it lost its head so you need pirush harosh.

Now tell me - serious!
Can you explain if acting out is done with pirush rashi. If not, a cockroach can stop someone from acting out - פארשטיי?

Please explain that one. How is that a reason to say, "NO"?

probably because he knows where the first ounce of lust will lead to. Many people express this....we will just do this because it feels good and we are in control that it will not go further. One who knows he is powerless, and really knows, not simply lip service, realizes where that first nibble will bring him.

That was a response to the post above it. I am still not in control nor will I ever be. It is not a reason to say "NO" to acting out. In fact saying "NO" will not keep me sober. Being that I have a disease, I need more than just a two-letter word. I need a three-letter word: God. (Oh and also some choice four-letter words come in handy).

I don't think that saying "NO" keeps ANYONE sober...
But, it helps remind us of why we want to put in the necessary time and energy for actions of recovery.
