If I may suggest something else; The easiest way to save yourself is to catch yourself before you fall into the lusting hole. The moment you starting to feel bored or sad or whatever it is that starts this cycle, that's the time to catch yourself. Once you go down the path into thinking or looking, it's way harder to control yourself.

Catch yourself when you see that you're getting vulnerable and switch to something positive that you enjoy. 

​Generally, if you don't have something positive to look forward to daily, then you're constantly struggling. On the other hand, if you can find something else that can give you happiness, you will struggle the first few months to break free of this habit, but you're most likely be able to prevail and finally live in freedom.

 Don't give in! You've already made it so far you can keep on going!!
Think about how good you'll feel if you say no to desire and compare that to how bad you'll feel if you say yes.

Desire is unique in the way that it is never fulfilled -  if you give in the desire comes back even more powerful in just a few days. Telling yourself that its ok because this is really the last time doesn't work because you are just adding new images to your head that will cause future falls.

The Joy of triumph over the yetzer hara is worth the effort it takes to win. It IS worth it! Keep fighting!
