Dr. Don Hilton is quoted in this excellent article on pornography addiction. I agree with his point that it takes about two years for an individual addicted to pornography to reset their brain to normal dopamine levels. After their brains have readjusted, they are able to better enjoy things in life that are interesting and stimulating to most people. This has been my observation over the years of working with individuals struggling with pornography addiction and it’s great to see others talking about it in such clear terms. Teaching the brain that it needs high levels of stimulation in the form of dopamine surges only leaves the addicted individual full of chronic disappointment and dissatisfaction with his life and relationships.
