Pornography addiction treatment
What is PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION
Pornography can become addictive to some in the same way as drugs and alcohol. Individuals with a pornography addiction may view pornography as an escape from reality, and often neglect other areas of their lives. A porn addict may use porn as a mechanism to escape from the feelings and emotions that they do not want to feel. Porn addiction is progressive, and the addict often seeks more explicit and graphic material as time goes on. Unfortunately addicts may sometimes access illegal material to get the same rush they once had. This escalation in behaviour can create problems for the addict and those around them. Often individuals struggle to stop on their own, and choose to seek pornography addiction treatment.
The consequences of pornography addiction can result in depression, anxiety, and lack of motivation. Porn addiction can cause sexual disfunction and a lack of interest in sex. Furthermore, an addict may will withdraw from an intimate partner and disassociate from their relationships. Excessive pornography use can also cause an individual to avoid intimate relationships.
