Is porn addiction different than other addictions?

Is there such a thing as porn addiction? Can someone really be addicted to porn?

Well, if porn addiction is real and you are addicted to porn, whatever you do, do not take your addiction to work and especially DO NOT go to porn chat websites while you are sitting at your desk. Now this is something you would think you need to tell someone who is new to the internet and not a seasoned IBM professional. After all IBM is one of, if not the leader in Information Technology. You would think that everyone at IBM know that whatever you do on the internet can be traced back to you.

Apparently this did not prevent an IBM employee from logging on to an adult chat site at work even after being warned. IBM eventually fired this employee, but now he is suing the company and saying that he deserved sympathy and treatment for his addiction and not dismissal.

Is he serious? “Sympathy and Treatment”? Does he mean like the sympathy given to crack addicts? Why wasn’t the employee being proactive and seeking the appropriate treatment the first time he was warned?

If porn is really an addiction, then porn addicts should be treated like any other addict. A crack head don’t get to smoke crack at the work place and keep their job. Likewise an alcoholic can’t drink at his desk and keep his job.

I am not mad at this man for trying what he can, but the defense he came up with is laughable at best.
