Help with internet porn addiction

recovery

Road to recovery.

Constant over-exposure to internet porn material can produce hidden brain changes that may lead to a feeling of emotional numbness, no motivation, morphing sexual tastes, lack of interest in real partners, social isolation, brain fog, social anxiety, uncharacteristic sexual fetishes, desire to act out porn scripts, suicidal ideation, erectile dysfunction and in some cases, escalation to illegal material. Most people would agree that these are unpleasant, unwanted and even dangerous effects, but there is a road back away from them through Recovery.

Recovery is a new phenomenon. The approach of The Reward Foundation is based on the fundamental insight of Gary Wilson – if you remove porn from your life, many physical and mental symptoms go away. Removing this one variable is the key.

The positive changes described are based on the personal reports of people who have tried giving up porn. Hundreds of recovery stories can be read at www.yourbrainonporn.com.

If you or someone you know has problems with Porn-Induced Erectile Dysfunction or any other sexual issue, it is always a good idea to visit your doctor to see if there is any underlying physical problem. Because many healthcare practitioners are unfamiliar with the research around this problem today, you may wish to suggest they look at the TEDx talk “The Great Porn Experiment” and at www.yourbrainonporn.com.

The Reward Foundation is not the only route to recovery from internet porn addiction. There are several other good, free, anonymous online recovery websites too. These are two communities we know, trust and recommend.
