"Don't Be That Man,"  is a very good book. Easy read, just the right length. I particularly liked the antidotal approach of secular treatment intertwined with the spiritual. This book is beneficial to anyone with a compulsive behavior, not just porn, regardless of whether they are an Atheist or a Christian. It's a  book that shows men how to use healthy thinking, willpower, faith and Godly principles to overcome porn and lust.

Book: http://dontbethatman.com/


All compulsive behavior or addictions serve an emotional purpose. This book,  "Don't Be That Man, " does not attempt to address the cause of porn addiction;  it does offer direct healthy thinking solutions. All addictive behaviors (porn, drugs, gambling, etc) are displaced behaviors that help the abuser regain control over helpless, trapped, powerless, circumstances that the abuser finds critically important. Regaining control  over helpless circumstances that promote direct healthy behaviors is what "Don't Be That Man, " is about. This book is about changing your thinking and changing your life.

All change ultimately occurs because of decisions (THINKING) people make for themselves. People change when they are HURT enough and HAVE to, or when the LEARN enough and WANT to.
People overcome addiction out of purpose-based motivation -- they quit when they recognize how their habit violates WHO they were, WHAT they want to be, WHERE they want to go in life.
A person's purpose and values are the main navigational tools in recovery from any hurt, habit or hang-up.
The Bible is not the only place to find purpose and values,  but If we get our purpose and values from the Bible (the best source), direct healthy behavior is inevitable.

I'm so glad you liked the book! Thanks so much for the great review! I would be forever thankful if you could share that on Amazon too!

I'm tossing around the idea of making an accompanying Bible study but I'm not sure yet what direction to take it. I'd also like to record the audio book version too.

Thanks again and God bless!!

Quick Navigation:

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.

-----------------------------------------------------------

With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

------------------------------------------------------------

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
