Know your enemy

אמר ר”ש בן לקיש יצרו של אדם מתגבר עליו בכל יום ומבקש להמיתו
(שנאמר צופה רשע לצדיק ומבקש להמיתו (תהלים לז
ואלמלא הקב”ה שעוזר לו אינו יכול לו שנאמר ה’ לא יעזבנו בידו
:סוכה נב

The Yetzer Hora makes believe he’s your friend. You should know that it’s not true; he’s your worst enemy. As the Gemora testifies he tries to kill you every day.
If you want to see how evil he’s, go look on alcoholics and drug addicts. The Yetzer Hora is robbing them of their body and soul. From them you can determine for every bad character trait, lust or transgression that the Yetzer Hora is enticing you with. He’s really out to kill you, and what he makes believe is so good, is pure poison and death.
