Objective:
Arrive to the goal of recognizing that sex is optional.
Is it really optional? That is subjective.
Does optional mean multiple options? That is uncollaborated.

Try to get to your goal in the shortest possible way. Scrolling through long posts, might cause me to use some adjectives.

And just for the record to correct all those Teachers, repeating something over and over is a sign of insanity.

Your last line of your code is "living life is not optional", there is an error in that code. That line evaluates to true, both if the statements are true or false. It is irrelevant wether sex is optional or not. You can still live life, when sex is mandatory.

Just kidding, keep on posting!

I was driving on the highways and byways my usual speed today, dodging traffic and hitting the max speed (A few miles above the limit but below cop-siren ticketing - there is a formula that Truckers use), and I know Rabbi Twersky talks about speeding...

And then it struck me... (No not the guardrail)

Why do I speed? Because I want/need to get to a destination and do something constructive there.

In other words, there's no real fulfillment in the present situation (sitting in traffic... or behind another car crawling at 75mph... beep beep move over).

I believe someone that's living what Rabbi Twersky calls a 'spiritual' life, could be more present, and therefore more relaxed too, especially if I have a nice Torah Class playing to pass my time...

It's a pipe dream.

Here's a secret... I got home and I'm still running around (Not at 95mph - I'm not a teenager anymore ;-(.

So I guess, "Living life starts at home" b4 we hit the road / start trucking!

I'm putting a bigger focus on life with inspiration from Rabbi Twersky who should be well, and it's a lifetime's work

One of the old time 12 steppers here shared what he's doing to get out of lusting and he listed for example
1. Helping the wife
2. Compiling his Gemara Shiur...

Im like "what has that to do with 12 steps? He must be drunk"
None of what he mentioned was anywhere in the white book

The answer is that our/my problem is not lust, but how to be "Living life to the MArX"

Any form of escape from life is escape, and את חטאי אני מזכיר היום בפרהסיא, escaping to post 30 posts a day with just-havin-fun was for me another form of escape from life.

Q: "Oh but you're a Tzadik, b/c you're posting and not masturbating now"
A: If life doesn't mean much and the only concern is if you masturbated today, please disregard this post

KOL!

This is something that I realized a while ago, and it is something that I realized needs more then just realization.

Often unhealthy compulsive behaviors come from something that is hurting in one’s life or something empty in one’s life. But, often people focus more on the reverse: how these behaviors are hurting or emptying their life. So, they try to stop doing those behaviors. But the thing is that life is still hurting even after stopping these behaviors for some time. An easy way to attempt to make their lives hurt less and fuller is to focus on the fact that they aren’t doing those behaviors. The problem is that this never changes the original reason why life was hurting in the first place. In other words, ‘not acting out’ is an easy excuse for not addressing sufficiently what needs to be addressed.

I would add that people try different things to stop these behaviors, and those things themselves might be coming from the same unhealthy sources to the behaviors themselves. Are these things addressing those sources, or are they just attempting to gratify them in the similarly unhealthy way the unhealthy behaviors tried to do? They might not seem unhealthy, and they might be deemed “good” or “necessary” because they are helping prevent doing the unhealthy behaviors. But little is being done if the sources of the unhealthy behaviors are just expressing themselves in a different way. 

Take my logic for example:

1.      Acting out sexually is not good for me.

2.      So, I try to find ways to stop acting out sexually.

3.      Something like GYE seems to be “a good way to stop acting out”.

4.       So, GYE is good for me.

Yes. Thank you. I know. My logic seems brilliant. But, I realized that it isn’t so simple. Not only is there the possibility that I became too dependent on GYE, GYE became in a way the continuance of the unhealthy tendencies that I believe were related to my acting out in the first place. Not that I intended for this to happen, but it did (and is something that I’m still nervous about) because I’m human.

Btw, where’s your source of inspiration from R Twersky coming from? One of his books?
Hope all is well
