    Internet porn addiction

    I am 28/M and addicted to internet porn. Whenever I surf internet, I surf porn. I am so addictive to it that whenever I log into internet, I can't help surfing porn sites. This leads to tremendous waste of time and money. After logging off, I realise that it was not correct and promise myself that it was the last time. But again whenever, I log onto net, after surfing some good sites, I can't resist the urge to get into the porn sites.

    Internet is a very usable source of information but if, only porn is surfed, it is a wastage. I tried to keep myself off from internet for several days as a punishment measure for myself. But nowadays one can't stay away from internet for long. Again the urge to surf porn pushes me towards the internet.

    I am getting irritated because of this habit as this habit doesn't want to be kicked. Pls help me to get rid of this habit and to save my own time, money and energy.

    Find other things to keep your mind off it.

    Keep your credit cards far away from the pc so that you're not tempted to pay for it.

    If all else fails. Seek help.

    Yes all men can agree that porn is addictive. You need to understand that it is all mental. You seem very weak mentally when it comes to porn. An addiction goes away only after you have withdraws from it.. except these withdraws are nothing like drugs or w/e. My suggestion would be to not USE your computer for more than a week. Find something else to do with your time. If you feel tempted to look up porn then that just shows how WEAK you are. Do you really want to think of yourself as THAT weak??

    I think the answer lies within you. You just need to make changes so that you would not be tempted to look at it. If you don't ever change anything, then how are you supposed to overcome it?

    You may find this website helpful. Part of the site is a message board similar to this, but the only topic there is overcoming porn addiction. There is a board for PA's (Porn Addicts) and a separate board for SO's (Significant Others)

    You may want to check biological rather than psychological reasons. See from there if there are any way to inhibit the addiction.

    The most basic instinct of human (male and female) is to have sex. Accept it ... thats the way you are genetically programmed and its normal to have a healthy drive. If you cannot find a girl then obviously masturbation is another option (your choice, obviously!). I dont see anything wrong with masturbation. Guy/girls in this forum probably with partners saying masturbation is for weak-minded, now that i dont understand (how hypocritical!).
    If you are spending too much money on it then it may be bad for your financial state or If it is affecting your life then also it is bad.
    How come too much sex is never bad?

    If you're serious about getting completely over your addiction and never using internet porn again, then I would reccomend seeing a hypnotherapist.

    Within a couple of hours you'd hate it.. but unless you're absolutely sure you want to never enjoy internet porn again, don't even consider it

    I don't see any reason it could be biological.. I view it only psycohological.. I just honestly can't see how viewing a porn site has anything to do with biological reasons. Could you offer any feedback while you think this?? Thanks..

    I would also like the reasoning behind that SA.

    I'm not aware of any genetic reasons that make us attracted to pornography..

    I'm sure mankind has been masturbating forever, fantasizing about some guy/girl ... Pornography just gives an easier way to fantasize.
    I dont see it necessarily as a bad thing if it helps you with your sexual release and keeps you from being a horny person.
