Four Steps to Overcome Porn Addiction

These four steps will help you overcome porn addiction. By now you realize that overcoming porn addiction is going to be a battle. It’s a battle you have lost, until now. So, get prepared so you can win this battle and declare the war to be over.

Step 1: Be Committed to Escape the Fantasy World of Porn

You are at war! You are battling the entire porn industry. They know exactly how to occupy your mind and are not willing to let you go. Every move they make is an attempt to keep you in your porn “cell.”

You were once free, but, you have been taken captive. You are a prisoner of war. Your memories of freedom are in the distant past. They want you to become content with your captivity.

The truth is that the chains that bind you and keep you in subjection are merely an illusion in your own mind. The enemy relies on your strong desire to live in the fantasy world of porn rather than in the real world. And, up to now you have found the make believe world of porn more cheerful and gratifying than the real world.

The chains are made strong by neurotransmitters and hormones, chemicals, within your own brain. These chemicals build the urge to watch more porn, they cause excitement to grow within you, and they create emotional bonds between you and the people you see on the computer screen.

But, you won’t win if only your wife wants you to quit. You won’t gain the victory if your parents tell you to stop watching porn. No.  To break these chains you must become committed to escape the fantasy world. The make believe world of porn is merely an illusion intended to keep you occupied and away from reality.

Be committed to your freedom and never forget that you are in a war with a cunning and deceptive enemy. They make billions of dollars a year from their captives. They will do everything in their power to hold on to you even though you fight them tooth and nail.

Step 2: Learn About the Tactics of the Enemy

The more you know about the enemy and the tactics of  your opponent, the better prepared you will be to defend yourself and finally overpower the enemy. You will not win this war without gaining a total victory over the opposition.

Your enemy has a battle plan. He uses known tactics and strategies. And, he never varies his plan, no matter who he is trying to overcome and subdue.

This makes him vulnerable.

You must make time to learn about the enemy and understand his techniques. You can then recognize when your opponent is about to strike so you can take appropriate precautions.

So, what are the tactics and weapons the enemy employs? While there are many, here are a few for you to understand right off the bat:

  • Images and Sounds  Believe it or not, this is all the enemy can throw at you. This is his only real weapon. Everything else the enemy uses is inside your own body.
  • The Coolidge Effect This is how your mind reacts to varied sexual stimulation. It turns the 15 minutes you wanted to watch into hours and hours of porn watching.
  • Dopamine A neurotransmitter that is part of the mind’s “Reward System” that creates the urge that compels you to watch porn.
  • Oxytocin A hormone that helps increase emotional bonding, even with virtual porn floozies.

The more you know about these and other weapons of the enemy, the better prepared you will be to win this war and crush the enemy.

Step 3: Don’t Wage War Alone

It’s always fun to watch an old war movie with John Wayne. You can picture John Wayne coming over the hill and taking on a machine gun nest single-handed. Or, how about any James Bond movie? James Bond is practically a one-man army who is able to defeat an entire enemy organization without help.

Real life, unfortunately, isn’t like that. We all want to be Superman, able to take on anything single handed. But, we are not that strong. We need help.

In reality, it is not reasonable for you to take on the entire porn industry by yourself. You need help, too.

Help can come from a mental health professional who specializes in porn addiction. You can work with a mental health professional on a one-on-one basis or in a group therapy setting.

You can join an established group of people who are fighting porn addiction. Some of these groups use a modified 12-step program similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. These 12-step programs will encourage you to seek help from a higher power: God. Several such groups are:

You can use online resources to help you break free. A number of resources have been created by mental health professionals who have extensive experience helping those addicted to porn. You can watch a free video about how one such professional can help you Break Porn Addiction.

Get help from someone. You don’t have to wage war alone. Many have tried to fight alone and have failed. You may be one of them. So, get help today. Don’t wage this war alone.

Step 4: Take Defensive and Offensive Actions

Establish a defensive line to prevent your enemy from overpowering you.

Then only weapons that enemy posses are images and sounds. You must prevent the enemy from using images and sounds to further infect your mind. You must erect an impenetrable barrier to prevent the enemy from inflicting any more damage.

This defensive action will involve cutting the enemy’s lines of communication by which he delivers images and sounds to your mind.

Every victory requires sacrifice. You will need to make sacrifices in order to win this war. Here is what you need to do to establish a barrier to the weapons of the enemy:

  • If you can, cancel your Internet service. Prevent the enemy from invading your home.
  • If you must retain your Internet connection for your children to do assignments or for work, add web filtering software. Make sure someone who is not affected by porn has the password for the software. And, remember that computers are only one way of accessing porn on the Internet. Make sure any filtering software can work on any handheld devices including phones or tablets that can access the Internet.
  • Use your commitment and determination to winning this war to prevent you from accessing porn on other devices outside your home.

Do not let the enemy get in another menacing attack. Defend yourself by cutting all lines of communication today.

Now, your offense will target the effects of years of porn watching on your mind. The first target is the emotional bonds you have formed with the porn floozies. The second target is the programming of your mind that established the association between  pleasure or enjoyment and porn. Successful action against both targets is essential to the success of the mission.

Take the offense by strengthening the emotional bonds with your wife and children. Hug them, kiss them, spend time with them. As you spend more time with them, the emotional bonds between you and your family will strengthen and the bonds between you and the porn floozies will weaken.

Take the offense by engaging in activities that give you enjoyment. Take up a hobby, take a class in a subject you enjoy, participate in a sport, join a club, spend time as a volunteer. As you train or condition your brain to associate enjoyment with activities other than porn, you will weaken the pleasure-porn association and strengthen new, more productive, associations.

Finally, take offensive action to combat a poor self image. People who suffer with low self esteem often find porn a fast and easy way to happiness.

Your commitment to these defensive and offensive campaigns will ensure your ultimate victory in your war with porn.
