Pornography Addiction VS Food Addiction
I would like to take a poll. There are all kinds of different addictions such as alcohol, drug, tobacco, etc. However, I personally think that the top two addictions are to food and pornography. And I believe that each of these is largely due to television and the media infiltrating our brains, which have a primitive effect on our bodies.

I would like to know your opinion. Which addiction do you think is easier to overcome?

Please give intelligent, non-sarcastic responses. I'd like this to be an enlightening discussion to those that read this thread.

Re: Pornography Addiction VS Food Addiction
I think food addiction would be easier to overcome.

Food appeals to our base instinct of hunger, acceptance, comfort. It is physical.

Porn appeals to a deeper, sinister hunger. Sexual in nature it arouses the beast in man.

You can lock the twinkies away in the cabinet, or toss them out, and start over with breaking the food addiction.

Not so easy with porn. Those images are embedded in your brain. No tossing them out.

It's not about which addiction is easier to overcome. It's about whether the individual that is addicted has any self awareness and how strong their will is.

Re: Pornography Addiction VS Food Addiction
All addictions are bad..But the reason this caught my eye.. Found out this week that my (hoping) soon to be x sister in law's daughter has a very strange addiction to food and gay porn.. it's disgusting.. just found her 'blog' this week due to one of her other sister's craziness..

So she got both going on
.. The things i saw on her page i had never ever seen before.. it's bad, real bad.. is porn legal? I mean to have that trash on some blog like that? homo's having group sex, all kinds of perverted shit..
and food all kinds of food. she weighs about 250. She even says she addicted to porn and food.. weirdest shit i ever seen that whole bunch is demon possessed no doubt they are..the younger one is a blood drinker thinking she is some sort of vampire.. tripping me out.. knew they were bad but never knew how evil they really were until this week..

Addiction is another case of extending the hell out of a disease.

If you haven't been to a bad area for a while go for a wander around skid row. That is mental illness and addiction.

Too much food, too much using the computer, too much porn, at worst bad habits unless you weight 1000lbs and got fired for jacking off at your desk.

Medical guilds like to turn things into diseases, that way they earn money "treating" them. This treatment usually involves getting you hooked on there drugs that drug industry sponsors can earn lots of money from.

What if you lay in the bed all day an night with your free lap top gorging on food and watching gay porn? If that ain't a sickness then it's demonic possession/ I truly believe these people have demons in them. While back when they were younger they were and apparently allowed to dabble in devil worship.. now the fruits of that labor are ripe.. it's all evil at the core..

Actually, I think the top addiction is anger.

Mainly because few people even recognize it as something a person can even be addicted to.

But if you've ever known people who spend a lot of time angry, or are quick to pick fights or argue with others, you'll see that for them, getting angry is like crack-cocaine.

They WANT to be angry, and it feels good for them. They get a rush, it energizes them.

However, I do agree that TV has a huge impact. Most sitcoms are just people insulting each other, and most conflicts seem to be resolved by either extreme violence or care-bear type 'let's all have a hug' rather than anything sensible, constructive or realistic.

Most people I know who are bright and have spent time around any addict have realized that there are 'addicted people' rather than addictive substances.

Even heroin is something many people can take or leave and certainly easier to kick than smoking or alcohol. Heck, when I quit smoking, it wasn't anything in the cigarette itself so much as the habits I'd formed around it. The rituals and using smoking as a reward system.

From what I've observed, there seem to be two main factors: obsessive tendencies and poor impulse control.
When addicts think it, they do it, and they think about 'it' constantly. Porn for example, fuels fantasy. Which fuels the addiction.

Some newer addiction treatments involve meditation and cognitive therapy - essentially to re-wire the brain. Change thinking patterns etc. If the person decides they do want to change, and free themselves, they can, but old habits are hard to ditch.
The alternative might be to try to channel that obsessiveness into something productive.

i used to have both addictions

was very porky at times in my life and loved eating everything and anything and too much. i used it to comfort myself in childhood due to severe abuse

now i can barely stomach most foods and only eat 1 meal a day and am very skinny

most of my life i've been quite the horny guy but now i find sex mostly disgusting and repulsive though i can get into it at times but need to masturbate to arousal first.

