Pornography Addiction Apps

Exercises, spending time with others, and joining a support group are examples of inexpensive offline activities that can help pornography and masturbation addicts overcome their habits.

1) Exercise

  • Exercises help in lowering tension and positively focusing energy.
  • Activities like swimming and running strengthen the body and boost the release of endorphins. Endorphins are hormones that encourage well-being feeling. "Feeling happier and more relaxed may reduce the urge to masturbate as frequently".
  • Exercises can also enable individuals to stay busy and therefore, cut down the opportunities to masturbate and watch pornography.
  • Outdoor exercises such as jogging are also good for rebooting.
  • Outdoor team sports can also enable addicts to build their confidence.
  • Relaxation exercises can also enable individuals to stay away from pornography by helping them to deal with feelings of anxiety and stress.

2) Spending Time with Others

  • Feeling lonely and having nothing to do may lead some people to masturbate and watch pornography. Spending time with others can help pornography and masturbation addicts to redirect their focus and keep them occupied.
  • Pornography and masturbation addicts can also move the activities they conduct alone to a public space. This includes activities such as watching sports and watching TV shows.
  • Other ways to spend time with others include meeting up with friends/family, joining a gym, and taking a class.

3) Support Group

  • Support groups can help pornography and masturbation addicts by giving them space "they need to express their concerns and develop positive coping strategies".
  • According to Medical News Today, when people talk openly about their challenges, "others can help them feel validated". This, in turn, reduces feelings of guilt and shame.
  • Accountability is also important for individuals who are trying to change their behavior. Accountability can help pornography and masturbation addicts develop new behaviors.
