You’re inspiring. I know you’re likely going through some hell-like moments, I have them too. I’m really taken back by the level of your resolve after falling from a 180+ streak of clean days...you got back up. I’ve struggled in this area since I was around 14. I’ve always told Hashem that I no matter what I will never stop fighting. 
you’re a true inspiration. I don’t know if that helps you at all but for me it helps to know that I’m being a good השפעה into the world, you definitely are.

Thank you so much Aaron!

1st of all I have come to realize the only way to really live is to get rid of lust from my life, so for me this is a battle of life or death.

For a long time I was scared to post eventually what really pushed me to where 2 things

1. I wanted to be mechayev myself, when I post I feel I need to keep to it. This has kept me going if not for posting I wouldn't be at 36 days right now. (and my life would be hell right now) 

2. I want to be an inspiration the same way I have been inspired by so many other guys that are active on the forums. 

Hatzlacha to all!

Hi all here's a little update. 

I am at 36 days now but been slipping up and wasting too much time & I need to right this ship now before it sinks so here's the plan... 

For the next 5 days I will Bl"n 
1. post everyday 
2. Before I go to sleep I will make small goals for the next day 
3. Exercise for a minimum of 5 minutes
4. Learn something that interests me for at least 5 minutes 
5. Celebrate in a small way each clean day

Ps. I started this off with a 30 minute workout and I'm feeling good about this! 

Hatzlacha to all!

37 days going strong!! 

Making small goals last night for today really helped me wake up this morning with more purpose and focused on what I need to do. 

I'm looking for suggestions for small ways to celebrate a clean day?

Good shabbos & hatzlacha to all!

It really depends on the person,but a small treat or special drink can do the trick.

A tub of ice cream will definitely do the trick!

One who has given up hope is without a G‑d.

One who sees hope in each day is already free

43!

Thank you Hashem for making me crazy busy today so there was pashut no time to lust!!

The lesson that I learn from days like today is that if I start lusting I need to get busy doing something meaningful ASAP. 

Hatzlacha to all!
