Husbands and Fathers

I am amazed at the people on this site willing to share personal stories and advice. This is an incredible resource for anyone with addiction. In the last few years I have been facing an addiction to pornography. What a tool Satan is using to destroy the family unit. I have found education is key. This must be talked about, addressed and dealt with professionally. There are plenty of resources and tools to help anyone overcome and conquer this evil. If you are willing to do whatever it takes, you can find freedom from this trial.

I plead with husbands and fathers, and anyone struggling with addiction, to do whatever you can to live obediently. Your spouse, children and family deserve you to be there for them. Many of us are struggling with this addiction. I guarantee through this addiction you can learn to live a Christ like life and become a true disciple. In doing this you will be able to overcome any challenge that comes your way. Remember if you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten. If it is not working, do something else. Even though it is hard to ask for help, you must, and from someone who understands the addiction.

Lastly in changing my heart to overcome my weakness, daily I must acknowledge the Savior and my complete dependance on him to overcome my addiction. Thank you for all of you willing to take a stand.


Good Job, Leo!

Thank you!!    
"I like this post.
“Remember if you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten.” So true. My husband has been saying this a lot to me to. My husband has been trying really hard to be the man he is meant to be. I’m proud of him and very grateful to have him. I have a husband that really wants recovery for himself, his marriage and his family.
I looked over your posts and comments. I like your stuff. Keep it coming!! You said, “Thank you for all of you willing to take a stand.” That really made me realize how much I need to thank my husband for taking a stand. Thank you Leo for taking a stand!"

"The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape. Suppose a storm is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you. Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of the gospel and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of life.
