Okay, I suspect that some of you will dismiss this article just from reading the title. Meditation? Really? How is Meditation going to help me with quitting porn and rewiring my brain for real sex?
Glad you asked.
New research shows that regular meditation practice helps people quit smoking, lose weight, kick a drug habit, and stay sober.
-Kelly McGonigal, The Willpower Instinct
Meditation is a very powerful tool you can use to train your brain and increase your willpower (willpower that you can use to resist the temptation of porn). It lowers stress levels, teaches you how to handle negative inner dialogue (anxiety, worry, cravings), and deal with external temptations (images, sounds, smells).
