5 STAGES OF PORN ADDICTION


  • EARLY STAGE: Most men who are addicted to porn start early. The are exposed to it when they are very young.
  • ADDICTION: This is the second stage. At this stage you keep coming back to pornography. It becomes a regular part of your life. You're hooked. You can't quit.
  • ESCALATION: After a while of being addicted, escalation begins. At this stage you start to look for more and more graphic porn. You start looking at porn that would have disgusted you when you started. Now it excites you.
  • DESENSITIZATION: I pray you never get to this stage. Because this is where you start to become numb. Even the most degrading porn doesn't excite you anymore. You become desperate to feel the same thrill again but TOO LATE! It's gone. This stage of pornography addiction and the previous stage is caused by a VERY HIGH LEVEL of pleasure chemicals (DOPAMINE) in the brain. This constant surge of dopamine REWIRES the brain's REWARD PATHWAY, ultimately changing the make up of your brain.
  • ACTING OUT SEXUALLY: At this point, many men take a dangerous jump and start acting out sexually. They move from the paper and plastic images of porn to the real world.

Porn kills you slowly, even though you may not know


LOOK HERE MAN! YOUR BRAIN NEEDS TO HEAL, OR ELSE YOU'RE DONE FOR.

By watching pornography, new neuro-pathways are laid down in your brain. The more you view, the stronger the neuro-connections and the more difficult it is to stop.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU CANT STOP! You can REBUILD these pathways by avoiding pornography and seeking healthy alternatives.

There are basically two ways of REBUILDING these pathways:

FACTORY RESETTING:

In order to protect itself, the brain reduces its number of dopamine receptors in response to the surge of dopamine that comes with constant use of pornography.

For the brain to heal, you need to restore these lost dopamine receptors. The process of doing this is called "factory resetting." Don't worry about it... it's just a metaphor. You remember how factory reset works on your phone, right? Good.

During this factory reset phase you need to stay away from anything...I mean ANYTHING that can stimulate you sexually, like erotic novels, pornography, twerking videos, sex shows, obscene publications, and so on. 

MANUAL OVERRIDING:

This process involves replacing the bad habit of watching pornography with a good habit.
For instance, if you're in the perfect situation to watch porn, instead of just going ahead to watch it, you can play your favourite game to keep your mind away from the thought. Or maybe you'll just read a good book instead. Just do something that'll grab your attention enough to make the urge go away.

 

TIPS ON HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY DO THE FACTORY RESET, MANUAL OVERRIDE AND LEAVE PORN FOR GOOD!


DEAL WITH YOURSELF:  

This is where the bulk of the work is, because it has a lot to do with YOU... your MINDSET. As I have mentioned earlier, the only secret to habit implementation is HAVING THE WILL TO FOLLOW THROUGH WITH YOUR INTENTIONS. 

A person once told me that every time he decides to quit pornography, counter thoughts always comes to his mind. Thoughts like: Is it possible for me to quit? Is it possible to let go of that pleasure of seeing beautiful ladies nude?
That intense pleasure is what he's afraid of losing. He obviously has given PORNOGRAPHY more POWER than it should have. And I know you must have given it that power, too.

How do you counter this?

You must have seen people perform stage magic, even if it is in films. Now, imagine that the audience know the tricks behind these magics, do you think they'll still be awed by its performance?? Definitely NO. AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TO PORNOGRAPHY.

This is the reason I explained what porn does to your brain earlier, how it tricks your brain into releasing the dopamine that gives you pleasure. Because once you know this, it will be easy for you to convince yourself that YOU CAN QUIT, that you HAVE TO QUIT, that the pleasure derived from porn is NOT ABSOLUTE, that the pleasure is mere TRICKERY.

Also, dealing with yourself involves deleting all pornographic files on your phone, PC, and anywhere else you must have stashed it. It requires that you block all porn-related sites on your phone or PC. This can done by changing your host files, by activating your phone or computer's parental controls.

40-DAYS RULE

What you have to do here is to manipulate yourself psychologically. I strongly believe 40 days is enough to form or break any habit. Here's how it works:

You're going to stop watching porn for 40 consecutive days no matter how hard it is.

To ensure success, you have to remember that your aim is NOT TO QUIT PORN FOREVER, but to put it on hold for JUST 40 days, AFTER WHICH YOU CAN GO BACK TO IT. This is because human beings are motivated by HOPE. For instance, the hope that he'll break his fast at a particular time is what keeps a fasting man going, the hope that you'll get a job sooner or later is what motivates you to apply for different job opportunities. Similarly, the hope that you'll go back to porn after 40 days will strengthen your forbearance within those days.

Trust me, after 40 days, your brain would have rewired itself automatically into believing you do not need porn. Try this sincerely and you'll see wonders.

If you're a Muslim, you might be thinking: why then do people go back to smoking, drinking, and so on after abstaining from them during the month of Ramadhan?

Here's the reason: people who go back to smoking after Ramadan never left the habit during the Ramadan. If you watch them carefully, you'll notice that most of them go back to that habit at some point during the month. Some may even drink/smoke after breaking their fasts in the evening. For these people, that "Ramadan righteousness" only lasts but a few days into the month.

MANAGE LOCATIONS:  

Pornography requires a good location, because you don't want others to SEE you in the act.

Watching porn requires two things: a catalyst and a place. The catalyst is what encourages you to view porn, while the place is where you want to view it.

Once you make sure that you're not present with THESE TWO THINGS at the SAME TIME, then you're on your way to overcoming the addiction.

So, here's what you need to do. You switch locations whenever the urge comes and the location feels right. For example, if you are alone in your room and the urge to watch porn comes knocking, go to the sitting room where everyone is, AND DONT TAKE YOUR PHONE WITH YOU if you don't need it for anything else.

Part of managing your location is to try to eliminate the privacy that normally encourages you to watch porn by moving your whole computer set up to a common area like the sitting room. This may only be a temporary measure as you are getting used to less porn.

And if you can't leave that location, then do away with the catalyst. Just make sure you're not present with those two things at the same time. If your phone is the catalyst, you may  have to switch it off or play your favourite game instead. You may even toss it aside and read a book instead. Just do something that takes your mind off it.

GO RELIGIOUS:  

Ask GOD for help. He is capable of ANYTHING. If you're a Muslim, follow the teachings of the Qur'an and that of the prophet (peace be upon him): lower your gaze and fast to rid yourself of evil thoughts. And if you're a Christian, you know what to do. Remind yourself constantly that there's punishment for every bad action and that God is very severe in His punishment. Spend time with righteous people, for their righteousness will rub off on you. Read the holy book as much as you can. WHEN FAITH ENTERS THE HEART, BAD HABITS LEAVES.

THERAPY

If you think you can't do this on your own, a mental health professional might be able to give you additional tips to cope with the difficulties of overcoming porn addiction. So if you decide to see one, you'll not be judged for having a problem.

On a final note, don't get too excited. There's no abracadabra to overcoming porn. As I have said earlier, it requires dedication, discipline and time. SO HELP YOU GOD. AMEN.

PS If someone you care about shows signs of a compulsion or addiction, it may be time to open the lines of NONJUDGMENTAL communication. RESPECT THE FACT THAT HE/SHE NEEDS HELP SINCERELY. BE COMPASSIONATE!
