i only have eyes for you....well except for when i look at porn

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 5 years you would of noticed a significant increase of highly sexualised media seep into our lives like a toxic waste.

Well what else do you expect when we live in a world that has a mass scale porn addiction, and the addiction (a weed) is so deep rooted that the likelihood of uprooting it is no longer possible. So that leaves us with exposing it, talking about it, and educating people on it, in hope that by doing so it will stop being fed and hopefully one day shrivel up and die!

This porn pandemic is infecting our families, marriages, and relationships, but it is also chemically rewiring the brain!

Porn is a drug and it has been proven to have the same effects on your brain.

Now we have all been warned from an early age about how bad drugs are for you and they fry your brain, ruin your life, and they become addictive, and this is not just your mother or father's opinion. It has been scientifically proven.

It's time that pornography is talked about in the same way.

I cam e across this awesome new campaign called Fight the New Drug. They are all about exposing pornography for what it really is and proving the scientific results on how porn and drugs have similar effects. They are a fantastic site to check out and they offer so many resources and information on how to get the help you need and how to protect the ones you love.

Here is a few facts about Pornography addiction from their website.

Pornography Addiction:
1. When viewing pornography, large amounts of dopamine, and other natural brain chemicals are released in the brain upon seeing an image. This gives you a super high because it overloads the pleasure center of the brain with dopamine. 
2. The body can build up a tolerance to images so you need harder-core images, more variety, and more frequently to get the same rush.
3. Your brain becomes rewired to think it cannot survive without porn. Because you have overloaded the pleasure center so many times, it has become normal to the body and the body needs that level of dopamine to function. So you get the feeling of a craving for the pornography. This feeling becomes so strong and intense you cannot resist the impulse to satisfy the demand for the craving. So you fall victim to porn addiction.
4. If you ARE able to resist for a while, you suffer withdrawal symptoms very similar to that of having a drug addiction. It makes it very hard not to continue viewing pornography.
