To All The Women...

When I found this site, I was filled with the despair of isolation. I felt so alone. I knew that a lot of men had sexual addictions but I had never met another woman who did. It wasn't something that was ever talked about. But now I've read the blogs of a lot of you.

We are not alone. Porn, mb, and other sexual addictions among women are becoming more prevalent. I hope that all of us can take what we've learned through our trials to help other women be prepared and strong against the temptation. I hope that we can make something good out of the pain and trial that we've been through. I hope that we can help each other.

And don't ever think for one second that you won't have your Prince Charming. You deserve true happiness and through the Atonement, you can be happy. You can change. And you can receive all the blessings that God has in store for you. You are a daughter of God.

We can overcome this.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!    
"Thank you for this post. It meant so very much to me. Just like you, I didn't think that many women had sa. I am grateful for the support that this site gives for both men and women....for childrem of God who want to do better. Although it still is comforting to know that another female can relate to what you are going through. Thank you for this amazing post. it brighten up my day. My prayers go out to you. It really is so good to see the females on here to, I am always way to embrassed to talk to ANYONE because it is something "girls don't do". Some of my friends talk about how disgusting porn/mb is in front of me. I want to scream and say girls do it to. I know it is disgusting.....I am not happy with all the choices I have made with it, But I understand why we turn to it. why anyone turns to any addiction. I am grateful I am coming to find this out more, it hard but worth it in the end.
thanks again for sharing. Sorry I went off about somethings.
-getthrough."

THANK YOU    
"I wasn't sure if I wanted to say my gender or my addiction. As you said, it's really not something that is ever talked about. It is always assumed to be a male issues, never really an issue for both genders.
Thank for posting this, it gives me more hope & reminds me that I am not alone in recovery."

Thanks    
"That's exactly the way I felt until I found this site. That I was alone. I didn't think any other women struggled with mb."

You are not alone    
"You know, I think there are a lot more women out there who struggle with this problem than we know about. I've read statistics that have talked about how over 1/3 of porn sites are geared to attract women. If that is the case, there are a lot of silent sufferers (myself included to a large degree). We are ashamed and embarrassed to talk about it because it does have the stigma of being a male problem. But more and more I realize that is just a myth. I wish I was bold enough to tell people that I struggle with this. I think there are probably a lot of sister out there who struggle with this who are too embarrassed to talk about it with anyone. So a viscious cycle perpetuates within them. Maybe if they knew about his site and the struggles that we have, they could find some comfort and reach out and start trying to get some help.

I'm trying so hard to get some help. I just feel like my life is spiraling out of control. I am even considering going to a non-LDS addiction group so I can talk more freely about this. I feel like we are very limited in the LDS AR meetings. I don't know the addicition of anyone in that group except the group facilitator person. And no one in that group knows what my struggle is, and I don't feel free to share it. The meetings are great though and remind me of how we can look to the Savior. But I need someone I can talk to about this and call when I feel a slip coming on. I need someone to talk to regularly that will hold me accountable."

"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. "
