How to deal with a pornography addiction


Q: I think my husband may have an addiction to Pornography. I discovered an obscene amount of is on his computer. in the past our intimate lives have been stagnant and I assumed he looked at porn, however over the last 5 months our love life has significantly improved. This morning however I discovered he had visited a certain website that hosts Adult Gifs and "hardcore images". The worst part was that he visited this site not 5 minutes before we were intimate. He knew I was taking a shower beforehand, so its not like he didn't know we were about to have sex. I confronted him and his reply was "just like smoking it takes time". I have confronted him about looking at porn about a week ago. Does this sound like addiction, and what type of doctor do I go to so that I can understand this and not feel bad about myself?

Symptoms:  I am pregnant so I may be overly emotional
