some quick hitters:

1. day 80 second time
2. not sure 100 % why im a bit awol
3. some have made suggestions
4. I am workin' with some people on "not fallin'"
5. it is now 200 days without bad sights....that is after thousands days of lustin' ...perhaps with some breaks in between.... my goodness; those coals will be damn hot!
6. ksa"hm has been a good thing for me...not perfect in it yet, but tryin' every night
7. I thought I knew why I went awol a bit, but im not sure any longer...I know I am a bit calmer because of it
8. hatzlachah to us all!!!

That's fine. So long as TODAY we stay clean. One day at a time!

I thought we had given up calculating the temperature of hell! Didn't we agree to leave that to G-d.

But if you want my opinion, I definitely think that the 200 days, are going to get you some very sweet Gan Eden.

But lets forget it. The main thing is that we stay clean and connected to G-d TODAY.

I had given up, but when I wrote thousands, and during this ongoing process of sliding, 'hot coals' is what I thought of
