Pornography addiction is a disturbingly prevalent and increasing problem in modern day culture. This multi-billion dollar industry makes every effort to invade our lives with images, videos, and various intellectual properties.
The wide range of images and videos available with easy access to the internet can start with simple curiosity, that can quickly transform into an obsessive-compulsive cycle. As this pattern starts to develop in your mind and affect your brain chemistry it can start to affect your choices, behavior, and relationships.
Pornography addicts can start to withdraw from the important relationships in their lives. This can be a mixture of needing to consume pornographic images with increasing frequency, as well as a growing sense of shame.
Some pornography addicts will attempt to act out some of the images and scenes they view. This can cause you to treat a spouse in ways that violate their sense of self-respect and self-esteem, or it could also lead to the moral violation of infidelity.
