Compulsive behavior is anything that you do against your higher intentions. (Doing what you don’t want or not doing what you do want.) These behaviors are often involuntary because they run on primal biological drives… but that doesn’t mean you need to be a slave to them.

In this episode we speak specifically on porn addiction and “laziness” as they show the different extremes of compulsion. We cover the biology of desire, behavior-hormonal correlation, and practical actions for overcoming compulsion.
