    This thing has become so ingrained into my daily habits that I find myself wanting to go browsing porn as if it were any of my other old compulsions (ie I suddenly want to play such and such game for no real reason. Countless hours later...) I don't feel any urges or sexual desires right now yet I could so easily go to one of my usual sites "just because."

    I don't know if I really have a question here, I think I just needed to get it off my chest.
     
  2. I know what you mean. It becomes a habit, like checking your e-mails.

    Change you'r routines and habits. I had urge to seek porn late at night so I changed know I go to bed . I had habit to watch internet in early morning on phone but then I relapsed .
    Think about the time you had habits to watch porn and change it into something more productive.

    Ditto. Even when I'm not aroused, I'm just like "Well, I'll check out a few images while I'm here" and bam - there goes a relapse. For me, I relapse when I'm just dinking around on the internet at home after work, so I'm trying to get into the habit of doing stuff other than computer things after work. It's all about replacing old habits with.....anything really. There are days I've left the house with nowhere to go just go get out of the house and away from my computer.

    you just have to make it a habit to NOT look, when usually you would.

    What does a urge mean to you?
    Many would described it as "feeling compelled" to do someting

    I usually experience this too. This is when it has becoming a habit to the extent that you do it not because you crave porn but it a daily routine you naturally go to.
    It should be easy to skip this type of attack with a movie or a video game or going out to talk with someone

    You can't feed the beast. Don't look.
    Anyone who is "just looking" & claims they do not feel tempted is on the front porch of Relapse House and is about to push the doorbell.
