Cure Porn Addiction – Can It Be Done?

Is it possible to cure porn addiction? This is a question many have asked, and the definition of cure can vary a great deal. Some are looking for a one shot pill or trick that will switch things over instantly which will never happen – but other realise a cure for something like this will take some time. However many people continue to look for quick fixes to life’s problems and continue to be disappointed even when there are some things that seem to offer something similar.

Some other psychological disorders do have drugs that can help actually such as depression and anxiety. However, even these drugs are not cures – because as soon as you stop taking them the problems return. They simply mask the symptoms of a problem and do not eliminate it. That takes more time, just like kicking an addiction to porn will.

I consider there to be a number of factors you can do to cure porn addiction, but it is a process that you need to go through that will target a number of things in your life.

There are a number of factors that go into a proper, long term strategy to cure porn addiction. This is a very brief overview of a fairly complex subject, but gives you a vague idea of the process.

  • Internal Factors – This is everything inside of your mind. This is the very psychological things to do with your insecurities, your weaknesses, your fears, and the behaviours and neural pathways that are formed because of these things.
  • External Factors – These are the things out of your control most of the time. This is the situation you are in, the people around you, the stresses that force their way into your life and many other factors that you can at most influence – and at worst simply have to suffer with no control.
  • Diet & Exercise – This is more important than you might think. What you put into your body does not just affect your physical health, but can make an impact on your mental health as well. Certain diets and foods are beneficial to giving you motivation and feeling good without needing so much stuff like porn to give you a high. Other foods can actually make you crave it more. Exercise is also something that has always helped those with psychological disorders balance the hormones and brain chemicals need for a healthy mind.
