A Simple First Step to Stop Watching Porn: Location, Location, Location

Are you feeling discouraged by giving in to your porn habit?  Wondering what to do next?  I have one question worth asking yourself.  Where do you find yourself watching porn the most?  Is it your bedroom, bathroom or basement?  Identifying this is very important.

Why?

For many people, watching porn is an escape from whatever is going on in their life and so is the actual location they watch porn in.  For example, when I was younger, my basement was a great escape. There were video games, tv to watch and, most important to me, a place I could avoid interacting with people and my homework.  Unfortunately, it was not only an escape but also a place where I would find myself triggered and fantasizing about sexual desires.  It’s safe to say most porn use is done alone and in a private location, like mine was.  I don’t know which location is your escape to watch porn in, but I hope this challenge can be helpful.

Make this stumbling location your most productive goal-setting location.  

What if your bedroom became your goal-setting centre?  When you are there it is your space to plan goals for your day, week, month or years ahead. Or, maybe your basement becomes your painting, drawing, hobby location.  Maybe your bed becomes the place you go to try reading that book you have always wanted to read.

I have a friend who struggled with watching porn in his bathroom and masturbating in the shower afterwards.  What if the bathroom/shower became the new place where you devote time to praying, meditation or just a room where you try to spend time thinking of others and how you can help them or worry for them? Some of my friends leave a novel or the Bible in there and pick it up to read a page or two.

These are just some of many examples.  Overcoming a porn addiction is very difficult.  You have to teach your brain new ideas and habits.  

Start today by turning your escape room into your new freedom room.
