Absolutely incredible article! This needs to be required reading in every jr. high — college. I am an active LDS member and quite like Tad Callister, but I definitely agree that the only way to overcome pornography is to eventually quit focusing so much on shame and start being aware of why you are feeling compulsed in certain situations. They talk about it in terms of “triggers”, but I still feel your ideas about self soothing are even deeper and more empowering. I have tried to articulate the strategies I came up with to overcome my compulsions with this crap years ago. This was a perfect description of what I finally came to. I shared this with my wife and she loved it. Amazing work!
