Addicted to internet porn


#1

A few months ago I had the op for Deep Brain Stimulation. Everything has been going well and I have reduced my meds by half. However, just lately I have been looking at what I can only describe as “inappropriate material” on the web. has anyone else experienced this and how did they manage to break the habit. I am a happily married man by the way.

Hi Christo no experience re DBS but husband had similar problem on DA’s be upfront with your wife and let her put on and be in charge of controls on your router or you may find yourself watching harder and harder porn and maybe even getting into legal difficulties should you download it ALL THE BEST

Hi @Christo,

I appreciate that this probably isn’t the easiest subject to talk about, but your addiction could be a possible side effect to your Parkinson’s medication. We’ve had quite a lot discussion on this topic with people who have experienced similar side effects here - Hypersexuality and Mirapexin

Aside from the information on this thread which you’ll probably find very helpful, at the very least you’ll be reassured that you’re not the only person going through this. We also have a lot of information on impulsive and compulsive behaviour on our website here - https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/impulsive-and-compulsive-behaviour

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,
Reah
