I'm suffering from insomnia at the moment (probably a withdrawal symptom) so that's why I'm posting a lot at night. :)
I was thinking about something and wondering if anyone else thought the same way at all.
I've sometimes found that when I've had downloaded porn on my computer, it somehow acts as a deterrent to seeking out more porn. What I've often found is that it's the hunt or the search for porn that seems to bring excitement. It's almost as if, when I don't have any porn at all, I will want to automatically go and look for porn. But if there is something there already, then I can sometimes not even bother to look for any and might even go a while without using any. It's almost the knowledge of knowing that something is there and can be accessed any time, so you might not bother with it. An analogy I can give to perhaps explain it is like when you live in a city full of landmarks but you never tend to visit them because you know that they are always there. However, as a tourist, you might make more of an active effort to go and look at them. It almost feels the same way with porn that is there and porn you have to seek out.
I know that there can also be the temptation to want to look at the existing porn on my computer, but often I don't always feel the desire to, so not looking at something that exists (and not seeking out new porn) is marginally better than not having anything on the computer at all and seeking out new material.
Now this might sound like a ridiculous concept and I'm not in any way justifying having porn on my computer, because the ideal solution would be to not have ANY porn there and not to want to go and look for porn either.
Does anyone think the situation I've described is in any way an acceptable (temporary) solution that can act as a deterrent? Or should I completely purge my computer of this and deal with the consequences (and withdrawal)?
