5 steps to quit porn addiction

Porn Addiction is often treated only as a bad habit, till it becomes the main reason your life is miserable, your professional career is at stake, and your social relationships are no longer found.


The sad truth is addicts only search for a solution when their whole life is messed up, and they can't either keep consuming porn or stop, only then do they think about quitting porn addiction!


Here are five main steps to help you quit porn addiction, hopefully forever, and you'll be on the right track to reclaiming your health, and well-being.


1) Decide who you want to be:


The first step to quitting porn is to decide who you want to be, and it's the first and most important step which most people never do.

Initially, it's hard to imagine your life without the thing you relied heavily on to relieve stress and tension, but as you keep going, it will get easier over time. You'll feel great about yourself, motivating you to keep going.

Setting a clear vision of who you want to be is key to succeeding and achieving any goal.

Exercise: Sit down and write on a piece of paper the ideal version of yourself, keep it handy, and read it often; clarity equals success!


2) Know the price:


Nothing in life is free; also healing from addiction isn't, you have to know that there is a price you have to pay in order to reclaim your health, energy, and well-being.

You'd have to tolerate a couple of days of physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms, build new healthy habits that will form a new lifestyle, quit the old ways of searching for relief, and fight your demons when they whisper: "do it"

In exchange for the price you'll pay, you'll get invaluable benefits and advantages that I won't tell you about now, I don't like to be a spoiler.


3) Set a goal:

The third step to quitting porn addiction is setting a goal; in the previous exercise you described who you want to be in your life; this is key, but it's easily forgettable.

So, here is another exercise: 

In this exercise what you need to do is set a goal, write it down, sign it, and put it on your wall or somewhere you will see it every day.

You need to make your goals real and hold yourself accountable.

Your goals of being porn free might be too revealing to put on your wall, but goals like: "To be the best version of myself" or "To be in control of my life and live to my highest standards" will do good.

You can also make it goal specific like; "living my life as I wish to through financial literacy"


4) Find your WHY?

The most important step in ending your porn and masturbation addiction is to simply find your why; why do you want to do this?

Most people never want to think about this, and thus they never end their porn addiction and get over it.

You need a strong "WHY" to achieve anything in life, the more powerful, the more likely you'll succeed.

So, why do you want to quit porn addiction?

> Are you losing your wife?

> Do you want to be the best version of yourself? 

> Do you want to start a family?

> Do you want to be no longer an addict?

> Do you want to reclaim your health and well-being?

> Do you want to build healthy relationships?


Find you why and you'll succeed, make it as deep and emotionally connected as possible.

Find the why that makes you cry!


5) Accept failure:

The fifth step to getting rid of porn addiction is accepting failure as part of the healing process.

Along this journey, you're going to be tempted as never before, and you're going to struggle, and through the fire, you're going to come out a better man.

But, along the way you're going to take hits, experience setbacks, and feel discouraged, prepare for this now!

No one who is truly addicted to porn can just stop and never look back; almost everyone relapses.

The point is; it's okay, it's a natural part of recovery, and I used to beat myself about it so bad, but this guilt is useless.

The guilt you get from masturbating only stacks another negative onto the one you just committed, it's useless.

Be okay with your setbacks and understand that it's a part of the journey.

Be proud of yourself for almost not doing it, and understand that in a month you'll almost not do it even more until almost not doing it becomes not doing it.

The point is; it's a process and looking at it from an outside perspective is key.

Every time you relapse just start the counter over, and you never start again from zero, you never go back to the start, so don't feel like you've wasted your time or effort.

Every relapse is just a checkpoint in a video game you failed, but you never go back to the start; it starts a new journey, and guilt or discouragement won't help.

In the end, I want to congratulate you for being bold and courageous enough to start this journey, and I'm sure you'd be a much greater person after reaching full recovery.
