I was exposed to porn at age 6 and spent the next 20 years of my life (relatively) alone in my struggle. I tried other filters / software, but none of them were made for adults. It wasn't until I heard of Covenant Eyes that I started getting the accountability I needed.
Oh sure, I had good counsel, read all the books, heard all the sermons, and talked to all the people who had answers... but none of them really helped me where I needed it most: in the moment, online, all the time.
I love it. I feel like my wife and best friend (my two accountability partners) are sitting with me on the computer, helping me make wise choices online. Covenant Eyes helps keep me honest.
Is this excessive? Possibly. Is it necessary? For me, absolutely. Will I ever use the internet without it again? Probably not. Is it worth sacrificing my ability to look at porn so that my wife can enjoy peace of mind? You 'betcha!

HOW IT WORKS: (borrowed from http://www.covenanteyes.com/services/internet-accountability/)
RECOMMENDED FOR ADULTS:
Covenant Eyes Internet Accountability differs from filtering (also available) in that it doesn’t block any websites you visit. Instead, it monitors all the sites you visit and sends a report to your Accountability Partner.
Here’s how it plays out:
Your Accountability Partner should be someone you trust and feel comfortable with, and who feels comfortable calling you out if you’re starting to go down sketchy paths, like a friend or mentor. If you’re not sure who to pick when you sign up, don’t worry! You can always add a partner later. (Who should be my Accountability Partner?)
Once you’ve signed up for Internet Accountability and downloaded the software, just use the Internet like you normally do. While you’re online, Covenant Eyes Accountability works in the background, recording and rating every site you visit. (What do our ratings mean?)
Once a week, your Accountability Partner will get a report listing the sites you’ve visited, and you and your partner can view these reports online in “My Account” at any time. Unlike your Internet history, which can be cleared, you can’t delete anything from these activity reports – what you visit, your partner will see. (View a report.)
Now that your Accountability Partner has seen your report, he or she should feel free to talk to you about it. Together this online transparency will help you learn to use the Internet with integrity.
Covenant Eyes Internet Accountability is available for Windows, Mac, Android™ phones and tablets (including Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD), iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch®.
If you would like to talk more about this technology, please call or email me. You can also call the Covenant Eyes toll free number: 1-877-479-1119
I've helped several people get set up with Covenant Eyes and they have experienced a ton of freedom!
