Pornography addiction – abstinence is not a cure.

I recently met with a man who had a problem with pornography, but he had not viewed it in about two months. This was because his wife discovered his problems, and access to pornography had been cut off. However, he was still wrestling with his pornography problem.  I had him visualize a scene where he accidently comes across some pornography on-line, and I asked him how strong he felt a pull to look at it.  At first he denied there was any pull; thoughts of having to tell his wife he had looked at porn made him want to turn away from the image.  That was a good thing.  But where he had had a problem many times was away from home on a business trip.  So, I had him imagine this scenario alone in a hotel room, and he had to admit the desire to look was around 9 out of ten.

I have worked with others who have managed abstinence from pornography for a period of time, some as long as two years.  Yet, they still wrestled with cravings and desire for pornography.  As I coach people through the EFT process, the desire to view pornography grows weaker and weaker.  The gentleman I mentioned above – his desire to view started at a 9, but by the end of our first visit he rated the pull to look at pornography was down to a 1 out of ten.  That is a huge difference that abstinence did not make.  Most of the people I work with are free of all desire for pornography within a two or three months, some even sooner than that.  Once we identify the emotions and beliefs and triggers that are driving the craving, give th burden of the guilt and shame to Christ, the person simply doesn’t want pornography.  It is such a relief to be free of that pull, free to take ones life in a healthy, positive direction.  If you or anyone you know is struggling with a pornography problem, I can help, money back guarantee!  Please give me a call to start a new life now!  (435)226-0013
