[QUOTE What else do you guys find helpful to counter avoidance? Of work & real life.[/QUOTE] I'm cautious of any "tricks" or shortcuts or stuff like that. "The Porn Myth" ends with a whole bunch of practical steps, and one that I've been practicing is saying out loud what I want to do, or why I don't want to indulge, what it will feel like once this quick high is over, etc. The author says this reinforces decisions from the part of the brain that manages impulse control and decision making. It's definitely helping. And when my wife ticked off a few things she'd like me to get at the grocery store, I verbally said them back to her, totally unaware that I was practicing this step. It confirmed to me that it's helpful and not just a useless suggestion.
