Hi,
Welcome to GYE. Would you like to share a little about yourself, or maybe start your own thread (only if you're comfortable). 
Much Hatzlacha on your journey

You came to the right place! You will find support and helpful ideas here.

It's so great that you haven't given up hope. It's so easy to when you feel so overwhelmed and out of control, but I'm telling you from my own experiences and the experiences of thousands of people here that you can regain control.

My best tip is to view every single time you hold back as a thrilling achievement (as if you finished a masechta) rather than as a streak of clean days that you haven't messed up on. And don't get too down from a fall. Focus on your accomplishments.

(If you need help changing your perspective, check these out: 1. The Battle of the Generation:https://guardyoureyes.com/ebooks/item/the-battle-of-the-generation. 2. The Fight by Rabbi Ben Zion Shafier: https://theshmuz.com/series/the-fight/.)
In the place where ba’alei teshuva stand, even pure tzaddikim who never sinned cannot stand. (Rabbi Avohu, Brachos 34b)

Great free resources:
My favorite book for breaking free: The Battle of the Generation https://guardyoureyes.com/ebooks/item/the-battle-of-the-generation. Change your attitude and change your life!

Clear and to the point! There will be ups and downs. Just go with it. If you find you are questioning yourself and unsure of where to go next, just remember that there are people here that can answer your questions and that davening always helps!

Welcome to GYE.  I suggest that you start your own thread so you, as well as the rest of us, can track your progress.  As Bego stated, there will be many ups and downs, but don't give up hope and I"H you will get past this challenge.

Hello everyone. This is my second try now. The first time I didn't post at all but I made it to 90 days. After that I found it much harder and I didn't keep it up. Now I am back after a long time of not really trying. I thought I should post on the forum this time for some extra encouragement.

Welcome back! Posting is a great idea. Why don't you start a new thread- just press new topic, and share your story, struggles and successes.
