New weapon against porn

Sentry.DNSThe internet, as it is today, is literally flooded with hardcore porn. It's always available, just a click away. We don't have to opt-in, agree to have it sent to us, or provide proof of age. It's there, all the time, in every home and on every device. Sadly, there is no easy way to opt-out at this time. I'm hoping for some sort of political action around this, and I do believe that will happen...eventually. But for now, all we have is the pornternet.

The importance of delaying gratification

delayed gratification sloganThe ability to delay gratification is a crucial life skill that we all develop to varying degress as we gain a mature perspective on the world. Young children completely lack this ability. Whatever they need or want, they believe they have to have it right now. As we grow up, we begin to learn how to be patient and wait for the things we want. We don't pee in our pants, we wait until we find a bathroom.

Internet filters are not for everyone

person falling off bike on slopeI was reading somewhere that some recovering porn addicts were finding it too difficult to use their computers and not look for porn, so they installed some software to block porn websites and filter out inappropriate search results. That got me thinking...maybe I should do that too.

My Story

happy coupleI am a porn addict. I'm a lot of other things too, but this is one thing I'm not proud of. Porn addiction can seem like a strange idea to some people because on the one hand, there isn't really much of a stigma attached to porn in the general sense; it's sort of accepted as normal that guys look at porn.
