Took care of it boruch Hashem!

Still licking my wounds but I'm still clean baruch Hashem.

Huge deal for me that I had the strength to get this taken care of.

Thank you Hashem for guarding me and answering my tefilos, I was really able to see the yad Hashem protecting me.

They say over from the Ba'al Shem Tov that before Hashem gives us something special, we are tested with a test of ka'as or taivah. This fits really nicely with what just happens as I am Iy"H making a bris soon, Hashem tested me with this huge test and I really hope I passed. Not perfect but much better than the old me, that's for sure.

Thanks guys for being there for me.

This was a huge nisayon for me, I literally had everything open and at my fingertips. 

The truth is that I did take a little peek and I didn't pass with flying colors. My Yetzer Harah is telling be that I am a failure and that I failed this test because I wasn't strong enough to resist taking a peek.

Therefore, I am coming here now to celebrate my victory! In every battle there are casualties. Even though I suffered some losses I think that I won this one overall.

So feel free to join me. As usual, I make my l'chaim on beer. Today it's going to be some IPA, and a Belgian Tripel. Maybe I'll ever have some Scotch in honor of the occasion. 

Oh, and I today I am up to 333 "cumulative clean days" which is a pretty cool number too, so doubles of everything I guess.

L'chaim!

L'chaim! BH you pulled through even though it was a challenge. But a bigger l'chaim is for the fact that you are comfortable celebrating even though you did not immediately fix the problem. Perfectionists like me had to learn to be able to do that.

To put it simply: You are normal. Normal people are not perfect. And more important - people who need to be perfect, fall on their faces. Like me for many years.

L'chaim! Keep being normal!

Huge L'chaim to Hashem Help Me who just passed 1500 days!
Personally, I think that calls for single malt...

I am BEZH 17 days away and daydreaming of a celebration.
(I have been mesayem shas bavli and believe me, this was way harder)

Does the oilam have some hard core ideas that do not violate halacha / kedoshim tihiyu etc.

Oh, and no mussar please : )

With anticipation (and perhaps a tad too much pride) from Grodno ~ IMG

I was taught that when giving a gift,planning a party etc you shouldn't do what you want to get but try to think what the other person would want...
We don't know you well enough so u gotta drop some hints!

Celebrate by going out with your wife. If she asks why, say "just because i love you"

I could not agree more with that idea!
It is nice to celebrate with us but we're just the backdrop to your real life. A nice and important backdrop but just here as a means to the end. Sorry if that sounds mussary! I am really talking to myself on that one.
I can't wait to share a Lchaim with you in 17 days! Oh by the way I don't drink so my cup will be (diet) soda.

I remeber when a chaver here hit 1,000 days. It was sad that he couldn't share this incredible accomplishment with his wife (as is the case with many guys here). But at least he could share a happy moment with his wife - even if she didn't know why he was so happy.  Of course if any of us ever meet IMG or anyone else for that matter, it would be exciting and uplifting (and probably surprising - invariably people don't end up being the picture we conjure up about them based on voice etc.). And maybe there would even be a bear hug. However, celebration has to be part of real life, so unless we become good friends for the long term, let him celebrate with someone that iyh he will have many happy years together with.
