    • For some people addiction can come in a single exposure of Internet pornography!
    • For others it may take two weeks.
  2. Pornography is harder to stop "using" than cocaine or alcohol because the Pictures stay in your head to tease, tantalize and encourage curiosity to see more. They can't be erased and easily become an ever-increasing appetite.
  3. According to Attorney General John Ashcroft 90% of young people 8-16 have been exposed to pornography.
