How Porn is Keeping You Away From Success? And How to Get Back in Track


If you think that porn is taking success away from your life; well, you got that right. This article will show you how porn is taking your life away, and you probably don´t even notice.

Here are some alarming reasons to stop watching porn:

1. It is an Addiction like any other

Porn is an addiction and it´s definitely a problem, and it´s probably the biggest addiction men have.

Addiction will destroy your life in multiple areas. It will consume your time, your money, your energy, and will ruin the progress you have towards achieving your goals.

Your life will be a lot better without it, even when you probably don´t even know the damage that it is causing to your life.

2. Depression could take you

Porn is all about dopamine release into our brains, that´s what produces the feeling of pressure. The more you watch it, the more you will need to feel that pleasure you used to have at the beginning; and when not watching regularly, you will find yourself feeling bad and could lead to depression.


3. Productivity will go Down

It’s an addiction that will will stop you from getting work done in one way or another. The worst part is that even if you go back to work afterwards and make up the time, the momentary break will have still cut your efficiency in half.

Make your productivity grow and make all distractions go away, including porn.

4. You wont be able to put it up

The way porn affects your brain, and the images that you’re accustomed to seeing, means that you’ll struggle when it comes to having sex with someone else.

You don’t notice it happen, but your brain is gradually effected until it’s too late. If you stop watching, then eventually everything will go back to normal, and you won’t have issues anymore.

Stop now and make your sex drive a success again.

5. You wont be happy with your body

When you watch porn, you start to compare yourself with the actors, and in most cases that probably won’t make you feel good about yourself. But it’s silly to compare, because a lot of what you’re seeing isn’t natural. Remember that at the end, it´s only just a movie, it´s all fantasy.

6. Porn Causes us to Stop Appreciating People

We can forget to appreciate just what we have. With images instilled in our minds of perfect bodies, we can easily forget to appreciate our partner.

Not only that, but the addiction also means that you’ll be spending less time with your loved ones or family. Less time improving real connections, and more time sat in front of a screen up to no good.

7. It Destroys Your Self-Confidence

Might make you question a lot of things; your abilities in the bedroom, your physical appearance, your relationships.

Unfortunately, this is one of the biggest side effects of things like porn. They ruin your self-confidence. But, there’s a simple fix: stop watching porn and the doubt goes away.

8. It could turn into an Expensive Habit

If you starts watching premium productions, your wallet is going to start looking a little thin.

They make it pretty easy for you to get hooked as well. Ads all over the place, free trials, you name it. Your wallet is a lot better off without porn in your life.

9. Keep You away from your Passion

You lose sight of your passions, you stop working on them. Porn is just one of the many bad habits that can stop us from working on our passions. Your addiction to watching porn is taking up a lot of your time; time that could be spent achieving your goals.

10. It will Cloud Your Imagination

Studies have shown that porn clouds your creativity and imagination with unrealistic images and garbage. In order to be your most creative self, you need to get rid of everything adding to your life in this way.

11. It Could Make you Violent Against Women

This one I’d take with a pinch of salt. Watching porn has often led men to become more violent towards women. In many of the videos online, women are treated in a way that shouldn’t ever be repeated in real life, unless it’s something they find arousing and give you their consent to do so.

Many men take this the wrong way though, and it can lead to violence against women. This is another great reason to stop watching porn.

How Can We Stop This?


1. Make a Resolution

This might seem silly, but try not doing it? If you feel negatively about your relationship with porn and like you’ve come to rely on it a little bit, what if you simply made a promise to yourself that you wouldn’t watch any for a certain amount of time, it could be a few days, or a week, or a month, depending on how frequently you’d normally use porn. Everyone’s willpower will function a little differently in situations like these, so your mileage may vary, and if you’re trying to find solutions online, you may have tried this avenue already and failed. But before moving on to other options it’s fair to suggest that you just make a no-porn resolution and see if you can stick to it. You might surprise yourself. You can do this.


2. Read Erotica Instead

If you want to keep on masturbating but don’t want porn to be involved, there are other options. People with no access to visual porn have known this for a long time, but a really sexy alternative to watching people have sex is reading about people having sex.

That might sound less exciting, particularly if you’re not much of a reader, but erotica, like porn, is produced by the truckload and, unlike porn, features really stunning amounts of conceptual variety. Whatever your fantasy, there’s not only erotica about it, but a lot, and some of it will be really, really hot. If you’re looking to buck your porn-watching habits for something arousing but different, cast the porn inside your imagination with all the sexy stories out there. Who knows? You might even be inspired to write some of your own.


3. Use Your Imagination

This might be something you’re doing already, but a great alternative to internet porn is, well, just imagining sexual scenarios in your head. The truth is that our brains are our biggest sex organs. Without the crutch of porn, you’ll likely find you’re still able to get just as turned on with your thoughts as company. So dim the lights, lie back and experience masturbation the way your distant ancestors once did.



4. Make It a Group Effort

If you’ve tried all that and you’re still struggling, it might be time to reach out for help. Many people find that sticking to a resolution is easier when there’s someone to hold you accountable. That could definitely be the case here. While it might be trickier, given the subject matter, if you have a friend (or partner) you can talk to about these issues, you could try asking them to check in on you and your anti-porn resolution to help give you extra motivation. If you can’t think of anyone in your life who fits the bill, you could consider reaching out for help on an online community where users come together to help each other quit masturbating.



Good luck with this, you can do it. Go get your life back!
