Thanks for this informative article. It’s a great primer on the addictive process for those struggling with pornography addiction. As a man recovering from this brutal addiction, it was of great importance to understand the mechanisms driving the behavior; and once I began understanding and was accountable and transparent, the addiction began to lose its power over me, by God’s Grace of course..

Yes my husband not only watches pornography and masturbates but he now watches video cam of other women. I’m on the verge of divorcing him or cheating on him. I haven’t yet done either of the two but I’m very very close to doing it. Can u please give me some advice on this?
