How to Break Porn Addiction

altWhile a healthy curiosity for pornography is acceptable, it doesn’t take long for it to become a raging addiction.

Here are some steps to help curb your addictions before it is too late.

1. Have Regular Sex

The best way to stay away from porn is to indulge in the sexual act yourself. And regularly, that too! This will ensure that your fantasies and urges find their outlet in the real, physical world, and do no leave you longing for a visual experience of the same. However, if you CANNOT have sex, masturbate, and if even THAT does not provide the solution, the next few tips would prove helpful.

2. Masturbate

When the option to have sex is not available, or you do not have a partner who you can live out your fantasies with, the next best option to satiate your urges is masturbation. This helps release sexual tension and is a healthy way to curb any build-up of sexual energy that a guy is likely to experience. However, if you CANNOT have sex, or masturbate, the next few tips would prove helpful.

3. Interact with Real Women

Porn-addicts tend to get increasingly anti-social with time. The lack of extroversion results in unrefined social skills and underdeveloped interpersonal communication. The next step in curing your addiction is to distract you from giving in, by interacting with real women. Pornography builds up an unreal image of women and its influencing visual power makes men look at real women in the same light, as porn stars. Meeting other women will break this cantankerous image and let you experience social relationships anew.

4. Opt to Live with Parents

Staying alone can often result in an ‘I-can-do-as-I-want’ attitude’. This may also lead to the comfort of acts such as trudging about in minimal clothing, feeling oneself where and when one wants, and also, shamelessly, watching a lot of porn. However, moving in with one’s parents or relatives, or asking them to come over to stay, can help alter the scenario to a huge extent.

5. Find a New Hobby

Perhaps the lack of something more productive or interesting is what prompts you to spend as much time as you do watching porn. So, go on and find yourself a new hobby. It could be learning to play an instrument, taking classes to learn a new language, playing that sport you always wanted to play or haven’t played since you were in school or college, or simply reading or writing. The new-found interest is bound to keep you hooked for hours, and definitely off porn for long!

If dealt with sincerity and diligence, porn addiction can be done away with. Follow the suggested steps to bring your life back on track.

"Food interacts intimately with the microbiota so we considered what modern additions to the food …
