And notice, I didn't say walk away - I said just walk on by. Just keep living your life, doing your thing - not his.


I agree - that is extremely insightful - thanks so much sb! and thanks yh for bringing it about!
Woa! I am getting thanked for somebody else's work!  ;D

I was just informed that I will be alone in the office tomorrow. Alone with Hashem, GYE, & my computer. The door is closed. No other unwanted guests will be allowed in without prior approval by all three of the aforementioned!

After all this discussion there is no way that you can let us down & listen to that evil little voice.

(I was gonna dare you to even try listening to him, but thought better of it. We cannot afford to try and fight him head-to-head. We should never underestimate his power. Just move on & busy yourself with the work. Don't even give him the dignity of acknowledging his presence!)


Do I need to say (quote) more than these wise words.  Good luck tomorrow (and of course today and thereafter).  Make sure you report back your progress.  To quote again a wise man:

It is stories such as these that give us all encouragement to continue the fight!

Gee, thanks, Ur-a-Jew!

That was exactly my intent in writing that post!

Rav Dessler Z'tzal once walked into the Gateshead Kolel (which he headed) and said to the first guy that he met, "I quit smoking today". He went over to another guy and told him too, "I quit smoking today". After he repeated the same to a few more people someone asked what is the purpose of his grand announcement? He answered, "Today is the fourth time that I am quitting!"

The great Rav Dessler was utilizing one middah to fight another one. He was using his Gaavah to fight his Taavah! After letting everyone know that he is officially stopping to smoke, his pride won't allow him to be spotted with a cigarette ever again! That is how our Mussar Greats worked on themselves.

I know that my post won't stop me in the privacy of my office, by itself at least, but once it is out in the open, acknowledged & announced to all, it does help in blunting the edge of the Yetzer Hora's sword a bit.



Besides for the fact that I know that my dear friends here will be rooting for from the sidelines. Won't they?

Good Morning Yosef Hatzadik.  Just checking in to make sure all is A-Okay.  Have a sober and uplifting day.  Hashem's watching (and so are we ).

Thanks, Ur-a-Jew. That is a mate when I need one! Knowing that others care and are thinking about gives me warms my heart. Who needs other things when I have such close friends?

So far I am Ok, Boruch hashem.

While driving to work this morning I got a very nice pep-talk from Steve. So the first part of the day, at least, should be fine!

What are you dong so long on GYE. There is not much to do.  Every time I check in, it has not moved.  This place has become so dull.  No people.  No posts.  Well I guess you could read the old posts.  Great stuff there.  It can keep you going for hours and days.  Sure beats porn.

We gotta keep this place alive.  There aren't even any moderators in this place.  Whatever happened to that Admin guy.  I barely see him.  He popped in once or twice in the past month I have been here.

Be well, Yosef the righteous.

I think it's died down a bit during the summer. Schedules change. Hopefully, it'll pick up again soon, with the help of people like you!

Hi gang!

Things are moving ahead a [relatively] wonderful! Or as Bardichev would say: GEVALDDIGGGG!!! (or rather, used to say. He is to busy to hang around GYE nowadays.    )

I am clean from Tumah sights & the actual deeds for 10 days now. 'Lusting' is another story :-[  That doesn't stop so easily. I have many things that were clearly rooted entirely in 'lust'. I was trying to decide whether i should restart my count - again? I decided not to. The demoralizing effect of restarting has had bad consequences in the past. Besides, then I may tell myself that there is not that much at stake if I were to surf 'just one more time'. "I will start my count {my diet} TOMORROW."  etc. etc.

After seeing that [glow=red,2,300]Guard Shlita[/glow] wrote the following in another thread, I am convinced that I took the correct approach!guardureyes wrote on 18 Sep 2009 08:12:

...... Tzadik, I suggest you hold two counts now. One for MB, which is well over 90 already, and one for the browsing... How's that?

Yosef, just checking how things are going.  Saw you were alone in the office today.  Hope everything is A-Ok.
