Gevalt that is funny!
Admin put these lines here cuz he likes 'em:
"The heart needs to be broken when will-power is not enough"
"Get off the 18-Wheeler and onto a tricycle!"
"The heck with me, what can I do for you?"
"I do not particularly care exactly which "lav" suicide is. I'm not interested in it for other reasons!"

His old Modus Operandi was editing peoples' posts for inappropriate material, it drove them cRaZy angry...some fights broke out (virtually) and Guard stepped in and the wackos tried to put 'the Kabash' on poor Kedusha! In the end he was saved and all lived happily ever after.

But it was dramatic for a minute there....

So it seemed funny to me that as proof that Kedusha is 'alive and well', you pointed out that he was editing posts!

Make sense? Or am I just a complete goofball?

Kedusha, I am pretty new here. Going onto day 26 and struggling. Would really appreciate some tips from a veteran like you. It is one thing to do "one day at a time" 25 times and totally another to do that 1000 days in a row without fail. What is your approach?

Dear Mayim,

I'm sorry that I did not respond sooner. I've been off the forum for quite some time.

I can't write at length now, but I use every tool in the book as needed. That includes Chizuk e-mails, the GYE handbooks, and more. And I reach out to the RBS"O all the time and, as needed, to GYE Chaveirim.

Hatzlacha!

Dear Chaveirim,

B'Ezras Hashem, I am very happy to report that, as of today (May 18), I am three years clean. When I counted Sefira Thursday evening, I was astounded when I realized that today is Yesod shebeYesod. What Hashgacha!

I am tremendously grateful to the RBS"O, to Guard, and to the GYE community for helping me reach this point. To those whom I know from the forum and, especially, to those whom I've spoken to or met in person, your friendship means a great deal to me.

As we approach the historic Asifa on Sunday, let us take tremendous Chizuk in how far we've come in this struggle, individually and as a community, and let's be confident that, with the help of the RBS"O and each other, we can continue to make significant progress.

Chazak v'Ematz!

Sincerely,

Kedusha

If you would've been here in Israel you wouldn't be astounded at all, it's advertised all over the place- no one had any idea what number thursday night will be, but EVERYONE knew that it'll be yesod shebiyesod.

If you would've been here in America you wouldn't be astounded at all, it's advertised all over the place.


And to Kedusha, MAZEL TOV!!!! That's amazing!!!

I assume you will be sitting 'oiven oon' at the Asifa. I want to come give you Sholom and kiss your hand - and ask for a bracha. Oh, you're not oiven oon? Is it elyoinim lematoh vetachtoinim lima'alah? Anyhow I'll be looking around for a guy that looks like a shtick Kedusha.
