If you give anyone enough cocaine over a long enough period of time they will become addicted. However if you get those same people clean and detoxed some of them will never touch cocaine again, others will make the insane choice (while sober) to take more cocaine. This is the difference between someone with a bad habit vs. a true addict. The addict will go back to his/her drug of (no) choice no matter how bad the consequences might be. If you have a bad porn (sex) habit, nofap will help you get clean/detoxed and you can go on with life. If you have a sex addiction that manifests itself in porn use, compulsive masturbation, affairs, prostitutes or any other sexually destructive behaviour nofap has very little to offer you and may in fact be equivalent to pointing a loaded gun at your head. Why? Because sex addiction is a progressive and deadly disease. The brains reward system requires a higher dose for the same results. You may start with vanilla porn but will eventually find it insufficient and cross boundaries into extreme fetish porn. Over time you will find yourself using pornography that fills you with disgusts and self hatred. Over time you will find yourself acting out in more extreme ways. Massage parlours, prostitutes, voyeurism, etc. etc. Over time you will take riskier and riskier behaviour. Acting out at work, while driving, in public, etc. Over time you will isolate yourself more and more, from friends, family, colleagues. Over time you will have nothing left accept your addiction and a ruined life. Over time you will find yourself suicidal. If you think you might be a true addict then you need to realize that nofap is likely to lead you further down the path of self destruction. You must deal with the underlying issue which causes you to be an addict. A spiritual sickness caused by childhood trauma. I'm not talking about religion when I say spiritual sickness. I'm talking about your choices being driven by underlying unconscious fear and your behaviours not matching up with your inner subconscious code of conduct. The addict must embark on a journey of spiritual discovery, healing and service to obtain recovery.
