This hasn’t really been mentioned, but I know some people have problems with it, and others don’t feel that they have a problem even though it might affect them negatively. I’m not judging anyone, and this post is 100% serious. If at least one person finds this information useful, it will have been worth it.
One of the biggest and most dangerous wastes is: PORN.
I know we’ve heard time and time again in the media that porn is harmless, or even good for you. I’m afraid the results are in guys, and it’s definitely NOT good.
Whether you feel that you have a healthy relationship with porn, or if you wish you could give it up entirely, I urge you to at least look at the research and then decide what you want to do. I won’t tell anyone what to do with their life, but when I learned about what watching porn can do to your mind and body, I wanted nothing more to do with it. Erectile dysfunction in my 30s? No thanks.
The most famous book written on the subject (maybe the only one?) is “Your Brain On Porn”.
You can find the author’s website here:
If you prefer to get a quick review of the information in visual or audio form, you can check an interview of the author here (SFW):
I also found a very thorough blog series on the subject that goes into more details than just the video:
I end with an inspiring quote from the article for anyone considering giving it up but isn’t sure if it’s worth the struggle.
“…men who have been able to eliminate porn from their lives report seeing an increase in willpower and impulse control that impacts not just their ability to stay away from porn but all areas of their lives. They find they procrastinate less and have an easier time sticking with goals they’ve set for themselves.”
