In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton speaks with Josh Peters. He’s a 22-year-old Brigham Young University-Idaho student who just released a video sharing his experience as a pornography addict.

Peters says he began looking at porn when he was 11-years-old and instantly became addicted. Over the years, he learned to deal with the addiction through his faith and religious beliefs.

Now Peters wants to help others dealing with the same problem and he hopes his poetry slam video touches others.

Watch the video above to see his conversation with Eaton. For more information on Fight the New Drug and resources to help with pornography addiction, click here.
