2. Create a written list of specific behaviours you are uncomfortable with. List those things you do online that may be out of control. If you are logging on to an adult website, speding too much time in chat rooms, engaging in cybersex, or having a real time affair with someone you met online, identify which would you like to change

3. Develop a daily behaviour list. Pick some specific behavior you will do differently every day even it it represents a small change. You want to begin to create a momentum to change so it can spread to other behaviors and eventually to your whole pattern. Do not give up. Stay with it.
