    i found i had to block google completely to block images. I had to add google.com to the website exceptions, turn on search engines category block and also add a url keyword block *google.

    Sorry overlooked that bit. Is it windows or mac? I know its definitely possible to remove k9 on windows but mac is difficult if not impossible

    Steve, it's on mac. Why do you think i want to remove K9? I'm just asking is there any better security?

    I've tried pretty much all the free filters and there isnt anything much better for mac in my opinion.

    I only suggested removing and reinstalling it as it is quite useful for someone to have the password if you find holes in the filter. Someone like an accountability partner.

    You can use the 'Self Control' app to block google (or w.e. else) if you want.

    How about not relying on programs you know how to uninstall, and instead just exercise actual self control?

    Covenant Eyes is the best...I found accountability much better then blockers.

    I don't think it's far fetched to realize that we can use both tools on our journey of recovery. Even so, depending solely on blockers is only putting a bandaid on a much deeper wound.

    InChristAlone porn gave me a limp noodle too, Gabe haha

    honestly man, k9 is garbage. that thing SUCKED. slowed my comp to a crawl, and could still find the images and erotic stories that were such a problem. While i cant help you with how to block the images, what i will say is that you should just ditch your comp and mobile net devices. I downgraded to a flip phone and that helped a ton! also makes me feel pretty cool when i hang up the phone 8). you can leave it with a friend until you recover. i find most people really dont "need" them. and if you do, go to the public library where you cant just go and touch yourself with porn playing on the screen. anyways, thats what worked for me. give it a try if you want
  12. porn is so deep rooted into the internet that there probably isn't a program around that can stop it

    good ol' fashioned will power is your true way out

    Nowist Believe that you can and you will.

    Gotta agree with Highbrow_Brute, even if you use a block porn software, it won't really block everything. Like in my case I used both Open DNS and a porn prevention app, but that didn't really work. Why it doesn't work? Because its your mindset that you have to work on in order to remain yourself even if you pop by a pornographic image by accident. So one has to cultivate their mind with better ideas than sticking to the old habits. It takes time, but it definitely works.

    And also, have clear goals that you want to hit towards to, or routines per say. Take some time off of technology.

    Porn blockers are good, the instill a sense of what life without porn is like. But I was able to delete mine, I studied IT when I was younger. I suppose they are there to take the wind out of the initial urge, force you to rethink the intention to view porn.

    I agree that the deeper issues need to also be looked at, our emotional intelligence and ability to deal with life effectively. Technology can very quickly and easily turn into escapism.

    if you want to block google images all you need to do create new new gmail account and write down hard to remember password then sign in with the new gmail lock safe search then hide password peace of paper somewhere you cant get it i.e. locker at work or school.
