Congratulations, Grant!
You've been a big help to me by guiding me to focus on motivation instead of counting days. I'm glad to see you succeed too. May your success continue!

Just my Hargasha. Maybe I am totally off base.
Either way you have been a huge source of Chizuk and inspiration.
Keep it up.

May you have much hatzlocha from now!

Thank you everyone for all the congratulations and blessings! 

I feel like a little kid on his long awaited birthday. I don't want my 90th day to end. It was so much fun being the birthday boy! But the only way to reach 180 days, is by moving on to day 91. 180, here I come!

Thank you all!

What's with the blank post? Is my filter blocking something?

I pasted an image but I see it's a link that's probably blocked. I'll fix it soon.

EDIT: I had to put it in as an attachment. For some reason embedding images in posts no longer works...

Grant!!
Wow!!
Mazel Tov!!

90 days is no small feat.
What can I say?
90 days of tremendous effort. 
90 days of tremendous Siyata Dishmaya.
90 days of continuous growth.

Just remember, 90 days is not the end. It’s the just the beginning of your days as a free man.


May Hashem give you the continued siyata dishmaya to keep it up.

BH I reached 180 days 2 days ago!
I never since i was 11 dreamt that i will be able to go this long without m*. Its not possible that i did...., 
The reason im posting it here is because i can say with certainty that the biggest 'geder' i did (Except strong filters and other life saving necessities) is to stop watching Goyishe movies! I was not able to move forward as long as i didn't stop, It was very hard. and i miss movies like crazy, but that's the price i have to pay for now.

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing! 

Yes, initially it almost seems inessential, like a small drop in the bucket. It feels like an ineffective minuscule step in a much larger and more potent picture. But as time goes on it becomes clear that it's a constant stimulant, keeping lust alive and kicking at the forefront, eventually causing us to act out in a much more depraved manner.

It's hard. It's so tempting to go back. It seems so innocent, yet it's clear what's hidden behind the facade of lighthearted entertainment. 

It's something I too struggle with every single day, yet a fight I hope never to lose.

Recently I've been having thoughts about taking another peek at a regular movie. Obviously a completely clean one. But you just made it clear that that's foolishness speaking. Thank you R' Chancy for the reminder! 

                                  Grant 

Disclaimer: I do still watch light usually shorter things (like a family TV episode) when someone is watching with me. For some reason it changes the whole experience and I don't find myself lusting like in the ol' days. Should I stop that too? Maybe, maybe not.

The only thing i can possibly think of being non triggering is cartoons.....

But i made a commitment not to watch and i have to keep the borders clearly visible!



Thank you Harav Reb Grant Shlita!

Mazel tov!  Very important post. Keeping the door open a crack eventually lets in the monster.
