    Does anyone else unconsciously type P sites they were used to using when you open incognito mode for other reasons? I just did that and it's such a bad habit to have, specially if you're not concentrated or do it in front of other people.

    I find this hard to believe quite honestly. Why do you use incognito mode for other reasons? What reasons?

    I have never typed anything unconsciously on any device on any browser, even when concentration is poor.

    To go even further and suggest that typing in porn sites unintentionally is a "habit" seems utterly bizarre! o_O

    I used to do this until I realized that looking (peeking) for p will always mean you will relapse. It's a path to failure, and you will always end up at step 1.
     
  4. I know exactly. I dont go into incognito mode but when I was not thinking I would type the first couple letters to a porn site into the search bar and catch myself.

    I do not trust incognito mode. I can imagine the NSA dude being like "What are you looking for? Why don't you want me to know?" and then he checks your whole computer.

    Sounds like muscle memory - the same reason you can type in your password so fast. You've done it so much you can do it without thinking. It can be very useful (you probably do it while driving for example). In this case, not so much. It should fade over time if you don't use it.

    Simple, to search for products or shit I don't want Google to collect data for and to not show on my social media accounts. Or even to log into noFap (which I do in Incognito Mode). I was actually going to noFap when I unconsciously typed the wrong thing. Yes, it's muscle memory.

    It gives me some of that "dopamine" rush. I am trying to get rid of this habit as I know its a strategy of failure. I donot do it subconciously but more like half knowingly.... If you know what I mean.

    Yes, i would do that during the first few weeks in my reboot, lets say i want to google something in incognito mode, just in case someone randomly browsing my phone doesn't see it ... usually googling dumb stuff not NSFW related ... sometimes i would catch myself starting to type first two letters of my fav porn site and then i'd just stop and think "whoa, this thing is crazy"

    It is not accidental or out of habit. Let's call it gor what it is. If you want to make progress with this stuff you can start by telling the truth to yourself about the extent of your PMO addiction and habits. If you can't do that what hope do you have to reflect and get over it? So as you sid you do it for the dopamine. It is time to get serious about your recovery. Take accountability for it and stop using porn for your dopamine. Het a reboot going and do some exercise it will clear your head. Meditate it is good for the soul. I like the Headspace app for that.

    Your ability or inability to quit porn lies solely with you. Good luck my friend on your journey

    I have not used PMO for 30 days. Sometimes I just search for Keywords on google and Stop there. I know its bad but I am trying to get rid of that habit. Requires more determination and commitment. I am pretty much happy with the progress that I have made and I look to further improve myself. The other thing that I want to do is to utilise my time productively. Thanks for words of encouragement.

    I do exactly the same thing, i'm trying to come to nofap but just subconsciously start typing one of my previously frequented sites. I have set up an adult site filter to protect myself from any accidental slip ups.

    I have had as many relapses along the way as the next person. The act of visiting these sites to not PMO is a recipe for disaster. Just peeking is giving yourself that dopamine fix. No good can come of it. Good job on staying PMO free for 30 days but if you can't break that habit in time it will come back to haunt you. Stick with it mate. Extreme accountability and vigillance is what it will take to do well on this journey.

    This has never happened to me. Hope this doesn't happen to you in the future
