That's more than A Million 200 thousand seconds. Which means over a million 200,000 great accomplishments. And for each one you are zocheh to the Ohr Haganuz which no Malach can fathom!

                                                              KEEP GOING!  CHAZAK VE'EMATZ!!!

I posted the mekoros for this a few months ago. You're right that it's really even more; it's actually each regah which the Gemoroh says is much less than a second! Thanks for the correction! :D

The Gemoro in brechos 7b writes that there are 58,888 Regoim in an hour. which adds up to the following.

16.36          Regaim per second
981.47        Regaim per minute
58,888        Regaim per hour
1,413,312    Regaim per Day
9,893,184    Regaim per week
14,133,120  Regaim per 10 days
41,692,704  Regaim per month

Wow how rich did we get through our effort.

Today marks 4 weeks which is a life record for me.  Although I find it harder as time passes I am in this for the long haul. I find an internal conflict saying "No you cant do it !" and the other side of me saying "Yes you can !" I don't know what it is inside telling me that I can do it because I have never had that before. Maybe its the chizuk I get reading other peoples stories? or the daily chizuk from the emails ? Either case I am much happier with myself as a person and as an oved hashem.

You can do it! A human being is capable of almost ANYTHING he puts his mind to.

Whenever you feel doubts, read again the thread of your original post over here.

Today is 5 weeks- the longest I have ever gone. Recently, its been getting alot harder-I have "dirty" thoughts from the all of garbage I put into my mind. Thank G-D I have been able to push them aside and replace them. Still hanging on !

WOW! 5  weeks. when i was sunk in, i couldn't go even one day! guard, shep nachas from all of this - it's all due to you. yasher koach! and yasher koach to everyone, yes, even those who fall, because falling is PART OF THE PROCESS.there will come a time when you wont fall anymore! as long as you keep it up, and keep connected to this site.if you break away from this site, unless you find something else like this site, you will go back to the old ways of addiction.

Jack, first off thanks for those kind words. I was truly inspired by your story!
In regard to "falling as part of the process" I have a hard time with that. I feel that it can be an excuse and will not accept it
