Guard Your Eyes - Forum Kunena Site Syndication Mon, 18 Nov 2019 09:05:01 +0000 Kunena 1.6 Guard Your Eyes - Forum en-gb Subject: i've had enough - by: nbjo most of these years i didn't have constant access to the internet, but now i do so the situation got worse.
about 8 months ago i had enough and i joined GYE. i started the 90 day challenge - and made it to 60 days before falling. since then i didn't have a single clean week.
so i'm trying again now, and (even though i'm too shy to be doing this) i'm going to try to post on the forum often (hopefully).

so, here goes...

P.S. yes, i know my user name is just a jumble of letters - at the time i didn't have a better idea...

Subject: A two-way street - by: A Good Jew
So B"H I'm now at eight clean days, but I noticed that I'm losing interest in things I enjoy doing and household responsibilities. I'm retired, so I have more time to help my wife, and also learn more Torah and pursue other interests. But over the last few days I seem to just want to sit around and be lazy.

I'm thinking it may be withdrawal symptoms from all the TV shows I had been wasting time with (one of my biggie addictions since childhood). So I decided that the only way to beat this and avoid a fall, is to force myself into action and ignore the YH's efforts to trip me up,

I figure, if the YH has the energy to do his thing, I also have the energy to do mine! And so I begin. Wish me hatzlacha!]]>

Subject: Want to stop videogames and other time killers - by: grandir55
First, sorry for my bad english...

I am searching a way to quit my habit of time killing...

I explain myself :
At work as a computer engineer, I feel often lazy (no project to do or simply lazy of working). I spend my day in playing video games, watching youtube videos, reading pointless news (sometimes, it leads me to p' contents, but it is rare). I can spend my whole day in doing nothing !

This habit of escaping real world has a bad effect to my mind and even to my family. My wife feels I am not involved in my family...
I also study Torah every evening during almost 1 hour but I don't feel involved in it.

This addiction to video games (and other stuff) follow me for more than 15 years and I haven't found a way to quit it.

Do you have any idea to help me ?]]>

I Want to move forward being honest with myself and beat this addiction day  by day.

Subject: B"H for this site! - by: A Good Jew  Shalom, fellow GYErs
  I've been davening for a way to  beat my addiction to watching old TV series on the Internet for years now. I tired many different methods, both alone and with help form others, but I would always come back to it.
  The thing that's got me worried is that it doesn't matter how much pritzus the shows have (it used to bother me more than it does now). So I started praying harder, and B"H, He sent me a way via an e-mail from a relative about GYE.
  And here I am. I'm determined to see this succeed; I've already deleted the TV site bookmarks from my browser.
 May we all be matzliach in breaking our addictions!]]>
