    k9 blocker is gone, so you can't even use that, but it always sucked monkey balls, even a kid could disable that. I tried using this DNS blocker cleanbrowsing and it didn't do shit, it hasn't blocked anything, they give millions of excuses as to why it may not work. I can't figure out why is not blocking. Probably my IPS is rejecting it, so I'm fucked

    Its been fucking years since I searched for porn blocking technology, probably 2014 and it seems nothing has changed is all crap and nothing that can really help us, how can that be possible in this day and age and it seems the only real solution is to simply fucking destroy all technological devices

    throw away your computer, laptop, go back to a non-smartphone etc

    that's the only real solution, is like going to REHAB for years, if you need computer use, go to the library, not only they already have blockers of their own, but you won't bother or even try with so many people around, I know I wouldn't, simple as that

    fact of life is the fucking computer which started this addiction to 99% of us, sure, smartphones became handy and helped, but with smartphones and their stupid redirection on mobile browsing is a hassle to watch porn and majority just prefer to use a computer, easier access, no stupid redirections, bigger screens, faster scrolling, and clicking, download videos, build a porn collection, etc

    IS THE COMPUTER

    plain and simple, sell your computer and don't use one again.

    people say it should all be mental strength, I say bullshit that's like saying to a heroin addict to just quit with inner strength when he is living with buddies who inject and is surrounded by drug dealer all over the place

    big porn companies sue porn blocking companies, or companies try to make easier access for porn by paying vpn services for easier access. Willpower is the only thing we got.

    I use this one: https://getcoldturkey.com/

    But it's also super easy to disable. It just puts one extra step between you and P and gives you the opportunity to think for a few seconds. It's better than nothing, because having P one mouse click away is a recipe for disaster. This way, at least, there's a bit of a barrier.

    No blocker would work if you don't truly want to do nofap. You will always find a way to look at porn if you're not truly dedicated.

  7. Hey dude, I hate to break it to you, but you've gotta just stop looking up porn. The blockers aren't some magic pill you can take to make everything better. It's all on you.

    Also, you're definitely right about the whole internet addiction thing. Try this out: reddit.com/r/nosurf

    I actually started to develop my own porn blocker, the thing worked basically like a sniffer/virus but I realized that there is no content blocker in the world that would prevent me from using porn if I was determined. My longest streaks were without using content blocker.

    there was a way before to make things a bit harder with hosts file and using a limited account on windows, but because of a newly introduced feature in some browsers, it’s useless.

    it still baffles me that there is no way to block all adult websites. I know that in some country like Korea they ask for a security number to verify your age. but we need an international way.

    It would be nice to make a virus and spread it on porn and pirat games torrents, that blocking porn websites. There was similar virus, that was blocking only microsoft site and there was no antivirus software, that was able to detect it. Only tool to remove. I got it somehow ~6 years ago.
     
  12. Hey man, check out Covenant Eyes. I downloaded it yesterday and it comes with several features with one being a content blocker. The software is mainly a way for you to better connect with an ally of your choosing and accountability. But their content blocker is legit... I've downloaded several porn blockers in the past and this one is by far the best. It also has a "guardian" mode where you can have someone else manage your blocked settings. So, if you really wanted to watch porn you would need to go through a significant amount of time and steps. Now the downside, you need to pay a monthly subscription for the software( which is around $15 USD). Its expensive I know but you get what you pay for imo.
     
  13. detachment doesn't mean you own nothing it means nothing owns you. Don't count on external things. You must fight the battle in your own mind.

    Until like a year ago, I used to think I needed blockers to quit porn too. My laptop and smartphone felt like prisons with all the passwords, blockers and locks. I relied heavily on the software to not look at porn, but I quickly realized it would not work that way. I tried basically every single blocking software there is (paid & free software) and came to realize they all suck pretty bad. There was not a single service, that worked properly. They all were easily bypassed or struggled heavily with over-/underblocking.

    As a consequence, I decided to stop using blockers completely. The only "blocker" I have now is my own mind. People, who argue in favor of blockers, usually say you need blockers in moments of weakness because "willpower is not enough" and they do have a point there. I also don't think willpower is enough. You will not avoid porn just by saying to yourself "I don't look at porn". However, I don't think blockers are the answer. A change of your daily routine, a change of your lifestyle, a change of your personality is. I believe, unless you are willing to make sacrifizes and change aspects of your life, which don't do you any good, you will not solve this addiction problem.

    You see, I asked myself after every single relapse "Was this preventable?" and the answer was always "Yes, absolutely". If I had only done one small thing differently that day, I would have been able to avoid a relapse. Those changes are the key to recovery in my eyes. As far as I see it, we can not expect to recover while we do everything like we used to do it our entire life. Relying on blockers won't make these necesarry changes for you.

  15. If you are watching on android you can use SPIN browser.It disables everything sexual.I am currently using it myself and can guarantee it works.Also if you use reddit you should delete it because it can't block it on reddit and there is a lot porn on there.Relapsed a lot of times because of reddit porn.As for pc you can disable the incognito mode and also block the sites in the host files(google it ) you have to do it manualy but it is the most efficient way to block porn on pc .I hope this help and good luck
     
  16. Also I agree that you shouldn't use them because the point of this is to develop enough discipline so you will be able to resist urges.But it can help especially in the first 2 days when the urges are high. As for me I have set certain milestones .When i reach a certain milestone I'll remove the blocker
