Struggles...

There is a daily struggle...almost like breathing..OK it is all about breathing everyday. I think it is one of the hardest addictions to overcome. My started when I was a kid and now I am in my forties. Temptations are ever where...movies, T.V. billboards etc. There are times when I wish I was blind then it would be easier..however we then have our imaginations..I know that I can do this..it is a factor of looking for it now..it is the factor of getting the images out of my head. I had an experience a couple of days ago where I was taking a shower and my head was spinning to the point of making me sick. I knew then that my life was out of control. I knew that I needed help, I know things get worse before they get better. I know my wife loves me a lot, however I also know she doesnt like me very much...This addiction robs her of feeling close to me. It robs us of being close as well...I dont want to just think being close to her is just about sex, and groping her..I want her to feel the love that I know I have inside of me for her.

This website is a great tool so that I can write down my feeling and let others know that they are not alone either. We all have skeletons, however together we can fight this and be winners...

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
