This sounds like veinial sin to me. I would like to see spiritual evidence of this after the fact however by currently doing penance and attempting to do what is needed to stay away from this sin in the future (such as setting aside your computer, getting a blocker for such sites or getting rid of internet)....this would be stronger evidence that you really fell under SERVERE trial that puts LOTS of pressure on your will........it would show where your will really lies right now.
I've actually done most of that >> This was a brief lapse while on my tablet. I picked it up to read some manga and did this instead '-- I've already installed filters on my main desktop, and am looking for one for the tablet. I say the rosary almost daily, and have just recently added the 3 O'clock divine mercy chaplet to my routine. I am also attempting to add 30 minutes of Bible reading to my nightly routine, though sadly I haven't had much luck with that one. I have also deleted my collection, save for one or two straggling pieces I'm still hunting down.
I'm serious about getting past this sin, I hate it!
So I would put this under veinal provided what acts did you take after falling into the sin (even though you were able to pull yourself out)......I would be able to know where your will really lies by you trying to protect your soul after the sin. You know how weak you are....and someone who truly willed not to fall into this sin would change the environment around them to make sure they didn't do this again.
I prayed for strength and said an act of contrition. I am trying to change my environment, but basically everything I do in life except praying involves my computer, so It'd definitely difficult.
Thank you for you stance on it.
