Did you consider surrendering it instead of fighting it.

i'm lusting right now like crazy noones around and i have at least three different ways to feed my addiction 

for starters i left a message by my mentor later he'll check up on me so i'd better not fall (he reads my thread too)
additionally i'm posting here that 1. takes time (time not spent acting out) 2. it'll help me feel good when i pull through

that's how i plan on overcoming this nisayon hatzlacha

I'd pray pray and pray again.... God could and would if He is sought!!!!

Keep strong brother

You definitely can call me. It's so funny because I don't remember anyone actually calling me unless we privately emailed or texted each other beforehand. GrowStrong might be the only one actually.
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

The million dollar question!
Here is my 2c.
You read the Big Book... then read is slower.
After a third reading you can listen to Joe and Charlie.

Here is a dollars worth I got from a close friend but its harder to comprehend without having a feeling of the definition.
You give the the title belt to Lust. Then return the crown to God.
Then you stand outside the Ring and see if you can help the next hopeless contender. (skipped 8 steps but thats the drift)

Now compare the elation of passing to the deep-seated depression that always eventually accompanies a fall.

The difference is immeasurable.

Mike, super! By the way reading the book, forums, chizuk emails etc., or knowing that you will need to post the outcome,helps by giving us the ability when a nisayon comes to stop for a second and think. That second makes a world of a difference. You are training yourself well with Hashem's help. Continued hatzlocha.
