4 Signs You Have A Porn Addiction

While there are a lot of things much worse to find yourself addicted to than porn, porn addiction is real. Most guys would probably readily admit an addiction to porn—jokingly, of course. But apparently, porn can become a vice similar to alcohol or drug use. Wow. Who would've thought that a few thousand X-rated movies stored on your hard drive would be an indicator of a porn addiction? That stack of dirty magazines dating from the mid-1980s may be an indicator as well. All joking aside, here are four signs you have a legitimate porn addiction.

Porn hoarding. Apparently that mountain of dirty magazines is a sign of a porn addiction. There is no real reason to have porn magazines in 2011. You can have all the porn you want if you have a laptop and an Internet connection. Hoarding can still occur in the virtual world, however. If you find yourself spending hours upon hours using search engines to download and store porn on your laptop, you may have a problem. Hoarding can also show itself in the form of subscription after subscription to porn for pay sites.

Porn, porn everywhere. If you can't get away from porn, even just for a little while, you have a porn addiction. If you have porn on your laptop, porn on your smartphone and you still have the need to carry around magazines in your briefcase, seek help. Another sign is when porn begins to take up more and more of your day. Ask yourself this: What's your relationship with porn. If you spend time, only on the weekends, watching porn, you're probably OK. If, however, you've seen the time spent on porn increase over a period of time, you're addicted.

Internet-addiction

Getting in the way. If you find yourself replacing your normal activities with porn, you have a problem. You used to hang out with friends, but now you're hanging with your laptop. Porn addiction is like any other addiction. You replace aspects of your previous life with this addiction and, gradually, there's nothing but the addiction left. Coming to work late because of porn, not being able to even start your day without porn or sneaking to watch porn on your smartphone in the bathroom are all signs of an addiction.

Really serious. If, by chance, you lose something serious like a job or a relationship over porn and you continue to seek that porn for refuge, you're definitely addicted. Any other addict will do the same thing with their addiction. The very thing that has destroyed their lives is the very thing they continue to run back to. Replace your porn addiction with heroin, crack, alcohol and you'll see very similar results. Hopefully your addiction to porn never gets this severe. Ask yourself right now: As you read this, do you have two or three other windows open for porn viewing? Maybe you should cut back.
