Quit Pornography Addiction
I remember when I first discovered internet porn - I was 17 years old. In How to Quit Porn we take a look at the science of porn to uncover what makes it so alluring, the possible pitfalls of consuming too much, and how to kick the habit for good. The men comprising this group usually started using internet porn at a young age and have been using it for a while.
Please help me to never commit the sins of pornography and masturbation ever again. This is precisely what the apostle Paul says: the desires of the flesh are real and they are against the things God commands (Galatians 5:16), even in the life of a Christian.
The same goes for homosexuality; God won't just change the fact that it's sin and still say in the Bible that it is. That would be pretty darn confusing lol (I know that my murder example doesn't exactly replicate your homosexuality example; I was just showing how that wouldn't work).
When you try to quit at this point, you begin to experience strong withdrawal symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, irritability, extreme daytime fatigue, headaches, problems sleeping and social anxiety- worrying more than often about peoples opinions.
I've seen some great videos of couples engaging in intimate and respectful sexual encounters - of course, these are often only found on feminist porn sites or in the female friendly” category (It's interesting to note what the category name female friendly” implies about all the other categories).
Once you have decided to quit pornography, its' time to take that decision to a higher level. So, I deleted every single porn on my laptop and phone, removed any sexual related bookmarks from browser, installed a stay focus and porn block extension on my browser.
Even if you're not watching porn at work, the fact of the matter is that if you're sharing files between home and work via email, flash, or even using your home computer for work purposes; you stand a good chance of sharing some of the nasties that crawl onto your device through these sites.
During the absence of PMO, a sexual act with a partner stimulates the release and increase of Testosterone Masturbation doesn't actually provide the same release, which means your body may be experiencing the release that it needs but without all the important benefits.
The more a porn user conditions their brain to respond to digital stimulus, the more that person begins to desire more and more of the fantasy sex portrayed on screen, and no longer gets as much sexual pleasure from a real woman who may not look or act like a XXX porn star.
But think about it this way: if you see yourself as a guy who has to try really, really hard not to look at porn, instead of as a guy who just doesn't look at porn because he's got other interests, you're in for a real slog through life. I recognize all the bad aspects of a porn addiction, I have no doubt it's destroying my life, that it is blocking true potential, but it is sooooo hard to find strength.
I believe there is nothing nofap to be gained through feelings of shame around our sexual responses; and that the dark side of eros has something to teach us. We all of us carry what has been termed the shadow within us, and integrating that is key to our humanity.
