I am on Facebook, but I have never viewed it as a tool for excitement.  I suppose because my only friends on the site are family and real life friends.  My profile is set to private and most people I communicate with also have private profiles - only friends can see it.  I have had a few requests from men I don't know to be friends, but I always deny.  Also, when that happened, I changed my profile picture from a portrait of myself to group photos of family/friends or something else non-provocative.

i was seeing what girls i was friends with before becoming religious were up to...and granted, I recently graduated from college...so they aren't middle-aged or unattractive

I know i shouldnt be doing it, but it is the last thing i'm allowing myself to do...after getting rid of tv, installing a strong internet filter, and guarding my eyes when i'm out in the world.  I don't see myself using it for excitement, but i can see that it might lead to that one day.

I still would like facebook for corresponding since it helps me keep in touch with friends, but i might just have to not look at pictures.

Chart Updated! Some Sefarim bring down that it takes 40 days to get a used to a new behavior (like getting up before dawn). - And it takes 40 days from inception until the Neshama enters the baby. May Hashem give you a new Neshama in this merit! Ruach Nachon Chadesh Bikirbi.

Had a dream again that I fell, but no wet dream again (B'H").

That's the second time in two weeks.

Happy to hear from you, I was getting worried  :D

I believe that a wet dream is something to be PROUD of for us here on this forum (as opposed to others who don't struggle with this addiction). In the past, the body never needed a wet dream, we did it ourselves. A wet dream shows we are working on ourselves and making such amazing progress that the body is even trying to rebel

That shows that your subconscious mind is accepting the fact that you want to hold back, and it doesn't let you finish even in your sleep. This is an even BETTER sign. It shows that your subconscious is adjusting to your new, holier way of life.  ;D

Thanks for the chizuk!

I think i've internalized something....when i'm not actively cleaving to H' and growing daily, i'm like a sitting duck. That's what was missing this past week.

Today is Day 47...almost 49!!!!!!!
