Example: Male caller addicted to pornography

“I need help. I have an addiction and can’t seem to stop. I’m going to lose my wife and children if I carry on. Who can I talk to and what sort of help is available? I can’t go to my imam or the mosque, I know I’ll be judged and I feel so ashamed to tell anyone.”
