I already posted this elsewhere, but felt that it deserved its own thread:

Don't fall on a whim.  I'll say it again: Don't fall on a whim.  Falling is too painful to do just like that.  If a person, c"v, feels like he must fall, he should, at least, think it through.  Write down 10 reasons you don't want to fall.  Then write down 10 reasons you do want to fall (if you can come up with that many).  Then take the matter "under advisement," and don't issue a decision before tomorrow.  
Just as an alcoholic needs to avoid that first sip, a lust addict needs to avoid that first slip.Slip today? No way! ;)Fall today? No way, Jose'!

I'm honored, R. Guard, but . . . are you sure you're not just saying that on a whim?  :D ;D

Am I the only one who has no clue what the Heiliger Guard means by that?
