Porn Addiction Counseling

Have you felt like fighting a porn addiction is like fighting a losing battle?

Has porn addiction been causing major turbulence in your relationships?

Do you often find yourself turning to pornography when you are bored, lonely, or stressed?

Has pornography often been the goto option that you choose even when you could have sex with your spouse or partner?

If you said yes to any of these questions, it’s definitely time to consider support options to get out of the hole. One thing that you should know is that you are not the only one who has these challenges.  Among men, issues with pornography are like an unspoken habit that everybody has, but no one wants to talk about.

Unfortunately, this is the reason that many of us never get help! We continue to suffer in our marriages and relationships because we are embarrassed or don’t feel good about getting help.  Our philosophy at Aspire is that “porn is the norm.”  It is by no means unusual for a large percentage of the male population to indulge in the use of pornography.  This does not make it right, but it makes the subject real.

How Porn Addiction Affects Relationships

One sure sign of knowing that pornography has a grip on you is when she starts to complicate your relationship. In many cases as long as you are not cheating or running up a bill, pornography use can be kept under the radar, seemingly causing few complications in the relationship. Women often do not see their partner’s use of porn as a bid deal until it’s too late.  As the relationship becomes more intimate, pornography progressively becomes more of a concern.  When things start to get serious in your relationship pornography becomes a concern. Many times the only reason it doesn’t become a concern is that your partner or spouse is not completely aware of the full routine.

 

56 Percent of Divorces Involve A Spouse With Porn Use

According to a study by research by Dr. Jill C Manning,  56 percent of divorces involve one spouse (almost always the man) having an obsessive interest in online porn. Fifty-six percent!! More than half of all marriages that end, porn is a key feature. It helps out divorce.

Psychology Today says that compared with faithful spouses, adulterers are more than twice as likely to be regular viewers of online porn. I have pornography addiction start off as a small compromise, and I have counseled tons of men who progressively and unintentionally ended up cheating on their spouses.

If you have been battling porn addiction you are not alone. Pornography is frequently used in internet searches. As a matter of fact,  20 percent of mobile device searches are for porn.

Why can’t I Over Come My Porn Addiction?

Many times it is important for us to focus less on trying to stop pornography and more on understanding why we may use porn in the first place. Quitting a Pornography Addiction is often like quitting an alcohol addiction, drug addiction, gambling addiction, and addiction in general. Once you stop, you move to something else that can be equally dysfunctional and sometimes worse and less you are coached through this process

Pornography is real, but the reality that is produced inside of the mind while viewing pornography it’s fiction.  It is really easy to get caught up in the fantasy of a sexual encounter with a porn star, but believe it or not, strong use of pornography is most often an implication that there are unresolved issues that need to be put to rest with the support of a pro.

Pornography Addiction Is There Hope?

When asked this question, it is always better to speak with someone who has experienced freedom. It’s almost like asking the question about becoming financially free. If you were seeking advice, who do you feel might best answer this question, someone who has never experienced financial freedom, or someone who has been broke, but then learned what it takes to become financially free?

Thank God, I am free, and because I have experienced that freedom it is only natural that I would want others to experience it too. I know what it’s like to be trapped. I know what it’s like to be unable to shake impure thoughts. I have experienced the shame and guilt of making promise after promise to myself to stop while seeming to have control of everything else in my life, accept this.

Most addictions are more easily broken when you have help.
