It’s never too late to bring back your old routinesBecause of porn I've been procrastinating on many things. That fire I used to feel in me to do something bigger in my life ,porn has worked as a fire extinguisher on it. There was a time when i used to do Yoga, meditation and my religious practices on time.
My smartphone constantly reminds me of porn and sometimes it gets difficult for me to resist. Any suggestions regarding this?
Thank you brotherGlad you're back on the wagon, bro. You'll get through this stronger.
Now, how often do you use your phone outside of studying? If possible, do you think you could set timers while studying to stand up, get a glass of water, do some stretches, maybe even go for a walk? Anything to get up and distract yourself for a brief spell?
I making a preventive plan for some of my major triggers or cues. Any suggestions?
That's a new idea. For this, I have to apply for a Weapon licence .Well, I do have one sorta off-the-wall idea that may or may not work for you. A while back, I got ahold of this decorative broadsword that I keep around my room. Sometimes, if the urges are screaming in my ear, I'll go and slide it out of its sheathe and give it a few swings. Something about big, forceful physical actions seems to reassert my sense of dominance over myself. I'm not sure if you're the type to just have medieval weaponry lying around, but even if it's just something like a cane or a ruler or something, if you've got a nice clear space, maybe giving it a few swings and stabs could get you re-focused when your grip is slipping.
Weird idea, but unconventional enemies call for unconventional strategies. Other than that, remember that we all believe in you, bossman.
Strong urges kicked up before bed. Prayed to god to help me.
Thanks for this suggestion brother. I will surely do it.Oh, and another thing that may or may not help, especially with the urges in bed. Take your scriptures into bed with you. Read a portion if you need encouragement, and otherwise keep them closeby.
Might seem a little odd, but it's helped me in a pinch. You're doing great, man!
