I know usually day 1 you're supposed to start on a "strong day" (when you feel like you'll never do it again) but I honestly feel like I'm "Weak" already, and its only been a couple of hours

You can call TAG (Technology Awareness Group) - they have very tech savvy guys who can hopefully advise regarding filtering unique devices. They have offices in most large Orthodox communities and are eager to assist.

Welcome Falafel!

I think we can all attest that without a filter we are hopeless!! But with a filter we are hopeful!!

​Please stay around, continue to post and read too.

​Looking forward to watching your success.
