"Addiction's a tough enemy to defeat. I think of it as a monster. If I feed it, it will always want more and more, so now I'm letting it starve to death in a corner. But it's always there." (a Hollywood actress after years of rehab; taken from a website in 2010)

Every day we can make the choice to either feed or starve the monster. There is hope!

Feed the Right Wolf.....    
"The wolf we feed will be the one to survive..... This applies to addiction, despair, discouragement, jealousy, hatred, and also to faith, courage, strength, hope, testimony......We choose!!"

"I agree. Satan's first step is to make us think we have no choice. Isn't interesting how the "war in heaven" with Satan was over agency....nothing really has changed!"

"Now brethren, the time has come for any one of us who is so involved to pull himself out of the mire, to stand above this evil thing, to “look to God and live” (Alma 37:47). We do not have to view salacious magazines. We do not have to read books laden with smut. We do not have to watch television that is beneath wholesome standards. We do not have to rent movies that depict that which is filthy. We do not have to sit at the computer and play with ographic material found on the Internet."
