As long as there aint no incomin' missiles flyin' thru the air

we can always duck!

and besides, the "80" is basically only a means to get from one chashuve place to another. Who lives off the "80"? Who remains on the "80"?

Just wanted to point out that if you travel on I-80, you will NOT be able to get from get from I-70 to I-90, they are parallel! In reality, you need to cross I-80 to get from 70 to 90. Please don't jaywalk.

All 2-digit, even numbered highways are east-west, and the odd numbers are north-south. Also, the round numbers are usually cross country highways.

If you wanted to get from the 70 to the 90 you could take, to name a few examples, I-55 (from St. Louie to Chicago), I-65 (from Indianapolis to Gary, Indiana), or I-75 (from Dayton, OH to Toledo, OH)

I should also point out that there is a long stretch (Most of the Indiana Toll Road and Ohio Turnpike) where the 80 and 90 are actually merged together into one road!


(The above contain deep yesodos related to our recovery. Maybe I should have put it in the Kabbalah thread.)

Kabbalah aint my thing, but if youre on da "70" and wish to go north with the "75," wouldn't you hit the "80" and then continue west, it will merge as 80/90?

perhaps I am incorrect.

Yeso"d is gematria 80. I.m not sure, is that a kabalistic term, or Brisk/Yeshivish?

עיין שם בספר גוגל מפס, ושם מבואר שבמתא טולידו אצל פגישת כביש 75 עם 90, הכבישות 80 ו90 הם בגדר "יחד כולם הודו" וזהו יסוד דזעיר אנפין

I succeeded in not taking the "second look" seven or eight times in a row! It is a good feeling. I actually never thought that I'd be able to let go even once or twice. It was so natural for me to take a second, third and fourth look at any woman who caught my attention. I am not saying this cheshbon is good for anybody; it might not even be good for me, but it is making me more aware of it, and it is inspiring me to chizuk. And as other wrote here many times, this is an important trigger to avoid.

and the continued update is we are still not updating chart. we shall see you at 90 on Yom Kippur.

Roy in the SA White Book noted that we frequently prayed and it did not work...because the best we could muster was begging G-d to "Please take it away, so I will not have to give it up!

Onto day 101! [Is there such a Highway?]

feels like years ago

lookin back at this thread, there were some posters who helped me in beginning, and I have not heard from them since...dor holech v'dor ba.

Be it what it may; I still here...truckin' on, or lately, limpin' on, but at least...still on da same road.

Scorecard....first one ended 74 for 100.
Second one started 6 for 6.

Just wanted to thank ya' all for all your words of chizuk, encouragement and all your gentle (and sometimes not so gentle) proddin'. Both are very good for me.

Thank you and may we all be zoche to a good kvittel, a year of success in all our worthy endeavors, shnah shelo tapil isha pri bitna, shana shel aliyah b'ruchniyos, shanah sheyereid geshem b'ito ubzmano, etc.

A gutten kvittel
A gutten Moed
A gutten Yom Tov

Ooops! I plead guilty.

Avrohom,

i am very happy for you. You are a real inspiration, another living proof that HaShem can do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. All we need to do is genuinely ask Him.

May He grant you, me and everyone else here another day of sobriety and sanity.

With respect and love

Chesky
