Thank you for sharing. It sounds to me like your behaviors progressively get work. I also hear a certain amount of powerlessness and unmanageability. I can relate to thinking I don't have resentments against my wife.

hatzlacha

yes it has gotten progressively worse but only in intensity i have not done anything other than stated above
and have given a lot of thought and DO NOT resentments to wife this is not contradictory to getting frustrated and the like

probably never helped because never kept up
filters always have a way around them

I also have to admit that the part about thinking an ejaculation was a medical problem was quite funny to me. The first time I masturbated I thought I had peed.

I suggest you change your name to something more humanoid. It's currently like a blimp on the computer screen
a-z123, or at least have a human emotion like workingguy or skeptical or serenity (those are taken, but something similar).

Then I'd ask you what the risks are in getting on the phone and calling another guy on this forum or speaking to your Rav? 

And i dont buy Taphsic as the sole sobriety tool

please forgive me for not being so savvy (dumb) but how do i change my  name

risks are none just wife and myself not comfortable giving out our # to the guys here and unless he is in israel the times just don't work.
my Rav/Rebbe is in the usa and quite frankly i don't want to talk to him even though he knows all for every time that i have talked to him whether about this or not he always puts me down hard (maybe that's part of my problem)

thanks for the chizuk guys keep it coming

I went to the bathroom and turned on the lights to make sure it wasn't blood.

But I doubt that's helpful for anyone to know..

Day 15

guess i had a sign that Hashem loves me yesterday....was signing on to gye when a dating site came up(i have a very strong filter but the name is the  same as a kosher site so i guess it fooled the filter  )but when the initial sign  up was done it wouldn't load anything so B"H i didn't see anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
guess the shock of being caught is wearing off... gotta up the awareness and defenses....

had a really good thought that i have so many things to be thankful for and it made me really happy loving wife 2 adorable cute kids more or less stable life...

anyways to the point here i'll try to tell my story (moderator if this should be in the balei battims forum let me know).

first a disclaimer I LOVE my wife and she has been a great source of strength and i in no way harbor any resentment towards her. also my background is totally yeshivish though my parents are from more modern backgrounds and would be considered balei t'shuva and have an older brother that went off for a while(see #4 below) but s now married and growing a frum family but not a yishivisha guy.

it started when i was 7 or 8 with m totally accidental and didn't know a thing (even asked hashem that whatever just came out of me shouldn't be a medical issue) and it developed to p on the internet finding ways to sneak onto the computers .... even was caught a few times all before my bar mitzvah then in 9th grade over heard a joke tried it myself and now was also hooked to phone chats and the like ... got caught a few times even admitted it a few times over the years opened up to my parents a few rabbaim mashgiach didn't help for to long just found ways to cover it up more ... in bais medrash years never got caught and really went nuts with the phones ... went to israel and continued stats quo admitted it once when messed up and got a friends card charged but didn't stop for to long got married AND STILL CONTINUED but wife found out ....

now about 3 days before signing on to gye wife busted me again so here i am.

my problems are like this :
1)I'm not a outgoing person by nature and do not have alot of friends which gets to be lonesome
2)my loving wife cares alot but is a very closed person upstairs and downstairs and has been the cause for much tension and stress (yes some has to do with my warped mind but i really feel not all of it is bec. of it ) (cordnoy i think here is where we will relate the most)
3)i'm a sensitive soul that gets down and needs outlets from the stupidest things that really should not bother normal people
4)I was the cause (there were other reasons but i started the process) my brother was so angry for years for he was blamed for using the internet for p when i started and i have still never told him or apologized and it still eats me up.
5)family tensions are skyrocketing since my fathers petirah a few years ago and it drives me insane to see everyone fighting and it does not help that we are the "mediators" for everyone.

well that that any comments or points that need to be clarified please let me know really want to finish this though i know it can take a long time

Hey czworking123 (how's that name change coming along?).

I actually wrote out a long response to you, which was probably a mussar shmooze, though I talked myself into thinking that it wasn't.  Then I decided I better go back and read more from your thread before I posted it.. I got lost on the forum along the way, accidentally deleted everything I had written, and I'm kinda glad I did, cause then I re-read this post of yours, and actually payed attention (paid attention?)

Sounds like you've got a lot of really awesome things going for you - a great wife, great kids (best wishes for your baby to feel better). And some really challenging and stressful things, lots of which are basically beyond your control. There are definitely (probably) guys here that can talk to the wife stuff more - I'm not one of them.  If calling is farther than you want to go right now, you can send a private message to them or be in contact through an anonymous e-mail account.

You said ask for clarification, so I will.  

I'm wondering about how you see yourself as not outgoing, don't have a lot of friends, and being thrown off by "stupid" stuff that "normal" people hardly notice.  I don't know more about you, but are you being too hard on yourself? And do you think those parts are as important as the other issues you mentioned? Just trying to better understand.  

B' Hatzlacha!

P.s.- just some food for thought. My experience with opening up about my problem with lust to people I meet through GYE or similar places is very different than opening up to people in my life that do not share my issue.  Each might have pluses and minuses, but one of the pluses is that there is less shame to open up to someone on GYE because they "get it" without me needing to explain it, and there is less need for me to feel ashamed and hide it afterwards. Personally, If you find someone on the forum that you think you trust and respect, I don't think there is any harm sharing your phone number, real name, heck even your social security number (or Teudat Ze'ut ID #) with them.  But there are always anonymous ways to reach out at first, either in the U.S. or Israel.  I'll still be awake when you wake up, as will many people here.  I'm just saying, you have options.  Good luck!
