“What type of fire is in you? It makes the difference whether or not you overcome pornography.”–Richard Arthur    

This Post is the First Part of a Three Part Series on The Fire Technique.

PART ONE: The Cold Fire Principle

When something turns you on and all you can think about is sex; How do you block the trigger to view porn?

Use Cold Fire

What does that mean?

Cold Fire is limiting emotions. Here’s how you use cold fire.

When you lose enthusiasm for life, some limiting emotion snuffed out your internal flame, making you vulnerable to porn. 

How do you protect your enthusiasm?

Use Fire to Fight Fire; Use Cold Fire as a Firewall to block a porn trigger.

The Cold Fire Principle is the self-awareness of the effects of the evil of pornography. Porn snuffs out your enthusiasm for life. This is evil.

Suggestion: Do these exercises immediately or during devotional times.

Goal: Commit to being a good man or woman. Commit to being excited about life.

Action: Write your Firewall Statement to block triggers to view porn.                      

Example of a Firewall Statement: The White Hot Fire of Lust causes the Hurtful Fire of Self-hatred, igniting the Cold Fire of intense Depression. Confess, “I must stay clean!”

Your Firewall Statement: The White Hot Fire of ­­­­_____________ causes the Hurtful Fire of ____________ (all that apply), igniting the Cold Fire of intense ____________ (all that apply). Confess (audibly), “I must stay clean!”

White Hot Fires: Pick One                                                                                                

Envy, Greed, Lust,  Sloth, Gluttony,  Hate, Pride or Stubbornness.               

Hurtful Fires of … (Choose one):

Adultery, Fornication, Reveling, Vanity, Backbiting, Gossip, Scorn, Variance, Confusion, Hatred, Violence, Deceitfulness, Idolatry, Self-hatred, Witchcraft, Drunkenness, Lasciviousness, Spite, Wrath, Envy, Strife or Rage.                        

Cold Fire of intense limiting emotion (Choose one):

Anguish, Dishonor, Guilt, Oppression, Depression, Distrust,  Hopelessness, Rottenness, Despair, Dread, Humiliation,            Shame, Despondency, Fear, Inferiority, Sorrow, Devastation, Grief, Loneliness or Vexation.

Block porn triggers: Write a Firewall Statement, Now, on a 3×5 card. Carry it with you throughout the day.

When an urge (sexual stimulation, arousal) comes to you to view porn, Read your Firewall Statement. Take a couple of minutes to feel the pain that will result from viewing porn. Focus on the pain until sexual arousal fades and the desire to view porn leaves you. Say, “I am free!” Then, immediately do something to get your mind off of porn.

Part One and Part Two have somewhat of a negative tone to them. However, the experts say that the greatest motivation for change is Pain. So, I start with the most painful parts of the Three Part Series.

I promise you that Part Three is powerfully uplifting.

Keep on the lookout for Part Two: The Furnace Principle:  How to Use the Furnace heat to stop porn cravings.

To Your Peace,

Dale

On to … Pornography Addiction Recovery…

Published by: curepornaddiction

In the year 1971 I became a store manager at age 19. I discovered I had a gift for mentoring. I gave one on one coaching, instruction and teaching with ease. And, I loved it. However, I had a problem that held me back from achieving my full potential. I was addicted to porn. When I was going through my puberty years in life, I found pornography (adult magazines) in my Dad's closet. I was hooked. I had my ups and downs throughout my life: Ups, when I was off of porn and using my gift: and, Downs, when I was using porn. Porn captured my attention, holding me back. I found the secrets to breaking free from porn. Like anyone else, I have to work at keeping my emotions positive, every day, to stay free. Limiting emotions--fear, doubt, hate, lust, sloth, pride, any emotion that kills joy. Joy is the ultimate weapon against porn. You have it; porn loses its hold on you. I dedicate this blog to those who are looking for ways to end pornography in their life. To Your Peace, Power and Plenty, Dale P.S. The picture above is not me. The photo represents all families free from pornography.
