    these people have so much college education apparently yet they couldnt tell me that my anxiety was caused by porn addiction? i cant tell you how many different doctors i went to and they all tried to make me go to counseling, give me pills, but guess what? I have finally been able to connect with people and realized that when i went 40 days of no pmo, no mo, i have less anxiety then i could ever remember. wtf is wrong with doctors today?

    In my opinion that is your problem! They may be educated, yet what do they really know?

    I used to see a counselor for a long time, and it got to the stage where she told me that she could do nothing else for me, and that was it, I was left on my own, and I cannot describe in words how lucky I was to come across http://www.reuniting.info/ (before the YBOP site existed) while googling some of my problems, without it I fear something terrible would have happened to me.

    It angers me how easily they are willing to push pills on to you as if they are candies to be given out to anyone and everyone, without considering any of the like diet and exercise, things that are so important. I know there are people out there who have benefited from anti-depressants and the likes, so they do come in handy for some, but they are not for everyone.

    Because the liberals and LGBT community have tricked everyone into think masturbation is a normal healthy activity. Psychiatry is pseudoscience with the main objective of getting you hooked on SRI drugs to destroy your mind. I doubt psychology is much better.
  5. Many people confuse psychiatry and psychology. Talking with others about feelings I have found is one of the main ways to get over P addiction and many of the studies that might hel you with your addictions are created by psychologists who are really only there to help. Most therapists have to spend alot of time and money to get thier educations and end up making a maximum of 30,000 per year and risk their own sanity to try to help. I cannot speak for the pill industry but please think next time you malign what is arguably the most difficult career anyone can possibly do. I am sorry if you did not meet a therapist that was good for you but some day you might understand how difficult helping others can be.

    When the body and mind are truly understood both are at peace. Love kills desire, judgement and hatred breed hoplessness and addiction. Questioning the worlds you find yourself in , how can you go wrong?

    Same here, opie. One shrink had me on four psychotropics at the same time, with my brain cycling through bipolar phases hourly. I wanted to kill myself. Got diagnosed bipolar and given some drugs for it. Turns out it was the drugs making me bipolar, not my brain.

    Count yourself lucky, bro, you could have wasted 17 years of your life going through psychiatrists and counselors like I did. The window's closing on my efforts to get out of being FA, you still got time.

    IQ in college graduates has been declining for quite some time, along with vocabulary and other abilities. I refuse to take drugs under any but the most drastic circumstances.

    Thats a big unproven statement. The real problem on here I belive is MO with excessive porn use. Our ancestors have generally MO but not to excess and highly erotic material. Many mammals masturbate. There are scientific studies that suggests occasional O can be healthy. I am not condoning any of this for rebooters. I don't see how 'liberals' (whatever they are) and the LGBT have tricked people into this.

    Psychiatry is not pseudoscience, and the main objective is not to get people hooked on SRIs. HOWEVER I would agree that it can be used incorrectly and many are quick to perscribe the drugs. However having said that ; People with clinical depression tend to recover best with a combination of SRI and Therapy. The Therapy part is extremely important. Often the second part can be left out because drugs are cheaper than peoples time.

    On the stubject it would be intresting to know if the OP discussed the porn problem with them? If so I think even 'educated' people are only just begining to understand the negative impacts PMO/P can have on people. Especially as a addication. Hopefully over the next few yes more therapists will be aware and know how to ask the questions.

    I agree strongly with the post above me from neweggs. Although I am very skeptical of the pharmaceutical industry and their drugs, I think their profit motive overrides their interest in really helping the people who they are selling their drugs to. I have tried a few drugs for depression and anxiety and they gave me really bad side effects including making my penis numb! Also I have read that in studies cognitive behavioural therapy is as good or even better than drugs. And SSRI's are based on the fact that they increase your serotonin and that is how they help with your depression, yet the serotonin goes into your system and brain immediately yet you don't feel any improvement until you have been taking it for a few weeks, that makes no sense. I read that in The Feeling Good Handbook by Dr. Burns.

