When sex addicts change their thoughts, they change their lives.
With the three-second rule, recovering sex addicts, upon recognizing a sexually addictive thought or fantasy, should give themselves three seconds to turn away from it and focus on something else. This, of course, is sometimes easier said than done. One useful trick utilized by many recovering sex addicts is “turning it over” to their Higher Power, asking for the thought to be removed. This works even for those who struggle with the concept of God/Higher Power. The simple act of doing something (anything at all) to get rid of the unwanted thought usually does the trick.
Just for Today:
Include your Higher Power in your sobriety, especially in regard to the three-second rule.
