Thank you @R.E.M for the shout out!


Today was a stressful day but I hope to be back in shape tomorrow.
I'm not sure if it's because the winter is getting to me or because it was laundry day...

I guess we will find out eventually.



One day at a time!


Wishing you all well

Wow Zedj, mazel tov on this truly remarkable accomplishment!

​Please reflect and let us know what has been working for you?
 i.e., what three pieces of advice would you give to a newbie on GYE?

I'm not having the the easiest day so thank you R.E.M for the applause.
It gave me the extra boost!

Overall good day but it got a little harder a few hours ago.

BH doing alright now.

I gotta keep my head on straight when I suddenly get a fantasy attack or when I feel weak.

What helps you ask? 1-reaching out 2-distraction

Thank you!
Yes it truly is remarkable!
I never thought I can live 3 weeks without porn.
Now B"H I'm 63 days clean (9 weeks)!

Had a much better day today.

@Ish MiGrodno you got me thinking!
I wil BEZH post about what has helped me in the near future.

67 days clean

Thank you R.E.M!

Every day I thank Hashem for a clean day and I daven that I don't lose control over myself.

When I say modeh ani in the morning besides for thanking Hashem for a new day of life, I ask for a clean day, a day of proper avodah and just to be a mentch.

Yes I may struggle with some of the above, but it's the goal I wish to reach....to be a different person from what I once was.

Wishing you all a good shabbos!

Wow, bli neder I will try that as well next week!
Modeh Ani may be "overlooked" by other (more obligatory) tefillos, but it is oh so powerful...

Good Shabbos, brothers!

I am always inspired when I read through your thread.
Keep up the amazing work. If not for yourself then at least because we need the chizuk!

70 days clean

Thank you Lou!
I'm happy others are finding chizuk in my thread.

I myself go back to the beginning of my thread and can't believe how far I've come.

I'm so grateful for everyone here that shares there stories and chizuk, I would not be able to keep going without you guys.

I thank Hashem for giving me the strength and willpower to reach this milestone.

It really is a joyous moment for me.
So as I click the "I'm still clean" tab (if you watch closely you may be able to see the 69 turn to 70), I would like to say L'chaim! it's a miracle (for me at least) that I'm here holding where I am.

I wish those that are having a tough time to not lose hope! You will succeed! It's not an impossible feat!
For those doing well and keeping strong, I wish you continued strength and continue being a source of chizuk for all of us!

יָגַעְתִּי וְלֹא מָצָאתִי אַל תַּאַמִין לֹא יָגַעְתִּי וּמָצָאתִי אַל תַּאַמִין
יָגַעְתִּי וּמָצָאתִי תַּאַמִין

"If someone says, "I have worked hard, and I have not been successful," don't believe him. If someone says, "I have not worked hard and I have been successful," don't believe him. If someone says, "I have worked hard, and I have been successful," believe him!"
