Creates False Intimacy
Due to the increasing number of divorce cases or the break up of relationships involving one or both partners having online pornography addiction it is obvious that this is a growing problem. The people who engage in online affairs tend to believe that they haven’t committed adultery or cheated simply because they haven’t had physical relations with the person they are romancing. They spend many hours at a time online looking at digital images (pornography) instead of spending time with their true love. In many cases this addiction causes a false sense of intimacy. It's a mind-set of blood hungry lust, seeing something you can't have. This addiction has caused many divorces to occur and we believe we can help!

Is it really Cheating on your Loved One?
The answer is YES, every moment you spend in an online relationship or activity is time you could be spending with the people in your life who matter to you. The more time you spend in cyberspace, the more you neglect those relationships. Regardless of whether cyber-relationships are true relationships, the repercussions of them on you, your partner, family and friends are exactly the same as an offline illicit relationship. By not addressing this issue, you are also putting off the work you need to do to help yourself have richer and more fulfilling offline relationships.
