How to Overcome Porn Addiction


How to overcome porn addiction Like every other addiction, porn addiction
can ruin a person’s life. It can damage relationships, careers and a
person’s state of well being. Porn addiction can be compulsive. You can spend quality amount of your time
watching porn instead of interacting with others or completing important tasks. According to a 2015 study, porn addiction
can cause characteristic changes in brain activity called P300 and can occur within
300 milliseconds of viewing it. This reaction is similar to the same response
of a drug user who views drug-related paraphernalia or images. Watching porn starts as something interesting
at first but it’s only a matter of time before you realize that it has become a solution
to all your problems and sooner than later, it becomes your problem. Porn addiction makes you lose control. It steals your time from literally everything
and before you know it, you become all about porn. This happens because you cannot get over it. Hence you keep viewing. The more you view, the more you want to view
because more time to get you to the level of excitement or pleasure that you get, each
time you do. In this video, we’ll be sharing with you
some tips on how to overcome addiction. If you’re new here, consider subscribing

nothing is going to work. You need to determine that you are tired of
the negative effect porn has in your life and you are ready to give it all up. If you fail to do so, you’ll find yourself
going back to porn over and over again, and each time, you do, you’ll become more addicted,
sinking into the life of porn. To really get the determination to stop viewing
porn, try to know the reasons why you must stop, the implications of porn addiction as
stated earlier. Search Google to know more about the bad implications
of porn so that you’ll be motivated to stop. 2. Get rid of the porn sources Once you have decided/determined to overcome
your porn addiction, the next thing to do is to get rid of every source of porn in your
possession. Now, this is tricky because this is like saying
get rid of your phones, your computers and the likes. I bet you’ve tried that in the past and it
didn’t work. To get rid of porn materials available, asides
from discarding pornography contents such as discs, magazines and the likes, be sure
to erase such contents on all your devices. Unsubscribe from pornography content and block
people who send you such emails. The point is, get rid of every possible source
of porn in your life. Once you are done with that, it’s time to
block porn from coming into your phone or computer. You can get filter software such as Covenant
Eyes to do the job. The software monitors each website and searches
term used. It then sends a detailed automated report
to an accountability partner. It literally alerts you when you try to reach
for certain contents. While we’re still on the subject of getting
rid of porn materials, it’s important to stay away from friends who are likely to push you
back to your old habits. Not only should you block them across your
social media platforms, but cut such friendship in real life so as to avoid any negative influence
that they may bring back into your life. 3. Speak to someone about it We all need a listening ear at different points
in our lives. And getting one to talk to during your struggle
with addiction is indeed a good idea. But first, make sure it’s someone that you
trust and someone that truly cares about you. You can make the person your accountability
partner. It’s best to get someone who is preferably
the same sex that you can be honest with and help you stay encouraged. You can even join certain organizations, bodies
or groups set up to help people with this kind of addiction. There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed
of. It might be difficult to do, but once you
do, you’d surprised to see that there are so many others struggling with this addiction. You are not the only one. 4. Celebrate your small victories every step
of the way Every step should count, including seemingly
small victories. Don’t beat yourself up because it’s been 2
weeks now and you still haven’t overcome the addiction. How about the fact that you have trashed every
porn content around you? How about the fact that you’re constantly
getting back into work rather than spending all day satisfying your pleasurable desires
as you once did in the past? When you recognize your progress, however
small, it helps you trust in yourself and in your ability to overcome the addiction. So the next time you feel like giving up and
going back to being a porn addict, pinch yourself back to reality and say, if I have made it
this far, I can make it to the end. 5. Get Productively Busy Why do people have the time for porn in the
first place? Mostly because they have all of the time in
the world. While being busy may not be the end to your
addiction, being busy with productive things take your mind off porn and gets you occupied
for most part of the day. Even though you’ll still have some time
after work or on weekends, if you’re very busy, you’re left with few hours and that
can easily be occupied with other interesting things other than porn. 6. Fall in love with books There are many things that can make you high
other than drugs or porn. Book is one of those things. If you’re a good reader, you’ll hardly
feel lonely hence; you’ll never have reason to engage with porn. 7. Make Friends with Positive People If you hang around positive people, you’ll
have less time to be alone or lonely. More so, these people will challenge you to
dream big and pursue worthwhile causes with your life. This in turn will make you busy and the thought
of watching porn will soon be dirty to you. Thank you very much for watching our videos. We’ll like to give you another interesting
