    Jesus fasted and prayed “Before” temptation. Jesus instantly quoted scripture regarding the temptation to satan when He was tempted.

    Before temptation, it is wise to have a couple of scriptures from (Google search “Verses drinking/drugs”) memorized.

    Consider fasting from food and memorizing a couple of verses, or fasting from TV, or from your computer.

    When tempted “instantly” quote quitting verses. In Jesus temptation in Matthew 4, He did not consider His options for even 1 second, He instantly quoted specific Bible verses that fought off the temptation.

    Key point: Put in the work, prayer, and memorization “Before” the temptation happens.

    Secondly, satan tempts us with what we want. Psalm 1 says “Blessed is the man whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law does he meditate day and night.” #1 Consider setting a goal to be blessed. #2 Meditate often on the verses that will set you free (Which will also start you toward blessings). #3 Remember, satan tempts us with what we want. How can he continue tempting you if blessings are what you want? If he tries to continue, he will be fighting God’s very Word, and His promises. Satan is smart, he will bother you less, and find easier victims. Consider praying often:

    “Lord, help me to use Your technique for fighting off temptation.”
