Dear Friends,

I recently came upon this wonderful site and hope to enlist the help of it's many members. I have been sober from my addiction for two years and absolutely love life because of it. I have not forgotten where I came from and I am constantly seeking for ways to help others through their challenges.

I have been very impressed by the comments and help offered to others on this site. The Dear Brother Letters is a site committed to a similar purpose as this--recovery through writing. I am looking for recovering addicts to share their story as well as advice, encouragement, etc. to others who are struggling with the same problems. The modality for sharing is through a letter addressed to anonymous brother or sister in the gospel that you may or may not know personally. The hope is that by sharing our experiences through our letters, someone else facing the challenges we have faced will be up lifted.

While we began with a focus on sexual addiction, we are hoping from letters from all addictions as the principles and steps are the same. If you would be willing to share your voice through a letter, please email

Our site is

Thank you in advance for your help!

" Is it possible to reclaim a life that through reckless abandon has become so strewn with garbage that it appears that the person is unforgivable? Or what about the one who is making an honest effort but has fallen back into sin so many times that he feels that there is no possible way to break the seemingly endless pattern? Or what about the person who has changed his life but just can't forgive himself?The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us. His Atonement is infinite. It applies to everyone, even you. It can clean, reclaim, and sanctify even you. That is what infinite means—total, complete, all, forever. "
