Porn addiction • Depression • Suicide

The effects and even the occurrence of porn addiction itself is widely downplayed by society.

It requires tremendous courage, strength and faith to stand tall and admit to one self that there is an enemy in my life, that enemy is addiction and I will fight it off!

The following effects of frequent internet porn use is as real as the people that struggles with them.

Severe clinical depression is twice as common among internet porn users compared to non-users.

56% of all divorce cases involve one party having an obsessive interest in pornographic websites. Source

58% suffer considerable financial losses.

One third lose their jobs.

It’s 23 times more occurring among sexual addicts and sexual compulsives to state that:

Discovering online sexual material is the worst thing to ever happen in their life. Source

The suicide rate for persons suffering from clinical depression is 20% above the general population.

Every single day ten divorced men commit suicide.

As stated above 56% percent of those men are divorced because of internet porn use.

This is not the reality most people are aware of when doubting those that struggle every day to never watch porn again.

As the statistics show, frequent porn use dramatically increases the risk for clinical depression and divorce. Two major underlying factors leading up to suicide.

The way porn robs you from joy and even have the ability to trigger anxiety and depression is by the hijacking of your natural reward system.

By dumping an extreme amount of dopamine. That robs you from well-earned joy in other areas of life, because the dopamine released by those activities cannot even compare to the levels of porn.

The addictive pattern itself by escaping and self-medicating with porn usage causes anxiety and a weakened self-image etc, so the need for true joy is massive to turn the table but since regular activities that usually generate feelings of joy are no longer enough for the hijacked reward system, it is much harder to find a way to turn the tables.

This traps people in the downward spiral towards a rapidly escalating addiction.

Any addiction feed the addicted person with:

  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Remorse
  • Isolation
  • A decaying hope
  • Loss of self-worth

This is along with the addictive pattern itself responsible for the fact that most of the people hide this as a secret for years and sometimes decades, even after they decide they want to quit. The guilt and shame are to massive to deal with on one hand, on the other hand they are failing over and over to quit on their own, which only intensifies the guilt and shame.

Sadly, this end in suicide for many people.
