Why Website Blockers Won’t Stop Your Porn Addiction – Part 2

Following on from Part 1 explaining why website blockers won’t stop your porn addiction, here are some practicalities you should also consider:

Website Blockers Aren’t 100% Effective at Stopping Porn Access

This won’t surprise you: there is an absolute shitload of porn on the internet.

Website blockers are awesome at stopping access to all the obviously pornographic sites, but they’re not so hot at stopping access to porn in the less blatant places.

Spoiler alert: you know tumblr.com? One of the most popular websites in the entire world? By default, it’s not blocked by porn filters . . . yet it’s full of porn.

Same with popular video sites like dailymotion.com, metacafe.com or break.com. Shit, as strict as YouTube is, you can even find some porn there if you know how.

When you’re tempted, it really doesn’t matter if you can’t access 99.9% of porn on the web. If you can even find just one page with porn on it, that’s all you need for a damaging relapse.

Website Blockers Aren’t 100% Bulletproof

Although website blockers can be super difficult to bypass, they’re still not indestructible. There are entire websites dedicated to helping you get around internet filters, and some of their stuff actually works.

If you’re addicted to porn and you’re feeling that gripping urge to use it, it’s amazing the lengths you’ll go to just to get some. Including doing whatever you can to bypass your website blocker.

Website Blockers Only Work on the Devices They’re Installed On

Let’s say website blockers do stop you from watching any porn on your computer and smart phone. High fives!

But wait . . . what will happen in future when you next get access to a device with no website blocker?

If you haven’t done anything to address your porn addiction at its core, you’re now all set for a huge binge to make up for all that porn you’ve been missing out on.

So, what are the chances you’ll never have access to a device without a porn blocker ever again?

Website Blockers Only Work on Internet Porn

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away . . . .

There was no internet. And in those days, folks got their porn fix using archaic objects like magazines and videos.

Well, guess what? Those things still exist! And not just in museums either.

So do memory sticks and hard drives full of porn that someone else downloaded off the internet.

And so does mental visualisation of nasty porn scenes, which can feed your porn addiction just as much as watching porn itself.

So if you happen to get hold of porn from anywhere besides directly from the internet, your website blocker ain’t got a thing to say about it.

Kinda leaves the back door wide open huh?

Conclusion

As you might know about me by now, I don’t tiptoe around, and I don’t do things by halves. So I know I’ve really hammered the point in this article.

But I’ve done that because it’s such a common misconception that website blockers are the key to overcoming porn addiction.

I used to believe that myself, and I learned the hard way that they’re not. Now my job is to point you in the right direction as soon as possible so you don’t waste any time.

Yes: porn website blockers are useful as one strategy in an overall plan for overcoming porn addiction.

No: porn website blockers won’t stop the porn addiction itself. They’ll just make it harder for you to act on it.

Meanwhile, if you do nothing to address your porn addiction, it will just keep bubbling away under the surface, ready to erupt as soon as you have access to porn again.

On the other hand, with the right personal changes to your psychology, mental and emotional state, behaviours and your life as a whole, you can crush porn addiction for good. That’s exactly what Porn Free Power is here to help you with.

My advice: take full responsibility for your porn addiction and commit to doing whatever it takes to smash it at its core. Use a porn blocker as a tool to support you during your recovery, then get to work on yourself so you don’t even need it any more.

From the Fans
"Jay,

Thank you for creating your website and your resources. I have known for quite some time that I was missing something in my approach to quitting porn; I knew that will-power wasn't cutting it and that something in my thinking and outlook on life had to change, but I just didn't know how to get there.

I'm only a few articles into the series, yet I can tell there is something different about this time, because I realize that it's not merely about resisting my urges, but really changing the way I think about myself, my past, and my future. Makes complete sense.

I really like how you designed your resources as a series to be periodically delivered via email. It gives me something to look forward to and is helping me take this on---one day at a time. Thank you, man.

Porn has taken me to some dark and shame-filled places. I was afraid that I would never be able to stop the repetitive and damaging cycle. Your writing has helped me to feel hope again, and for that I am overwhelmingly thankful. You are really helping me, Jay, and I hope your approach to fighting this addiction is helping countless others as well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you:)"

"Hi Jay,

Thx. for all your help,and please continue to forward your emails and materials to me.

I have found that 'Inner Anchor','Inner Source of Power' that you indicated would be essential to victory over porn.This has given me a porn-free identity,giving NO PLACE to porn in my life at all.I am continually aware that I may NEVER become complacent.

I thought I want to let you know,but have waited a considerable time so as to absolutely, resolutely sure that porn is totally out of my life and this email confirms it for me!!!"

"Dear Jay

Thank you for your loving, supportive and non judgmental guidance through this hard time. Your regular exercises are a great help in breaking the bonds of this addiction and your weekly check ups are a reminder that I'm not alone in this battle.

After almost 20 years of fighting this addiction on my own, you have given me the tools to break it's chains. I was so close to losing my wife and family but now we are closer than we had ever hoped to be.

All that ugly guilt and shame has been washed away and in its place a sense of humility, forgiveness and lots of love.

I pray for God's continued strength for you as you continue in your mission.

Thank you"

"For me, porn was a web of deceit I was ensnared in. I couldn't get free. As I've started doing the Action Series Porn Free Power offers, the different threads that had attached to my life long ago have begun to fall away. It's so effective and simple.

You have no idea how much power you possess until you meet Jay and the amazing support he offers, its life changing. Thanks so much Jay and PFP!"

I have not looked at porn in several weeks, i'm proud of myself and would like to thank you for your advice it's helped alot."
