The following comes from a February Catholic News Agency article:

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” actor and former NFL player Terry Crews is opening up about his addiction to pornography through a series of Facebook videos, explaining how it “really, really messed up” his life and threatened his marriage.

While Crews was able to kick his porn habit six or seven years ago, he said it is now his mission to help others who are struggling.

“Some people say, ‘Hey, man … you can’t really be addicted to pornography.’ But I’m gonna tell you something: If day turns into night and you are still watching, you probably have got a problem. And that was me,” he said.

In his second video in the series, Crews talks about how he beat his addiction by going to therapy. He also encourages women to not tolerate pornography in a relationship.

In his third video, Crews talks about the sense of entitlement that comes with watching pornography, and the desire for intimacy that cannot be fulfilled through watching pornography.
