The Pain of the Pleasure: Loss of Physical Health

When it comes to your health, a time-and energy-consuming porn habit can seriously interfere with critical self-care activities such as exercising, physical check ups, eating well, getting enough sleep and even bathing and grooming.

Sleep deprivation is a particular problem for porn users, given that many people access porn before going to bed or in the middle of the night.  Porn addicts can literally stay up night after night jeopardizing their health, family relationships, and especially work.

Having a busy schedule to begin with can only make matters worse for people who are preoccupied with getting their daily dose of porn.

“I was working full-time, going to college in the evenings, maintaining the house, trying to be a good husband and father, and getting by on four hours of sleep.  After my wife went to sleep, I’d be on the internet until 2a.m.  I’d often have a hard time functioning the next day,” said one porn addict.

Besides taking up time that could have been spent sleeping, porn can also make it difficult to fall asleep.  The visual centers in the brain have a hard time calming down after all that stimulation.  Long hours on the computer doing Internet porn can also result in eye problems, back, neck, wrist and should pain, which make it difficult to sleep and make life more difficult during the day as well.

Spending significant amounts of time doing porn can wreak havoc on work and school pursuits.  When you’re constantly exhausted and when your mind is focused on porn even when you’re not doing it, optimal functioning is impossible.  One man told me that when he was into his porn addiction, he became 75 percent less productive at work and it cost him his job.

“As my porn addiction got stronger, I started ignoring important aspects of my work.  I’d procrastinate and fall behind.  I was spending untold hours a day doing something that had no benefit to me as far as becoming a better person, gaining skills, understanding the world better, or enhancing my relationships with other people.  I wasted huge amounts of time, and time is the most precious thing in life”, another client commented.

Another person said,”What bothered me the most about my porn use was the lost chances.  I’m ambitious in a lot of ways, and the world of porn provided an easy distraction from the ambition.  Instead of pushing myself, I would just look at pictures for several hours a day.  There were milestones that I should have been hitting as a stockbroker and I wasn’t hitting them.  I kept diverting myself.  That’s what bothers me — the lost ambition, the squandered opportunities.”
