Superb Opinion

  • To be honest, I don't not understand the use of a "porn addiction". It is a behavior thing like compulsive gamblers... not an addiction per se like to narcotics, or nicotine. There are 'chemical addictions' and there are 'behavior problems'. Sounds like he need an attitude adjustment?

    • Duh... should have read" "I don't understand... OR I do not understand...

  • Therapy helps. It depends on how bad the addiction is and what he's willing to do each time to get off and how he gets off. Getting help before he hits bottom might be his only option. I struggled with sex addiction and my wife had to threaten me with divorce to get me to agree to go to therapy.

    Good luck

  • I think so but she needs to set limits and let him know her feelings. She can also encourage him to jerk off whenever he wants when they are not having sex but not to do it while watching porn.

  • She is wasting time.

  • Yep but he has to put the effort to get rid of that porn addiction

  • The thing about addicts is that they have to be the one to want to be better. No one else can make that decision stick in their life.

  • Some people can take an occasional or even weekly or daily drink and be fine. Others, though, get addicted, turn into alcoholics, and destroy their lives and the lives of those around them.

    Porn can be like that. Some can watch it now and then and it is like "whatever." Others get addicted. Some seek help. Some live in denial. If he is seeking help, there is hope. If he isn't, you might want to move on.

  • If he's seeking help

  • Depends. Like ANY addiction, if it prevents someone from living a normal healthy life, then it's a problem!

  • It's a choice not an addictive
