Most everybody wants their life to go in a direction of falling in love and being in a relationship. Porn is the opposite direction. 👎🏼
A few of us posted up at the Utah Coalition Against Pornography (UCAP) today! Dropping knowledge and selling merch! http://t.co/sOgG7k0PEr
RT @Haley_Teal: To the sad person who had an "I ❤️ porn" bumper sticker on his car, I sincerely hope you change your mind. #itsnotokay #Fi…
The more a user looks at porn, the deeper those pathways are wired in, making it easier to turn back to using, whether they want to or not.
We're the first generation in history to face pornography on this scale. We’re also the first with a scientific understanding of its harms.
Enough said. #FightTheNewDrug http://t.co/iBvYf8g48n

RT @_AubreyAiken: Porn isn't cool and it destroys families and lives. Let's #FightForLove ❤️@FightTheNewDrug #pornkillslove http://t.co/t5W…
To a porn user, real women are just bad porn - not as exciting, not as pleasurable, and not as extreme. How sad is that? #FightTheNewDrug

RYAN WERNER // CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER (CO-FOUNDER)

Ryan is a mountain man wannabe, connoisseur of doughnuts, proud husband, and father of two. In 2009, Ryan left his comfortable surroundings, turned his back on a steady income, and moved to Salt Lake City to further establish Fight the New Drug (which was mostly conceptual at that point). Loads of leadership experience, marketing prowess, and entrepreneurship make him a valuable asset to FTND.

JORDAN GOUGH 
// ART DIRECTOR

Jordan, or known on the internet as “goffgough”, is the artistic hand at FTND, crafting beautiful masterpieces with his mad real design skills. If he’s not thinking about design, he’s probably thinking about what kind of pizza he’ll eat next or exploring the intricacies of the Home Alone films. If there’s a dull moment in Jordan’s life, it’s filled with useless TV binge watching, living in raw denim jeans, and trying to get in as many push-ups and pull-ups as possible. #Reps. Jordan’s spirit animal is an alligator and he falls asleep at night dreaming about fonts, namely, Futura Bold.

If there’s one thing Claire loves, it’s getting the facts.

When she’s not digging up research or moving misplaced punctuation marks, she’s usually rowing, getting pulled to the park by her dog, or eating entire pizzas.
