On this board, everyone is encouraged to share their journey through the 18 tools of the GYE handbook and get Chizuk and answers from everyone else here as well!

The GYE handbook provides a systematic framework for breaking free of this addiction. But just reading it alone won’t do very much if we don’t “work” the tools therein. So after reading through the GYE handbook once, we go back and start again from the beginning, this time taking it slowly and giving each tool a lot of careful thought. Have we tried the first few tools yet? What parts have we still not tried? Do we have questions, comments, doubts about any of the tools? Slowly but surely, tool by tool, day by day, the GYE handbook - together with the group support of this board - will provide you with the best framework possible for systematic growth and progress.

Hello all.  I am still fairly new to GYE (about a week now).  I have taken my time to read through most of the pieces found here on the site, and have been talking to a few people within the chat room.  I have a question about the book, however.  Is it possible to find freedom without the GYE handbook and other suggested tools?  I find myself busy with Torah study and my place of employment and family.  Plus I am a slow reader.  I am not sure I can spare much extra time some days, and read fast enough.  So I am asking if the tools, ebooks, and articles are of a great benefit to the freedom I am seeking, or if sharing with the men may be enough.  Any responses are appreciated.

I've personally found the forum to be the most powerful tool- reading other people's stories and experiences, challenges, and successes, and seeing how they relate to me and trying them on for size.

However, for some people the handbook is very useful, so I guess you have to figure out if it's necessary for you.

On another note, not having the time is very understandable but we often find the time to get ourselves into this mess, so it probably makes sense to find the time to get out of it.

Very good point: we often find the time to get ourselves into this mess, so it probably makes sense to find the time to get out of it.
Thank you
