Matching Donor - Please Help!
 
For the last few years, the same donor offers GuardYourEyes a $5K matching challenge. Tomorrow is the last day of his 5-day challenge for this year - and we're not there yet.
 

An entrepreneurial investor has offered us a challenge once again. He has committed to donate $5,000 to GuardYourEyes on condition that we raise $5,000 to match it within 5 days (by Friday July 22). If we don't, we lose the opportunity and his commitment. Please help us reach this challenge. It would be a big help to GYE.

PLEASE DONATE HERE

Every dollar you donate is worth twice as much!

Tizke Lemitzvos! May the zechus of your donation be a merit to help you in your quest for purity, Midah Kineged Midah, by helping us help others.

You've Surely Gained a Lot
 
Dov writes to someone who has been having ups and downs on our forum for already a year, and wants to give up:
 
By Dov

Many, many folks I know had to go through a long period of time where they had ups and downs and struggled, lost and won. Nu. We are each an olam malei (a complete world) and it feels like everything, inside. It's hard to see how lucky we are even when we are not sober.

Having a deeper awareness of:

  • Hashem's presence with you,
  • of your own frailty,
  • of your own gifts and value, and
  • of the beauty in other people...

... surely in your time here you have gotten some of all those.

Ashrecha. Don't give up on yourself ever, and the best is yet to be seen.

For what it's worth that's a promise, from one addict to another :-)

Do you think you may have a porn addiction?
 

Do you have a problem with obsessive and compulsive porn use? Have you seriously tried the tools on GYE and feel that you are not getting better? Maybe it’s time to consider joining a 12-Step program.

Porn Anonymous (PA)
If you’re compulsively acting-out with pornography and masturbation we suggest you explore joining Porn Anonymous (PA). If you need help deciding whether to join PA, call Michael at 347-699-2368, or email help@pornanonymous.org to schedule a time to talk. For more information visit pornanonymous.org (Hebrew: p-a.org.il / Yiddish: pa-yid.org).

Sexaholics Anonymous (SA)
If your compulsive acting-out has progressed beyond the screen (with other people, paid sexual services, etc.) we suggest you explore joining Sexaholics Anonymous (SA). To figure out if SA is for you, call Dov at 917-414-8205, or email Dov at dov@guardyoureyes.org to schedule a time to talk. For more information visit www.sa.org.
