Run once only, not on refresh

I have a PHP hit counter script that uses a flat file for a hit count, the problem is that if a user hit refresh the hit count goes up!

Is there a way to make this block of code execute one time only in some sort of IF stament?

I found include_once() but that was no help.

You could make a quick function that checks for a cookie, then if it is not present it sets one.

Then you increment your counter only if the cookie does not exist.

I thought of doing that after I made this post, and all is fine now!

Thanks
