I'm sick and tired of feeling TRAPPED IN LUST. I've stopped before - had some sobriety - but always seem to fall back into it again and again. What can I do to finally STOP?!


I've already worked the 12 Step Program. I think I know what it's supposed to do for me. But it doesn't work! This is so frustrating. This Program will never work for me! Is there any hope for me?!

We Must Fight Back

“We’re in a very crazy situation and Hashem is going to push us to the corner,” he continued. “The world is a filthy place. There are many inner, hidden sins of immorality. God is using the Muslims to wake the Jewish people up from their spiritual slumber.”

Everything that happens on Earth is connected to what's happening in Shomayim. In every Jew, there are 70 nations struggling for dominance over the "Jew" part inside of us. Considering the current situation, we must fight back. We, the GYE members, are Hashem's front-line soldiers! We must stand up with messirus nefesh for Hashem and for what's right, and not give in to the darkness and lies of the 70 nations inside of us. This must be OUR way of fighting back against the madness today.

Personal Stories
A Letter from the Yezter Hara

To my star pupil,

I am writing this letter to let you know what I think of you. Up here in heaven things are not like they are down on Earth. Over there, people only know what they can see. If they see a person is "successful", they think that he is the greatest guy. When they see somebody struggling, they think he might be one of the weaker elements.

Let me tell you something. Hashem gives every person certain abilities that nobody knows about down where you live. Some people are capable of tremendous things, while others were put there for much smaller purposes. Only Hashem in His infinite wisdom is able to give every person exactly what he needs, to reach his potential.

I am very misunderstood. Most people hate me, and I don't really blame them. Most people think that my job is to make sure that they fail in all aspects of Mitzvos, and that I rejoice every time they sin. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Did you ever watch a boxing coach train his student? It is really a funny sight. The coach will put on gloves, and fight against his student. At first, he won't hit him so hard, or throw his best punches. But, as the student gets better and better, the coach will start to fight him harder and harder. He does this so that the student will improve his skills, and become the best boxer he can be. This is where it gets strange. Every time the coach knocks down the student, the student gets yelled at!! But finally, when the coach threw everything he has at his student, and not only does he withstand the beating, but he knocks the coach down, there is nobody in the world happier then the coach himself!

This is exactly how I feel. If you fail right away, and don't even try to fight back, I see that there is not much talent to work with, and so I take it easy on you. But if you get back up swinging, I realize that I may have a real winner here, and so I start to intensify the beating. With every level that you go up, I increase the intensity of the fight. If you finally deal me a blow that knocks me out, I will get up and embrace you and rejoice with your success.

Sometimes my job is very disappointing I see a person with a lot of potential and I start right in on him. He fights back for a while, but when the fight gets too tough, he quits and just remains on whatever level he was on. (And he usually ends up going down!) I feel like yelling at him, "Get up you fool! Do you have any idea how much more you could be accomplishing?!" But I am not allowed to do so. I just leave him alone, and go try to find another promising candidate.

If I have chosen you to be the target of my more fierce battles, it was not for no reason! You have tremendous ability! You were born into a very special family, you have Rabbeim who really care about you, and parents who would help you grow in Torah and Mitzvos. You are a very respectful and kind person.

I am writing to you now, because I have a very serious request to ask of you. Please don't step fighting! Don't give up! I have been beating too many people lately, and I am losing patience, Believe in yourself, because I would not be involved with you as much as I am if I didn't think you could beat me. Know what your strengths are! A great Rabbi once said: "Woe is to he who doesn't know his weaknesses. But, 'Oy Vavoy' to him who doesn't know his strengths - for he will not have anything with which to fight."

Always remember one thing: you have a secret weapon at your disposal. I shouldn't really be telling you - but I will anyway. Hashem himself is watching our "training" sessions very closely. I'm pleased to inform you that He's rooting for you! If things should ever get tough, almost too tough to bear, just callout to Him with a prayer, and He will immediately come to your aid. I wish you the best of luck, and I hope that after 120 years when your time is up in that world of falsehood, you will come up here to the world of truth, where I will be waiting for you with open arms, to congratulate you on your victory, and personally escort you to your place next to the Kisey HaKavod.

Sincerely, and with great admiration I remain,
Your Yetzer Hara

The Daily Fight
By neroyair

Hey! What's all this commotion?

I second Hillel's notion.

There is no magic potion

Nor "anti-falling" lotion.


Stay a while.

No room for self pity or denial.

Put your "Will power" on trial

And guilt, despair, and other thoughts so vile!

It's time we all adjust.

Cuz in G-d we all do trust

He won't create a "bust"

It's our daily victory over lust!

Just follow our dear Cap'n.

Through him Hashem will make things happ'n.

Just keep your head on straight, and keep those toes a tapp'n

We only fall when we jump off the ball and the addiction catches us napp'n!

So give and give and give some more

That's what we were created for.

To just keep takin', our purpose forsak'n, would be the biggest bore...

Fears, resentments melt away.

We live and die just for today.

For our sobriety we all do pray,

Please, G-d Almighty, JUST ONE MORE DAY!
