those of you who read my first (and only) thread know that i am b"h not attracted to porn or masturbation.

yesterday night suddenly, out of nowhere i got this big temptation to watch indecent pictures. i prayed hard and HaShem protected me. This morning again, seemingly out of nowhere, this desire (and worse ones) almost overwhelm me. And then, also seemingly out of nowhere, i felt like every letter of every word of every post i read on this forum stood up to protect me from doing something i would have deeply regretted! I know it sounds weird, but that's what it felt like. I remembered all your struggles, pains, falls, successes, chizuk, and the desire just left me, b"H!

So i wanted to again thank all of you for sharing and posting. Please continue, you can mamesh save someone's life. You can not only help those who fell, but prevent someone who has nothing to do with p-rn to even touch it in the first place!!!

it's a little embarrassing to share that, and i did hesitate, but it would have been very unfair to withhold it.
