That is the issue. You didn't even last a week. If you really want to change, then install the app I linked and for your phone, this or an iOS equivalent and block reddit and any mobile reddit apps for a month. Fixing your addiction to r-incels and reddit is like a drug addiction. But since you can't become physically dependent on a website like you can drugs, its much more possible to go full Cold Turkey. Now, you don't have to do any of this. It's up to you entirely. You're the one in control here.
As i need my phone to do some stuff morning or evening (like using radio/music, checking weather etc), I use this app to block all irrelevant apps that make me losing time.
I use it for 2 weeks now and pretty useful so far.
Glad to hear that. I have mostly been a casual fan but still Kpop and social media itself started taking over my time too much but then I downloaded an app for blocking apps to block kpop Content sources except music and social media in general. I set it on times where I have to do a task or a hobby to not get distracted. I also try to plan my day ahead or in the beginning of each day. Yeah it's sad to admit but I have to manage me somehow.
Ps. I also block reddit as well 🙄🙄
Check out App Block I had this exact same problem and this really did help so much! Come to think of it, I forgot to install this on my new phone and I really ought to, I'm slipping back into old habits!
Try this AppBlock
You can also use an ad blocker like Blokada or DNS66 and use a custom filter from here which also blocks adult contents.
I have premium version of AppBlock
You can activate the strict mode & you can set the degree of strictness like no profile editing (most basic) & in the highest level you can block profile editing + app uninstallation + access to settings (this one will make sure you don't go ahead & delete the data related to the app)
Being stuck on my phone was actually seriously affecting my life. So there were two android apps I used:
AppBlock - Customizable with many features. Notably you can set it so that you can't uninstall it without a pin code, so you can have a friend set one in secret if you don't trust yourself (which you shouldn't.)
Off The Grid - the nuclear option that I had to resort to because I kept disabling AppBlock. Only allows you to make phone calls, use the camera, and use one app of your choice (I allowed my texting app.) You can watch an ad (which can be permanently disabled) or pay them $1 to unlock your phone, and pay subscription to allow more apps. There's no way I'm paying someone else to unlock my own phone, so it's really effective.
Because I won't lock down my phone myself, I schedule the app to do it until I get to work. Turns out there's a lot you can do in the mornings before work when you're not a slave to your phone/reddit. It sucks the first couple of times but I've gotten used to it.
Here is what I used, I paid for it tho but it's worth it https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en
For me the best feature is the Strict Mode, for 30 days, you can't turn off the settings that you've made there and you will not be able to uninstall the app, so you have no choice but to do other stuff rather than spending hours on the phone. :)
Right now, made Tawbah, pray, contemplate, and ask for guidance again. :)
J'ai eu un peu la même et voici ce que j'ai fait dans le cas du téléphone :
1-trouver un coin dans ta maison où ton téléphone est quand tu ne l'utilises pas. En gros, ton tel devient une sorte de téléphone fixe quand tu es a la maison et si tu ne téléphone pas. Ne pas l'avoir sur soit, c'est ne pas le sentir dans sa poche
2-posé, évite qu'il soit trop visible. Loin des yeux, loin du coeur
3-prend un réveil, et téléphone INTERDIT dans la chambre. Genre, il rentre, il se brique
4-lis sur libre ou liseuse avant de dormir, genre 30min avant. Tu vas voir, soit ça endort, soit ça captive, mais tes nuits ne seront pas les mêmes.
5-supprime les applis nocives, ou par défaut rends les chiantes à utiliser : mets Facebook par exemple en 5e page de ton homescreen, ou même pas du tout dessus c'est encore mieux
6-fais la chasse au notifs : interdits les notifs aux app pour lesquelles ça ne t'intéresse pas, mets les en silencieux quand ça t'intéresse mais c'est jamais pressé à la seconde. Ne laisse que les basiques en notif normal : appel, SMS, calendrier
7-pour gérer les applis et site web et leur fixer des limites, j'utilise AppBlock. Ça permet de bloquer un site web, une appli ou une notif en fonction de ton lieu, ton nombre d'utilisation, l'heure... Par exemple, les notifs de mes applis pro sont bloquées le soir et le week-end, comme ça elles ne me sollicitent pas
8-trouves une activité, promene toi en "oubliant" ton tel. Plus tu vas résister, plus ça sera facile
There are app blockers on the Google play store that prevent you from going into certain apps, and you set the timings for the block. This is the first result when you search for app blockers. I don't know if it's any good because I've never tried it.
