Internet Porn Addiction And Online Distractions

porn internet addiction

People who want to break free from internet porn addiction should use the internet only constructively and for only a few minutes each day, then disconnect and spend the rest of the day offline. This really is the healthiest thing for them to do. Only people who have internet related jobs need to spend long periods of time on the net. Others don’t need to be online all day, especially if they are porn addicts.

In online fora like nofap & nofap reddit I often see people recommend installing software that blocks porn sites or disables images. This is tantamount to treating the symptoms and not the root. Self discipline is a deeper and more reliable option than censorship software. Be sure about what you want to go online for. Idle browsing is the enemy of a porn addict. He/She will eventually go to porn because he/she is basically biding time on equally unhealthy porn substitutes.

Measures like disabling images are only temporary as living in a bubble is untenable. If you have to protect yourself from images online because you fear triggering your addictions then you’re not truly free. Develop the discipline to stay online for a certain amount of time each day, then leave.
