Chronic patterns: Obsessively engaging in porn or any activity creates strong pathways in the brain that make other activities less desirable. However the pattern can be changed with persistence because of neuro plasticity.

It appears that you: Have created a very focused conditioned response to porn. A mental health professional such as a psychologist can help you broaden your options. Peace and good health.
