5 More Books To Help You Quit Porn And Make You A Better Man

Man-Reading

A while back I wrote a post called 5 Books That Will Supercharge Your Reboot and Make You a Better Man, which received a ton of great feedback.

Many of you read the books and reported some real, positive changes:

“Understanding the habit loop really helped me to remove destructive routines from my life.”  –John

“I created my own Miracle Morning routine and I find I have so much more energy to fight my porn addiction.” – Anonymous

So I thought I’d add to the list MORE books that helped me get where I am today – completely recovered from porn-induced ED and performance anxiety.

 

“Reboot” Your Life

Is it really just porn that you’re struggling with?

For many of us, porn addiction is just a symptom of a deeper existential crisis. A lack of CONTROL in our lives.

A different way to look at this challenge is not just about overcoming your porn addiction, but as an OPPORTUNITY to make big, lasting changes in your life.

Getting fit, finding new hobbies, becoming more social, finding a lifelong partner…  These are some of the great things that can happen – IF you get serious and work on improving yourself.

The books listed below are the best place I know to start.

 

1. The Brain that Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brian Science

This revolutionary book helped overthrow the centuries-old idea that the human brain was static and not malleable.

Norman Doidge, M.D., gives us both the interesting back-story of the scientists researching neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change and adapt to new situations), as well as inspiring case studies of people whose lives have been completely turned around.

Dr. Doidge also looks specifically at what happens in the brain with porn addiction and gives insights into how we can overcome it.

This book will change the way you look at your brain, and most importantly, will take away that old excuse: “but that’s just the way I am, I can’t change.”  The reality is we can, and this book is part of a roadmap for that change.

2.  Personal Power II

Tony-Robbins-Personal-Power-2-1

This is one of the most motivating and inspiring books I’ve ever come across (though it’s an audiobook).

If you’re looking for a manual on how to live an exceptional life, look no further. Tony nailed it. This is the P90x of mental conditioning.

If you can afford it, get the audio program, which is 25 CDs. The music is cheesy and feels very 80s, but the content is TIMELESS.

I’ve gone through the complete program from start to finish three times over the last 10 years, and listen to my favorites tapes when I’m feeling in a rut.

3. Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow: From Habit to Harmony in Sexual Relationships by Marnia Robinson

Why do relationships become stale sexually?

How can we create loving, sexual relationships that last longer than the initial passion?

Why is it that even with more education about sex and how to give our partners orgasms, the divorce rate is still high?

This book skillfully blends scientific studies on the neuroscience and evolutionary biology of sex, with spirituality and cultural history, to give you practical advice for creating long-lasting, loving relationships.

Reading it just might change the way you look at relationships, sex and healing in your life.

4. The NOW Habit by Dr. Neil Fiore

This is a great book that changed the way I looked at procrastination. Dr. Neil Fiore has created a program to beat procrastination by systematically changing our relationship to work and play.

By scheduling our free time, we are able to de-stress and actually enjoy our “play” time, rather than get more stressed about what we’re not getting done.

This is a great read for those trying to overcome stress and anxiety caused by work.  Stress and anxiety which, like it or not, can play a part in how you perform in the bedroom.

5. Your Brain On Porn by Gary Wilson

If you’re struggling with porn addiction or porn-induced ED, this is a book you need to read.

Gary Wilson, creator of the website Your Brain On Porn released an e-book which covers the science of your brain’s reward circuits and how to take back control of our habits.

Knowing the science behind what happens in your brain during addiction is an important step that many guys ignore.

The profits from the sale of this book go towards research about porn addiction.

 

Time for BIG changes

I know you’re sick of spending hours a day in front of a computer screen, wasting hours upon hours of your life to watching porn.

If you’re fed up and ready to make changes, today is the best day to start.
