Suggestions of what those that have walked this road before did for cleaning house, are as follows:
- Get rid of the pornography, the sex paraphernalia and the phone numbers of those you act out with.
- Get caller ID, and put a block on your Internet connection.
- Cancel your subscriptions to suspect magazines and your memberships to clubs or chat lines where you have acted out.
- Throw out your acting-out clothes and costumes.
- Cut off your contact with your acting-out partners – don’t worry about hurting their feelings, just tell them you won’t be dealing with them in the future but don’t get into a discussion about it.
- Don’t drive unsafe routes or go past the houses of your former acting-out-partners.
Not all of these suggestions may apply to you – but you get the idea. If you put your mind to it, you will know what you need to do to clean house.
