When you begin the process of healing yourself from the tight bonds of Satan. he begins to work over time so that you fail. I have felt that this morning as I look for a job and to take care of things around the house. I am reading Believe in Christ and it is a great book. I know that by making the right decisions I will be blessed and my family will see the difference that I am making. Dont get me wrong...it is hard to fight the temptations..but I just look around and see the pictures of my wife and son and the picture of Jesus Christ and it gets easier....I know I can do this and I know that I can be free from the grasps of Satan..and today I am proud to say I have gone 4 days without falling into temptation. It may not not sound like a long time, but for a recovering addict..It is a great start...

Every day    
"...is a triumph.

Making the Savior and Heavenly Father a daily part of your life will help (key word help) you stay on track.

Every day you are free of porn or masturbation and eventually lust, ... you are SLOWLY building trust for your wife. You are SLOWLY building safety again.

You will get to a point where you are not "white knuckling" it and are actually experiencing true sobriety.

Reading your words, "I just look around and see the pictures of my wife and son and the picture of Jesus Christ and it gets easier" reminds me of this music video by Sanctus Real: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLr6G8Xy5uc&ob=av2e"

"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. "

— Gordon B. Hinckley
