What we're about
This Self Help Group & Fellowship is for discussing Pornography "Addiction" and how to come out of it for Sobriety, Abstinence, Recovery and Good Life.
Please be advised that there isnt anything in reality called Porn Addiction. Its a loose term which is Non Clinical in nature as far as Psychiatry is concerned.
People watch Porn excessively due to many reasons most commonly Novelty Seeking Behaviour, Procrastination, Impulse Control Disorders (ADHD), OCD, Mood Issues Like Bipolar Disorder and Behavioural Addiction. Porn is also creatively superior but lightyears away from real sex. It is natural for men and women to fullfill there internal desires via porn which may not be possible in reality. Porn is a multibillion dollar industry which caters especially to married couples.
There are structured grids for Psychotherapy but it is advised that the therapy is personalised (Psychodynamic, Ecelectic Approach) rather than following a fixed grid and generally speaking also looking beyond diagnostic terms. In some cases it may just be about treating the disorder with medicines or therapy like Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. In other cases the symptoms serve a different purpose and help the individual in avoiding other issues. In those cases if one doesnt look beyond, the symptoms will not respond to structured treatment or may be the Patient will start presenting with something else warranting change in diagnosis and treatment and something else will come up like a hide and seek process until this gets ingrained as a pattern with the Psychiatrist/Psychologist shopping due to therapy failures. This is because the root cause is unadressed. It doesnt mean that patient is malingering but the mind needs to conjure some kind of symptoms to avoid facing certain issues and hence holds on to illness models, in order to try and treat one,another will take its place. Its a form of resistance from the minds part , resistance to let go or change, in these cases just standard treatment is likely to fail(and may actually reinforce illness models) and one needs to be creative, long story short suggesting the same 'drill' for tom, dick and harry may not work.
You may choose not to join this group as we do not organise meetups due to sensitive nature of the topic. We only answer one on one mails on issues you are facing due to watching Pornography Excessively.
