A:   Hello
Thanks for using "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.

Pornography addiction is very common and will require proper treatment. This involves use of naltrexone or fluoxetine medicines accompanied with behavioural therapy and activity scheduling.
Do meet your doctor and get these medicines prescribed and for behavioural therapy and activity scheduling a psychologist will be a good person to contact. this thing is not very uncommon and is treatable. So please don't hesitate and reach out for help.

Hope this helps,
Wish you a good health