That might not be quite what you're looking for, because I think you'd need to download the food delivery app in order to block it in the first place. I think you could probably modify your phone or network settings in some way to prevent your being able to download the app, but unfortunately I'm not tech-savvy enough to advise you on that.
On Android, there's AppBlock and Block. I tried looking for similar apps for iOS, but from what I've seen they seem to be more centered around parental control than helping adults who have issues with self control. I don't know too much about iOS. Maybe someone else can weigh in on that.
You can block certain apps (browsers, triggering apps like social media, etc) during certain periods of time with this app, called AppBlock.
Yes, Playstore. I've never used any of them. After your comment I went to try some.
I've found this one that works: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=pt_BR
And it does what I thought it would. Just after you open a blocked app, it jumps on top of it and blocks it visually. You can still find the blocked app in your home screen and app list. But it is unusable. I still don't know what could be done about iOS devices.
As you may know, Android apps have to ask for permission for most of the stuff. And I don't recall ever seeing something that could fuck up other apps, and I don't think it has nor is possible. The "Draw Over" is the most interesting approach, and can be easily scheduled, as you can see in the example above.
Not sure about this case scenario, but one of those "App Blocking" apps for productivity could do the trick.
AppBlock does the trick for me.
Hi! I'm very interested in this. I've been using AppBlock for some time now.
What makes this different than AppBlock? I'm assuming something along the lines of it uses less resources, etc. (which is primarily why I'm excited to try it out), but I'm wondering if there are any key features I missed that AppBlock doesn't have. I'm thinking the 'swipe to left' feature looks new ... looking forward to checking it out.
Thanks -- :)
AppBlock has a "Strict Mode" Levels 1-3.
1: You can't edit "profiles" (so like no: oh~ I'll turn it off for only 10 minutes, then spend 8+ hrs on your phone...)
2: Disables uninstall of the app (I...have actually had a problem with uninstalling this app before I realized the strict mode thing)/ access to "device settings" (where you could just, you know, not allow the app to override other apps)
3: All of the above at once
Note: I haven't tried Strict Mode, I literally just noticed it after reading this and the replies and seeing if the app I usually use has ability to put a long password when blocking, as I figured that would be good). It has a pin code password, idk if it has long password. And to turn it off there's the pin, plug your phone in (I guess hide your charger in another room? once you put Strict Mode on, so its not as tempting?), Also can set timer for how long stays on.
Also, I'm going to try the Strict Mode now that I know it exists, since I got to write a 5pg research paper due in 10 hours and didn't sleep last night. Even if you end up not using it, I'll still write whether it "worked" for me or not.
NotiStar is pretty much just a notification history log.
I think you want more of a DND application that can do per app DND. Something like this perhaps? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock
I have no clue how good this app actually is but maybe it will help find what you are looking for.
You can use an app called AppBlock. I use it to block many distracting apps. It even has a strict mode which renders you totally incapable of opening an app you've told it to block for a whole day. This is the app:-
Use this for apps.
If you use macrodroid, you may set a macro to FC an app during a certain period upon launch and autostart.
Also you may disable the Sim after your work hours.
I'm using App Block for my phone, well, obviously it blocks any apps you add to your list or it can set time limits per day. It can also extend to being a website blocker. Honestly, it helped me for the past month as I blocked most of my browsing/soc med apps past 8:30 PM, that way I can no longer browse or stay late at night. :D
Here's the link if you want: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en
I use AppBlock https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock
It's possible to filter out certain apps (and websites) for a given timeframe. It also captures the blocked apps notifications and shows them as soon as an app becomes unblocked (although, not the initial app notification is shown, but an AppBlock notification about the fact that it happened.
Trying using an appblock like this one : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en_IN&gl=US
I have been using this for a while now and it greatly helped me limit my own smartphone usage.
