I have gone a week now with not doing anything to trigger my addiction.. However it is getting harder. I woke up this morning and I was going through my emails, as I was doing so thoughts came into my head of come on one more time wont hurt... I have felt great this week and I have seen a change in the way I think and feel. So, I chose to come on here instead and write how I feel at this moment..I want to continue to do well..and I know the longer I go without letting my addiction get to me the better is gets to clean my mind with the thoughts as well. I would like ot thank all the people on here..especially Confidence..It is wild how many friends you have on here without even meeting them. Thank you so much for the encouragement.


So true...    
"I just wanted to say that I can relate to this completely. A few days ago my wife and I had a huge argument which led to several good talks with my father and bishop and my desire to finally change the situation increased. I was going to try and get my addiction under control. The very next day, I was tempted so much harder than before that I could hardly stand it. Long story short, I gave into temptation. I understand your pain. Thanks for being honest and keep fighting. That's why we're on here, for help."

No kidding!    
"Satan has this particular sin/temptation as one of his favorites! I listened to a talk about SA and the speaker said that (soft) porn is the wallpaper in our lives. It is everywhere we go. We cannot shield all of it from our children and ourselves. So, we must be prepared to fight it on all angles.

Fight the good fight! :)

P.S. I needed to know I was appreciated today, so thanks for the reference to me. It's been a bit harder over the weekend for me w/ PTSD crap. :)"

"Each one who resolves to climb that steep road to recovery must gird up for the fight of a lifetime. But a lifetime is a prize well worth the price. This challenge uniquely involves the will, and the will can prevail. Healing doesn’t come after the first dose of any medicine. So the prescription must be followed firmly, bearing in mind that it often takes as long to recover as it did to become ill. But if made consistently and persistently, correct choices can cure. "
