He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion. – Proverbs 28:13

Millions of men across the globe are thought to be suffering with Internet porn addiction. A recent study says around 33% of men aged between 16-34 years old and 32% of ladies in same age category are addicted to Internet porn and this figure is growing every day.

PORN ADDICTION AND REWARD PATHWAYS: Let me teach you something about your brain and how porn affects it. Our brains are full of pathways. Every time you learn something new, a new pathway is created.

The more you practice a new skill, the stronger the associated pathway becomes in your brain. At some point, the skill becomes unconscious precisely because the pathway associated with the skill becomes so engrained.

Unfortunately, this process also happens with addiction. Porn addiction rewires the brain by creating a new neural pathway. One of the key things that help you remember this map is a chemical called dopamine.

Dopamine serves to remind us of the things that are most pleasurable in our lives. Anything that triggers dopamine is something that will strengthen your neural pathway.

For instance, let’s say eating rice is your pathway. You now know that eating rice is very exciting and it’s an activity that makes you happy.

The more you eat rice, the more pronounced and automatic this neural pathway becomes. This pathway becomes a fast and easy route to accessing dopamine.

Recovery from this hypothetical addiction of eating rice means avoid eating rice and not thinking about rice. When you fantasize about eating rice, you actually trigger the dopamine pathway in the same way as being exposed rice. Over time, this pathway will fade and become weaker and weaker.

To break free from addiction, you must learn how to develop new pathways that allow you to access dopamine on a repetitive nature so these new pathways can get stronger and stronger.

Tomorrow, I will show you several ways that will help you create new pathways by exposing your mind to new thinking thought patterns. Do not allow anything to enslave you. Reject porn. Do not let it control, dominate and rule your life. You were made to rule over all. Go and fulfil your destiny. God bless you.

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: It’s my destiny to rule, control and dominate all things. Amen
