Struggle with Porn? Here’s Your “Out”

Struggle with Porn? Here’s Your “Out”

Millions struggle with addiction to pornography. Millions of others struggle with something less than an addiction, but an occasional moment of weakness and spiral into searching for and watching porn until they feel guilty enough to stop. Then they feel dirty for a while regretting their temporary dive into the abyss.

Well, if you’re looking for motivation to keep you from ever doing it again, this article is for you.

In the old world, you would have to go out and buy pornographic material. Adult bookstores, movie stores, etc. were the only place. Or you could order magazines or buy them in a public store. The reason relatively few people got into that world is because most people don’t want to be seen going into those stores, and don’t want to risk someone seeing a magazine like that show up in their mailbox. It’s a “label” they want to stay away from. No one wants to be labeled a “porn-seeker”. It’s akin to being labeled a “pervert”.

Then along came the Internet. The proliferation of porn since the Internet has been staggering. The stats are grim:

  • Today Porn revenue is larger than all of the COMBINED revenues of all professional football, baseball and basketball franchises in the United States
  • Last week over 50% of men viewed porn on the Internet
  • Children, teens and women are viewing porn in rapidly increasing numbers as well

It’s because the Internet is the place you can look at all the porn you want in the privacy of your own home, with none the wiser…right?

Well, as they say, those days are no more. Let me save you from having to read all the “privacy agreements” you’ve agreed to by installing things like Internet browsers, using Internet applications of any kind, signing up for Google applications, and many more categories of things related to being on the Internet.

In today’s world, there is no more “hiding” in the privacy of your own home. EVERYTHING you do on your computer, whether it’s going to a website, searching for any word or phrase in any search engine, clicking on any link in Facebook, Google+ or any other Internet application or pretty much anything else you do on the Internet (even if you’re not connected to the internet when you do it) is “captured”.

Many people think they still live in a world where they can go to their browser settings and select “clear browser history” and suddenly all the questionable sites and searches they have done are gone. Well, that is FAR from the truth.

The reality is that companies like Google, Facebook, YouTube, Microsoft and many others have so much information about you from your history of everything you’ve done, you have a “profile”. Within that profile that these companies have on you is the history you probably would be horrified to think it could ever be made public to anyone else. That’s because your profile contains all your history. It knows what sites you like to visit, what words you search, how many times you’ve gone to questionable sites and how long you stay, etc. etc. etc.

You search one questionable word in your browser and it becomes a PERMANENT PART OF YOUR PROFILE. NEVER to be erased, no matter what you try to do. Think about that next time you feel the need to search for something salacious in any Internet application, or even watch a YouTube video.

Now you can try to have comfort in thinking that google or other companies will never release that information about you. But if you believe that I have a bridge to sell you. In the world that hackers are constantly hacking into databases and stealing private information about everybody on earth, it’s just a matter of time before anyone can get that info.

The only answer right now, is to realize there is NO PRIVACY when it comes to things like this. The only way to keep your profile and private life clean is to NEVER AGAIN even type a questionable word or phrase, and especially a questionable website in any browser you are on.

Realize that everything you do becomes part of your “Internet life profile” that eventually will be known. Companies can already purchase your name to advertise directly to based on your habits. If you have a porn problem and haven’t started receiving material related to your habit, just wait. Internet companies know who you are. They know every time you visit their site. They send you targeted information and ads and they know when, where and how you come to see their information. Every time.

The true reality is that you can’t “privately” keep this habit anymore. The only way is to stop…completely. Every time you’re tempted to go into the abyss, think about the profile you are building with the first word you type, or that simple picture you click on, and think about how you will have to explain that in the near future. Explain what you were searching for and why. To your wife, your kids, your parents.

How does your profile look currently?

Because it’s not hidden. It’s recorded…all of it.
