Respected Brother in Islam

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

You will have to continue striving to combat your desire in this regard. Even if you stumble and repeat your mistake do not be deterred, continue to fight your desire until you eventually win the battle and are able to overwhelm your base calling. Courage is your strong point in opposing your nafs (base desire).

Whenever you experience a  desire for seeing something haraam then immediately remind yourself that Almighty Allah is watching. Question yourself, would I do such a despicable act in the presence of my parents, family elders, teachers or a pious personality ? How can I do it in the presence of my  Allah who has undeservedly blessed me with everything that I possess. He is watching me all the time and has complete control over every  move and breath that I take?

Renew your taubah and repentance every day for a few minutes. Pray sincerely to Allah to purify you of this and all other evil desires and thoughts. Insha Allah you will be cured from this malady.  You may also recite  this dua from the hadith regularly, "Allahumaj'al wasawisa qalbee khashyataka wa zikrak", meaning O Allah transform the whispers of my heart into your obedience and remeberance.  May Allah protect you and all of us from the dictates of our nafs (inner desires).

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.

Was salaam
