Being a programmer and addicted to porn is a challenge, thus most work is in front of the screen. It's like trying to stop drugs but you work in a drug factory...

I've realized that it highly affects my ability to focus on code.

And btw, don't come with this is a reddit nofap comment, it's applicable here thus its for developers.

    I don’t know that the “drug factory” analogy works. Are you developing for porn sites? Also don’t see a question here.

    @Alice Sorry, I forgot to change it to a rant.

    This is not a question.

    @broseph Porn is easy to access, within seconds as long as you got internet.

    That is the point.

    Well, don't watch porn. Hammer the negatives that come from porn into your head. Don't give in to your reward system. You might want to find an accountability partner on the subreddit you mentioned.

    i agree it can be a problem...
    people get fired for this, some because are careless, but some others actually have a problem.

    everytime I can I say this: fuck nofap, pornfree is better (as long as you don't whack it 10 times a day)

    addendum to previous comment: Definitely do something else. Your brain thinks of watching porn? Do something else that occupies you. Take the stress the urge gives you and use it for something else. Either actually writing code, or if the tempation from your screen is overwhelming, do something physical (and non-sexual, ideally)

    I mean. I watch a *lot* of porn. But I can’t say I’ve ever felt like cracking open pornhub while I’ve been sat at my desk...

    Can’t you just run to the bathroom and rub one out? Mobile internet is a wonderful thing.

    If it’s genuinely that much of a problem for you, I’d recommend seeking medical help, as if it’s legitimately interfering with your life and normal functioning, then it’s time to get help.

    @Brolls I mean, i would do the same as you, but he said he was an addict, so if he truly is, I don't think just one pop in the bathroom will do it.

    op when you mean addict, how bad is rhe case here?

    I hear going overweight can reduce sex drive, so if not overweight, get overweight. :-)

    Naaah I don’t believe that. Not that i’m overweight or have many overweight friends but I’ve been many different body types but never lost my drive =p

    Cycling can also cause issues, so maybe take up cycling !

    Though I'm not sure the damage there is so easily reversible..

    It reminds me when I was underweight, I read all those diet books on what not to do, and did that !

    @erandria Difficult to work and focus because the mind wants to go the easy way, which is looking at porn.

    @Nanos No, why should that be a problem...

    @Nanos this is true. Being overweight reduces your testosterone production. Which also means lower sex drive, lack of motivation, depression and other mood problems. All in all, I wouldnt recommend it ;)
