Pornography addiction is the addiction that no one wants to talk about, yet the statistics surrounding it are staggering. Here are just a few that you may or may not have heard.
56% of all divorce filings mention the use of pornography under the causes.
In 2018 alone, more than 5,517,000,000 hours of porn were consumed on just one of the world’s largest porn sites.
40 million Americans say that they regularly visit porn sites.
The largest consumer group of online porn is men between the ages of 35 and 49.
Pornography streams more hours of content than Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon combined.
The statistics on pornography are alarming, but many of the harmful effects are immeasurable. Pornography lessens your potential and numbs your emotions, keeping you from living a full and integrated life. It's difficult to measure all the effects that pornography has on your marriage and family, but the false views that you subconsciously adopt and the disconnect with reality that increases daily, will erode your relationships with your wife and your family until they are destroyed.
In short, pornography addiction takes you farther than you want to go, keeps you longer than you intend to stay, and costs you more than you're able to pay.
There is hope! You can find your life, learn to live without pornography, navigate the difficulties that life throws your way, and fully engage in your family, your work, and every aspect of your life.
