keep it up
The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings

Had a fall last night. Made it to 48 days clean. That's double my previous streak. Now I have a total of 106 clean days since starting GYE. I've seen significant progress since starting GYE and am going to continue my journey to freedom.

You have an amazing positive attitude that all of us can learn from it. 

If you view your lapse as a mistake and as a product of external triggers, rather than as a personal failure, research shows that you will have a much better chance of return to abstinence quickly. Your lapse becomes a tool to move forward and to strengthen your motivation to change, your identification of triggers and urge-controlling techniques, your rational coping skills, and the lifestyle changes needed to lead a more balanced life.

Fell after 20 days. Found a loophole in my filter system. Going to patch it and get back up. 
Total days clean since starting GYE: 126!

Thanks, it's going great. I'm finishing off the zman strong and getting ready for Bein Hazmanim. I am working out a list of things I want to get done so I can structure my days properly (בטלה מביאה לידי חטא).

A fresh start
Ok. going to start posting here regularly till zman gets started up again as a form of achrayus. 
Yesterday, I had a very productive day in the morning. I went to Shachris, learned for a few hours, and then helped out around the house. But after that, I had nothing planned and started watching YouTube videos and movies. This eventually led to me being triggered and having a setback. This completely threw me off. I went to sleep late, overslept in the morning, and basically lost my entire morning. Luckily, I was able to salvage the rest of my day. I rescheduled with my chavrusah and learned for a few hours in the afternoon. Then I helped kasher a kitchen at home.
I need to set up gedarim at home. For starters, I'm cutting out all movies and YouTube from my diet. Next, I'm removing my computer from my room. I'll leave it downstairs. Lastly, I'll try to schedule my days in more detail.
Iy"h I'll have a successful Bain Hazmanim.

Love it!
  1. “I'm cutting out all movies and YouTube from my diet
    I’m removing my computer from my room. I'll leave it downstairs
  2. Lastly, I'll try to schedule my days in more detail.

Me personally? #3 can be a more beneficial step than the others, although you definitely don’t want to skip those. 
In that case, the non-commital “I’ll try” can do with tweaking, and the “more detail” can do with something concrete but hey - without too many details. 

I can help you with it, however generally it can be more user-friendly if you are the one that gets the punches rolling, so - any ideas here?

I'm not sure what you mean in your last paragraph. Could you clarify?

Day #1
Today went really well. I accomplished a lot. And had barely any urges. Feeling exhausted now. Gonna go to sleep.
