First time posting for me! I have a solid filter on my laptop. That being said, I always seem to find a way around it, this typically occurs in the form of nc-17 and erotica movies (softcore) found on websites that you can stream movies from for free. For some reason the filter doesn't block theses sites unless I type them in by hand and even if I do there's always another one. I was wondering if anyone has any experience using a filter that lets them block by keyword i.e. erotica, porn, sex, ect. (sorry for being blunt) and they've found that the filter will actually block these types of websites and movies. I know this is a very specific question but any insight is much appreciated.

Also if anyone can relate to this struggle, I think it'd be helpful to hear what others have done to combat the "numb" and sort of mindless searching for arousing content even with the filter.

Welcome

How about looking into accountability software like covenant eyes ?

As far as the second question- I have been saved on more than one occasion  by picking up  a phone and calling or texting a friend

Fix the filter and see to work on changing your bad habit.
a filter is just a fence which you can climb over.
 NO, It's not all or nothing, just every bit counts!

I failed yesterday, and I might fail tomorrow. But just for today I'm going to give it a try.
