I’m not the best person to answer it because I’m not into cigarettes and cigars.

However, from my point of view, porn takes away our masculinity, and we need this masculinity in order to succeed in life. Porn damages the way we see women, and prevent us from developing healthy friendships and relationships. In my opinion, porn addiction is worse.

Any user who is/was also addicted to smoking can comment?

About PMO addiction:

I had tried and failed many times. I couldn’t get long streaks. 3 days was my limit. When I read people saying that they were on day 35 I thought that this was impossible to achieve. But one day I started to see the whole idea of PMO as disgusting. And today I’m on day 391.

Definitely cigarettes! I have lost two uncles to cancer because of smoking. But no one to porn addiction. Smoking causes serious health conditions, it cannot be taken lightly

There are many who smokes and nothing happen to them, porn causes mental stress and depression in long term

@kt2021 that’s because I do not consider it as a streak, now it has become part of my lifestyle. I’m a man who doesn’t FAP. This is part of my identity now.

Smoking causes death long term…

It kills sooner than masturbation… Masturbation doesn’t kill in the first place

What you read is correct in that they have the same effect on the brain. They create new hard wired neural pathways for dopamine production. Which both increase the effect of the lymbic regions and less of the cortical. Which means you are addicted to those things. You can’t take well thought decisions around them. You just think this = dopamine and you’ll do nearly anything to get that fix.

This neral pathway is the same for anything addictive, whether it’s porn or drugs or smoking or even spicy food. Anything that induces dopamine is capable of creating an addiction.

Or course, smoking causes cancer so it is more of a threat to life, yes.

But your question as to which addiction is more harmful, personally I find irrelevant. It doesn’t matter if cyanide is more deadly than Napthele. They are both poisons in the end. The aim is to avoid them, not find out which one is more harmful.

I am just asking to see what other people think about it. But the level of dopamine releases by watching porn is very high as compare to other things which makes it more addictive

Smoking addiction is more harmful.
Porn also does damage but not as much as smoking

My highest score is I’m not sure but somewhere like 9 or 11.
And it was a really bad day. I spent the whole day fapping. Damn if I do it even once or twice now I’ll feel sick. I can probably still do 4 times to quench my lust but no one wants to get lusty. :joy:
I’m so glad to be out of this.
What are your scores bois? :rofl:
