Pornography is an addictive drug. It is used to cope with the stressors of life in an unhealthy way. It releases those “feel good” chemicals into the brain, just like drugs and alcohol do; they induce pleasure automatically, which makes it addictive in nature. When we pair a naturally addictive substance with a way to escape our problems and insecurities, it becomes crippling. To make matters worse, often times pornography exposure first happens in adolescence, a time when we have weak self control and too often feel embarrassed to reach out for help.
