One of the biggest factors in healing from an addiction is community. Emi Bass is a student at Brigham Young University and wanted to do something to support those struggling with pornography addiction after being directly impacted by it in a former relationship. So, she decided to start a club. COVID hit and the club went to Zoom and has stayed there, as it became a safe place for those who are struggling to find community. Listen as I talk with Emi about her inspiring journey to create a space to share resources, hope, and friendship with those impacted by pornography. In this episode, we discuss:
- What inspired Emi to start the Un-Alone club
- The ways the Un-Alone club offers support
- Her doubts and reservations about starting a club like this
- The response she’s had from club members
- The impact this has had on her personally
- Future plans for the club
- How we can support those who struggle
