Addicted to internet por

hey doc, I think I might be addicted to internet porn ... I have to watch every night, sometimes I will watch until the morning hours and I feel disgusted after watching porn :(

It isn''t alright with me, I have moral values and watching porn makes me feel degradable. I am 26 and single and have never had sex, could that be the problem?

Is this a control of the mind thing? What can I do to control myself?

Firstly, it's becoming fashionable to talk of "addiction" to such things, but this is absolutely not helpful. They are, perhaps, bad habits, a way of looking at such behaviours that relates better to how to best treat themn.
Its curious that you compulsively watch porn apparently until the early hours of the morning, but you claim to feel disgusted by the stuff - we rarely indulge so heavily in something that truly disgusts us. Maybe with your upbringing and general views, you feel you OUGHT to be disgusted by it.
COnsider seeing a CBT style counsellor / therapist to change the behaviour in more fruitful ways, and this will surely include a need for you to become much more active in other ways - develop a busy social life, not only one-on-one, but in groups relating to sport, hobbies, chairty work, whatever ; and develop other hobbies and pasttimes, so there isn't just a great big vacuum that the porn so readily fills.

I also wrote to the doc after a terrible break up, he said " refer to previous posts" . I was genuinely looking for help on how to move past the relationship. He mus resign if he no longer enjoys helping people.

I agree to some point what the doc is saying but get the feeling that he is tired of people''s problems ... anyway, I have a plan but thanks for the advice doc. And the rest, you''re creepy ...
