Hypnosis or Self-Hypnosis

This kind of treatment not mentioned by these two books. It surprises me. Hypnosis sometimes used by some professional psychologists. They have to have official training and license to use Hypnosis. Maybe authors of these books haven't one. But at least to mention it as an option! Or to mention it as a wrong way. Nothing. No one word about Hypnosis.

So what I've found so far... I've found the blog of one guy who succeeded to quit porn addiction with the help of Self-Hypnosis course. He relapsed after 8 moths. But it is a big success anyway. Here is the link to his blog:


I've not tried Self-Hypnosis yet, and somehow feel suspicious from this method. Maybe one day... Regards Hypnosis (not Self-Hypnosis) I feel scared, because I give somebody else the option to have full control on my unconscious, to insert into my mind something, that I don't know about it. It's pure fear. I talked with somebody who practiced Hypnosis on other people (just talked), and he told me that he never agreed to be hypnotized himself. Probably these are fear and power and control issues.

Even if Hypnosis or Self-Hypnosis can solve a problem of porn addiction, it is unlikely to be long lasting solution for somebody who suffers from very bad situation around him. I mean bad hated job, bad marriage, bad something, no future etc. If you leave a situation around you as is – you will relapse to porn, no matter how effective Self-Hypnosis or Hypnosis is.

Here is another link to Self-Hypnosis that I've found. It is about NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Self-Hypnosis techniques. NLP (as I heard) is a powerful, but short lasting technique for personality modification.


Anyway, good luck to you. If you know more details or success stories of porn addiction cured by Hypnosis or Self-Hypnosis – please let me know, leave your comments with links.
