Porn Addiction Help

Addiction to pornography refers to a compulsion to use pornographic images to the extent that the behavior itself has begun to interfere with a person’s ability to effectively manage his or her life on a day-to-day basis. The individual has become dependent on the use of pornography to get through each day. Porn Addiction Help can be here.

Like other addictions, pornography addiction can lead to negative consequences such as decreased productivity, social isolation, relationship problems, and financial difficulties. Individuals suffering from pornography addiction may spend excessive amounts of time viewing pornography, may find themselves unable to controlling this behavior, may experience withdrawal symptoms when trying to quit, and will often continue to use despite negative consequences.

For years I have struggled with the pendulum swinging from extreme to extreme with regard to my internet habits.  One moment I could be reading about improving my health and the next moment I would be scouring the web for yet another image for my lust to entertain some fantasy in my head. The great fork in the road usually is shame that leads me down this path.  I often think the only thing that will make me feel better is another lust hit to get me through the day.

What is Sexaholics Anonymous (SA)?

Sexaholics Anonymous (SA) is a twelve-step program designed to help people struggling with compulsive sexual behavior, including addiction to pornography, masturbation, and other sexual activities. SA is based on the same principles as Alcoholics Anonymous and other twelve-step programs and operates on the belief that sexual addiction is a disease that can be managed but not cured. The program encourages members to work through the steps, attend meetings, and connect with a sponsor who can provide guidance and support. SA also emphasizes the importance of abstinence from sexual behaviors that are harmful or disruptive to a member’s life. Overall, SA aims to provide a safe and supportive community where individuals can work toward recovery from their compulsive sexual behavior.
