Pornography addiction?

Hi @jonasd,
The first thing I think you have to realize is that not every person that consumes porn is an addict, or will become an addict. There are serious differences between addictions, compulsions, obsessions, and so on. I feel like you need to understand where your struggle lies first.

How often? Do you get depressed after? Are they intertwined?

Here are a few scholarly articles that might help guide you.

Jonas, Do you have someone that you can talk to about this struggle and what it may mean in correlation with your depression?

Thanks for getting in touch with me, I already ready the articles that you suggested, they where very helpful… and yes I have a problem with porn because I doesn’t leave me to do my regular work or plans as I usually do. And at this moment I try several times to quit but I still getting to the same point.

Right now I don’t have any person that I can speak with.
