Day 48 First thing I do is go on this forum. 
Than get out of the situation, go distract yourself. Music, whatever you love doing.

Day 49 No one said life is easy. Realize all you you have, and how grateful you should be. This challenge is part of your mission, show the boss you can get it done.

Day 52 I was thinking recently about how much good is in my life. If you think about your family, your health, your livelihood there is much to be grateful for. God truly loves each one of us.

I think this can help, when at times we ask why am I struggling with this. Why do I have this challenge?

By realizing how much god gives us, we can understand how a challenge is for our own good. 
Even if we don’t always pass the test- it makes us grow better and stronger.

And don’t underestimate the Yetzer Hara, he’s got many tactics and been around a while. 

Good luck,

iwillnevergiveup

Day 54 on Friday,the Yetzer Hara tested me in way I couldn’t control.  I know now that sometimes the test is moving beyond the challenge and not reacting to it. Shabbos went well, and Thank god i’m still clean.

Day 58 Some things don't work as planned, and that can cause you to be less productive, more stressed and easier to fall. The things you do everyday are important and have an effect on your struggles. Be conscious of yourself. Today was great.

Day 61 Firstly I crossed the  2 month mark, thank you to all who post, and read mine. All of you help inspire me to keep going and when I see you read my posts it makes want to continue writing. 
This fight is truly the hardest and longest challenge of my life, but as see how far I’ve come it proves to me how a person can do anything in the world if he tries hard enough. And if hashem gave me the challenge- he knows I CAN pass it. 
The Yetzer Hara keeps trying to throw different curve balls as he sees me winning for this long, but I fight to win. So there is no turning back and if I do trip and fall I get back up and keep pushing.

Remember a real tzadik is someone who falls and gets up again again and again thats what makes him a tzadik. The same is true for a shomer habris you are still a shomer habris even if you fall as long as you keep getting up and fighting

Day 63 Everyday, is either going up or going down. Always focus on how you can
grow.  Today went well. Let’s keep the momentum.

Day 64 Always try your best, and than a drop more and more. So you did it! Meaning you could do it and you don’t regret the effort. Point is you’re capable of doing a lot more than you may think.

R' Shafier series "The Fight" is what helped saved me.  Believe it or not, I've listen to that series probably close to 15 times over a period of three years.  Listening to that series gave me so much chizuk and hope in this struggle.
