1.Accept the problem

First, admit that you have a problem. If you don’t, then there is no way you are going to seek help. Remember, accepting that a problem exists is the first step of resolving it.

2.Find alternative uses on internet

Try spending a day without watching porn. If you succeed, reward yourself with something you have always wanted that you can afford at that time. After a day, try three days, a week and make the gifts much greater, but more far between until you can go whole month or more. Meanwhile, find something else to do occupy you.

6.Spend more time with your online and offline support group

A support group could be your loved ones, family, and friends, or even members with the same issues as you. Spending time with them will keep your mind and thoughts focused in the right places. When you spend time with them, you can trust them with your problem and share your stories and encourage one another.

7.Seek therapy

Most addictions have an underlying emotional issue that a therapist can help you get under. Also, professionals will give your problem a more tactical and medical approach that is more likely to help you.

8.Educate yourself

If you are going through this addiction, you need to get your hands on as many resources as you can. Find yourself sources where you can learn how to overcome that addiction on websites. More so, look into various techniques and methods that people have employed in the past that were successful
