What scripture characters and stories speak to your souls about the struggle against sexual addiction?

Here are some that I find to be very poignant every time I read them:

1) King David -- his entire life story.
2) The penitent tax collector (Luke 18:13)
3) Peter walking on the water (Matt. 14:28-31)
4) The woman taken in adultery (John 8:3-11)
5) Nephi building a ship (1 Nep. 17:50-51)
6) Moroni and the title of liberty (Alma 46:12)
7) Peter denying the savior thrice (Matt. 26:75)
8) Paul and his thorn in the flesh (2 Cor. 12:7-10)

The struggle of Enos    
"He spoke of the "great wrestle" that he had in asking the Lord for a remission of his sins. He prayed all day and well into the night before he received his answer."

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
