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:

Understanding Your Triggers

    Think about what happens before you start viewing porn. Are you having difficulty concentrating, are you bored, alone, had an argument, or are you feeling down? Is being in a particular room more likely to result in your viewing porn?

    Think through these triggers and try to remove them from your life. This will be easier once you have blocked porn from your computer. Try to replace the triggers with an activity that blocks the urge.

    We’ll cover the list below in more detail, but here’s a few options to start you off. There’s a lot more interesting activities out there then looking at porn alone on your computer!

    Replace the urge with an activity that blocks the urge:
    • Listen to comedy.
    • Use social media
    • Arrange to meet a friend
    • Play a computer game.
    • Plan to meet a girl.
    • Listen to music.

Do you think you may have a porn addiction?
 

Do you have a problem with obsessive and compulsive porn use? Have you seriously tried the tools on GYE and feel that you are not getting better? Maybe it’s time to consider joining a 12-Step program.

Porn Anonymous (PA)
If you’re compulsively acting-out with pornography and masturbation we suggest you explore joining Porn Anonymous (PA). If you need help deciding whether to join PA, call Michael at 347-699-2368, or email help@pornanonymous.org to schedule a time to talk. For more information visit pornanonymous.org (Hebrew: p-a.org.il / Yiddish: pa-yid.org).

Sexaholics Anonymous (SA)
If your compulsive acting-out has progressed beyond the screen (with other people, paid sexual services, etc.) we suggest you explore joining Sexaholics Anonymous (SA). To figure out if SA is for you, call Dov at 917-414-8205, or email Dov at dov@guardyoureyes.org to schedule a time to talk. For more information visit www.sa.org.
