Hey everyone, its pretty cool there are so many guys working on their ruchnius! I wanted to know if anyone had an eitza for me: I am in college and a lot of the work is done on line, and basiclly everyone wathches youtube videos to get whats going on in the class. The professors also say we should look at youtube. I have webchaver already, but its not critical enough in what considered over the line. And once I am on youtube i find it almost imp to control myself. Does anyone have any ideas?

Besides the accountability software, do you have a filter?  I believe Gentech filter is able to allow Youtube and filter the inappropriate videos.  I have not seen this on my own, but that is what I was told by my TAG representative.

I used to have gentech on an old phone. It worked to some degree. I wonder if it works on a computer? I could make inquiries about it

I agree with Dave M that aside from accountability, it is important to have filter. I also think it might help if you are accountable to someone and they are able to see your activity. You might be less pron to see bad things if you know there is someone watching you and will contact you if they see you see something bad.
Other than that, I could just tell you to:1. be in contact with someone when you find yourself struggling, or when you know you're going on youtube and it might cause trouble. 2. when doing schoolwork focus n work and don't think about relaxing
If you want to talk more, or need anymore help, i am always available either through gye or email-360gye@gmail.com

Your friend,
