Internet Porn Addiction and the unlived life

Within each teenager and man who is addicted to internet porn, there is an unlived life that is waiting to be tapped into and expressed. Internet Porn Addiction stops people from fully living their life and it blocks emotions, creativity, love, sexual expression and masculinity.

Internet porn addiction has an enormous impact on a man’s life, work, relationships and sexual performance. Studies are showing the real impact of porn addiction on the brain, how it changes the structure, released chemicals which support and encourage the addiction and it becomes the normal behaviour pattern. The good news is by quitting porn these changes are reversible.

Internet porn addiction and excessive use numbs – from your emotions, creativity, sexual expression and energy and how you experience life. Your brain becomes wired differently. You seek out more extreme and novel porn to keep aroused and entertained. Sex with your partner becomes boring, dull or you may experience erectile dysfunction or delayed ejaculation.

It impacts emotional well-being and many men who are addicted to internet porn also experience depression, anxiety and social anxiety. They underperform on all levels of life. They only half show up in relationships. They choose to hide in their bedroom engaged with porn rather than engaged with life.

Porn addiction suppresses a man’s full potential and growth. Men sacrifice their life, gifts, talents and abilities to use porn. However within each of these men is an unlived life waiting to be explored and expressed. The unlived life of who they truly are.

I have been privileged to work with men who want to quit porn. The impact on their lives is often devastating. The journey of quitting porn transforms their life. They begin to live again. To tap into their potential. To fully show up at work, in relationships and as the man they know they are deep down. They started to lived again.

Working with internet porn addiction is a passion of mine – as it’s so mainstream and having a huge impact on a man’s psyche – yet hardly anyone talks openly about it. It’s often dismissed by doctors and teenagers and men get caught up in the addictive behaviours of porn addiction.

Boys as young as ten are watching porn – can you imagine if these boys were drinking or using drugs – society would have an uproar. Now is the time for schools, parents and families to be educated by internet porn addiction. In a few years, these boys will be men and if they continue to use porn the effect it will have on them and the impact upon society will be devastating.

Internet porn takes so much more than it gives.
