Stop using internet porn

Withdrawing from internet porn can be extremely challenging.

  1. Get as much information as you can about your problem. You could have a look at the your brain on porn website.
  2. You may need professional help. Possibly contact an organisation, such as sex addicts anonymous, or an experienced counsellor.
  3. Work out any uncomfortable feelings you have that make you want to look at internet porn. This could include stress, irritability, loneliness and many more. It is possible to find different ways of responding  to these.
  4. Replace porn use with naturally rewarding activities. These could include sports, hobbies, spending time with friends or family. Humans regulate mood better when they are interacting with each other.

Internet porn can cause issues for adolescents.

  • Sex with a partner doesn’t match up to the intense stimulation provided by internet porn. This can lead to sexual performance problems.
  • Unrealistic ideas about how human genitals look which can be distressing.
  • Extreme expectations of what constitutes a good sexual experience.
