From the Shaar ha'Tefillah by the Beer Mayim Chayim

"And it is not seemly and it is not proper for an intelligent person to run after the filth and desire of this sort, for why is he called man if not for having the spirit of man which ascends above and not that of a beast that descends below to the earth, and every intelligent person knows that it is proper for him to be different from a horse and a dog in his desires".

25 Steps to Beating Porn Addiction
 

Please check out the full guide to beating porn addiction in this and upcoming issues (For the first in the series, please refer to issue #1436). The creators of the infographic have taken each of the 25 strategies and provided clear practical actions to take in detail:

 

  1. Download A Website blocker And Get Your Life Back On Track

  2. You don’t have to set fire to your laptop, although the feeling might be tempting. There are two types of effective porn blocker or filter and they provide different benefits.

    The first is a full out parental control software that permanently filters out porn websites. It requires you to input a password to set up a network-wide ban and so you can’t override it. A highly recommended software to block porn is: Net Nanny. It is a full out parental control software that permanently filters out porn websites. It requires you to input a password to set up a network-wide ban and so you can’t override it. You have to pay for it, but then how much is your porn addiction costing you? You pay for what you get as well. This is the number 1 recommended porn blocker, award-winning and its range of features are simply unbeatable. It comes with a free trial as well, so what are you waiting for? If you are serious about giving up porn this could be the most important action you take today. Click here to download it today.

    The second option is a temporary blocker that you can turn on at the times you usually seek out porn. They come with a range of features. You won’t need a password with Stop Procrastinating. It will lock you out so you can’t get back online until the time is up for a period of up to 24 hours. You can either block the entire internet connection or filter out porn websites.

    Internet blockers like this help you overcome the need for a password, but also allow you to build up your self-control and discipline, an idea which many psychologists support.

Duvid Chaim writes some ideas to help those who contact him after a slip:
 
By Duvid Chaim

Dear Struggler,

First of all, you must congratulate yourself.

Think about it.

You actually experienced a slip, but by posting about it on the forum or by emailing or calling me to admit this, it means that you are getting out of isolation, learning to trust and getting in touch with your feelings. These are the first signs that you are truly making progress in recovery!

And NOW you are more AWARE, and you know that the acting-out experience just isn't as "rewarding" as before.

You now know deep down that this is not the place you want to be. And you know that Recovery is where it's at!

So don't be so hard on yourself.

You can now come back into the light!
