I found that one of the most effective ways to avoid the addiction is to use visualization/imagination. Two visualizations that I've had success with (well limited success, as I did eventually blow it) are the following:
The first is to imagine ejaculation as a draining, a removal of my more energetic spirit. I imagine it as if my heart and soul would be violently ripped out through my urethra, and I'd be left there an empty, tired, miserable husk. When I look at it like that, I almost become sick at the thought of ejaculating.
My second visualization is used during the tremor part of my withdrawal symptoms. Instead of seeing the tremors as some part of my mind telling me "must have relief, must have relief," I visualize it as if lightning is crackling around me like Raiden from Mortal Kombat. It's my newer better spirit forming in my body and I am becoming accustomed to this new awesome power. Of course I'm going to shake and tremor as I learn to control this vast, precious, and now unfamiliar energy! It's kind of like being Tal Rasha in Diablo II, except instead of containing Baal's spirit I'm filled with divine energy (lol!!).
Anyone else use something like this?
