Even "just looking'' hurts your family - and is very hard for them to recover and forgive

You are damaging your relationship with Hashem, and losing your קרבה.

When getting emotionaly very connected to hashem (ex: yom kippur by ne'ilah) one can feel like a son to hashem wanting to b close to him and do only what he wants for no reason at all, just for being accepted and loved by Him. It is then that we can make a real commitment never to fall again. This commitment by me lasts for a few months...eventually the addiction will pull me back down...and the struggle goes on...

And then it was worth a few months. What works, works. No one says no to $200 for one hour's work, even though at the end of that hour there's no more money earning.

and really thats not a Schar at all, because the act itself is full of remorse and regreatfullness. (if we understood this we would have not been adicted at all but of course thats what the Y.H. makes us belief)

I came across a quote in a book called "Out of the shadows" by Patrick Carnes….that said that sexual addiction is like "Athletes foot of the mind"

I think this is a helpful description


1. Like athletes foot it returns everyone in a while
2. Like athletes foot it is hard to get rid of, ugly and pesky.
3. Like athletes foot it gets better if you keep it clean and don't mess with it
4. Like athletes foot it is definitely beatable
5. Unlike athletes foot it very important to get rid of it.

The ONLY way to get rid of this is to keep away from the things that irritate it.

One thing is for sure. If you want to make things worse: act out.
