Over the last few days, I've been finding it difficult coming up with something to say. I'm afraid I reached a comfort zone and I don't really think anybody is that interested in hearing about monotonous days with basically the same things happening.


I can relate to that. i went through a similar stage. There were times i forced myself to post just to stay connected. Looking back i am happy i did so, even if my post didn't generate feedback at the time.
Another thing to do is to comment on other people's posts. it accomplishes the same thing and it easier to think of what to say.
KUTGW!!!!

Hi everyone!

Let me tell you from my soapbox up here that the last couple of days have not been so easy. I had some pretty crazy dreams on the night of Tisha B'Av, and one of them made me lust. B"H, I was able to fight it off. The second one though, was totally wack. I was inside a video game, and one of the characters thanked me for posting on GYE.
(This was during the time after I hit snooze button, maybe that explains it a bit.)

This morning I woke up with pretty strong hirhurim as well, but controlled myelf.
Any eitzos? How does one "filter" his hands?

You can always ask that tiger of yours to rip 'em off if you do anything out of line

(Unless you ARE the tiger)
!אנא עבדא דקודשא בריך הוא

וּבְיָדְךָ כֹּחַ וּגְבוּרָה וּבְיָדְךָ לְגַדֵּל וּלְחַזֵּק לַכֹּל

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...

LOL! That is too funny!!!!! Was the video game called GYE? Guard maybe you should create one? You have to save all the lust addicts and help them recover

I guess the characters would be bears, giraffes, and stuffed tigers

I actually remember it quite vividly. It was a baseball game, the guy was pitching to me, and after the game, he gave me a gift a la Derek Jeter. I asked him what I did to deserve it, and that's what he told me.

My apologies to anyone who has NO clue what I'm talking about.

Although "GYE" does sound like a great game (addictive!), it would probably be difficult to engineer without any triggers.
And without triggers, it would never sell, as we know too well.

There must be SOME developers here - everyone cant be therapists!

Let's get this thing going! Maybe begin a kickstart campaign.
