"Porn addiction similar to that of heroin mixed with cocaine"

Author of Digital Cocaine, Brad Huddleston, says people who are addicted to pornography get to the stage where the brain demands them to watch pornography that is increasingly more shocking and vulgar.

Huddleston draws from neuroscience to explain the effect that pornography has on the brain, porneia.

He says the addiction is similar to that of heroin mixed with cocaine.

He explains that porneia may result in abuse and distort how people perceive sex.

Because it's a cocaine-like addiction... 'you never say to a cocaine addict that you just need balance, it's all about moderation'.

Huddleston says digital detox is the only solution.

The truth is with cocaine and heroin addiction, and if it has crossed over to addiction you have to stop.
