BH clean day today

I'm not in uncharted territory, but I'm on a path that I haven't treaded on in a while.

You seem to be on a good streak. Why don't you join the challenge?

Thank you
I'm still a bochur, so don't have $150 (or more) lying around that I can donate to tzedaka
Also I don't want force others to donate if I fall, I'm still yet to make it to 90 days...

I was thinking that when I wrote my 2nd point. However it doesn't really change the first one, that I don't have the money for it. I don't have a job at the moment

We can gladly make exceptions. How much money are you willing to wager on yourself?

How would it work? What are the rules if I'm not joining in the same way as everyone else. 

Day 18
BH today was clean

Same rules, if you fail you must pay the amount you initially accepted upon yourself. In addition, everyone who fails during your period in the challenge adds $2 to your bill if you fail, but with a cap of up to another $50.

Ok, are your still part of it after a fall?
I was thinking of maybe doing $50, I'm just hesitant because it can be a larger amount like you said, and I don't have a source of income

$50 is perfect. The whole point of the $ is to make a person hesitate before losing it. If $50 does that it's perfect. After a fall you have the choice of reenrolling, it isn't automatic. Welcome! Please post on the topic that you are joining!

BH I haven't had a lot of desire recently, and even when I start to fantasise or run through scenarios in my head, I don't have desire to continue. I can't take this period for granted
