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."

"I need not define your specific problem to help you overcome it. It doesn’t matter what it is. If it violates the commandments of the Lord, it comes from Satan, and the Lord can overcome all of Satan’s influence through your application of righteous principles. Please understand that the way back is not as hard as it seems to you now. Satan wants you to think that it is impossible. That is not true. The Savior gave His life so that you can completely overcome the challenges you face. "
