Also the website has me as an "expert boarder" which is weird because the only thing I feel like an expert in is not being and expert

OK so I had a major slip a few minutes ago 
I went on to a website on my moms iPad (still not filtered gonna work on that today) that I knew sometimes popped up a link to bad sites and I clicked on it and got a bit carried away but I managed to re-gain my balance and not fall
from now on if I go on to a site that I know has links like that or even worse go on Any site with the intention of finding links I'm gonna consider that a fall- thoughts ?

Best is not to let ourselves get bogged down by our "post counts", and "boarder status" (I hope that goes without saying...).  But if you're having trouble we could bring your Karma down a few points to even things out if that would help

My idea - only if it excites you

until your mothers device is filtered, install the "goodbye device calendar" app; meaning accept to pay GYE $2 each time you logon the device, any time of the day (unless you come first and discuss it with your friends right here)

What do you think

Great Trucker!

Put cords joke after these words of yours

"had a major slip a few minutes ago... got a bit carried away but I managed to re-gain my balance and not fall"

Btw singing in the shower helps alot too - to keep your balance

Have a gut Shabbos

Day 13 had a great "safer" shabbos 

phone Numbers anyone - I'd really appreciate being able to phone some on the hard days (even the not hard days )  who can relate to me seeing as I'm in yeshivah and can't post

Day 1 so I had a fall last night 
buut I'm NOT back down to day one because I am not back where I was never before did I have 13 days of soberity behind me (if it sounds like I'm trying to convince myself it's because I am i find it really hard to keep a positive mindset after a fall)
anyways there was a loophole in my filter that i will fix ASAP 
I haven't had a conversation with myself for a while but last night Oh boy there were a thousand voices in my head telling me "nah you didn't really have a fall you're going to be so embarrassed if you tell everyone you had a fall ETC...."
but I ignored them brewed some honestea and here I am 
thoughts?
markz I really appreciate the thought but I think I'd be to intimidated to speak to cordnoy or dov

Is there anyone you feel safe to talk to in your neighborhood that could serve as a coach for you?

Or a local softspoken kindhearted rebbi that can be a shoulder for you, even only once a month

Im not asking if you're comfortable doing this.
