I don't get the question. kol sheken, the issue in that case is not the release but the lusting. 

According to what you wrote, lusting will help the emotions....just not the release (as the release will not help you).

here goes. after spending all day on the site, i downloaded k9 filter for my laptop. (my office has a filter and my phone has the browser blocked and my wife has the code)
i now signed up for the 90 days. I hope it is not to soon, but I think i can do it. i think that all the support everyone gets and gives around here might be enough.
i have nothing to lose i guess (I really want this to work) and I am feeling very optimistic. and having all my new friends know what is going on with me will probably be great for me.
Does anybody think I am making a mistake and going to fast?
Can there be a downside?

Nope.
 notI fast at all.

Congrats on hittin' 1,000 - If numbers mean anythin' toI you.

You are truly an inspiration.

.......
It's been a crazy few weeks. alot of stuff going on in my life. I have been staying in touch through emails with some of the guys and received the emails following up on the forum discussions so that has kept me connected.
In previous times, such a difficult few weeks would have definately called for escaping through acting out. Thanks to all that i have gained by hanging out here, i was able to find other escapes and managed to stay clean without too much hardships.
..........
Getting myself back into a schedule again. I have fallen out of learning every day. sort of lost control of my life, but starting to put back the pieces now that life had calmed down a bit. I am happy that i managed to stay clean. and that to me is more important at this stage than all the other things.
I am amazed that so much time has passed since i joined GYE, it has been 5 months and i am a completely different person than i was then.
.........

I happened to come across this old post of mine.

"It's been a crazy few weeks. alot of stuff going on in my life."


Yup. it's true again. But it is amazing to look back and see the difference this time around. I have healthy ways of giving myseld down time. I have been able to keep to my schedule more or less, especially my learning schedules. And definitely have been doing alot of healthy accomplishment in everything that is going on. 

I am amazed that so much time has passed since i joined GYE, it has been 5 months and i am a completely different person than i was then.


Now it's been almost three years and I am a completely different person than I was then.
Thanks to all of you. Especially.......(you know who you are, although many of you are no longer around. DD, Lavi, Yankel, Ineedchizzuk and others, where did you all go to?)

If you work it.
What works for me: 1) Honesty 2) Meetings 3) 12-step 4) Listening to my Sponsor 5) Not doing what I want to do 6) Inviting the God of my understanding into my life
