Addiction is a product of developing an attachment to something or someone over time. It’s usually not easy to let go once you’re hooked, but it’s not impossible. I’m going to share some practical ways to handle addiction in any area of life.

 

MAKE THE DECISION TO STOP

The first step on your journey to being free of your addiction is actually taken on the inside. You have to develop a will, find a reason to quit whatever addiction you’re into. This helps to keep you focused on the task of getting free.

 

GET RID OF POSSIBLE TEMPTATIONS

Now that you’ve got the inspiration and determination to be free, the next step is to get rid of all the clutter that creates a suitable environment for you to engage in the activity. For example, if you’re addicted to porn, get rid of all adult magazines and erotic movies. If you surf the web for pornographic content, installing software that block adult sites/adverts is also recommended.

If you’re looking to quit binging, you should get rid of all the liquor around you. Whether natural (e.g. fermented fruit sugars) or industrially-prepared.

 

KEEP FIGHTING

You’re most likely going to get withdrawal symptoms. So, you best prepare for them.

This is because your brain has become used to the raised dopamine levels in the body, caused by your indulgence in these activities.

While you wait for your body to adjust to the normal dopamine levels, experts suggest that you engage in a sporting activity. For masturbation addicts, whenever you feel the urge, go for a quick run. This helps you release all the pent-up stress & frustration that may be compelling you to masturbate.

However, for drug & substance addicts, the next tip is probably the best option for you.
