I deleted the porn saved on my PC and he tells me he did the same.
The secret email addresses i set up which no one knew i had but me.
Saving files in deep directories where no one would think of finding them. But there is also an aspect of absurdity about this whole thing.
I am happy to see that the series has also spurred off discussions on other blogs in this area.
The value of the comments was not just limited to hearing from those who were personally experiencing these problems, including the “recovering” or the “recovered”, but more importantly, the thread likely provided a glimpse of hope and practical suggestions for the silent majority of other addicts.
When i was new to the sin, i would never have dared to buy a dirty mag from the local store out of a sense of shame and embarrassment.
But the internet made everything accessible to me, and i could see what i wanted and when i wanted, all in the privacy of my own home.
It was like i’d crossed a threshold, stepped over an important line.
And unfortunately, having crossed that line, i haven’t looked back and have used the card numerous times since. You promise yourself for a long time that you won’t cross a certain line, but then you do, and it becomes easy to repeat that sin again.
But having crossed that line only once advances you to the next level of sinfulness.
