    Just so you know, I have personally found it very difficult to build blocks or squares after using CFOP for so long. Using white cross also made it very difficult for me to adapt to other methods. For Petrus method, when building blocks, I always tend to make pairs and insert them because I'm so used to that. This is why I gave up on learning methods other than CFOP. CFOP is one of those "brain dead", "stupid" methods. It's too easy, that's why it's difficult to adapt to different methods after using CFOP for so long.
    Don't worry though, since you have only been using CFOP for about a month, it shouldn't be that bad. But I would recommend learning at least one of the methods that Kirjava listed so you can get used to block building also. Try also building blocks on different colors, not just on white (or whatever color cross you use now).

    Pretty much anything that isn't Fridrich/CFOP is intuitive :p. Most people say Heise is on of the most hardest and intuitive method to learn. Go check it out yourself :)

    Learn how to use commutators and then solve only using those.

    Commutators can only reach half the cubegroup.

    Roux, petrus, my method I created to teach people (build F2L like Petrus, solve LL in 3 steps (COLL [comms] [is it OCLL?], EPLL, CPLL [comms])

    This

    but some more details:
    solve stuff up to XXX cross
    use the open slot to orient and permute edges
    solve the remaining corners via commutators

    Check out Heise's pages on the last steps of his method to help you after the XXX cross

    Go BLD. Commutator is intuitive and fun, as Zane says.

    Heise method is also good, which does not require any algorithms.

    Another interesting method is 8355 method, which requires only the sexy move.
