*Strict and disciplined Dopamine Fasting
-Dopamine is the Principal neurotransmitter behind ALL addictions.

*Fervent Prayers
-Ask the holy Spirit for guidance and Scriptural revelations to inspire and strengthen you.
To help you regain your God-given POWER of self control.

*Create new and better habits(neural pathways)
-Neurons that wire together fire together. Replace old or UNWANTED thoughts and actions with NEW, BETTER, and PRODUCTIVE ones(YES!! you can). With time, your Brain neurochemistry will get used to this and THAT'S IT.
This is called NEUROPLASTICITY.

*Be Realistic and Patient
-You didn't create your old habits IN A DAY, and certainly won't do the same with NEW ones.
Accept that You have to apply consistent effort to both Obliterate old ways and pick up new/better ones.
Moreso a part of these old habits will still be alive in you(maybe for the rest of your life). You just have to try MANAGING THEM IN A MORE CONTROLLED Manner and not letting yourself get overridden and somewhat enslaved to it again.

We are addicted to Grilling,
There is no stopping us,
Cos we don't wanna STOP!

For bad and negative addictions,
Try as much as possible not to think about it.
Make your mind up to stop and pray along with that.
All the very best.

I got busy. Let me tell you the truth guys an idle mind is truly the bla bla bla workshop. If you have any sexual related addiction such as masturbation, your best way to overcome it is to get a job, get busy. If you are in the factory as a machine operator and leave the machine to run inside the toilet to go and masturbate, that is when I will believe you are addicted, that is when you should seek psychological help(therapy).Apart from that you are not addicted, you are just jobless.

It takes an addiction to stop an addiction, what we dread most as humans are addiction but if at all we found ourselves in one we should fancy out a good habit make it an addiction to be able to beat that other addiction, you don't just stop an addiction it takes prayer(as a religious person) and determination to stop one. Peace

Happy Sunday to all Nairalander

I Know say the thing dey worry him too much .... so last week ... he came to me looking so depperesed , i asked him why ... he told me that this sex addiction thing is getting out of hand ooooo , he told he that 3 girls a day no dey do him again .... that he cannot sleep again without having a party .....

that is when i know say .... the girl weah do that guy this juju settle down run that stuff ooooo .... so i started thinking of a way to set my guy free ...

i went to one old baba .... the man laughed after telling him the story .... he asked me to call my guy and ask him ... if he can have sex when ever he get injury for his GBOLA ..... Na him my guy come reply me .... which kind of useless question is that one ..... but after much bragging .... he come ask me .... who go fit knack when he get injury for GBOLA ....

So that Old baba laughed and gave me one stuff .... he told me that if my guy wants to stop having sex too much , that he should help himself .... let him be using that stuff weah he give me ...

i asked the man if the stuff na charm .... he said NO ..... say anywhere the stuff Drop for human skin ... say without you even knowing that the stuff will give you small soft INJURY oooooo...

i went him , call my Guy and gave him the stuff .. i explained everything to him .... , Dear Nairalanders ... the guy nearly killed me oooo , he i wan destroy hin Gbola ....

But after much aguement ... the guy come agree ... because that the only way left.

he come use that stuff .... use broom stick collect 1 drop , but it on top his GBOLA CAP ... and wipe it .... later him come discover say small injury dey there ...

E Take the injury 2 weeks to heal perfectly ..... during that time , to masturbate dey even hard for him ...... talk more of putting his gbola in any hole ...

this is how my guy no knack for 2 weeks oooo ....

He come tell me say after that 2 weeks , say the first time weah he touch a babe ... say the stuff sweet ooooo die ...

Then get busy.

Na me motivate myself

You can fully take charge of what happens in your life..... Determination is the sole key.

Forget Motivational quotes or speeches...even if you like listen to it from now till December....if you NEVER conclude within you to put an end to the stuff wey you dey do..you no go stop am.

The thing about addictions or habits is that you either outgrow/get tired of them or you replace them with new ones

First of all, tell us what your addiction is. Then, someone that overcame that particular addiction will tell how how he did it.

What are you hiding your addiction for?
