Pornography Addiction is commonly known as a behavioural and a process addiction
Process addictions mean being addicted to rewarding behaviour that does not involve an addictive substance, such as drugs or alcohol. Sometimes referred to as behavioural addictions, or compulsive behaviours, process addictions involve a compulsion to perform a certain action such as seeking pornography despite the increase in repeated negative consequences.
Process addictions vs. Substance addictions:
How is the brain affected?
Addiction is a chronic relapsing condition that presents itself in much the same way whether you are addicted to a substance such as alcohol or a behavioural process such as pornography. Addictive behaviours such as gambling, sex, and internet use all stimulate the brain’s reward system similar to addictive substances, by releasing neurotransmitters such as dopamine.
This stimulation leads people to become preoccupied and seek out such pleasurable experiences more and more often with no thought of possible consequences. After repeated exposure, some people will continue to seek out the experiences compulsively despite their ability to derive pleasure from the action decreases.