Can't you use it without telling them that you have been addicted to porn? I mean, you can maybe find some alternate reasons like you are using it to somehow control your internet addiction? I think it will not be a good idea to tell them about porn addiction.
Also, there are apps that cost around 2 dollars which blocks nsfw sites, and the apps you have (depending on your preference) you can check this one I'm using https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock
I used this app when I was using android - you can block uninstall, but then you are no longer able to go to your phone settings at all which is kind of a deal breaker imo. It's like 5 bucks for the premium version i think. I got rid of my android devices and do everything on my computer now and I like iphone's Screen time feature for blocking things and then you can have someone else set a passcode and not tell you it so you can't disable it.
I use an app on Android called Appblock (link: AppBlock) and honestly, I paid for it too.
The app basically lets you create profiles that limit certain apps during set times. For example, I have two main ones that have rules/conditions, and 3 others. If you try and open an app during a time that rules are active, it will shut it down or have a timer going to stop it.
Another benefit is that the rules you set up can be locked for editing, meaning you can't disable the rule, unless you meet the unlock criteria (e.g connected to a charger, or a set time).
1) Productive Morning - I often would spend 5 minutes on instagram in the morning, and let it turn into an hour on instagram. I have a rule set up that between 6-8AM I can only spend 10 minutes total, per hour, on Instagram, Facebook, and Reddit.
2) Work Hours - I'm a student right now, going back to school for an ABSN degree, and like to focus during the traditional workday so I have the evening to spend with my wife. From 8AM-5PM I only get 5 minutes per hour on any combination of instagram, facebook, and reddit. This way I can still take a break, but I'm aware of how long it is.
3) Total time limits: During a day, I can only spend 25 minutes on Instagram, Reddit, and Facebook each. In total I still can have days where I spend nearly an hour and a half on social media... but its gone down a lot, and this way I don't have to give the apps up totally.
If you download it, I hope this gives you some inspiration on how to try and use it!
Sorry I'm so late to this, but the Android app AppBlock is perfect for this. You can set it so you can't just say "fuck the schedule" and go back to surfing the internet.
Appblock is the one that works for me. You can block both apps and sites, put a password or block the apps completely if you want. Now they're introducing a screen time feature, let's see how it works.
Here's another option. Very polished and full featured. Seems much easier to use than the alternatives in this thread. Free version has limitations, but enough to test properly. Full version ~$5 USD.
I'm not affiliated with the app. Still considering buying.
Keen to hear your feedback compared to buzkill / others.

App Block For Android ^^PlayStore
Con un app come AppBlock (link playstore) puoi impostare dei profili orari per bloccare le applicazioni che vuoi, magari ti può servire..
DbD addiction is really tough,I know because I'm fighting it too.
I have owned the game on Steam,Switch and Mobile.
Steam:I removed the game from my library(there are guides online that can help you remove the game from the library,wich means you have to rebuy it.A more drastic thing could be deleting the whole steam account)
Switch:parental control blocking games 18+.It is crucial that you don't go look at what the PIN to unblock it is.
Mobile:thanks to this Appblock ,I am able to completely block the game on Switch and Mobile:I block the access to Switch Parental Controls(point of this is:to play the game on Switch the pin is needed,and the only way to know it is by looking in the app,wich is blocked)and DbD Mobile(you can uninstall it after blocking it,the app will remember that you blocked it).
Then you can activate the severe mode,and there are 2 ways you can use it:PIN(good if you have someone else helping you quit)or,if you are alone,you can set a timer.When severe mode is active,there is NO WAY to unblock the apps(Appblock can't be uninstalled and you can't access the device's settings,wich I think is the main downside).(If there are ways to bypass the appblock,PLEASE don't tell me.I don't know them and I don't want to know them)
If you have the game on PS4 or Xbox one,I don't really know how to help you-probably you can use parental controls in a similar way to the Switch and block the access to them.
You could try apps like these if you want to block certain distracting stuff on your phone without turning off your internet. Of course, that doesn't stop you from browsing reddit on your PC. But if you have a "let me just look at my phone to check if i have notifications or messages" addiction like me, it may help you a bit focusing.
