    BUT, I unfollowed anyone or anything that might be potentially triggering. I went so hardcore unfollowing people I think I’m only following 4 or 5 girls, none of which post promiscuous content on their feed. I’m going to use Instagram purely as a business tool, to only follow essential people and use it as a platform for further my music. Just wanted to get some takes on this, as not gonna lie, was a little nervous reinstalling it since I haven’t had it for several months.

    If you really need to make posts on Instagram, how about only being on your own page, never visiting anyone else's page?

    You’re very right, Instagram can be responsible for a lot of relapses and it’s a big hub of sexual stimulation, but the way I look at it is, it’s not about the app itself but rather the intention behind using the app. So if I steer clear of the explore page and anything else potentially triggering, in my mind I’ll be fine. And if I’m not, well it was a learning experience.

    Well yes I’m very much limiting time spent in general on Instagram, I’m not visiting the explore page or even scrolling down my own feed. I’m not voluntarily following anyone unless it has some sort of business/promotional benefit. I’m taking things VERY slow and being VERY careful, but I’ve developed enough discipline to have the confidence in myself that I won’t take things in the wrong direction.

    Describe exactly how instagram benefits you.
    Sounds to me like your making excuses.
    Setting yourself up for a fail.

    As long as you don't use it much and don't follow triggers you should be fine. I set up a blocker so I can only use it for 10-20 minutes a day.
