6 Essential Steps
Instead of rehashing what's already been said a million times in the NoFap community and elsewhere, I thought I'd talk about the root cause of your addiction to pornography, explain how it works, as well as what tools I personally used to overcome it. The point is, don't quit pornography just to end up tied with a sister evil deed to pornography. For women, additional porn addiction stats indicate 70% will become pregnant with at least one unexpected pregnancy. Should you have qualms about quitting both habits, prioritize quitting pornography over masturbation.
At any rate, if you're reading this post, you or someone you know is trying to quit porn and are looking for some help in doing so. Here's the good news: in the vast majority of cases, you don't need expensive rehabs or retreats to rid your life of porn.
Trust me. I was a porn addict with no sex life and using what you will learn in the program I now have a ridiculous sex life with deep connections, multiple GF's and even threesomes. Addiction to pornography is cited as a major reason couples divorce annually around the world.
Porn addiction relapse is not if you turn to view pornography one time. When you quit pornography, you purify your spiritual system, as you are able to worship Allah in a better way and a more sincere state. This is why I previously suggested one of the major steps you're overcome pornography is to engage yourself in real life activities.
I have been watching porn since I was a teen and now that i'm 25, I noticed, not only my taste in porn has gotten weirder and scary but it has also ruined my social life. Nine months ago, I started a podcast called Alex Wood Quits Everything , which has seen me also quit weed, caffeine, biting my nails, cigarettes, red meat, dairy, porn, credit cards, and gossip.
Sure, there are a addiction few differences, but overall, quitting porn is just like quitting pretty much any other bad habit. In other words, don't use relapsing to masturbation as an excuse to use pornography, since that will drill the nail into the coffin. That's when many of the older guys, in their 40's and 50's start to develop sexual problems.
At this point, your mind will have sufficiently separated masturbation and pornography and will be prepared for you to cut out pornography forever. I continued on with my awful habit until last month when I decided to give up once again but this time both porn and masturbation.
It may not take you 90 days to quit, you may find out you have other addictions, you may quit porn for good and struggle with erectile dysfunction for a few months after. When they tell us "it's okay, just a little peek" or whatever it is. That's why absolute behavior, quitting completely and totally, is the best way to quit porn, IMHO.
Many people Dr. Drew for example or some other well-known therapists will work with somebody on porn addiction. We lie about our porn use, we lie about the sort of porn we watch, we lie about even watching porn. The earlier you learn how to quit porn addiction, the better it is.
There is a direct relationship between the sexual objectification of girls and aggression towards them, according to research by psychologists at the University of Kent in the U.K. We fight against porn because people aren't just the sum of their parts, to be used and discarded without a second thought.
But watching people playing with their dicks and asses are not cool. You need to move past this stage as it may feel hopefully and, as you used pornography as a coping mechanism previously, you may fall right back into the same trap. Tell a friend that you'll pay him $100 if you crack and look at pornography at any time during the next month.
