The Battle of the Generation by Hillel S. has been a huge help for me.  Message me to find out how you can receive a free copy.



some of the experiences I write about may make it easier to identify me.  This is ok.  I trust that if anyone discovers my identity they will keep it to themselves.  If you do realize that you  know me, I am completely comfortable and welcome you acknowledging me and my struggle in person.

I realized that I have been posting on other people’s threads but I have not updated my own.  Bh I am celebrating 75 days totally clean today and 112 days since I went on to any forbidden sites.  I consider this a gift straight from hashem and working very much on focusing on how much hashem loves me.

Wasn’t sure where to post this question-
I ordered a copy of the book The Battle of the Generation .  Do you think it’s OK for me to leave it around when my adult sons and their friends are over for Shabbos.  Most of them are not makpid at all on shmiras einayim.  I bought it for myself, but I was thinking it might be a good conversation starter….

The book The Battle of the Generation is written in a very careful & sensitive way. It does not mention any explicit terms and it's safe even for people that were not exposed. You will have a great mitzvah and zechus if other people start being more careful with shmiras einayim this is a classic case of mezakeh es ha'rabim!

I showed the book to a few rebbeim who counsel bochurim.  They had not seen it before and were very happy I showed it to them.

Tonight I make a siyum on four months clean of any porn or promiscuity.  Something I haven’t experienced since I was a child some 35 years ago.  I am cautiously optimistic that I can finally put that life away for good.  A true gift from hashem.

That is amazing! Mazal tov!
I don't claim to know the details of your challenges,struggles or successes. I am very impressed by whatever I have seen from you on this site and I have gained from your words as well. I just feel the need to point out that from my limited experience,now is the time to really double down and take whatever you are doing very seriously. Many of us came here and at first it was almost like a dream world "I am actually clean! I am done with the old me etc". However,the yetzer hara gets us (me) at that point. Eventually,I let my guard down and one slip led to the next and now the YH told me that I wasn't a new person. I was just a guy that had a nice streak. And that has been very challenging to contend with many ups and downs since then.
My Bracha to you is that what I wrote here will be totally inapplicable and you will not have this issue! However,if you do be aware that it is normal and it doesn't chas vishalom mean you aren't the new person you have become. Keep up the great work and keep inspiring us.
Hatzlocha!

I am very grateful for your insight and encouragement. All these connections that I am making are certainly helping. Bh I have some motivating factors at this point in my life but I know that I will always Be vulnerable if I’m not careful. Thank you for your kind words they are very meaningful to me.

I am  very inspired reading through your success.. BH you should continue to be matzliach. Also i very much like the idea of the Tefillah after a Nisayon.. its a nice kicker for pushing through the harder moments..

Wishing you much continued Hatzlacha!

Thank you bet much for the feedback it gives me a lot of chizuk.

Regarding the Tefila after the nisayon I find that this is extremely powerful in changing my mindset towards the nisyonos . Someone recently told me that the Meor Ainayim says somethings similar.
