Like the saying goes: it's not supposed to be easy, but it will definately be worth it. I referred to a moderate slip about six weeks ago. It took a few days to get totally back in controll. Then everything was very good for about five weeks. I think complacency is continuing to be a problem. The end of last week was a bit of a problem (going out of my way a few times to look at some bikini models). Nothing terrible, but incredibly dangerous. It is a very short step from there to much worse things. Sunday was great and I feel I'm back on track.

I just listened to Jeffery R Hollands talk from April 2010 Conf. I highly recommend it. It is about overcoming addictions (among other things). May the Lord continue to bless each of us in our efforts!


Way to go!

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "
