How to Overcome
Addiction to Pornography
access to pornography so incredibly easy due to the nature of the internet the
number of people viewing online pornography has skyrocketed and its loss of
taboo status to almost be a norm for many people has led to a sharp increase in
people who have become mired in the world of smut. How to overcome pornography
addiction has become a major topic because of the enormous numbers of people who
have realized that it has gone beyond cheap thrills and occasional titillation
and has started to control their life.
the biggest problems we start with when looking to break free of an addiction
like this is the social stigma associated with it, many people would laugh if
you admitted to having an addiction to porn that was inhibiting your life where
if you admitted that you had an addiction to alcohol or a drug people would be
more sympathetic. This compounded with the high number of people who have become
addicted to the world of porn because of low self esteem means it can be a real
uphill battle that many face on their own without any help.
being said, difficult is not the same as impossible! To start with you must take
some practical steps to limit the damage this problems causes and you must
develop a resolve to quit and be done with it 'cold turkey' as they say because
any 'once off' moments can be a very self defeating thing where the slide back
into addiction can take hold. So to start, while you are committed to this
course of action and are ready to take some action do this:
Unsubscribe to any pornography pay sites you have.
Delete all links & passwords to any pornography websites you have ... clean
out your internet history completely so there is NO trace.
Download an adult content blocker and install it. While you can always
override it the blocker will help stop you browsing and getting caught up.
Also if you have someone helping you with this get THEM to set the password
without you knowing to make it more secure!
something else you can do when you get bored or frustrated online that will
take your mind off your habit as boredom and frustration has been proven to be
a major factor in building a pornography addiction.
some time to think of the 'why' of your addiction. How to overcome
addiction to pornography requires serious, honest introspection and can be
more important than willpower and actions like the points before as a
behavioral addiction is usually a result of other problems in your life such
as low self esteem, depression, stress or sometimes even anger against the
you need to stop your
