PORN IS LIKE A DRUG

Get The Facts - Fight The New Drug

Porn is like A drug. Yes it is! Viewing pornography or engaging in cybersex chat may lead to addiction; it is because the brain releases a flood of chemicals such as dopamine, which gives the feeling of pleasure and it is similar to the effect of drugs. Just like drugs, you can build up a high tolerance in porn so there’s a possibility that a pornographer can become addicted and dependent the same a drug user does.

So how does it work? Deep inside our brain, there’s something called a “reward pathway. It begins in the center of the brain. Here, special neurons release dopamine, which give you a jolt of pleasure and make you feel good. In order to make sure you repeat this action in the future, the reward pathway is associated with areas of the brain that control memory and behavior, For example, the way you do masturbation, made you feel good, then you will be more likely to do it again, isn’t it? That’s what makes them addictive. And porn does the exact same thing.

Porn is like a sexual junk food.  Life is pleasurable without a little junk food, right? A little here is fun, succulent naughty pleasure, but eating too much is bad. It will cause lethargic behavior, weight issues and other serious diseases. The same goes for porn. Porn can be titillating and fun. I am not suggesting that you should now do it all but as they always say “Too much of anything is bad”. Excessive use of porn is de-sensitizing and numbing. It may cause some bad effects such as erectile dysfunction, decreased productivity, depression and even career loss.

Pornography and cybersex are meant to satisfy sexual impulse. For some these are the simplest part of becoming sexually aroused. Pro-pornography activists say that porn is harmless outlets for human, but in the contrary, the hard facts prove otherwise. Pornography becomes a habit –forming drug used as an escape from depression, anxiety, fear, aloneness, pain, rejection, abuse and other pressures in life. It provides quick ‘self-medication’. Porn promises a world jam-packed with sex—more sex, better sex. But porn often leads to less satisfying sex and can eventually mean no sex at all.

Porn-Addict (1)

There are drugs that are legal yet they were badly abused. Same thing for cocaine, meth, marijuana and others, these drugs are illicit yet due to the pleasure they bring to an individual they were used or abused. Just like porn, drug is used to escape from the misery of the world.

Porn is addictive, which leads to crime such as violence and rape. Well, the drug is also addictive and drug addiction leads to depression, anxiety, pain, rejection or it may even cause death. These kinds of addictions are a few of the problems that our society has. So, we need to be aware. Before I end this article, I have a question for you. After knowing all of these things, are you still going to be a porn addict or drug addict?

  1. I don’t find porn addictive – it’s a utility. Drugs as well are not addictive unless you’re talking opiates & Valium. The issue is our brain’s addiction to escape. Escape is porn, heroin, Vegas, and a giant rail of coke all in one. Escaping the reality we have built & confined ourselves to & ultimately condemned ourselves to live through — our own self-destruction. That’s the question – is the kamikaze principle truly what makes us human? If so, they explains why we need a God.

      By far, the most searched for terms on the internet are related to pornography. Pornography is rampant in the world today. Perhaps more than anything else, Satan has succeeded in twisting and perverting sex. He has taken what is good and right (loving sex between a husband and wife) and replaced it with lust, pornography, adultery, rape, and homosexuality. Pornography can be the first step on a very slippery slope of ever-increasing wickedness and immorality (Romans 6:19). The addictive nature of pornography is well documented. Just as a drug user must consume greater and more powerful quantities of drugs to achieve the same “high,” pornography drags a person deeper and deeper into hard-core sexual addictions and ungodly desires.

      The three main categories of sin are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16). Pornography definitely causes us to lust after flesh, and it is undeniably a lust of the eyes. Pornography definitely does not qualify as one of the things we are to think about, according to Philippians 4:8. Pornography is addictive (1 Corinthians 6:12; 2 Peter 2:19), and destructive (Proverbs 6:25-28; Ezekiel 20:30; Ephesians 4:19). Lusting after other people in our minds, which is the essence of pornography, is offensive to God (Matthew 5:28). When habitual devotion to pornography characterizes a person’s life and he continues in sin without seeking help, making no attempt to stop, or feeling no desire to change his behavior, it demonstrates the person may not be saved (1 Corinthians 6:9).

      For those involved in pornography, God can and will give the victory. Are you involved with pornography and desire freedom from it? Here are some steps to victory: 1) Confess your sin to God (1 John 1:9). 2) Ask God to cleanse, renew, and transform your mind (Romans 12:2). 3) Ask God to fill your mind with Philippians 4:8. 4) Learn to possess your body in holiness (1 Thessalonians 4:3-4). 5) Understand the proper meaning of sex and rely on your spouse alone to meet that need (1 Corinthians 7:1-5). 6) Realize that if you walk in the Spirit, you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh (Galatians 5:16). 7) Take practical steps to reduce your exposure to graphic images. Install pornography blockers on your computer, limit television and video usage, and find another Christian who will pray for you and help keep you accountable.
