I'm part of a team. Can't give up. Otherwise I would have long ago. So I keep getting up, till I'm KO'd. My goal here is to not get KO'd. I need to change my strategy, because he's gonna knock me out if I keep slipping.

I was thinking more along these lines

My road to 90 days, all with God's help.             What brought me here.90 days with Areivim

Made it 259 days from 01/28/17-10/15/17 without mz"l. At day 90, I started to go for all aspects of שמירת עניים\הברית. At day 168 I fell with שמירת עניים & restarted the count. On approximately November 4 2017, with the support of a fellow GYE brother (daily text messages/phone calls), I restarted. This round I'm working on שמירת הברית as well as שמירת עניים.

So that's how you win?

I cannot beat the YH by myself, he's way too strong. But, the same way a sports fan feels good when his team wins, (we won!) I feel good when my team (Team bb) wins. Not sure if that goes against Dov's policy.

Sorry to hear about your boxin' matches.

Have you tried one of the phone conferencesI? They generally speak to the inside of theI person and change, rather than a simple superficial bandaid?

Didn't try the phone conferences yet, not quite ready for that right now. It'll be another stress in my life & I'm trying to figure out how to deal with the stress I currently have. However I really appreciate your response Cords. (Aren't you on the dl now?)

So, I don't know the rules of boxing, but I know that you're not allowed to put your opponent in a chokehold. That doesn't really matter to me, because I do what I gotta do. My opponent doesn't follow rules. I won this round, got him in a chokehold.
 fixed the filter problems on my phone and laptop. Ready to keep fighting! Next round...

My pleasure.

Wrong!

At least for me (and others have told me so as well).
I am interested in sanity.
Fightin' for lifetime doesn't interest me one bit.

That's why now I am not fightin'.
I am not in the rin'.
Heck, I'm not even in the Garden.

Moral of the story:

Don't fight. Surrender! Seek sanity!

We have different stories here. If somebody who doesn't box goes into a ring, he will be destroyed. He can accept that he doesn't box and go do something else. In my story, I'm a boxer in a ring. I don't intend on surrendering, because my circumstances are different.
"Win some lose some" works for me, because in the big picture, my goal is not to have a perfect record as a boxer.
Heck, I may have a losing record, but look at a baseball player who "fails" in 60% of his at bats, but gets a base hit in 40%. He would be considered the best baseball player to have hit in all of baseball over the last 60+ years, a tremendous success. 
 So too, each of my successes are worth so much more than each failure.

Back in the 80s there was a businessman furiously typing on his typewriter, drowning in work.

Along comes a salesman to try to sell him the latest thing - a personal computer.

Said the businessman "I can't talk to you now, can't you see how much paperwork I have to get through!"

Nice story, I got your point. My point is really simple: There are many helpful tools that may be of use someday for me. But right now it can hurt more than help. 

The salesman selling the computer said, "Get this, it's gonna make your work much more efficient." The businessman replied "That's great, one day I may buy it. Right now I have no way of getting the money to buy it."
