Is this a scam?

Welcome to the site.
Well, you see if watching pornography has become an obsession for you meaning that if it has taken precedence over important things of your life and if not watching porn makes you feel anxious, agitated and restless then yes it is an unhealthy habit that you have formed and you must give it up since any type of obsession is pathological and it needs to be taken care of.
So, I will suggest that you start by cutting down on watching pornography and use that time and energy in doing something constructive or even activities that bring you joy and fun. Slowly you shall further reduce the number of hours invested by you in watching porn until you end up giving it up on a regular basis.
If you find that you have become too much dependent on porn so much so that you cannot cut down on it on your own then in that case you can seek help from a clinical psychologist who can use a specialized therapy called as ERP ( Exposure Response Prevention ) therapy to help you this decompensating unhealthy addiction .
You may feel otherwise about this issue and may perhaps think of it as something non serious and temporary but may I inform you that if this addiction is not given up soon it may snowball into a more serious pathological dependence which will start affecting your personal, professional and social domains of life.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best.
