Q & A
 
The Magnitude and Root-Causes of Today’s Kedusha Crisis
 
Part 10/12
 
What is the magnitude of the problems that have arisen as a result of digital technology, and how can we address the core roots that lead to these problems?
 
By Yaakov from GYE

Continuation of GYE's Response:

Regarding the progression that you mentioned, of how addiction develops from being "at risk" to full blown addiction, in 2010 we made this iceberg diagram below to bring this point out in a more graphic way.

The tip-of-the-iceberg depicts the point at which we end up hearing about the problems in our communities, but of course the issue starts way, way deeper...

What helped me reach 90 days?

Dear Guard Your Eyes Team,

First of all, thank you very much for everything you do and did for me and for the whole of Klal Yisroel.

Here's in short what helped me most:

  • In the beginning, I used to update my Chart daily - that was basically the highlight of getting another day on the chart - but over time I began to update every few days and this seemed to work. Now, I try to update every week or so.
  • I also have the full support of my wife. Very interestingly, it happened on my 91st day that she said to me that my radiance has changed over the past couple of days, as I started smiling more for no apparent reason.
  • I also go to a therapist who is doing a great job getting all the secrets out of me.
  • I wrote on the forum every so often to update my progress, and now I use the forum quite actively - and also our private hangout group.

Hazloche Rabba in all you do!
