A fall after 445 days in any other area wouldn't destroy you and wouldn't cause someone not to start again. For example if someone spoke lashon hora after 445 days of not doing so, although one would be upset, there would be no yi'ush. Here the yetzer hora puts in our minds to focus on the fall rather than sitting back and saying "look what I accomplished". V'taher, me thinks you should celebrate your incredible accomplishment with a good l'chaim!

To add to R' HM's beautiful words of chizuk : Many of us when we start working we are desperate even for a short period of time of being clean , say a week - and then we eventually get to a much longer time , yet when we fall after that we get tzebrochen - if only we could remember that desparation we felt  before we exceeded what we beleived we could do.

Whats an a amazing way to look at it! great chizuk!
I guess counting days has it's downside as it puts your mind to think that you gotta start it all over again...  still, the benefits outweigh it.

Is it better to talk to multiple people 

or to have 1 person to be accountable to ?

or maybe both??

I know it might seem kind of obvious but theres always differing opinions and experiences.

I think it's better to have quality rather than quantity - 1 person rather than a few. But make sure that the person you have has the following qualities:

C - Confession: Can you be open with them about your struggles?
H - Honest: Are they committed to honesty?
A - Accessible: Are they accessible? Can you call them at different times?
M - Maturing: Are they growing or not?
P - Plan: Do they help you come up with a workable plan to quit acting out?

My matzav really went downhill this week- I'm falling Badly,  I'm in  very negative spirits ,and the soton is wreaking havoc with my head and cheshbonos ...
Thats it. I gotta tighten my bootstraps and start over Iknow what I need to do for the most part , I also may need to change up aspects of my mehalech - that will mainly be determined by ideas I get from friends here.

The ikkur is to Keep on Trucking!! Whether it's mega or monstuh, mamish or moiredig.....Just keep on Trucking!!

Another point is to remember the "habitat" in which falls usually take place, isolation. Keeping in touch and honest with friends is one of the most helpful preventatives.

Another component which a fall feeds off of is being unproductive. Try and keep doing things, anything, that is productive.

Keep on trucking, just one more mile!! When you're there, give us a beep, we'll tell you what your next goal is (that is, if you can't guess yourself )

Sounds like you're keepin' connected. What's with the productivity? Went thru many of the posts on this thread now; have you read the handbook?

Cord's, 

Thanks for bumping my truck. Good post. I've been a little in isolation recently. Only doing well since I am too busy to fall, which isn't the greatest way to drive.
