Voyeur addiction hurting my reboot, help!

    Currently a few weeks into my reboot, I'm pretty much successful in terms of staying away from internet porn at this point. However, as I was walking home at night a week ago I heard some sex noises. I ended up spying on a young couple having sex through their blinds and I got MASSIVELY triggered, it was the first time I saw anything like that in real life.

    Since then, I've been having strong urges to spy on couples, or just single women undressing. I know that this is surely going to hurt my reboot not to mention morally wrong, so I've been fighting these urges. But the urges are strong, and feels kinda different from normal porn urges. Does anyone else have this problem? Should I seek professional help?

    That is the most natural thing in the world, and it's why men like porn in the first place!

    See, we've evolved from polyamorous gangbangs, not monogamy.
    Unlike most animals who compete for offsprings physically (e..g gorillas), humans do so at the sperm level
    So when we see other people having sex, we get turned on more to increase the quality of insemination.
    There's hard evidence to back it up, and numerous videos, articles and and research by top scientists all over the world. But it will never go mainstream as it threatens the social structure that this world is built on.

    Your real life peeping experience, has nothing to do whatsoever with pixellated porn addiction.
    In an ideal world we should have all experienced this on a regular basis, it's positive.
    But addiction is about craving that dopamine rush, to escape real life problems.
    And like an addict, you're already doing things that might cause you irreparable damage (criminal/social)

    So I'm not here to offer advice, but hope the information above (which is kept from the public) will click something in your brain, all the best bro

    Is this guy really saying that voyeurism is good and positive? Lol...fucking hell.

    To the OP, deep down you know what's wrong or not for you. You don't need people to tell you what you should do, you already know the truth. Just follow your heart, and stop indulging in any habit that you know is harming you or causing shame. If you can't do it on your own then get some support by joining a group or something

    Nah man, I said the first experience was positive & natural (similar to hearing your neighbor moaning)
    But it led to something bad, understanding this distinction is crucial.

    At this point in your reboot, your brain will try to convince you of anything in order to get a shot of dopamine. (It's so damn sneaky it will have you relapsing to porn to avoid worrying about the voyeurism thing.)

    In other words, you are not a pervert, and you don't need professional help. Try not to worry about this attraction, because too much fear can itself be a cause of relapse. Try to see it for what it is - an infatuation caused by a brain that's suddenly been put on a dopamine diet.

    Don't act on it and it will pass.
