Recomitting myself

It has been awhile since I have been on here and I have been somewhat avoiding this website...I know I have slipped quite a bit..I have not looked at hard or soft pornography, however I have looked at pictures that would keep my mind from where it should be....I think that whatever you look at that takes the spirit away by lusting or fantasizing after someone besides your wife is still the same as looking at any type of pornography. It is out there more then ever waiting for you to just indulge yourself.

I have recently began listening to General Conference from April and I want to recommit to this blog and be held accountable for my actions. this blog was a great tool to me once before and I know by going to the meetings and being on here amongst friends I can once again do this.

My mind races...I will be starting a new job the first part of Oct. and I know that Satan is working in overtime to get deeper in my mind. I find that when I have stressed in the past that is when I am more susceptible to failing. I know that I need to fill my heart with things that the lord would like me to do and see.

I appreciate all of you for sharing your successes and feelings on here..You all are a great strength to me.

sorry to hear you are struggling    
"You are in the cycle of addiction, and it is very hard. Remember that you are not a bad person, you are an addict and in order to overcome this forever, you must give everything to the Lord and become a new man in him. An addict has lost his agency when it comes to his addiction. The only thing you have left is the agency to give this to God.

God gave you this weakness so that you would turn to him and lean on him to overcome. It is the ony way. It is so easy to praise the Lord when we are strong, but we are never closer to him in this life than when we are weak. It is okay to be broken, because that is when God does his finest work.

I pray that you will let him into your heart and allow him to hold this burden.

Hang in there, we are all pulling for you."

"Now brethren, the time has come for any one of us who is so involved to pull himself out of the mire, to stand above this evil thing, to “look to God and live” (Alma 37:47). We do not have to view salacious magazines. We do not have to read books laden with smut. We do not have to watch television that is beneath wholesome standards. We do not have to rent movies that depict that which is filthy. We do not have to sit at the computer and play with ographic material found on the Internet."

— Gordon B. Hinckley

General Conference, October 2004
