B"H still doing well and staying in the zone.

Been dealing with HALT (hungry, tired, overwhelmed, etc.) lately between crazy busy at work (b"H!) and preparing for Pesach, and I've been feeling pretty stretched. I had some moments today where I had the urge to escape in the "comfy" world of taiva and did peek at a couple of very benign things. Nothing close to a slip or fall, but it's what starts the ball rolling in that direction and it's a breach of my commitment to not go anywhere on my computer that I wouldn't want my wife to see. (It doesn't have to be anything that intense to fall in that category).

So, I am strengthening my commitment to bl"n not go anywhere on my computer that I wouldn't want my wife to see and will check in on my thread here tomorrow regarding this commitment specifically.

B”H had a great day today and was able to stick to my commitment.

I just want to leave off that I feel ready to go into Pesach in the right frame of mind and way of living. Regardless of my exact current streak, I truly feel that I have become a different person since joining GYE a few years ago and have developed a healthier relationship with these taivos and a belief in myself that I can live the life I want to live. (I used to feel that I would never be able to break free.) Yes, this is a lifelong battle, but b”H I feel that I now have the resources, tools, and confidence to continue fighting.

Thank you Hashem and GYE for my own personal yetzias mitzrayim, and may we all be zoiche to the ultimate geula when all these struggles become a thing of the past!

Chag Kosher Vsameach,

Determinedtowin

Thanks for checking in. I'm still alive b"H

It's been busy and up and down since Pesach.
I realized that I could block google completely which leaves me with a true whitelist now b"H. I'm hoping that, now that I'm no longer sitting in a matzav of yichud all the time, I will have an easier time against the y"h.

I did the same thing and worked wonders for me saved me from falling so many times
Think about how good you'll feel if you say no to desire and compare that to how bad you'll feel if you say yes.

Desire is unique in the way that it is never fulfilled -  if you give in the desire comes back even more powerful in just a few days. Telling yourself that its ok because this is really the last time doesn't work because you are just adding new images to your head that will cause future falls.

The Joy of triumph over the yetzer hara is worth the effort it takes to win. It IS worth it! Keep fighting!
