I Feel Like Crap When I Look at Porn, Which Then Makes Me Want to Look at Porn Again. How Do I Break This Cycle?

Hey, it’s Craig. The question on the podcast this week is “I look at porn and I feel like crap. But then I look at porn and I feel like crap. How do I break this cycle?”

Well I know that what you’re describing isn’t a pleasant experience, but your answer is actually right there in the question.

You’re doing something that gives you a few seconds or maybe at most a few minutes of pleasure but then afterward you feel terrible. The ecstasy is fleeting and then you feel awful.

If you feel like crap without porn you’re going to feel like crap with porn. I think the bigger question is, why do you feel like crap?

Like really dive into that question. It’s so easy to run away from how we’re feeling and mask it, but spend a moment really asking that question.

Did you have a bad day at work? Did you get in a fight with your spouse? Did you get some devastating news?

Sometimes we blame porn for a lot when instead we should dive deeper to the root issue. If porn was out of the equation would you feel the same?

Ask yourself, “Why don’t I feel joy? Why don’t I have peace? Why am I walking around feeling like crap all the time?”

Obviously adding porn to how you’re feeling is just going to make it worse. So just take some time and dive deep and see what comes up.
