It is always a different story when it comes to breaking habits, most people think about will power or persistence then try to use those two forces to get over the habit only to find themselves failing. Will power fluctuates wildly and that you will hardly have the same level of self control everyday or even throughout the day.
Today I’m going to be going over how to quit or stop watching p0rn0graphy. So how to quit or stop watching p0rnography, you want to be able to ask yourself why you’re doing it first. I think the first step you should be learning is just ask yourself why you’re doing this.
What’s the reason you want to watch porn? is it because you’re depressed or because you’re empty? Just ask yourself why do I want to watch porn, first. I think that’s the key. The very first step, obviously is just to admit that you have a problem with it.
Now when it comes to P0rn addiction the problem that most people face is that they are connected 24/7 to the internet and so it’s easy for them to relapse as soon as they encounter a trigger. So what’s the solution to that problem?
It’s all about the environment and your availability
– Does your environment promote watching p0rn?
– Do you stay alone a lot?
– Do you rarely hangout with friends?
– Do you have problems with your social life?
One of the best ways to end p0rn addiction is to make changes to your environment so that it becomes harder to watch p0rn. If for example you prevented internet access inside your room and only made it possible to access the internet in a more exposed place you will be reducing the chance of watching p0rn.
Of course this is a minor action but when you add more of those minor actions , so that it becomes harder for you to watch p0rn, you will increase your chance of quitting. The biggest problem with p0rn is the ease of access and so if you made some changes that made access to p0rn harder your chance of quitting will become much higher.
Next you need to keep yourself busy. When it comes to addiction getting yourself busy works very well. By simply having a busy and interesting social life there will be less time for p0rn and so quitting this habit will become much easier.
More leads to more
So many people mistakenly think that when they watch p0rn they release their sexual desire but what really happens is that those people actually increase their sexual frustration by doing so. When you watch p0rn you become sexually frustrated, even if you masturbate.
The visual images you have seen will lie at the back of your mind then sooner or later those visual images might become triggers on their own and force you to crave p0rn. In other words each time you watch p0rn you make the matter worse as you reinforce the habit.
Also trying installing a p0rn blocker. I believe that the moment you try to watch p0rn and you couldn’t, then you may realise how it feels when you’re restricted to do something bad and you would immediately back off. Don’t hide that you have to quit or stop watching p0rnography and things like that.
