Hello Big H, Hope your recovery is going well.   I disagree that Pornography is like crack but only because after joining Reboot Nation and studying addiction more I came across this link attached.

Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong. Johanh Hari.

Heroine was widely used during the vietnam war.   There was great concern that there would be a nationwide epidemic when the vets returned home but the greater majority just blended back into society.

The classic addiction study was putting one rat in a cage.  In one bottle there was water and cocaine, in the other bottle was just water.   The rat finished the cocaine off and left the one that was just water.  This was seen as the test to determine is something was addictive or not.  Recently the study was done again but differently.   

In the cage was placed numerous rats, runs, food, toys, games.    The water bottle and water/cocaine bottles were used again but the rats barely touched the cocaine.  This was seen to be because they were social and able to occupy themselves with eating, playing, having sex excetera.

I hope you enjoy the first documentary and the second one just goes deeper.

Cheers!

After watching the "Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong" video, read this. There are a lot of problems with the statements made in it.

In short, not all addicts lack connection.

I agree with Daniel Amen and the book about brain that addictions are mostly the symptom and until you deal with the cause addictions only change form from one thing to another

Right. I think it is a symptom of a disease, not simply a desire or a habit that is difficult to remove.

right, i think pornography is not a drug. But with modern technology Enabling anyone to easily access these media Whether it is a PC, notebook, smart mobile that connects to the internet anywhere, including social media that makes it easier to access and forward But what to do, we have to stop interested in pornography. When it comes to see through the eyes often.
