Porn Almost Killed Me

Porn Almost Killed me

How porn slowly made me ill.

 

Starting in my teen years I developed this strange recurring illness that no one could figure out.  Every month to two months, like clockwork I would get sick.  My illness would start out as a sore throat with severe tiredness then I would come down with a fever.  These episodes would last a few days and only went away when I slept them off.

My parents and I were concerned, did I have a disease?  I went to my internist until he exhausted his resources.  He sent me to cardiology, ENT and even infectious disease.  They all found nothing!

This illness was not in my head as a few people had suggested!  I just accepted the fact that I would be sick the rest of my life and there was nothing that could be done.  Boy was I really discouraged.

I only saw relief from my sickness when I quit using porn!  Looking back on the whole sickness period of my life, there was only one constant involved along the way and that was my using porn.

I have researched this to see if I could find any evidence that these two issues were related.  Here is what I have found out.

  • Pornography usage is very similar to drug usage in that it causes ‘feel good’ substances to be released in your body.  This fact is one of the biggest reasons why people become addicted.
  • Dopamine is one of those chemicals release in your body that is associated with pleasure.  These are release when doing drugs or pornography.
  • Too much dopamine released into your body can cause a weakening of the immune system.
  • Too much dopamine decreases the amount of serotonin in your body which is critical to sleep cycles.  Lack of sleep wreaks havoc on your immune system.
  • A weakened immune system allows you to get sick.

I firmly believed that pornography almost killed me.  I was getting sicker and sicker and no one could diagnose me.

Now I only get sick whenever something is going around.

Life without porn is better!

  1. Thanks for your story and research. Excess porn can make anyone ill. Starting with sore throat and allergy like symptoms like sneezing runny / blocked nose and some digestive problems.
    In my opinion watching excess pornography is a very stressful emotional act for our body and we know any type of emotional or physical stress can weaken our immune system. If stress hormone
    like “cortisol” is constantly high in our bloodstream it actually shuts down the immune system.
    If your immune system is not working properly then the activity of harmful bacteria, virus, fungi
    ( like candida ) increases. They can easily make you ill in different ways. Steady immune function
    always suppress and controls these harmful virus, bacteria, fungi.
    Immune system is like border security force, if the force is weak then foreign invaders can easily attack us but if the force is strong then invaders will be unable to do any harm.

    • Thanks Ranjan. I lived that for years of being on and off sick. I didn’t know that cortisol was contributing as well. Stress is very bad for the body!

  2. Crazy stuff! I bet there are guys out there who are sick all the time because of their porn addictions. Remember how your mother or teacher used to warn you about going blind!!
