Stopping for the Thousandth Time

by Dov (See all authors)

To someone who posted about his decision to stop (for the thousandth time), Dov writes:

Your last decision lasted two days. Being horrible at keeping any decisions myself, I am not about to criticize!

I am just trying to point out one thing:


You describe an incredible consistency when it comes to using lust. Acting out with lust seems to go through periods of daily or weekly consistency for you and you have stuck to it for years, apparently. I did the same. Whence the consistency?

Obviously we have a real problem that is bigger than we are, and it isn't going to just go away.

The steps are about accepting that this issue is bigger than we are and choosing to give up the fight when we see our track record.

I am a nobody, of course, and can only know myself, if I'm lucky. So all I am interested in doing with this post to you, is to point out something you may have missed.

Hatzlocho in doing with it what you will. Just look out for yet more decisions....
