Have been fighting to quit mind but i keep failing pls guys share how u where able to quit yours, who motivated u and what where the steps u took?
Once an addict, always an addict.
It takes the grace of God and very rigid strong will to break an addiction.

It takes an addiction to stop an addiction,
Fat lies!
Addiction has its utmost point or level, where you would reach and you would found yourself galling at the addiction.
Everything has it's elastic point whereby if you are willingly you cut lose from it.
That was how someone created a post of his addiction to porn and some pple were advising him to see girls"s pants more whether by hookup or at brothel. Just because they want to make their empty assertion of "It takes addiction to stop an addiction" seemingly true.

(3) Rinse and repeat.

Mine was porn.

I always imagined that God who gave me the eyes I am using does not want me to watch it again. And one day when my eyes started paining me. I really feared and appreciated them. I promised to give it up. Its been years now, I have never watched porn again. Even when I was added in error to one porn telegram group, I quit it instantly. Thank God.

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.
Na true. Most of us na lack of job be our problem.

MANNABBQGRILLS:
We are addicted to Grilling,
There is no stopping us.

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.









Its not all abt praying mr

Some started from family issues


If u feel ur from a toxic background, break out for ur own life sakes

Don't fight it because u will loose. The best way to get over an addiction is by replacing it with another. Just throw the switch on something more worthwhile. For example If alcohol is ur addiction replace with a more healthy drink like fruit juices or smoothies, if its sex u can replace it with reading n learning new things, masturbating can be replaced with going out when u feel the urge n make new friends etc.. It wouldn't be easy sha but it worth it last last

I am addicted to books, John Grisham, Anne Rice, Dean Koontz, Ken Follet, Dan Brown, Chinua Achebe, Ngugi Wathiongo, Stephen King and myriads of them. Not excluding philosophers and their philosophy. Sorry can't quit such addiction!

woke up one day and said “f*ck this man, I'm done” and that was it for me.
Although I've noticed I don't really get addicted to something, I just really like doing something. Like there was once I was drinking almost everyday, for a long time and someone who also started this routine around the same time as I did got seriously addicted to it while one day I just stopped. The guy was totally confused as to how I did it, but even me sef I no know how.
Same thing with smoking.
I think it's all about the mindset, if you want to do something, you will do it, but if you want to stop doing it, and you really put your mind to it, you'll stop it.

CalvinGaye:
*Strict and disciplined Dopamine Fasting
-Dopamine is the Principal hormone 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. 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.
thanks for this piece of Hope
