The Problem

The RAMP Solution to pornography addiction focuses on teaching you how the game is being played in your mind. The game is this: you have an overactive Limbic System. This over active Limbic System thinks that most negative emotions or states of mind are actually threats to survival. It thinks that the feeling of boredom is a threat to survival or feeling tired is a threat to survival. This is why it is called “overactive” because it is over reacting to common negative emotions. (Read:  Triggers and the Acronym TROUBLED) To survive it believes it must release brain chemicals into the brain. To get those brain chemicals it seeks out stimulation. In the case of porn addiction, that stimulant is porn and masturbation. Watching porn and masturbating allows the Limbic System to flush the brain with chemicals and gives it a temporary release. The Limbic System believes it is giving the brain a chance for “survival.”Of course this is not the case, the Limbic System is actually causing more stress on the brain and it is not solving any of the negative emotions that it is trying to cure.

The truth to the addiction and the game that is being played is to show you that you are not addicted to porn but rather the brain chemicals it causes. Brain chemicals are the problem and are at the center of your addiction. Learn how to control the Limbic System and let it heal itself and you will cure your addiction!

People who don’t know how the game is being played will focus on not watching porn. That is like a basketball team focusing on dribbling and never practices shooting the ball, or a golf player focusing on walking around a golf course and never practices swinging a club. You know this limited technique of practicing will never bring success. So it is with porn addiction, focusing on not watching porn will always bring failure. That is why most of you reading this will have failed countless number of times. It is because you focused on not watching porn instead of focusing on healing the mind which is the source of the addiction.  (Read: How to Talk to Your Mind)

The Solution

The solution includes understanding and documenting triggers. What are triggers? Briefly triggers are made up of two parts.

Part 1: One part is a reminder of the addiction. This can be anything from an attractive girl at school or a billboard along the side of the road that is using sexually suggestive marketing. We are often forced in our modern world to view suggestive material. Avoiding suggestive material is not the point of the RAMP solution, the point is to be able to recognize when a trigger happens. So when you see something that excites you sexually instantly you should start evaluating if you are having a trigger. The RAMP Solution teaches you to recognize the moment a trigger happens. Time is of the essence. Limiting the amount of time the Limbic System can use to pump chemicals will limit the amount of chemicals in the brain and give you a better chance of avoiding a slip. (Read:  Triggers and the Acronym TROUBLED)

Part 2: The trigger needs you to be in a compromised state of mind. This means feeling TROUBLED. When you are emotionally compromised you will find that your Limbic System is easily triggered. Like part 1, part 2 is often out of your control. At some point in the day or week we will be in a TROUBLED state. That is just part of life. The point is not to avoid feeling negative feelings but to be able to recognize which feelings we are feeling. And then to have a Modifying Behavior that we have in place to satisfy the negative feeling. (Read: Clint Eastwood Versus Richard Simmons)

It is also highly recommended that you keep a journal. The journal can be used to document times of day when triggers happen. It can tell you what types of emotions give you more problems than others. It can help you see patterns that often form with triggers. Identifying these patterns will help you be able to dissect triggers so that you can defeat them.

Also, a journal will help you realize the effects of the program. Often the healing of the mind is subtle and unnoticeable. Working out the mind is often like a muscle. It will little by little get stronger. Often it is hard to document the day to day changes. It is easier to notice changes over months. However, with muscles there is a visual change which is not perceivable with brain changes. The brain will actually change shape as you heal. But because it is surrounded by your skull you will never see the folds of your brain change shape. However, there is a very real physical healing that will happen with your brain as you heal. Keeping a journal will help you realize and document these often unperceivable changes. (Read: Keep a Journal)

During a trigger you will feel the desire to have a slip. In the beginning it is ok to have slips. Addictions take time and slips are inevitable. Just like falling on a bicycle is inevitable when learning how to ride a bike (Read: Why Signing Contracts or Promises Are Counterproductive).

While slips are natural in the learning process, eventually you need to train your mind to eventually not go through with slips. In the RAMP Solution, your last defense against a trigger is to complete the RAMP process. ONCE YOU START THE RAMP PROCESS IT MUST BE FOLLOWED ALL THE WAY THROUGH! Do not let a slip during the process stop you from completing the RAMP process. This is very tempting to do as your mind will be put in a false sense of security because of the brain chemicals released during the slip. So in the beginning it is okay to have a slip while completing the RAMP process. However, it is not okay to stop the RAMP process until it has been completed all the way through. All the way to Self Praise.

RAMP is an acronym that stands for Recognize, Actions, Modify and Praise. In the program you will learn how to:

  • RECOGNIZE. Learn how to recognize the moment a trigger happens. You will also learn how to dissect a trigger which will allow you to better defeat future triggers.
  • ACTIONS. What physical actions to take to help you resist the trigger and the brain chemicals they cause.
  • MODIFY. You will learn how Modifying Activities can calm the Limbic System. Learn how to tailor Modifying Activities to different types of triggers.
