Cultural Quote #406: Quitting Porn Is The Rite Of Passage For The Modern Man (Part II)

The second reason I think it’s good is because the level of self-control that you have to develop in order to do this is insane. The ability to overcome a porn or masturbation addiction, I think is fundamentally different than overcoming any other kind of addiction because, you know, in most cases, it’s like an instance of cutting out going to the liquor store, or a bar. Cutting out going to your drug dealer. But, for overcoming porn addiction, we always have access to porn. We always have smartphones. We always got access to the internet. And so the level of self-control and self-mastery needed to conquer is just on an entirely different level. Therefore, going through the process is that much more valuable because you become that much more powerful.
