Perpetual cycle

by GYE (See all authors)

Someone who is addicted to por-nogrophy lives in a perpetual cycle, that alternates between three basic states.

1) Void: A feeling of a deep void of "I need, need need". Not a very happy state, to say the least.

2) Giving in: Letting go to "supposedly" fill the void.

3) Depression: A deep inner depression for feeling powerless to break free of this viscous cycle, of living a double life and living against one's own's beliefs and standards... These feelings lead to another void, and so, back to state 1.

What a sad and pathetic existence such a man lives.

People need to know, it is possible to break free! It may take some mental and spiritual surgery, but it is well worth it. We have to be willing to let G-d take it away from us, as we pray " Mal es livaveinu le'ahavah uleyira es shimecha" - "circumcise our hearts to love and fear you". Sometimes these things have become deeply ingrained in our sub-conscious, through the years of abuse. We need to give it up and let G-d take away this aspect of our lives that is destroying us from within. And if you make the journey and break free, not only have you earned your place in the world to come, but in this world too, none of the three depressing states that we mentioned above will remain with you. Life will suddenly take on new meaning and happiness.
