Firefox

You will also have an option in the tools or settings menu of your internet browser to turn on something called ‘Private browsing’ or ‘Incognito mode’. If you do this before you visit the Nacoa website, your computer will automatically not save your visit to your history so you won’t need to worry about deleting anything afterwards.

If you are having trouble with any of this, please phone or email the Nacoa helpline or perhaps talk to someone else you trust and ask them if they know who to delete in internet history on a computer.

You are not alone

Remember the Six "C"s

I didn’t cause it
I can’t control it
I can’t cure it
I can take care of myself
I can communicate my feelings
I can make healthy choices
