    If it works for you, thats great. Unfortunately I need my smart phone near me for work. So I purchased an alarm clock (Google mini actually) to wake me up in the morning and now leave my smart phone in the other room charging. There have been too many nights staying awake just staring at my phone which eventually leads to porn. Now I got a book near my bed and I am hoping to change up this late night habit.

    I have a friend who did this and it really helped him. I've never used my phone for P or anything that would lead me down the wrong path, but I see the utility in getting rid of it as a temptation. I don't think you're crazy for doing this. Crazy is allowing the temptation to remain easily accessible. Do you have access to whatsapp or any of the other group messaging apps listed in this thread so you can join the team?

    I apologize man, I do not have access to whatsapp. But I can do texting, or email if that is okay with you.

    Sorry about that man.

    I've actually done something similar in putting a lock on my smartphone for all apps accessing media (internet browser, youtube app, etc.) and using a browser called "Spin browser" which filters all dangerous content.

    It works, to an extent. It won't rid your life of all episodes, but it sure helps when you're sitting on the can and you don't need to worry so much while scrolling through news on a safe browser.

    Great suggestion about the flip phone though. I really have thought about changing over. Still mulling it over.

    I’m in! Great idea for a group!

    Dan Pena the billion dollar man says “show me your friends and il show you your future”.

    Essentially you are who you associate with.

    Hey guys, 32 years old male, east coast graduate student and full time worker too. Discovered internet pornography about 15-20 years ago and trained myself to become addicted long before I realized what effects it would have on me. Been trying to stop for 2 and a half years, only to keep having lapses. Looking for a group to help me stay accountable. Thanks.

    Same exact thing happens to me, I have the alarm clock excuse too, so now I’ll follow your advice and buy a separate alarm clock and keep mobile phone charging in other room at night.
