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"

" 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. "