Hey there king, install app block if your on and Android it's an amazing app and really helps me a lot even though I just use the free version. It can block apps and WEBSITES also you can set a charger lock [ A charger connection is need to change or disable the block]. Also delete any thing porn related that you have
Here's the Play store link
I extremely recommend that you start MEDITATION, it makes you more mindful of your actions.
YOU ONLY RELAPSE BECAUSE YOUR BRAIN GOES ON FORCE AUTO PILOT and makes you feed your addiction because it has been wired that way. The only was to stop that it to make sure you brain isnt is a position to go into autopilot (eg. For me I had habbit to taking my phone to the bathroom, it caused me to relapse several times. It only stopped when I stopped taking my phone to the bathroom)
When you're more mindful you will prevent yourself form going on auto pilot
The only was to truly be free of this addiction is to rewire your brain and to do that you need to abstain from Porn, Masturbation and Orgasam for 90 days.
To Do that you need disciplines that you MUST do everyday, just motivation alone isn't going to help. Motivation can loose and fade away but discipline is strict and needs to be strict.
The Two main disciplines need to succeed in nofap are Exercise and Meditation
These Two are just a foundation and you can add many other disciplines to better your self.
I, myself am currently fighting against it too and if you wish we could be accountablity partners.
I wish you luck, king
I'm hesitant to pay for an app like Tasker that may only serve one relatively minor function for me. I've found AppBlock (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock) which allows for blocking notifications (and/or app & site access) based on time and/or location. I can set one profile to block after work hours. I can set a second profile to block when I'm at work. We'll see if it meets my needs.
If you are on your phone, there are apps that can put your browser or another app offline during certain hours. For iphone, https://familytime.io/features/ios-app-blocker.html. For android, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en.
Basically, you can limit access, hours of access, or even time per session. I prefer to not have a tendency of depending on willpower, but a "set it and forget it" tool. It takes the responsibility off me remembering, and still get the benefit.
I use Appblock, it's for Android. But you have to pay to have strict mode for more than a day, which is when you can't modify the app settings and neither the device settings so you can't delete it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en
i found this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en
browse the 'similar' section as well.
It is called “app block“. You can set a daily timer for every or you also can block apps for several days. But you should have enough self control that you dont go in the app and switch the block off.
Assuming you're on Windows 10 (previous versions should still work), Task scheduler is a built in app so you shouldn't need to download anything.
These instructions are based on how I have it laid out but there are lots of other ways to set it up online
*Create more if you want to set different times on different days
And finally for Android I use AppBlock
It would help if you told us which operating system you're using, as the potential solutions will be different for each one.
A quick Google search turns up an Android app that does what you want.
With App Block, you should be able to set blocks of time where you don't want to see the notifications, you can also set it to block the app if it is distracting you from work. There's not a widget button for turning it on/off though.
Block App Notification, but Allow Application Launch.
Use apps that help you block useless apps when you don't need them. If you are on android I'd recommend this and if you are on windows I'd recommend this. If you are an Apple user, there probably is something like the aforementioned apps.
I guess that would help you for now. But since the exams are only on November, you have ample time to probably come up with a system for entertaining yourself and still have time for studies...
They have these apps all over the place... you haven't seen them? There are literally 50 in the Play Store. Forest, Stay Focused, Cold Turkey, etc. etc....
The run on timers.
Anyway, I found a good one, I think: AppBlock.
Calm.com - A place where you can calm your mind by listening soothing music. For both desktop and mobile.
Rescue time - An application for computer and laptop that will tell you that whether you have used your time for productive work or you have wasted your time.
You can used this app for mobile - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en
You can use this way also. - http://www.bitdefender.com/support/how-can-i-block-certain-apps-with-parental-control-1196.html
Maybe try something like App Block?
But, it's better to learn to control yourself than to leave it to an app you can easily disable.
Ignore the link below, use this
I think I got the picture.
Here's a workaround if you want to reduce/quit your porn addiction. Download AppBlock and Niagara
App block to lock yourself out of telegram for a set period.
