How can i stop watching porn

Where am I?

In Covenant Eyes you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Hello Samjuniour. 

Thank you for your fantastic question. Its a very worthwhile question, with a complex answer. Everyone's journey toward a porn free life is going to look different. There isn't a "one size fits all" solution. I wish there were. That being said, we have found great success in the combined approach of filtering and accountability. A good filter can remove access to a lot of the worst junk online and Covenant Eyes does indeed offer a strong filter as a service option. That being said, the real focus of our software lies in accountability. 

We have found that temptation flourishes in isolation and withers in the light of accountability. If you know that whatever you see on your screen someone else will also see, it tends to destroy or at least greatly reduce that impulse to view and use pornography. Have you spoken to anyone about your struggles? A close friend or family member or a counselor? Doing so can be very stressful at first but I do certainly recommend it. 

If you are interested in seriously stopping pornography usage then I would recommend talking to someone that you trust as well as utilizing filtering and accountability software - whether our own or that of another company - so long as you have and use that protection. In case you are interested in using Covenant Eyes I will include a link to account creation here5

Additionally I will provide a link to an article that explains in part why pornography is so addictive and difficult to overcome on our own. You can find that article here12

If you have any other questions or if there is anything else we can do for you Samjuniour please let us know. 

Thank you and have a great day.
