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

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.



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."

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
