Back on the Wall for the umpteenth time with 106 GYE clean days.

As for SA, today is 2,510 days which are 358 weeks and 4 days of being sober. I am not a sexaholic but I could not have done that without going to meetings for a few months in 2011 to share and meet other people.

HHmmm.... Interestin'.

I don't think it's that interesting. Our SA Definition is that we admit anyone who admits they themselves have lust problems and say they want to be free of them. As far as I know, the official SA Definition that we read at the beginning of each meeting says nothing about each person needing to admit that they're addicts.

Besides, I've met in person with this man who who calls himself 'Blind Beggar' here. And he's a sincere, geshmake guy who has obviously come a long way since he stumbled onto GYE. I'm happy that he made use of SA!
Admin put these lines here cuz he likes 'em:
"The heart needs to be broken when will-power is not enough"
"Get off the 18-Wheeler and onto a tricycle!"
"The heck with me, what can I do for you?"
"I do not particularly care exactly which "lav" suicide is. I'm not interested in it for other reasons!"

It was a pleasure to meet you, Reb Dov. You are a very sincere and geshmake Yid.

In our meetings we would go around the circle and everyone would say "I am Ploni and I am a sexaholic" which means an addict. I don't know if it was compulsory.
The Blind Beggar is a character in Rebbe Nachman's story of the Seven Beggars.
If I view a woman as an object, I am powerless over lust, but I don't have to look.
I can guard my eyes.
I want to guard my eyes.
I do guard my eyes.
Why do I say these four lines?
