What is
Pornography Addiction?

Porn addiction can be defined as the continued use of porn to deal with uncomfortable feelings and moods in spite of the continued consequences.

You know you should stop. You tell yourself to stop, but you keep looking anyway.

The behavior, besides the immediate sexual gratification and the quick escape, leaves the person feeling guilty and shameful, and compounds itself with consequences and unmanageability in the person’s life.

Often, the person engaging in the compulsive pornography addiction gains little satisfaction in the long run from the behavior. They often feel lonely, depressed and out of control, which in turn leads them back to the compulsive porn use in an attempt to feel better and escape the pain.

How Do I Know If I’m
A Pornography Addict?

For Some Porn Becomes A Prison.

We know that porn can impact the brain in a serious way.

As we are studying the brain and addictions, we are beginning to see that intense online porn use changes how the brain responds to sexual cues. In one area, called hypofrontality, the brain loses the ability to say no or control the impulse to take action on a thought. For the porn addict, it becomes harder and harder to say no to internet porn.

You probably know this already!

Trying to change on your own will most likely be unsuccessful. Your brain needs help.

You need the support of others to successfully change your behavior. Willpower alone may help you in certain circumstances, but you will not have any real long-term success. When the crisis is gone you will most likely return to your compulsive porn use.

You need the help of others to help create a solid recovery plan.