Niagara to hide the apps.
Don't cheat and delete the apps.
If you want to watch porn consciously try and distract yourself.
When you do give in to your urge, don't be hard on yourself, recognise you fucked up that's a big part of recovery and start from scratch.
If you like to keep track of streaks (days) you went without watching porn.
You will have to reset it every time you watch porn.
Hope that helps.
This should do the trick
Ik kan Appblock aanraden. Ik heb hem gewoon de hele ochtend tot lunchtijd en de hele middag tot een uur of 5 aan staan. Ideaal.
Thanks for the suggestion! Installed. Y'all can find it here in the Android Play Store.
C'è una estensione di Firefox/Chrome che fa al caso tuo.
E anche un'app di Android, se lo usi di più dal cellulare.
edit: aggiunti link
Appblock might be what you are looking for.
I found something. You have an android phone right?
AppBlock can set blocks based on amount of time used, time of day, and location.
You don't necessarily have to use Tasker for this. I tested this app and it works exactly the way you asked for. See https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock
Awesome thanks for sharing. Here's the link for English readers:
This app blocks any app for a specific period of time.
But as the other guy said, you should also build some self-control.
This app can block apps of your choice during a period of time you select.
AppBlock is also good
Something like AppBlock? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en Maybe if you need more functionality just contact the developer ...
There's a lot of different apps that do this:
YourHour Screentime Control
Turning on grayscale can vary per brand. Here are the steps for Samsung:
Go to settings > Accessibility > Color Adjustment > Grayscale
It's called AppBlock.
Maybe start by asking your family doctor or walk-in clinic to arrange a meeting with a psychiatrist to discuss your concern.
You can read more about sexual addiction here:
You can explore Sex-Addicts Anonymous:
Or other related twelve-step groups.
Other resources that can help certain sex addicts:
I grant that some of the above resources are for more extreme cases of sexual addiction, but for those with more severe struggles, I include them here too.
This was it
Love this app. Especially the strict mode feature.
i believe "AppBlock - Stay Focused" has that feature
AppBlock might be for you
I used to use AppBlock on mobile and stayfocussed to block them, these days I don't use AppBlock as much as I usually keep social media apps uninstalled and just install them as and when I want them.
Also I use Toggl to manage my time, my day doesn't start or stop depending on what time it is, it's based on my time tracked in Toggl. So if I have to work through lunch due to meetings I finish earlier, if I slack off and distract myself I finish later.
Here you go: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock - it can block websites in mobile inaddition to apps,
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wverlaek.block - it can only block apps.
Both of them can be set to block if you exceed time limit etc
I have downloaded an app blocker today for that. This app works fine on my phone.
AppBlock - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock
Try 'appblock stay focused'
Works really well for me.

Here's some ad blocking apps for android that might work.
I don't have any links for ios
App Block: Android Link
This app offers many options for flexible blocking.
I like AppBlock on Android for this.
I use this. It's helped me.
Are you looking for something like this? AppBlock https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.mobilesoft.appblock&hl=en
AppBlock - Stay Focused
in case someone else searches for this -
PC: i wound up using a program called Cold Turkey. It uses the HOSTS file to block websites, and can also block programs at scheduled times. There's another program called SelfRestraint, but i didn't try it and know nothing about it.
android: i tried many lock apps and the only two i found that meet my needs are AppBlock - Stay Focused and Offtime.
Offtime is my preferred app for now, it has scheduled lock times, notification suppression, device administrator setting keeps you from uninstalling it, seems to restart instantly if you kill the process. You can whitelist certain contacts/apps to be allowed use during the lock time, but it will not block any outgoing calls unfortunately.
AppBlock has a similar feature set, but it doesn't have the administrator setting so it's easy to bypass by uninstalling or killing the process. It also has a blacklist instead of whitelist - You can blacklist any app that you want to be locked during the scheduled lock time. I found that you can block the contacts app to prevent outgoing calls.
edit: found another android app called QualityTime which looks very nice and has similar features to Offtime. This one has a manual override in case you want to cancel the lock.. maybe a bad idea..
The thing you're looking for
