B"H things are going well so I need to stay extra alert b/c I think the yh is trying to lull me into a false sense of security.

Hatzlacha to all!

I'm having a rough day today. In the past that would lead me to listen to non Jewish music & binging on YouTube & after that it was down the rabbit hole. 
B"H I haven't done that yet but just to make sure that I won't.... 
I am mekabel bl"n not to listen to non Jewish music, or go onto YouTube, Facebook, & Instagram for the rest of today unless it's absolutely necessary. 

Hatzlacha to all!

It's really interesting my yh hasn't been bothering me too much recently.
All of a sudden I hit 50 days and I feel good about the accomplishment and what do you know I got a nasty unwanted visitor very early this morning..... 

yh: good morning Tzadik! you did it! you made it to 50 days! you're amazing!
Now you can masturbate because who cares you achieved so much already, just have a good time you earned it!
So you will have to reset the chart nu nu you'll do this again

Me: I've heard this shpiel from you too many times already.... 

1. I am enjoying life being free of needing the porn & masturbation pacifier.

2. I know that it's 2 minutes of pleasure followed by days of pain. 

So get the hell away from me & let me sleep!

Ps. I slept really well after that! 

Hatzlacha to all!

I'm having some urges this morning to go watch porn.... 

Me before GYE: OK I'll go watch it'll be good! 

Me now: this is crazy!! because of a fleeting thought I'm going to run after a fleeting pleasure that will literally end the second that I'm done only to be replaced with horror, disgust, pain, shame, & regret! 
NO  #@&*+~$  WAY! 

Also now I know that it's OK  the best to ignore the thought & keep moving on! 

Another game changer for me is that I'm starting the fight much earlier on before I get consumed with lust this is a much easier battle to win! 

Hatzlacha to all!

54!

Today I had a prolonged nisayon with many opportunities to be misgaber on my yetzer & not look. 
I succeeded numerous times! 
I gave in more times then I was successful 

the good news is that although I didn’t do as well as I could’ve I’m not going to let this go further. The old me would’ve let the lust run out of control & would've definitely fallen to porn or masturbation but not this new guy!

Unfortunately I fell late last night 

The good:
1. I made it to 55 days which is the longest streak since my last streak ended last pesach! 
2. I was having very strong taavahs last night but I still pushed off the fall for a few hours! 
3. I am not staying down I'm jumping right back into the battle! 
4. I have grown so much & learned so much during this stretch that will continue to help me! 
5. I didn't lose those days that I was clean! 

Takeaways:
1. Time to upgrade current filters & filter any unfiltered devices
2. I need to get better "in the street" 
3. I need to stop watching on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram 
4. I need to learn more in my free time

My goals:
Short-term - hit the "I am clean" button tomorrow night
Mid term goal - Be clean for 56 days
Long term goal - be clean for life

Hatzlacha to all!

This line amazed me the most...
"I was having very strong taavahs last night but I still pushed off the fall for a few hours!"
We can't imagine the nachas ruach that Hashem has from this... be proud!
thanks for the great chizuk...
