-Dopamine is the neurochemical released by the brain when it experiences reward, stimulation, addiction, happiness or learning. The increase and decrease depend upon the intensity of the above-mentioned factors.

Understanding dopamine function is vital for overcoming pornography addiction. The increase in the level of dopamine differs for all types of drugs; the highest increase being recorded for amphetamine. But dopamine levels decrease after an hour or two in all sorts of drug addiction and even in natural healthy sex. Surprisingly, dopamine levels do not decline for 5-6 hours in pornography addicts. This means, that the chemical responsible for stimulation and exciting pleasure remains high for a very long period of time in pornography addicts. This can cause overstimulation in the brain and it craves for more and more pleasure. It becomes difficult to satisfy its cravings with natural healthy sex because normal sex is now incapable of extinguishing the fire of pleasure and craving burning inside your heart. It can only be complied with porn.

This is very important to understand for addicts wishing to climb up the road to recovery. They need to be completely honest about their addiction and need to discuss the matter in detail with their therapist. This recovery road for overcoming pornography addiction is full of thorns. Once you decide to stop using porn, your brain experiences a drop in dopamine levels and you start feeling dreadful. You experience withdrawal symptoms and even a real sex partner cannot boost you up. Your brain keeps screaming for porn as it is the only thing that is capable of rewarding you with pleasure at this point. Your abstinence is only effectual if you persist with unfailing strength and with the belief that you can beat your addiction at all cost.
