6 ways to stop cheating

Cheating is a choice but so is drug abuse.

Cheating is a choice.

Are you a serial cheater? Here are 6 things you can do to stop yourself from cheating.

Cut off people.

The first step to stop cheating is cutting out any one who is expects an emotional responsibility from you other than your partner. Out of sight, out of mind. This will help put you in a position to really consider your actions and open your eyes to reality.

Spend more time with your partner.

Instead of taking the other person out, ask your partner to go with you. Be a leech, well, don’t suck the life out of your partner but stick their side like glue. Spending more time together will remind you what was so great about your partner in the first place and will make you tighter in the long run.

Talk to someone about it.

Find yourself someone who you can talk to without feeling embarrassed about your situation. Preferably, an older person who has been in a long lasting relationship. They will help you keep on track.

Accept that it was your mistake.

Blaming his or her shortcomings for your cheating is a lousy way to get over your feeling of guilt. You might not get that lucky with being faithful. Accepting that it was your own short coming even if your partner hasn’t found out is the big step towards changing.

Get busy with other things.

An idle mind is the devil’s workshop. The problem with cheating is that it makes you suspicious of your partner. Having a lot of time in your hands especially if your partner is busy may make you want to look for companionship from someone else.

Make rules about associating with the opposite sex.

What’s the latest you chat with people? How do you greet the opposite sex? Are you too friendly with people? These are a few pointers that will help you set clear boundaries with the opposite sex. It’s okay to look like a snob at times.
