Hi, newcomer here. I've been doing SA for pornography addicition. Major relapse over past several months. Main trigger is I need to be at my desk at work, but there's not that much work to do in this economy, so, you know what I do to fill the time.  I tried several times to install koshernet or netnanny, but the complex network which my company uses - offices in several countries, etc - does not allow employees to install ANY software. No exceptions (I've asked, but short of admitting that I have this problem which, by definition, violates company policy and is cause for dismissal, of course).  I B'H have good support system, therapist, wife and of course koshernet installed at home. But I need to make this hard to do at work, not easy.

Any ideas of how I can get this done? Is there a way that a 'buddy' outside of my company could track my internet movements, for example, or is that also going to be firewalled by the network?

Thanks very much for having this forum. It feels good just to type these words to frum chevra instead of the usual SA crowd.
Breaks the isolation.

gman,

Where do you sit at work?  If you're in an office with your back to a wall, ask to move to a more open location.  Having people pass by with the ability to see your computer screen should help.  I'm sure you can think up a number of plausible reasons for the request.

its not a company it is something you do your self with your computer its simple to do will not harm your computer.  the down side is that it can always be deleted the same way it was done the goal is to use it as a reminder so if you start going down that path you will remeber what happens if you go to that site and stop or let it send you to a diffrent one, or have someone you trustset it up so you do not know how to delete it.  all you need is the web site that you want to be redirected to's ip adress.

You might want to condiser enabling your content filter in Internet Explorer (tools>internet options>content), you create a password and add allowed sites or catagories.  Granted, it's a terrible filter and easily circumvented but if all you need is a barrier it might help.

for me I am always flying and there's internet everywhere in lounges hotels etc,
What I do is never have a free moment as in I am always reading information about the disease always posting and going to online meetings.

The Lubavitcher rebbe once used this idea about meat which is going through salting to remove blood kol hapolet ayno boleah. If something is letting out blood it does not absorb.

As well I have a seder in learning nothing special just an order of books to go through when I get bored chumash etc I learn abit of one read a story etc but in a seder....

Hashem should truly help you!
Tomorrow will be a better day, just don't keep saying that every time you wake up!
