We here at the Healing Info. Ministries, hear from many about the struggles they face with the temptation to engage in un-healthy behaviors or actions. We totally understand. It's completely normal and every human being faces them. We've learned that during the peak or intense times of a temptation, it's hard to even think straight, about how to find help or a way out.

We've discovered that the 'surf the urge' tool (a term coined by Dr. Alan Marlatt) can be very helpful. We've listed an audio link below from Dr. Sarah Bowen from Pacific University - Oregon, that can be used during these often difficult and challenging times. It works.
