Moreover, a certain place could act as a trigger. For example, you are with your phone or laptop and now you close the door. This actually will act like  a trigger and ultimately leads you to those websites from where everything starts.

The scenario is the same as, putting a bottle of alcohol in front of a drunkard who wants to quit drinking and tell him not to touch the bottle in order to improve himself.
