How to Stop Viewing Porn

Pornography is a life destroyer; it steals your time, ruins your relationships, and breeds discontentment in your sex life. When you’re stuck in a habitual cycle of giving in to temptation, breaking the cycle can be difficult. However, it’s not impossible, and there are several steps you can take to beat the addiction.

Recognize Your Triggers
When you’re feeling tempted to view pornography, think about what triggered the temptation. Was it a movie you watched? Did you read a lusty novel? Perhaps you visited a location that is frequented by scantily clad guests. Try to avoid the things that trigger temptation. If you view pornography because you’re stressed, find alternative ways to relieve the stress.

Resist for a Cause
Think of why you want to stop. How is it hurting you? Is it affecting your social life or your family? Are you wasting too much time or money? Is it against your religion? Is it killing your self-esteem? Make a list with your top reasons; meditate on the list when you’re feeling tempted.

Take Charge of the Computer
Remember, you are in control of the computer; it does not control you. Purge your computer of anything pornography related. Resign your memberships to porn sites, and change your email address to elude advertisements from them. Avoid being alone with the computer by moving it to a public area in your house, or use the computers at your public library. Install pornography filters, and resist any temptation to turn them off. You may have to rid yourself of the computer altogether.

Ask for Help
Not everyone wants to ask their significant other to hold them accountable. If you don’t think you can ask your partner, seek out a trusted friend. Check in with them each day. Tell them about your triggers and difficulties, show them your list of reasons for stopping, and let them know when you fail and when you succeed. If possible, ask them to keep an eye on your computer history and any purchases made with your credit card.

It took some time to form your habit; it will take some time to recover. When you stumble, don’t beat yourself up. Instead, be encouraged that you tried, and take your endeavors a step further next time. Don’t let shame stop you. Use every failure as an opportunity to remember that you are better than your addiction.

    i am worried that excessive masturbation is effecting my moods.

    i broke up with my girlfriend, and ‘filled the void’ by masturbatiing. it stops me from feeling lonely – for however briefly.

    when i am able to stop masturbating for an extended time, i feel less depressed and more energetic.

    i feel that masturbation depresses me and drains my energy. at worst, i masturbate over 5 times per day. after a week or longer i get very depressed – which makes me feel lonely – the cycle continues.

    i feel i have a big problem and i am getting desperate. please help me deal with being lonely by escaping into a fantasy by masturbating.

    can over masturbation make me feel depressed/anxious.

    please help! 🙁
