Well Rabbosai,
B'H yom yom!! It has been a roller coaster couple of months. I had the K9 Filter installed on my computer in July and it has helped me tremendously. The downside was that I could not get onto GUE Network until I added it to the white pages.
I am pleased to report that I have ba"h 55days clean. I can only attribute it to help from above! I feel the Ribbono Shel Olam knows that I have been trying to break this for many years and sees I have been really serious this past year.
B'H I am more than half way to the 90 days. Now the hard part begins, where I am sure the yetzer horah will be pushing really hard.
I would appreciate feedback andhelp form people that have been here to give me some advice to get to 90 days. My other concern is once I get there, I will lose the motivation to keep going. Any advise would be appreciated.
P.Y.

One day at a time.
No more, no less

We can discuss post-90 motivation around day 89

It is true that we need to take one day at a time. I am sure it is the Y"H saying, you'll never break it 100% so may as well give up. I am determined to keep fighting this fight. Thank you for your chizuk!

Yes, one day at a time, and . . .

Each day, just for that day, pretend that you're up to day #89!
Just as an alcoholic needs to avoid that first sip, a lust addict needs to avoid that first slip.Slip today? No way! ;)Fall today? No way, Jose'!
