Sooo.... I used to indulge in cyber sex and role play and lately I have been SUPER tempted to get back into that. When I decided a few months ago I had enough I deleted the accounts I used and I haven't looked back. But lately Satan has been pushing the right buttons. I have a lot of down time at school due to it being my last semester and I am taking only a few classes. I find myself thinking what would it hurt, its only talk...But then I know what happens and I have to step away from the computer for a while. Frickin A this is hard! I've been super depressed lately and been feeling worn down. I don't know what to do anymore..... This addiction was my escape and now I just feel like I can't escape anything any more.......I am super scared.....

"I agree with Anonymous. Withdrawals are natural part of pulling yourself away from addictive behavior. And the urges are not linear. Some days the cravings are strong, others non-existent. This is the body trying to adjust to all chemical processes you are now depriving it of. This is manifested in your thought processes desperately trying to gain equilibrium. Well now you are trying to find a new equilibrium. You need to fill your life with wholesome activity to find the equilibrium and to make it stick."

"Jesus rejected temptation. When confronted by the great tempter himself, Jesus "[yielded] not to the temptation‚ÄĚ. He countered with scripture. Gospel commandments and standards are our protection also, and like the Savior, we may draw strength from the scriptures to resist temptation."
