Filters Don't Do Everything

Just because you have an Internet filter on your computer doesn't mean that you'll never see Internet porn again. It gives you a fighting chance by minimizing the likelyhood that you'll stumble across pornography while doing your everyday (read: wholesome) online activities. The problem is when you want to explore the more shadowy corners of the Internet. If you're trying to find porn and you're reasonably clever, you'll probably find it. So my recommendation is that you find an accountability partner. An accountability partner gets a report of your online activities everyday or by some other trigger. The tool I use, NetMop, is a hack-proof filter that has an accountability tool buit in. You can give a special username and password to your accountability partner and they can view your online activity to keep you on the straight and narrow. You can also enter the email address of your accountability partner and when you visit a blocked site, or have an image load from a blocked site, your accountability partner gets an email notifying them that you've accessed a blocked site. Your accountability partner can check your activity to see if it was an innocent mistake or if your were cruising the shadowy site of the Net.

To involve somebody else in your sexual addiction everyday control may lead to so called "codependence" issue for this other person. This is addiction as well. Search Amazon for this book: "The Sex Addiction Workbook: Proven Strategies to Help You Regain Control of Your Life" by Sbraga. I started to use it recently. It helps me.
