Maybe you can resonate with this.
Not that long ago, when I would feel the intense craving to watch porn, if I didn't give into it right away I would often go into scrambling mode. "Should I go for a walk? Maybe if I watch a favorite show or movie, the desire will go away. What if that doesn't work? And what do I do after the show is over?!" When I found myself flooded with the urge to watch porn, it felt like I was grasping at straws. Not only was I not thinking as clearly, I literally didn't know what to do. I desperately wanted to not give in to the urge. I was so over it. I was ready to be done with the shame, the guilt, the fear of being found out. I was desperate for freedom. But I was at a loss what to do with that intense desire! Nothing that I had tried ever gave me a winning track record. Can you relate at all? Well, I have excellent news for you. I finally discovered that there IS an effective, applicable, concrete way to handle and process that intense desire in a healthy way, so you don't have to give in to it. I've broken it down into four steps called the P.A.T.H. Plan. When I discovered this and decided to implement it, for the first time in over two decades I felt confident in relation to this struggle. I felt empowered. I felt ready for the next urge. I was almost looking forward to it, because I knew it would be another "practice session" to get better with this plan and build what I found out was actually a skill. I went from grasping at straws to saying, "I got this!" Would you like this same confidence? Would you like to go from feeling unsure to unshaken? When you have a plan in place, a concrete, step by step, actionable plan, your confidence skyrockets. If you don't already have it, get a free one-page copy of the P.A.T.H. Plan at newpaths.me/plan. Make the P.A.T.H. Plan your go-to the very next time the urge hits you. You CAN have confidence and hope that freedom is possible for you! Journeying with you, Dan P. S.
