Acted out twice today. Didn't look at porn or nudity(first time in a while) but wasn't much better then that.
Still trying to adjust the settings on the new filter to the correct settings.

Cmon you got this! See if you can make it to motzei shabbos without acting out - dont worry what happens after that. Seriously don't. For sure No heter to act out after that but j don't worry about it
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!

Looking forward to being busy with Zman. I think I've had a few days where I didn't realise how much free time alone I would have
Does anyone know when gye 2.0 is being launched?

Just spent some time trying to search for bad pictures. I can see that my new filter is very good at blocking porn, but a bit worse at blocking things that are less extreme, but still bad. I think I need to adjust the settings a bit.

Going to sleep now

Also searched for some stuff this morning as well. I haven't masturbated, but feel like I might end up doing it today

Great job for posting hear.
If you'd like to, I'd suggest calling someone. (You have my number). This is not primarily a tactic that just postpones the inevitable. It is to get someone else involved in what's going on so we don't obsess, we can talk it over. I find that it helps.

I masturbated earlier this evening. 
Not feeling so down right now, but do have a bit of a feeling of being fed up, I don't feel like I'm capable of being clean for more than a week or two right now, I keep on falling at the first hurdle. I haven't made any progress in a while
