  1. For anyone interested, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is also a tool for creating new neural pathways in the brain. My husband and I are trying it with his addiction and he seems to have gotten some relief. His addiction goes way back to childhood, so we’re trying to change over 40 yrs of negative pathways. So far, the EFT and Covenant Eyes are the only things that have helped. Besides prayer of course, and I believe those prayers are what led us to both of these tools.

  2. I have used Blessing as a tool to help victims of trauma with a negative self image, to reframe the patterns of their mind by starting to think blessings. Blessing is seen as thinking good thoughts about others in Jesus name. Only thoughts have already effect on others, if they are open to it (eg. “mirror-neurons”). Some of my students, in the metro on her way to work, decided to just bless people, asking Jesus what she can bless them with. One can never make an embarrassing mistake in this, as one doesn´t say anything. She reported three different reactions, a head that turns away, a questioning/angry look and a friendly looking reply, often with a light smile. This has helped her to realise how rich she is in Jesus, that she can do that, in His name… One only needs to decide: “I want to do that” and let one´s eyes do the rest…

  3. I liked Romans 7:15-24 for years. But when I realized that I am addicted to porn, I suddenly saw this Romans 7:15-24 in lights, like explanation of symptom of addiction: at the same time you crave for your addiction and you are aware that you wont stop with it; at the same time you like addiction and you don’t like your addiction.

  4. I was reading the article about the ultimate porn blocker and was intrigued by the comment “With any addiction, the choice to re-wire our brain and begin blocking porn from our thoughts is never easy and takes hard work.”.
    I had an addiction for close to 50 years and tried the hard work methods but was ultimately delivered and believe it or not it wasn’t hard work!
    If it’s hard work it won’t work.

  5. In the past I tried but I feel helpless. I guess I’m reaching out for help. I can’t do it alone. And with the constant problem I had for decades I think I lost god and his active force. So now I’m in a worse state.

    • Hello, Martin – there is no pit dark enough or deep enough to separate you from God. Please read Romans 8 for encouragement, especially the end. NOTHING can separate you from His love. Anything you might feel that comes against that is from the enemy, the father of lies. Have you read the parable about the prodigal son? That’s you. God is standing arms wide open.

  6. It is good to know that i am not the only person hoe struggling with this, i red through your artical i will implement in my life and give you feed back. Thanks for your blog my you belessed .
