What a Yom Kippur! I was 3 months clean on Yom Kippur 7 years ago but it didn't last. This year I was over 6 months clean (a lifetime record) and with GYE I think it will last, bezras Hashem, one day at a time.
81 days on the GYE chart.

It will last, it will last! If you lust, it won't last, but if you don't lust....it will surely last with Hashem's help.
Baby steps.
If the road is pulling you down, it's a sign that you are going uphill, so just press harder on the gas!

Have a great day - unless, of course, you made other plans.

I just realized that I objectify all women. The pretty ones are no chiddush, but when I see a fat or old woman and write her off as worthless I am also objectifying her. Fat women and old women are also people, I know some personally and they are real. Lots to learn.

What a busy thread. It actually takes 91 days to get on the chart. I am now on it for the second time in my life. Tomorrow will be 400 days on the chart in total, what a way to go into Shemini Atzeres. Thank you everyone in GYE. 96 days on the chart is my personal record and today is 208 days since I last was mz"l, also a record.


Wishing everyone in GYE a serene, sober, kosher and joyous Shemini Atzeres and Simchas Torah.

98 days on the WOH! My old record was 96 days. This is all due to the fellowship of GYE and SA and my TaPhSiC shevua. If I think about shmutz for more than 30 seconds, I have to go to Kever Rochel within 3 days.

of course 30 seconds is a decent chunk of time (for a thought) but i am sure that Reb BB is trying to make a realistic goal. saying i won't think about lust for even 5 seconds is doomed to failure. lichoirah
