It's a record. This is Dov's shortest post. He didn't say anything, not even one word, he only quoted himself. If he would only quote someone else it would be even shorter and show some good 12 Step humility.
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!"

I just want to say, I KNEW this would happen.
So much for my humility... I need to work on this.

Well, the alternative to being caught here by someone in real life is being caught watching porn, at a strip club, or with a prositute, or with a neighbor's wife, or with a Puerto Rican cleaning woman.

So, the question really should be:

Would you rather be caught on GYE by someone in real life, or would you rather be caught in one of the abovementioned activities by someone in real life?

Just a little change of perspective.

...or being caught by your innocent 12 year old daughter walking into the room while you are watching naked people having loud sex on your computer while sitting with your pants open and busily masturbating yourself.

Kind of hard to explain to her, no?

It's going to happen, just a matter of time. Better start being 'much more careful' now.... :

How about if the only people recognizing you were guys who admit they were were just masturbating to pornography, cried about it, and said the tikkun klali for the seventeenth time last week just before they went and did it again - and really want to stop this time...?

Which includes, in some way, shape or form, everyone who can recognize you from this website.
In case that wasn't obvious...

Hatzlacha!

Then I would feel sympathetic and happy to let the guy know hes not alone and share whatever knowledge and resources I could give him

@ Meir- There are people that browse the forum out of pure curiosity Im sure

But they give up after a few posts- unless they're looking for triggers, in which case they are in the same boat. The fact is, you don't browse a forum on audio programming if you aren't at least an enthusiast. The people who are here and gone won't recognize you unless you give out too much identifying info in one post. That you should anyways avoid doing, as I just told RT.

I've learln't from my experience that people will respect me if I'm honest and tell them I have a yetzer horah and i'm trying to get help. Denying will not give you respect and no one will really beleive you. In todays world everyone is a suspect of sexaholism.

The fact that he recognized me, and APPROACHED me, means he's crying out for help.
So help him I will (try).
