10 thoughts on “Am I Addicted to Porn? 6 Symptoms of Porn Addiction

    • That’s good. But I think a lot of it depends on how much porn and sexual sin you have been into. I am 48 and remember looking at porn magazines when I was like 11 or 12 or something. This was also coupled with being friends with the foster kids of (what we would find out later) the town child molester. So I was also sexually molested at that time too. I guess we could say that I was hyper-sexualized at a young age. I didn’t have any real romantic relationships in high school, and certainly no healthy ones. So porn was it for me. This only morphed later in life into paying for sexual experiences of almost all kinds. I don’t want to get into it here because I don’t want to make anyone struggle, but I did quite a lot of different things. Anyway, I still struggle with porn here and there mostly because I feel lonely and bored–big flags of addiction.
      Good luck with your 40 day program. Mine helped me a lot to look back and examine my life.

  1. sometimes trying to get rid of porno but it doesn’t work and I feel so frustrate and shameful .I have tryed it several times and am a ever ready to do anything possible to stop if there is anyway to do so

  2. I’m a full blown porn addict,I watch porn every day every chance I get. the temptation is like a tidal wave that I cannot stop. I have tried to quit mulptiple times but I cannot go more than a few days without relapsing. it’s like knowing that I am chronically addicted makes me more aroused and makes me want to watch even more porn! I just can’t stop.

  3. Is this a religious website? Because the notion that requiring “a healthy relationship with God” to help you kick porn addiction is utterly ridiculous. Everyone says you can believe what you want to believe, but not when it comes to these 12-step programs. Do you understand how many people are being pushed away by that one line? The ability to quit porn addiction is within everyone. You don’t need to credit a fake deity with work that you’ve done. We are beyond.

    • To Chris McKenna,
      I am taken aback by your curt response to Bob H. He came here for a reason…there are no “coincidences”, right?

      To Bob H., welcome, I’m glad you asked that question. Come as you are and continue asking questions but keep an open mind about all of this. If you are questioning whether or not you may be a porn addict, then may I suggest staying away from it for say, 40 days. Go ahead and put the Covenant Eyes filter on your devices and do your level best to document your behavior via pencil and paper…including the number of times you uninstall the CE filter so you can watch porn. Then with all that data in hand, sit down and take an honest self-appraisal of yourself, your emotions, your anxiety level, and your relationship with porn.

      Finally, whether you like it or not I will be praying for you. Why? Because it helps me too…gets me out of myself and gets my mind off my “stuff”. Also, Christ calls us to “…bear one another’s burdens”. You are not alone anymore my friend. Don’t forget that!
      Patrick

    • Hi, Patrick – you’re correct (and to Bob). My apologies. I completely misread the comment and should not have responded the way that I did. I ask for your forgiveness.

      Chris

  4. I recently became free of pornography. Through reading of the Book of Mormon daily along with an article every day about porn addiction. I could only accomplish this with God’s help and strength. I want to let all people know there is hope and success through God and his atonement.
