          Pornography is in many ways like a drug to the brain and with continuous exposure people find themselves addicted to it and their tolerance increases much like any other drug. Just like a drug it leads to the loss of control over oneself and compulsiveness to engage in the activity more despite of the negative consequences. Long term exposure may lead to permanent changes in the neural network. Dopamine (DA) is produced when ever we feel happy or accomplish something. This Dopamine sort of  re-wires your brain to perform the same action again and again thus leading to addiction. So, what is produced as a New-Normal becomes more and more evident and our brain/body craves for this Dopamine to regain that new Homeostasis (the new equilibrium). This Dopamine is produced during sexual excitement and now you know the reason for addiction. Along with Dopamine some other hormones like Serotonin, Norepinephrine

This may also lead to finding your mate less attractive.

The neural connections which you use tend to get Stronger and Stronger while those which you don't tend to get weakened and ultimately you tend to lose those qualities. So, Get more good habits and Avoid or Ignore the bad habits and you will come out of the Trap Cycle. Some experts view pornography as a dysfunctional view of society towards sexuality.
   
     Any way now you know that Pornography become a great problem to a person and it potentially capable of getting you in to troubles. So, beware and BE AWARE.  :)
