Call it for what it is admission and acceptance of the fact that you're addicted to pornography and that you needed help is a great step in the journey towards your recovery. But it is not strong enough to keep you going on that journey. What is badly needed at that stage is to learn and to understand very clearly the negative consequences that may hit you if you don't quit before it's too late.

00:00:37--> 00:01:17

You also need to know where are you heading to what are the danger in your way that may prevent you from reaching your destination. So this is the stage that we're going to talk about today, you need to write down that clearly, if you do not name the problem and its consequences with your own hand, you will not be reminded of why you have started that journey in the first place, you may slip and forget about that journey and get lost in the middle of the road. And so along that journey, you need to be reminded that you have a beautiful wife, a very kind hearted husband, gorgeous children bright future,

00:01:59--> 00:02:41

everything that you could ask for you have it so without these constant reminders, without listing down to problems that may strike and take away everything beautiful that you have in this life, you may go back to the same old habit this can serve as a motivational cue as well, even stronger. Because when we remember the negative consequences that we may face that we may experience, we become terrified, we get scared. And when we get scared, we go back to our senses. We go back to reality, which is the exact opposite of the word of fantasy and imagination called pornography. Some people who have read my book beat it 50 plus shades of hope, where I discuss these points in great

Let me remind you of one fact you have kept that secret for long enough. So do not let your fear prevent you from doing what is right. naming the problem and its consequences and bringing it to your life very clearly is a very terrifying fact that will bring you to your senses.

your children, your reputation, your faith, your personality, your mental illnesses, and so on and so forth. Once you write these things very clearly, then an action will be required an action plan a strategy, how to come back and fix every area, one tip one step at a time, you can then start writing things that you think may get affected negatively in the future. If you do not quit now you have a very comprehensive and complete picture of the consequences that may hate your life and destroy it altogether as a result of your addiction to pornography.
