Pornography addiction is more often than not, the elephant in the room. It is one of the most common addictions around, but it is also the addition that is the most difficult to talk about and seek help for. Pornography addiction, just like the other types of sexual addition, is a struggle for many individuals and it has played a major role in the destruction of many families.
Did you know that viewing pornography has played a major role in the staggering divorce statistics in our country? According to Psychology Today, around 500,000 marriages fail every year due to one partner’s obsessive viewing of pornography. Pornography itself is often bad enough, but what people don’t realize is that it can open your marriage up to other, more hurtful behaviors. For instance, viewing pornography makes a spouse a whopping 300% more likely to cheat on his or her partner.
Many people don’t understand pornography addiction. They believe that it is something that can be stopped at will, but just like any other addiction, it can be difficult (often impossible) to move past your addiction without additional help. The first step to recovery, which can sometimes be the hardest, is to admit that there is a problem in the first place.
No one wants to admit that they have a problem, and seeking treatments for sex addiction can be embarrassing and it can make us feel ashamed, but it is your best bet to overcoming your addiction.
