I'll talk about my addiction

Two Foundations of my addiction:

Pride: I think my way is better, I judge, I argue to protect my ego, always trying to prove myself to others . . . . the list can go on

Denyal: After some sobriety I convince myself I can look at images or people around me lustfully without getting burned.

I'm struggling right now not to have lust for my wifes sister. I'm on vacation right now and its obvious how we are able to connect as friends and there is chemistry there. I'm not remembering God's commandment to not commit adultery applies to anyone including my wifes sisters. I need to surrender to Gods will on this one.

We are visiting Nauvoo right now (AWESOME PLACE!!!) and I ended up walking with my wifes sister alone because both our kids wanted a drink. well the church was open so we went in. Interestingly enough the ARP meeting was just starting. I did not attend but felt the power of those meetings. I decided to stay behind instead of walking back with her.

"Do everything you can to avoid being with your sister-in-law and especially being alone with her. You may not be able to control how you feel but you can control what you do. If you feel the situation is ever spinning out of control just run away, as far away as you can. Think of the consequences of what adultery would do to your family. Do not focus on how attractive she is or other pleasing parts of her personality. Focus on avoiding temptation and following the Lord."

"The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape. Suppose a storm is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you. Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of the gospel and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of life. "
