Lots of Exciting News at GuardYourEyes.Org

In a string of recent upgrades to the GuardYourEyes forum, we made a few major changes, started a few new boards and finally launched the HEBREW FORUM as well!


Here are the details:


1) Gender Separation: After consultation with Rabbanim and addiction experts, it was decided that the men’s and women's forums on GYE will now be completely separate. Men can no longer access the women's forum, and women can view, but not post on, the men’s forum (kind of like a one-way glass Mechitza ).

2) The "Spouses of Addicts Forum”: We began a new board for Spouses of Addicts (not visible to regular members). If your spouse knows about your addiction and is struggling to come to terms with it, they now have a forum where they can share their experiences and exchange chizuk with one another. Have them sign up to the forum here, and once we approve them, they should let us know who they are so we can give them access to the "Spouses Forum".

3) The "Married Men’s Forum”: We started a new forum for "Married Men" (also not visible to regular members), where guys can discuss issues that they may be uncomfortable discussing in the open forum among singles (such as Niddah cycles, marital relations, and issues that come up with their wives, etc.)

4) We finally launched the GuardYourEyes Hebrew Forum!! For all those who are more comfortable typing/speaking in Hebrew, please join our Hebrew forum, moderated by Reb Shraga Shlachter, an expert in sexual addictions and the author of the book "The First Day of the Rest of My Life" in Hebrew. (Click here to order the book). If you know any Israeli's who struggle with lust addiction, please let them know about our new Hebrew forum!

5) We hired someone recently to do data-entry consistently on www.guardyoureyes.org. From now on, there will hopefully be new articles, stories, tips and Torah thoughts every day on the website. Make sure to subscribe to our RSS feeds to get all the latest articles straight to your feeders!

Stay tuned for plans in the near future as well!


1) We plan on installing monitored separate-gender chat-rooms into the forum, where members can exchange chizuk in real time, helping them “get out of isolation” (the number #1 killer in addictions) and to connect with other strugglers. The chat rooms will also enable people to reach out for instant chizuk when feeling weak.

2) We are hoping to upgrade the entire forum soon to SMF 2.0 (Simple Machines Forum 2.0) which will give the forum a whole new look, and add many new and exciting features.

All in all, GYE is growing and adding new options all the time. We hope you will find the new features beneficial to your recovery.

Please help us to continue expanding our work!


PayPal is Up Again on Our Site!


On the right side of our website www.guardyoureyes.org there are now once again PayPal donation options. Monthly donations are possible as well.

(Some Background: GYE had a PayPal account for over a year, but it was closed in September by PayPal because they demanded proof that we are a non-profit organization. We began the process of becoming legally recognized, and thank G-d, the process is well under way. We are now a legal corp by the name of GYE Corp. We also opened a bank account under that name. Just today, we sent out the 1023 forms to the IRS to obtain a 501c(3) (tax-exempt) status, and that cold take another few months. However, we were finally able to re-open our PayPal account under the business name GYE corp.)

Please donate and help us continue helping hundreds of Yidden, and expanding our work to new dimensions.

Thank you and Tizke Lemitzvos!

From a technical standpoint, there are several things that are needed to be done before we can install a chat module here on our site. We’re currently in the process of upgrading the forum software and transferring the site to a new and more advanced type server. Once all these pieces are in place, we’ll have more definite information to be shared about the chatrooms.

No, Reb Shlachter doesn't write English well enough to post here. That's why he is the admin of the Hebrew forum!

Keep guessing... :D

my guess is theyre both guard and he has multi-personality disorder...like we'll find out that he is really guard, admin2, dov, bards, 7up and kedusha and he's just a raving lunatic with all these different personas....
To be honest rage i was thinking the same thing. Just didnt have the guts to say it! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
