Steps (4)

Step 1: Your Triggers

Introduction

Keep a diary to identify what triggers you to look at porn. Try keeping a diary of times when you felt tempted to access porn and any times that you followed through with the urges as well. Record how you were feeling, where you were, what time of day it was, and any other factors that you think may have contributed to your urge to access porn. Make a note of the feelings of shame and guilt that you felt afterward. Review your diary after 2 weeks to look for patterns.[1]

  • For example, you might notice that you tend to become aroused and access porn late at night, after watching movies that feature love scenes, or when you’re bored. Knowing these triggers can help you to be more mindful and prevent accessing porn.

Step 2: Pros and Cons

Introduction

Make a list of the pros and cons of accessing porn. Writing down all the reasons why you like and dislike using porn may help you to see it as more negative than positive. This may also help you to become more mindful of the habit. List anything that you view as positive about accessing porn under the pros side and everything you see as negative about it under the cons side.[2]

  • For example, under pros you might list things like “relaxes me,” “takes my mind off being lonely,” and “makes me feel good for a little while.” Under the cons side, you might list things like, “costs me money,” “makes me feel ashamed and dirty,” “displeases my Creator" and "will lead me to Hellfire."
  • Try keeping the list with you and reading over it often to help remind yourself of the reasons why you want to stop using porn.
  • Try to understand how the Shaytaan (devil) operates, how he takes advantage of human weaknesses and tries to weaken our faith by drawing us towards temptation.

Step 3: Blocking Your Temptations

Introduction

Block porn sites on your computer and other devices. This may be a good option if you find yourself mindlessly accessing them. Download a browser that makes it easy to block the porn sites or change the settings in your existing browser to make these sites off limits.[3]

  • Subscribe to an internet accountability service, which periodically sends a list of questionable websites visited and internet searches to a trusted confidant, religious leader or parent, to whom you will have then to account for your choices.
  • For a more extreme option, you might even cancel your home internet access for a month or two so that you will have no way of getting to porn sites while you are at home.

Step 4: Pray

Introduction

Turn to God by saying a prayer whenever you get the urge to access porn. If your faith is your primary motivation for quitting porn, praying will be a helpful strategy for you. Try saying a prayer every time you get the urge to access porn. Ask God to give you the strength to resist your urges and help you to become a better person. You might even write down the prayer to pull it out and recite it any time you feel tempted.
