tonight I had strong urges, thankfully the filters, blockers,and accountability software , held me back from viewing porn.
Went to shower and the lust was still strong , I said a little prayer, told myself that it’s just a passing cloud of lust which will dissipate as quick as I disengage, which is what happened.

Thank You Hashem 
Thank you GYE

Okay didn’t really dissipate, it’s definitely still lingering, but much more manageable.

Iyh in a few days from now, you will look back and see how temporary the urge was. When it hits, it can manifest with an overwhelming appearance. However, we should view it like cotton candy. It appears so big, so appealing, so special; yet there is nothing really there......

I love the cotton candy reference (and love the cotton candy too). 
i like to look at it like Pringles. Once you pop, you can't stop, and you never ever get enough...

A gentile was trying to convince a simple yid to convert so he offered him a hefty sum if he would. The yid replied "I'm just a simple Jew' so I don't know much about this whole subject, all I know is what my father once told me, If somebody wants to trade horses with you and is adding some money to convince you, then you know its a bad deal...

The same thing can be said about the yetzer hora if he has to sweeten the deal so much, it must not be such a good deal.

The reason wrote it was like you always say when you say it  out to others it becomes less potent.
I was thinking this could be a pshat when the sar shel esav answers Yakov Avinu “why do you ask my name” - if it’s unnamed it’s a big scary monster, when you say it out and call it a name it becomes less of a force . ( if I saw this here somewhere excuse my plagiarism)
