    I live in Denmark, and they have officially recognized porn addiction as an addiction that can be treated.

    I started my treatment today and got blood tests and a health check. I will get professional help from a doctor with a specialty in Porn addiction.

    So happy to start this journey away from Porn.

    EDIT:
    Many of you have asked me about the specific treatment.

    Since many common symptoms of porn addiction are erectile dysfunction and depression, blood tests are made to ensure that there are no other medical factors that need to be addressed.

    If you are healthy, then the treatment will consist of the same principles that are used at other behavioral addictions such as gambling addiction.

    I feel very good that I now have professionals that can support my journey towards freedom. The doctor told me that most men she treats are able to cure their addiction and get a fulfilling life. She also told me to be honest, and document the effects I am feeling during my reboot so that we can make proper strategies to quit this addiction successfully.

    What was the treatment you started?

    I don't necessarily know what blood tests can tell anyone about porn addiction. You could get someone who is really healthy who is seriously addicted to porn, then you could also get someone who is really unhealthy who is seriously addicted to porn.

    So I really don't know what blood tests achieve when it comes to porn addiction. They tell you nothing.

    I think any nation could at least warn about the dangers of unhealthy PM, it really doesn't cost much. If people knew about the dangers before they started, a lot of us might not be here.

    Good luck my friend! I'll be interested to see how things go.
     
  12. Well done. I’d be very keen to hear of your progress and how a doctor will ‘treat’ porn addiction.

    Has the doctor talked about medication yet. Where I live doctors only have to hear the D word (depression) and they’re jumping to prescribing pharmaceutical medication. Not good imo. They hardly ever recommend at first things like natural remedies or diet. Nope. Straight to medication. Opps, sorry, didn’t mean to deviate the topic. I am honestly interested to hear your updates regarding ‘treatment’. All the best.

    I agree with you, that medication are used in too many cases.

    I am very critical of this, and will not be taking meds.

    However I have come to the point where I regonize that I need help to beat my porn addiction (have tried to beat it for 3 years without luck).

    I have previously stopped my Gambling addiction via professional treatment, and therefore I believe that professional help can be the right step in overcoming this horrible PMO addiction that I have.

  14. It sounds like you have thought things through in terms of getting professional help. I think it can benefit someone who has tried for some time without the results they desire. Good on you my friend. You’re taking care of yourself. Will you need to pay for professional help? The costs are a huge turn off for many where I live when it comes to getting help. That and long wait lists.
