What’s up guys…..
It’s been a bit since I’ve wrote on here. The honest truth is I have been busy and am thinking of taking on some other projects.
In addition, I have taken some time to question many of my beliefs and will share this with you on another day.
Today I just want to briefly touch on addiction.
I firmly believe we live in a society which is filled with potential addictions at every corner.
The list goes on.
If you can conquer your addictions in this day and age, you are a powerful man.
In my own case pornography was an addiction I had battled with for a long time……
Addiction is a form of choicelessness (if that’s a word).
Caving into one dopamine craving after another….. every time a temptation meets you, you cave.
But when you conquer an addiction you are building an extremely powerful skill: The ability to postpone pleasure and “choose” the person you’d like to become.
Each week you don’t quit pornography you are further digging yourself into a cycle of choicelessness, dooming yourself to become a man filled with apathy, anxiety, and depression.
Each week you can’t put down the booze you are ensuring a future of poor health and mental decay.
The smart phone is another rotten addiction of modern times. If you can’t put your phone down for more than a couple hours……you are addicted.
“How do I break the cycle”, you ask.
There is nothing that I or anyone else can do to break you out of your addictions.
I can only speak for myself and what has worked for me.
Two things (and they are very simple):
- Realize the path of choicelessness you are heading down and the man it will lead you to become.
- Make a convicted decision: “I am done with this addiction, it will no longer rob me my opportunity choose my future in life.”
Just some thoughts I wanted to share with you on addiction this morning. I hope they help some of you out.
Talk to you soon.
