Secret Life Weapon

Whatever you resist, persists -because it keeps your attention. You can't keep saying "I'm not going to lust" because all you remain thinking about is lust.

Instead REFOCUS on something else to defeat a temptation. Fully put your mind on a completely unrelated topic. Linger in a new thought field.

I find that worship music really helps, as does reciting key scriptures.

Read through a favourite passage of scripture.

Change your physical location.

Do something active.

Alerting a trusted friend that you are in a mental lockdown can really help too.

We need each other.

Stay Alert and Don't Give Up!

It's important to take your temptations seriously as well. All to often we overestimate our own mental ability and try to defeat our vices on our own. Don't hesitate to call your accountability partners. It could be the difference between success and failure.
