What happened when I fell back into porn

Oh wellI want you guys to create a list. Create a list of different negative things porn does to you and your life. I really need this kick in the ass because I fell back into the addiction. This fuckin' addiction, It's really like a drug.

Neuroscience of Internet Pornography Addiction: A Review and Update (2015)

COMMENTS: Thorough and compelling review of the neuroscience literature related to Internet addiction subtypes, with special focus on internet porn addiction. The review also critiques recent headline-grabbing studies by SPAN lab, which purport to have "debunked porn addiction." An excerpt from the abstract:

"Within this review, we give a summary of the concepts proposed underlying addiction and give an overview about neuroscientific studies on Internet addiction and Internet gaming disorder. Moreover, we reviewed available neuroscientific literature on Internet pornography addiction and connect the results to the addiction model. The review leads to the conclusion that Internet pornography addiction fits into the addiction framework and shares similar basic mechanisms with substance addiction."
