Pornography Addiction-Who Is Hurt-2

Continued from Pornography Addiction-Who Is Hurt?

It Hurts Your Co-workers And Friends: 

As pornography addiction changes how we see your mate and our children, it changes how we see everyone...even friends and people we work with.  The more time we spend satisfying our addictive cravings, the more important those cravings become.  Our priority at work is to do a good job to earn our pay, and maybe a promotion, but, just as an alcoholic will drink too much at lunch, a party, or hide a bottle at work, we do the same things with pornography, or short of that, with pornographic ideas.  Sex becomes the focus of our life in all areas.  Our judgments of co-workers are based on things other than work performance.  The only friends we have left are those who didn't notice how we were looking at their spouse, or their children.  Instead of pictures being something we keep hidden away, they become how we frame everybody and everything we see.  President Clinton was compelled to chase sexual gratification, obviously, above everything else in his life, wife, job, family.  To be fair, apparently, we're beginning to see the same characteristics in Congressman Foley.  Do you think their addictions helped or hurt those who worked with or cared for them?  How did their compulsions affect their attention to their jobs?  Though there is less publicity, the same can be said of a sexual addiction to pornography.  Our friends and co-workers are hurt by our obsession with sexual images and ideas.

Pornography Addiction Hurts You: 

As harmful as it is to spouse, children, friends and co-workers, pornography addiction hurts you the most.  Let's start with the productive, positive, creative things we could be doing with our time, money and energy.  Instead, we waste it on overuse of a bodily function.  When pornography becomes the focus of our mental energies, we propel ourselves toward ever more destructive behavior to fulfill our cravings.  First, pictures, then movies, then violent movies or kiddy movies, then peep shows and computer sex.  Every step we take lowers our self-esteem and makes sexual gratification more difficult to achieve...forcing us to desire more exotic and deviant behavior in the hopes of satisfying our ever-deepening cravings.

As addiction progresses, most move on to one or more of these behaviors:  peeping, prostitutes, adultery, mate-swapping, orgies, sadomasochism, flashing, bestiality, pedophilia, rape and even murder.  Of course, progression to these extremes is accelerated if porn addiction is combined with drugs or alcohol.  If you've been aroused or worse, climaxed, to pictures or imagination of any of these extreme behaviors, it's very likely your addiction will compel you to carry them out in real life.

To avoid hurting your family, your friends, your co-workers and yourself, you must get this stopped now.  This is the first of a series of three articles to help you get free from addiction to pornography.  The other two are Pornography-An Addiction? and Pornography Addiction Recovery.

It may seen there is no help for someone with this problem but I want you to know there is someone who can help, who loves you and wants only the best for you.  That someone is God.  If you want help from God, just click on Help Me God.
