Pornography Addiction Therapy

Understanding Pornography Addiction

Pornography addiction is the most common form of unhealthy sexual behavior. Regular pornography use changes the way the brain works by increasing the production of certain chemicals associated with pleasure and reward. When a pornography addict stops using, the pleasure and reward chemical levels in the brain drop, causing withdrawal symptoms like increased irritability, moodiness, anger, anxiety and sometimes depression and paranoia. Pornography also often leads to broken trust in relationships, and can contribute to the belief that promiscuity is natural and marriage or relationships are confining.

The use of pornography is a growing problem in our society. Countless companies have disciplined or dismissed employees caught viewing pornography at work. More than half of all divorces are linked to pornography use. Two out of every three males between the ages of 18 and 34 watch pornography at least once per week. And with the availability of internet porn, any individual with a laptop, tablet or smartphone can get their “fix” almost anytime and anywhere.

The good news is, pornography addiction therapy can help you learn to manage and move past your addiction. With support, you can stop the cycle and begin healing your relationships.

It is possible to understand why you are struggling with pornography addiction as well as how to stop and live free of it.
