I want to do another week of שבעה נקיים

Thanks to everyone who joined me until now

DOES ANYONE WANT TO JOIN ME FOR 1 WEEK KEEPING OUR EYES CLEAN
​starting tomorrow Tuesday June 21


Our wives count שבעה נקיים and pure themselves before they are together us, how about we do it once for them


I thought after שבעה נקיים comes Mikvah night…....


I guess that follows.
But at this point I'll have to excuse myself. I try to stay far away from a Mikvah. It generally brings me to the opposite of purity...

No Mikvah for this SSA (among other things) dude.

Shabbat Shalom!

no mikva for me either for the forseeable future...

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.

שבעים פנים לתורה

I didn’t mean that, but that’s true for some people.

I meant something else, I wrote Our wives count שבעה נקיים and pure themselves before they are together us, how about we do it once for them

Usually husband and wife have intimacy after שבעה נקיים and I just kept it and…….

DAY 9#.  Friday July 1st
B''H  GOOD [a little slippery]

DAY 10#.  שבת קודש July 2
B''H  GOOD

DAY 11#. Sunday July 3
B''H  GOOD

DAY 12#.  Monday July 4
B''H  GOOD [a little slippery]

I didn’t fall back, and I have to give myself credit I had a lot of opportunities for a lot of stuff, I travel and pass by some places that are lust interest, but I never stopped, and I even looked away when I was in the street etc. but it still wasn’t lust free. A glimpse her and there, and to much interest in it.

I think I need to start posting again every day how my day was.

And to be mindful that I’m not really interested in that its just a snake inside me, it’s like its itching

And if anyone wants to join me it would be much appreciated.

Have you ever read a good book on ACT? They have this concept of acceptence and making space for a unwanted thought in your mind. 
It helped me alot when there is an urge on the street and even if im able to avoid directly gazing at anyone, i know that everything i do happen to see will bother me tremendously, i practice that for a min. 
It goes something like this!
1. Scan yourself from head to toe and feel any sensations you might feel. 
2. Now, think of the idea of lust, nothing specific, only the idea that you know that there is something in your brain that wants it, you can imagine it as an animal, ( I imagine a pig, as i grew up around them and i can vividly imagine one) and you see that this animal only wants lust, doesnt care for anything else, and you are really bigger and you are disgusted by that animal, but hes still there, cant get rid of it. 
3. So now, you feel where in your body do you feel the lust, (I mean someone in the heart, throat, chest, etc, not the p***s, that's just a physical reaction, not the source) lets say, you feel it in your chest as a burning sensation.
4. Start breathing deeply and be aware that the sensations is still there and that you cant get rid of it even if you want, and start making place for it, you can say "I know clearly that i dont want this feeling and i would rather not have it, but its here now, and i will make place for it so that it stops bothering me so much"
5. If you do this correctly, you will be able to be fully mindfull and aware that your lust is not you but its there anyway. But the most important thing is that it wont bother you so much now that you stopped fighting it so much. 

I hope you understood what i write and that i works for you. I think you should really get a good book on ACT.
