If it quacks like a duck

Hi Guys, I've been watching young men like Gabe faced repeatedly w/ the idea that porn is not an addiction. It is said all the thousands of accounts here are anecdotal, placebo effect, questionable science, moral claims, mental issues...
But when I look at my own story and those of the many I've read (these people have no reason to lie), they invariably describe inability to quit, negative effects, withdrawal symptoms, shame, distress, physical issues...  I say to myself:
It looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck; it's probably a duck.  (Even though I can't prove it.)
I'm addicted to porn.
