Here are five reasons why you should combat your Addiction:
1. Get to know Pornography for what it is.
Pornography is the depiction of sexually explicit materials with the interest of making the viewer or reader, sexually aroused. Pornographic Addiction is a model of compulsive sexual activity with concurrent use of pornographic material, despite negative consequences to ones physical, mental, social and financial well-being.
2. Pornography comes in shades
Wearing glasses protects one’s eyes from reflection or hides ones injury in the eyes, different shades for the varying amount of reflection your eyes can handle. You can choose the amount of reflected pornography that your eyes/ears receive; literatures, magazines, audio’s, videos, verbal speech e.t.c, so in your form of entertainment, select your sexual innuendo can handle. Try to avoid watching, listening or reading materials that might promote sex. Filter your eyes.
3. Pornography affects your morals
The morality of an individual decreases overtime. Those exposed attach more value to casual sex and show greater acceptance of premarital sex. Pornography damages the sexual performance of the viewers; it tends to develop problems with premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction in males. Pornography raises the demand for types and amount of sexual experiences, at the same time reduce the ability to experience it. Statistics as compiled in the 2015 porn status show that marriage mates that tend to watch porn are 218% more likely to commit adultery. Analysis also shows that pornographic material puts one on increased risk of developing sexual violent tendencies; commit sexual offence, accepting rape myth and so on.
4.Those who produce have not your best interests at heart
“Instead of having sex education be boring, be technical… I’d rather have us educate our children to be critical consumers who see porn”, Dr Christian, a sex researcher of Aalborg University. Many movies watched e.g. Addicted 2014; frequent stories read and heard show that when one is exposed to sexual images or even intercourse at a young age leaves many exposed to a very wrong view of sex. First image on sex/ sensual images left in the brain of any child/teen/adult are never satisfied especially if no sex education is being given. Granted thanks to use of internet and updated technology use, one cannot filter completely porn but sex education comes first rather than having being introduced to affect our mental emotional state.
5. You love yourself
Because you love and care about yourself, never give up. Loving one self and knowing for all right reasons you need to fight these feelings, I know you will work hard, really hard to create a covenant with your eyes, ears and mind. Do not give up the fight. Believe in yourself. You can break free today.
