Mazal tov!!!

Think about how good it feels to make it this far. Then think about how it will feel even better (if you can imagine) once u make it to 3 weeks.

With you every step of the way
Think about how good you'll feel if you say no to desire and compare that to how bad you'll feel if you say yes.

Desire is unique in the way that it is never fulfilled -  if you give in the desire comes back even more powerful in just a few days. Telling yourself that its ok because this is really the last time doesn't work because you are just adding new images to your head that will cause future falls.

The Joy of triumph over the yetzer hara is worth the effort it takes to win. It IS worth it! Keep fighting!

I had a fall yesterday.
While I know all too well about falling I also know all about how important it is to get right up dust myself off & start again. 

Hatzlacha to all!

Love the attitude! Please, please, please, please write down how you feel and the clarity you have after the orgasm/binge. Read it when confronted with the same temptations and break the magical grasp it has on your discipline.

If you get right back up you can continue pretty much where you left off - don't fall in a binge!!
