Addiction
February 4, 2014 3:49 pm

i have been addicted to POT for years, the only thing that helped was going MA Marijuana Anonymous. there are groups for all Addictions. the only really way to rid yourself is to join meetings and following the 12 steps.

Thank you for making the mp3 available. Now I can listen to it in my car and on the go, rather than in front of my computer.

Tanya - Mashpiim

From all of Rabbi Simon’s lessons it is quite obvious that without a proper understanding of Tanya, one can never really appreciate the relevance of chassidus or how it can transform your life.

The problem is, that in the YESHIVAH’s and in the communities learning Tanya IS NOT A PRIORITY.

In light of the recent developments in our midst –
learning and studying Tanya IN DEPTH
MUST BECOME THE NUMBER 1 PRIORITY.

Must view

Rabbi Jacobson’s explanation of tznius is a must for everyone and anyone. His discussion on dealing with addiction (based on Tanya’s combined cognitive, emotional, action oriented approach), as well as depression and anxiety was so moving and powerful — and practical.
And that conclusion (don’t want to spoil it for anyone) — oh man, that blew me away.
I feel so proud to be a chassid.

thanks again!!!

Now i can understand why the laws of yichud should be kept with the computer!

May have to get rid of it
February 3, 2014 12:02 pm

Some people just had to get the computer out of the house. They thought it was fun figuring out ways to bypass the filters, AND THEY DID! How much more so would a kid be able to.
So, everyone is different. For some people, a filter is enough. For others, excommunicating the computer completely.
Usually, any facility (e.g. library, cafe, etc.) where someone can look over your shoulders and see what you’re doing should be enough of an embarassing deterrant to prevent looking where a “person of G-d” should not.

Amazing !

Very uplifting. Breath of fresh air. I would just like to add one thing about internet addiction. You will not be able to rid yourself of this issue on your own. You must put blocks in place. you need to block out those site that you visit so that your mind knows that there is no point/use in even trying to go there. go to “guardyoureyes.com” for info on what blocks are available for your device. It will always come back if you are put to the test, even with all the learning in the world. Simply because it has… Read more »

Please make sure if you use a life coach, that she has not been trained to use meditation based on Avodah Zarah..

Rabbi Jacobson::Your pearls of wisdom warmed my heart in a cold winter night. i appreciate your open mindedness and mindfulness to answering important questions. i especially loved the answer of breaking a habbit. Even if it is a good habit a person shouldn’t always do it. when it comes to struggles i suggest a person listen to shamiles nigun, for it is very powerful. When the nigun is being played and it hits the high key meditate on overcoming your desire, than you will tap into inner strength that will spill over your desire in overcoming your desire. in connection… Read more »
