Porn is affecting relationships, productivity, and everything in between. If you wanna learn why porn addiction is as bad as other addictions, check this video by Andrew Huberman out.

I thought I was an Alcohol addict until I stopped drinking. I thought I was a porn addict until I stopped using porn. I thought I was a sex addict until I stopped having sex. Then I realised I was just trying to escape from the pain and discomfort in my life by getting high whatever it was that gave me that high. I now face those demons full in the face. And you know? They are actually not that scary. Those fears I have been running from all my life were based of faulty core beliefs. The discomfort I  feel by facing them is a fraction of the pain that is caused by trying to avoid them. I lean into the discomfort, pick it apart and realise it isn't such a big deal, and actually I can live with those feelings while focusing on what is important to me.

Facts! Yes! 100%!
Although addiction is a real thing, I think you were addicted to alcohol, porn, sex etc., you simply broke these addictions one by one. But ultimately what you're saying underpins the difference between abstinence and recovery. Recovery means learning to live your life mindfully, not just stopping unwanted numbing/exciting/escapist behaviour.
