Addictive behaviors are not rooted in some deep, dark, shadowy mental maze.  They’re based on pleasure highs — a hormone called epinephrine is secreted into the bloodstream, which locks into the memory whatever stimulus is present at the time of the emotional excitement.

 

Some men become emotionally and sexually stimulated just from entertaining thoughts of sexual activity. A guy dead set on purchasing Hustler at his local 7-Eleven is sexually stimulated long before he even steps into the convenience store. His stimulation began in his thought process, which triggered his nervous system, which secreted epinephrine into the bloodstream.

 

Today I will train my eyes and mind to behave. I will align my eyes and mind with Scripture in order to avoid every hint of sexual addiction.
