Yom Chamishi BL"N.
Hatzlacha!

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...

Do you mean an entire Yom each day or divided over the time you will be there?

Neither! I mean that only if I manage to stay clean, then after I leave the 'danger zone' as a reward for me, you will agree to say one yom of tehilim, just once!
Makes sense?

Dear Friends,

​Iv'e been thinking what sort of plan I can make for myself whilst I travel after Tisha B'av, as at the location I will be staying at, there is open access to unfiltered devices. I have always fallen there and in my formative years I spent hours watching porn there.

Monetary Kenosos have not worked for me there, even big ones. I would say that I'm in a better state now than in the past but I certainly have to make a plan.
I believe the knowledge of being held accountable by others will be a powerful motivation to resist an urge.

​I therefore want to make the following request:
If I manage to stay clean, I am looking for GYE Chaverim who will agree beforehand to take upon themselves to say one Yom of Tehilim (as a zechus for siyato dishmayo for me and all the special members of GYE) , in lieu of the fact that I managed to stay clean.
I believe, that if I know that by giving in to an urge i am giving up on the whole sefer tehilim being said because of me, i will Bez"H be able to resist.
I will be at this location untill  close to Elul. 
​I am looking for a minimum of 7 volunteers, that way Tehillim will be finished at least once.

If your interested, Please reply on this thread by writing the Yom of Tehilim you agree to take. Please go in order, i.e the first volunter takes Yom rishon e.t.c

​With tremendous thanks in advance for showing kidness to an anonymous friend trying to surf the waves out there.

With love
Excellence

I like how you started. 
But from your word therefore… It took a different twist than I would have thought. If you are looking for someone to PM on a specific day of the week I think that is a nice idea and I am all in!!

I'll take Yom Shishi. I'm glad to be part of such a holy idea.

No words to thank you all. I daven to be able not to c"v let you all down. I will be entering the above mentioned location tomorrow Bez"H. 
Looking forward to making you all proud when I leave that location beginning of Elul Bez"H.

If anyone else would like to join, feel free. Probably won't finish another sefer, but the more people involved the more accountability.

Have a wonderfull day,
Excellence

Dear Chaverim, Tzadikim, Yedidim,

B.H Youv'e all started me up on a real good note. I'm very motivated, and at the moment not even interested in all the sick dirt out there!
It's thanks to you all, and there is no question about it that without GYE I would be having crazy urges right now.
I daven it should stay this way and that I should sail through this Tekufa smoothly.

Just want to wish you all A gut Shabbos,
Love Excellence