Re: Pornography Addiction VS Food Addiction
Ingestion (food), digestion (sleep) and congestion (sex) are the 3 pillars of physicality / physical attachment.

it's so hard to quit them because they are SPIRITUAL addictions, i.e. our spirit craves them.

to overcome these 3 main habits is to conquer death itself and ascend from this physical dimension.

Re: Pornography Addiction VS Food Addiction
Porn addiction, food addiction, shoe addiction, tanning addiction, baby addiction, buying rooster statuary addiction (lol or owls), plastic surgery addiction, etc etc. I think that the source of the issue isn't necessarily that which someone may be addicted to but what would instead seem to be an increase in addictiveness. I agree with you, OP, that television and the media have largely stimulated addictiveness in populations for the very basic purpose of stimulating consumption. For most, it may just seem like "average" spending--for others with even a slight addictive personality, wholesale addiction. The intention behind advertising is to generate a desire or sense of need for a specific product. This is generally through generating a sense of inadequacy or creation of what I call a "hole of inadequacy". Take a look at a woman's magazine sometime to see all the images of women who have been photoshopped to a perfection that is unlikely to be humanly possible. It's the clearest area in advertising where they are incredibly open with generating that "hole of inadequacy".

I don't think that any addiction is easier to overcome as both would ultimately have similar sense of reward and guilt for the addiction beyond the obvious. Contentment really is the only cure.

food starvation is a myth.

You don't die from lack of food; you die from food intoxication because of the food rotting in your stomach and contaminating the bloodstream.

When you stop eating the digestive cycle also stops, and if your body doesn't have enough energy to get rid of the toxic sludge / mass already present, then you will die from poisoning. You see, without the constant stimulus of ingesting food to force the previous meal out of the body, your body is suddenly alone in his battle with a poisonous rotting mass that won't come out from gravity alone.

Re: Pornography Addiction VS Food Addiction
I truly think addiction is the physical manifestation of a huge spiritual problem.

Love is spiritual now way around it.

The biggest misconception is our sexual hangups.

It is ok to be a sexual creature and to express it, but with maturity.

Religion must go. It is ok to love whom ever you fill connected with.

But I think coming to terms with sexuality is freedom.

It is not wrong to feel it...
experience it.....
share it......
own it..........
as long as it is done in good taste.

I am not talking about the physical act either.

For I am finding out that the art of Divine coupling is what moves this Universe.

It can take us to another place.

But I am sure if one looks hard enough on someone's doorstep of mistakes they will find it....

But please allow ONe to sweep up their own doorstep, and don't look at how dirty their neighbors doorstep is.

Somewhere down the line someone or somthing imprisioned women. And made them feel they are sluts for being sexual.

So I do believe this is something big to unload on humanity.
It is time to open pandora's box.

Now I am sure there are people who will pick and poke at my choice of words, but be it as it may, but to experience what I have had a glimpse of understanding, this kind of Love can only be understood in a HU-man way.

So addictions, Yes back to addictions.........
Yeah I understand addictions, because when you don't face the problem you drown the truth in substances and so on.
Been there and done it.

Keep in mind the concept of "structure vs content."

"Structure" is the framework upon which we build something. An example would be a musical staff.

"Content" is the stuff we put into the structure, e.g., notes and rests.

In this thread the structure is "addiction." The content is food, porn, or whatever.

People must change the structure for any real, lasting changes to occur.

Ridding ourselves of one type of content just leaves a vacuum, and it will soon be filled with another kind of content.

Changing the struture makes the content irrelevant.

addiction.........true, what causes addiction period?

This is a sick society.

Time for new thought....
Time for new idea's......

Time to rid the planet of sick thought......
We are in the time and moment for cleansing, and it is coming.

But addiction only happens to a soul that has not found the Truth.

Overcoming an addciton is when Desire to do good is more powerful than the dis-ease to cave in to oneself.

Time for graduation is at hand...

Even trying to derail something so beautiful that was intended to experience has been discounted as dark, and found as the scapegoat of numerous years of wandering in the desert only to find it was the hand that created Infinte Love. And now we see plainly who and what distorted this paradigm.

Addictions is a form of falling from grace.....
May God give mercy to those who give mercy....and understand.
