Step 1 - Key Principle — Admit that you, of yourself, are powerless to overcome your addictions and that your life has become unmanageable.
Hi,

I've realized that I really do need all the help I can get to overcome my pornography addiction. There is nothing I want more than to be married in the temple for time and all eternity and through the help of my girlfriend I now know that in order to do that I need to be willing to do anything to change this, even if it is terrifying and scary.

So now I'm here, and I'm ready and willing to change.

-Alex

Good luck!    
"Congrats on reaching out online for help Alex, that's a big step. It's a really difficult road to go down, but you're right - if you want to have a healthy and happy marriage then you need to do everything you can to overcome this now. Any effort is worth it. Attend groups, get a sponsor, do the 12 steps, reach out to friends and family - whatever it takes! One bit of advice: make sure that you are 100% honest with your girlfriend throughout this process. Like 100%. 98% doesn't cut it. Pornography will greatly harm your relationship, but dishonesty will obliterate it. Good luck on your first few steps on this journey."
