I am not addicted or desensitized, but I did masturbate to porn frequently and I do suffer from social anxiety. So I really dont know what to do. Since I love porn TO DEATH but I also dont want to miss an opportunity to become more self confident, this is an extremely important decision to me. I am currently porn free since almost a month which hasnt been a great overcoming, but I really like porn. Its not that I want to stop watching it (but of course I want to become more self-assured). My last orgasm was 10 days ago, so I'm currently rebooting. No changes so far.
I've read a lot of stuff on these sites but I'm still trying to understand this whole theory. So, the high dopamin release of porn causes my dopamin receptors to decrease which leads to a lower level of dopamin during normal activities which makes me more anxious. But what are the differences between the dopamin releases of porn, fast food, sex etc. Wouldnt these activities have the same effect? Why does only porn make my social anxiety worse? The motivation to go out there and meet girls was always there at the time when I watched a lot of porn. I am just so anxious while talking to them.
I must say the information you can get on yourbrainonporn and reunuting is really helpful and it is A LOT. But I found nothing on how to deal with porn after rebooting. After I finished rebooting, can it make my social anxiety worse If I look at porn once in a while. (Once in a week or less).
Sorry for my bad english! Looking forward to your input
Thanks a lot
