Recreation is the spending of time in non-sexual pleasurable activities. It can be in the form of rest, entertainment or adventure.  Pornography addiction can prohibit  taking out time for spending time with our near and dear ones. We have become so obsessed with sex that we don’t make time to look  into our own selves. We have no time for introspection; we have no time to interact with others.

A positive mood and a sense of serenity in your life will make it more difficult for you to descend into the dark pit of porn addiction.
