Internet Porn and Erectile Dysfunction

Internet Porn and Erectile Dysfunction
ED isn't just for older men anymore. The new face of ED is 20 years and addicted to Internet Porn.

There is a way out of addiction to Internet porn, but like any addiction, beginning is easier than quitting. These 3 suggestions are the best place to begin:
1. Cure depends mostly on the addict’s ability to see the problem. Knowing you have a problem is the first step to improving your life. If you are trying to help your partner give up Internet porn, try not to accuse harshly, but rather work with them at setting stronger boundaries. Just as with smokers or drinkers, the first time doesn’t always work with quitting.
2. Whenever you quit something that has been your main vice, you will have lots of extra time on your hands. During that time you are not calm, but incredibly anxious, depressed, feeling flu-like and impulsive. Trying to quit an Internet porn addiction without being enrolled in a support group will be less effective. When you are feeling at your weakest, being able to call a sponsor who has been there and done that is reassuring and helpful in making sure you stay away from Internet/phone porn.
3. Explore new healthy coping mechanisms to help you deal with stress, anger, boredom, depression, and life. This is done most effectively with the help of a counselor or treatment center. Counselors and treatment centers work as a team to help make you stronger, since being isolated with your addiction is the worst thing you can do.
What may have begun innocently with a group of friends, can turn into a monster; isolating you from everyone, especially the one you love the most. At that point it is important that you shut off your phone, close your lap top, and take a good honest look at your life. The addicted mind will tell you all sorts of lies. When you believe your own lies, the addiction has conquered you. Having an erectile dysfunction at the age of twenty five or thirty because you cannot get turned on normally with your wife or girlfriend is not normal. For the health of it, get help. –Mary Jo Rapini
