I only see one way that it can be read, but I have no idea who he is. That was my point. We have no idea and therefore we might be talking yo ouw own brother here 

I'm major paranoid, but I've come to feel that if I'm 'caught' in recovery by people who are struggling themselves... well it might not be so bad afterall...

It's been discuss elsewhere on the forum (Hashem Help Me mentioned it on his thread) that meeting fellows GYE members is a very liberating experience.  The forum provides anonymity, which allows its member to "unload" their burden and discuss/share freely about their struggles.  At the same time, sharing the burden with real people takes the recovery to a whole new level.  I'll admit that the thought of people finding out about my problems is terrifying, but if I have a chance encounter with another GYE member, it would probably be a powerful experience. Kind of catch 22

quick thought
we leined this week bout יפת תאר where the torah was matir bc hkb"h knew that people wont be able to withstand the yetzer hora.
got me thinking; the only ONE situation the torah deems not withstandable is war. which needs understanding.
the answer is simple, in all other situations you have to make sure to avoid getting into the situation in the first place. of course once youre in it youre stuck, but why are you in it at all. wheras with war where the torah sent you to war [even if its milchemes reshus its still al pi Sanhedrin] so you have a rught to be there. therefore the torah is matir יפת תאר 
have a good week!
I don't mean to discourage anyone by this

Mazel tov! If you can do 25 you can iyh do 250. It is obviously not a need. Did you ever hear of someone fasting or not sleeping for 25 days? The "pressure" we feel as time goes on is totally in the mind. Physically there is no explosive build up going on inside.... May HKBH help you continue breaking free.
