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."

" Is it possible to reclaim a life that through reckless abandon has become so strewn with garbage that it appears that the person is unforgivable? Or what about the one who is making an honest effort but has fallen back into sin so many times that he feels that there is no possible way to break the seemingly endless pattern? Or what about the person who has changed his life but just can't forgive himself?The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us. His Atonement is infinite. It applies to everyone, even you. It can clean, reclaim, and sanctify even you. That is what infinite means—total, complete, all, forever. "
