There are a lot of "resources" on the Internet (actually just the things that rise to the top of search engines) that seemingly want to diminish the role of willpower in addict recovery. I want to throw out the following: * Your attitude towards the role of willpower and addiction is based on your life philosophy, political ideology and religious beliefs: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/jen-simon/addiction-poverty-and-the_b_4731613.html * The addiction support cottage industry, and its political lobbyists, want us to believe that willpower is not enough, so we buy their products and services * Willpower is not enough; you have to combine several actions, along with willpower, to beat addiction. To know which actions to take, one has to gain knowledge of the best means available. NoFap.org plays a role with helping us gain knowledge or our condition. * Crutches, like Internet porn blockers, are meant to be broken because they are man-made means. Our man-made addict minds will use these crutches to plant seeds in our minds that we cannot do this without them. Those seeds will sprout one day, and come back to haunt us. Alright, what's everyone's thoughts?