    Although I agree that Psychology and Psychiatry isn't pseudoscience, I think a lot of psychiatrists and psychologists don't really know how to treat people because they have never experienced the mental health conditions themselves (like depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc.) and they can't comprehend what it is like. Also, I think you have to go to several psychologists to find one that can really help you, I have been to a few and none of them were really helpful but I'm still looking. And finally to the OP point about how could the psychiatrist not know your anxiety was caused by porn addiction. Assuming you told him/her about your porn addiction, I don't think they have done enough studies to clinically prove that porn addiction can cause anxiety, and like the poster above me stated, the science and research about the effects of porn is still really early. I have social anxiety, and in the 80's psychologists and psychiatrists didn't even think it was a real condition, but now they have all kinds of treatments and medications for it. So I think the science behind the effects of porn addiction are still in it's infancy like how social anxiety was in the 80s.

    Psychologic problems are not so easy to diagnose like cancer or sth else.
    Even good doctor can;t help in some cases.

    Did you even inform them that of your porn-viewing habits? I'm going to take a wild guess and say you probably didn't.

    Many of these psychologists were educated in the days before internet porn was around. And even to our present time, there's still very little research that's actually done on the relation between pornography and social anxiety.

    Glad to say I've never been on medication for depression and the like. I suffered huge depression in high school after a breakup - my mother then told me depression runs in my blood. It's one of the documented things she knew about my biological parents. I've always thought taking medication for such things that aren't specifically health related is more of a short-cut than a fix. Those pills can really mess you up too and doctors aren't afraid to put you on a whole slew of drugs to keep the drug companies raking in cash.

    As for a therapist concerning most of our problems, take some shrooms in a nice open outside place with some friends and save yourself the time and money wasted on a 'professional'. Therapists should only be reserved for severe cases such as molestation issues or something.

    I feel you. I come from a foreign family (use of natural medicines, practices, etc.) and while my parents are both health professionals, we've always avoided any sort of prescription medications because they're so chronically damaging. And I'm so glad I never did.

    Instead, I worked out more, did acupuncture, therapy sessions, whatever but there was no damn way I was ever going to take prescription drugs. And that stays on your record permanently. So if you're running for President, you may not be seen as fit because of your history.

    So is this.

    No they don't. And even if that was the case, people are not animals!

    And it's unhealthy not to? Nope, so that kinda negates your point. LGBT activism, especially leftist, is part of an agenda to destroy the family and make men effeminate. The flood of pornography stuns the masses, makes them more animal and malleable to homosexuality. They even teach masturbation as normal to children, its truly sickening.

    Yes it is. Operational science has to be is observable, testable, falsifiable. The DSM has NO medical science to back it up. It's all fake science or pseudo science.

    Psychiatry is evil, they are legal drug pushers. It is the same industry who used to give people Lobotomys and torture people in "lunatic asylums" they stopped doing that when they realized they could become drug pimps but they still torture people today with electric shock treatment.

    There is nothing beneficial to SRI drugs. Not to mention they make people crazy, most the mass shootings are from people on them. They have a whole bunch of side effects like anxiety, suicidal thoughts, Increased risk of type 2 diabetes, Brittle bones, birth defects, impaired immune system, etc...

    Are you serious? You need chill out with this sort of stuff. We have a strong gay community here on the forums that you need to respect.

    You aren't here to push your ideology on people, Striveforpurity. You're here to help others and let others help you fix your addiction to pornography.

    I might be wrong to say many, but according to a wiki artical a range of species appear too.

    As to the rest, you can belive what you wish. LOL 'effeminate', I'd like to see you say that too a few gay guys, they arn't all like that ;D

    What sort of stuff? My criticism was of leftist LGBT activism, not of gay people as individuals. How have I tried to push my ideology on others? I was simply making the point that certain lobbies and people in society have led many Doctors to believe masturbation is a normal and healthy habit.

    I have refuted your defense of psychiatry and you have nothing left to say. I recommend you watch this film to save yourself from making uninformed opinions in the future. Good'day.
