Now, next time an "overwhelming" urge hits, just say to that urge  "Get lost. You are fake. Last time you tried to fool me that you actually have a koach over me, but you see b'ezras Hashem, I just blew you away...."

I'm starting to feel McLuster creeping up again... I'm going to try HHM's advise and also get busy now to distract myself.

Not sure if this works for you. Do exercise until you're collapsing. 

Hatzlacha!

It's a great idea the only problem is that when I feel like I need to act out I have no interest in exercise

Exercising on a regular basis helps curb the urges in general. The brain secretes dopamine when one's heart rate is raised. That means having a brain that is better regulated vis a vis stress. Plus, if one gets used to generally exercising, in a tough moment it is easier to just start the exercise protocol.

B"H I have made it to 20 days! 
I definitely do not miss the shame and regret that comes with acting out. Also overall I'm much more calm and relaxed. It's a different world. 
Hashem please help me stay clean! 

Hatzlacha to all

B"H I'm up to 26 days and I thank 'ה for every single day that I'm clean!

One thing that I have done differently this time around is decide I'm not going to use YouTube for recreational purposes. It's now been 19 days and I can truly say that my life is so much better and the fight is easier. 

If anyone is on the fence regarding YouTube and feels they need it to relax or as a outlet I would recommend trying to stay away from it for 24 hours and see how it goes.
Believe me you will not die from it!

Hatzlacha to all!

I'm at 35 days but I feel like I am slipping a little... Or more than a little 
I haven’t been careful enough "in the street" & the past couple of days I've been wasting so much time.
