Why overcoming porn addiction is hard

Overcoming porn addictionOvercoming porn addiction is a challenge for so many guys out there, and it seems like no matter how hard they try, it doesn’t stop.

Porn addiction could be one of the hardest addictions to overcome, and I believe many guys will agree with me, so in this article I’m going to show you why overcoming porn addiction is so hard, and how you can deal with this hardship.

Important: this article is written for the purpose of making you aware of the hardships that you may face while overcoming porn addiction, this article should NOT be used as an excuse to keep on with your porn addiction, overcoming porn addiction is hard, but it’s possible and necessary; take a look at this guy.

Why overcoming porn addiction is so hard?

1) We don’t talk about it:

nobody wants to say that I’m addicted to pornography, it’s too shameful! And we avoid it all together, and when we talk about it, we just assume that everybody does it and it’s not a big deal.

This way, the young kids who watch porn, won’t be aware of how porn is bad, and as a result, they won’t even want to stop watching porn, because they don’t think it’s bad or dangerous, in other words: watching porn is socially accepted to some degree, which makes it harder to quit it.

2) Porn is at our finger tips!:

with smart phones and laptops everywhere, and with millions (maybe billions) of porn sites, it’s very easy for anybody to access porn anywhere and anytime, and that’s definitely not helping.

3) Over sexualized media:

“sex sells”, this is how media these days work, just take a look at the music industry, Nicki Minaj, miley cyrus and many more, look at the movies, too much sex scenes than any time before.

Overcoming porn addiction can be nearly impossible with these things sitting next to you, don’t get me wrong, it’s possible, provided that you cut off these over sexualized videos and songs, you can’t overcome porn addiction while watching videos for nicki minaj or watching movies like fifty shades of grey!

You must stay away from such things, and don’t worry that your fiends will consider you weird for doing that, they’re already weird for watching porn.

 

4) We don’t want to stop:

sometimes the only reason we find it so difficult to overcome porn addiction is that we don’t want to stop!.
See this article for more information:

Why people fail to overcome addiction.

5) We use this list as an excuse:

We keep telling ourselves that we can’t stop watching porn because we’re living in an over sexualized society, porn is easily accessible for everybody 24/7 and that everybody is watching porn!

Those are lame excuses, none of that is true, as is said above, overcoming porn addiction is hard, but that’s not the reason that you can’t stop it, in fact, driving a car is hard, swimming is hard, when you was a baby, walking was a hard task for you, life is hard, success is hard and the list goes on.

Don’t make excuses, maybe the only thing stopping you from overcoming porn addiction is those excuses you make about how hard it is to do that

So, those are some of the most important reasons for why overcoming porn addiction is hard, please use this the right way.

Use it to NOT give up when things get harder, use it to know what you may face on your way and use it to prepare yourself for what’s coming, DON’T use it as an excuse to keep on watching porn, that’s NOT why I wrote this article.

Now, let’s find out how we can deal with all of this

Overcoming porn addiction is like success! Only those who are ready to do whatever it takes to reach it, will actually reach it, only those who really want it and willing to pay for it, will actually have it.

You have to go through some hardships first, and you need to make some sacrifices, and the only way to do that, is to get serious, let me explain.

How to conquer these hardships?

  1. Being addicted to pornographic can really be very deadly and the truth is that most don’t know this, we always see it as normal thing as you mentioned but if you allow yourself to become addicted to it, it will cause you so many harms in life.

    It will always prevent you from achieving your full potentials in life. This is why it is of utmost importance to stop it.

    Even though its usually hard to overcome addictions but, if you’re highly determined to overcome, you will.

    • Yes, it’s a very dangerous addiction, and we make the situation worse by underestimating it.
      And I agree with you, porn can limit your full potential, which makes it a necessity and a must to stop it, no matter how hard it’s.
