Day 4 
hi all  I had a major slip today 
went to shul right after lunch but I wasn't thinking and it was three hours before mincha and the place was empty
my main lifeline that stopped me from actually falling was probably the fact that I knew I'd have to start again on the 90 day count

Glad to hear you didn't fall.
Do you have any tools you're working with or are you simply going to "hold your breath" for 90 days? 
Feel free to email me at BenTorah.BaalHabayis@gmail.com

1 day may be too long for me, but I take it OWAAT = One wave at a time, cause the lust comes and goes like a wave which rises and crashes.

You were gonna fall in shul?
I understand the possibility, just wanted to make sure I followed the post.

Aryeh,
Good for you! Do you feel at ease and relaxed in your new found purity or do you feel a constant strain and battle to stay clean?
If the latter, how long do you think you can keep it up? There are things you can do that will relieve you of what we call here "white knuckling" and make your life serene and peaceful without feeling the constant struggle.
Just ask and we will all be happy to share with you.

Aryeh,

Wishing you hatzlacha! Keep at it! We are here! I can identify all to well with the falling in a shul washroom situation. All the time saying to myself "I can believe I am doing this in a shul. whats wrong with me?!!" Well, I dont ask myself whats wrong with me. I know whats wrong with me. Just trying to stay "right" for today. I wish you strength & clarity.

day 2 
so here's the promised update although it's a day late as taanis Esther and Purim were crazy 
so after my longest streak of 6 days I had a fall
i had a major stomach ache and went to the washroom probably 20 times that day 
altgough i was sorely tempted I held my self back until the last time I couldn't anymore and fell 
my main problem/obstacle right now seems to be the washroom I'm not going there to act out but once I'm there...... It's not really a situation I can avoid any ideas/thoughts?
