Write a short prayer: below asking God to redirect this desire toward a more holy outcome.
So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.—Genesis 3:6
There are no new tactics. Only old tactics manifest in many different ways.
And isn't it interesting that "eating" is defined by God as the first prohibition? Yet not all eating was prohibited, only eating from one tree. But often isn't it that which is off-limits that you want the most? "Goods, delights and desires" used, or better misused, for individual gain.
So what is it that you desire? What's your fruit of choice? Yes, I know you may say it's sexual lust. But look deeper as sex is not wrong. God wants man to enjoy the pleasures of sex, he just has boundaries for how it is to be used. Since pornography is outside of his boundaries, ask yourself what desire lies behind this ungodly action? Power. Control. Intimacy. Fulfillment. For what do you lust that you do not have, that you feel you deserve? What is it that is out of your reach? For a moment, forget the result of your sin—just answer this question—what "goods, delights, and desires" trigger your sin? This is the predictive problem.
