I've identified myself as having a porn problem...but as much Ive tried (been trying  since joining GYE years ago) I honestly have not pinpointed any "underlying issues" in my life. My life is great - other than my problem with porn.
Am I....
a) not being honest?
​b) haven't looked hard enough?
c) just a guy who really enjoys looking at shmutz and can't break a bad habit?

You're being very honest by writing this post. 
It's very common that people who are good in most areas but are struggling badly with lust. Hashem made this desire very big for many reasons.  
I doubt that you enjoy and feel good about yourself after looking at porn. 
If it's just a bad habit then you can for sure break it like many others have done.
But it might be addiction which requires other approaches than dealing with habit breaking.
