Oh, you know, i was discussing that with someone recently. In the winter you sometimes feel the lack of 'heat'. So you try to fill it in by another type of heat. In the winter there's not so much sunshine. It's cold, it's depressing. Missing the summer colours. It's dark much longer. The nights are very long. Etc.

Good point LM. I think IT was referring to something else, though, in the way that women can sometimes dress as triggers despite the fact that they've gotta be freezing!

And yeah, IT - I think Aish should use that as proof for God's existence!

I found something out today if you TRY NOT to look around, it really helps. Get lost in your thoughts while walking and it really helped.

Absolutely - R' Kelemen discusses that in one of his shiurim.

The ideal is if you have some torah to think over on your head while you walk...

OK, sci, our plan is nearly complete. He'll come to us at his weakest moment, and by offering him our help, he'll be under our control forever! BWAHAHAHAHAHA

The best thing is we are here for each other.  But I have to say a walker and a fighterjet is great thoughts, to keep other thoughts away!!!!

Have a great shabbos!

Just wanted to say that I don't really focus that much on my 90 day count. But it's a great way to keep track of how far I've come.

But I just hit 40 days, and that just seems like a nice big even number, which makes me smile - so I'm going to take this opportunity to thank all of you for helping me do this - being clean, completely clean, which is something I never imagined I could do!

40!
woohoo!
40's a good number.
it's the number of days and nights it rained for during the mabul...
number of days moshe was on har sinai each time...
number of years klal yisroel were in the midbar...

and each of those occurrence led to a major change...
may these past 40 days be the key to a major change for you
the key to freedom!


GSBG!

Amen!

I'm going, I'm gong - slow and steady, especially since IT25 took the engine from my jet fighter and hooked it up to his walker...so now I'm in my jet, moving at walker speeds  :D :D

Slow and steady...
