Session 2: Focus on your cognitive activities not your behaviours
It starts with your cognitive (step 1 to 5 activities), not with your behaviours; All about your thinking and taking back control of what for years you have allowed to go into your thinking and fantasy through the conduits of your visual, smell, sound and touch; they have set up the objectification and fantasy and low dose of Dopamine, Oxytocin and other neurochemical building over hours and days, leading to a trigger and strong desire to “Act out”. “Where did that trigger come from? – is often the retort. “If you can change your Mind, YOU can change your Life”. Literally, you can.Take back control of your eyes by using R.A.I.D, Bouncing, 3 seconds Rule and Journalling. We look at “What I wish I’d known before watching porn” and identify with the numerous others who share the same frustration. The behaviours always, but always end bad – even if not for many many years into your full lived life. They will always have cost you way more than you ever calculated. Let’s calculate the full cost and repercussions using and Exercise – Harmful Consequences.
