I need your prayers.
The past week, I have binged . I feel that I have gone back to where I was before I started working with my Bishop in April of last year. My self control, that I have worked very hard at cultivating, is gone.The dumb thing, is I'm not looking at porn at all. Its just masturbation.

I'm trying to pick myself up. I have finally taken the first step. I am out of control. I cannot do this without the Savior. I'm not sure exactly how I can do that, but I'm going to try.

I had an appointment to meet with my bishop today. @ the last one. But there is snow. I really feel that I need to meet with him. Not entirely sure why, but that he wikl. Sy. Say or do so,thing that wik make this click, and make this possible for me to overcome.


Thank you for reading this.

"It is time to "Change the flat tire" and keep on with the journey. Someone in group said that a relapse is like having a tire blow out on a long drive. You can choose to stay there on the side of the road and starve or whatever, or you can get out the spare and keep going.

A relapse is a time to grow. This is your moment to learn and make yourself stronger. What triggered it? Where were the danger signs? Ok, learn and then build up your defenses in those areas. You will be better for it. Recovery has relapses in it for most people. Do not for one second start letting yourself feel down about what happened. It is time to move forward.

You have my prayers.

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "

— Boyd K. Packer
