70 days clean today. Glory be to God. Still striving to ensure all aspects of my life are in balance. I still believe that staying morally clean is managing our impulses before they get out of control.


Thoughts on impulses and compulsions.    
"Its pretty much the same thing. But I see an impulse as the inclination to do something. By definition, a compulsion is the next stage where after entertaining the inclination it becomes irresistible force to do something about it. I consider this the danger zone. If I can manage the impulses, I can stay clear of compulsions to do or when it can become even difficult to resist."

"My brethren who are caught in this addiction or troubled by this temptation, there is a way. Don’t accommodate any degree of temptation. Prevent sin and avoid having to deal with its inevitable destruction. So, turn it off! Look away! Avoid it at all costs. Direct your thoughts in wholesome paths. Please heed these warnings. Let us all improve our personal behavior and redouble our efforts to protect our loved ones and our environment from the onslaught of ography that threatens our spirituality, our marriages, and our children.
