The only good news is: i didnt slip up yesterday.

i am having real problems.

also, while i look at this site, it seems like everyone here is someone who could easily last a week or two without messing up once. is this true, or am i really the only person who slips almost daily?

thanks everyone, youre always a big help, with your comments and love

There is only one solution.    
"You have to go to your dad/biship. You will always regret it if you don't. The time will come where you'll realize thats your only choice, and by then you will have limited your agency. Perhaps you won't be worthy for a calling, for a mission, or a temple marriage. Either way, by then you will have deep regret and shame. And guess what that won't be enough to change.

You need the guidance from your father and church leader. I held off on my mission because of unworthiness. I realized my problem like this took away the choice of a mission. I really wanted to and want to go on a mission. But if you're not temple worthy, you can't.

Don't fill you're best years with regret. Go to your dad and bishop, I guarantee you'll feel better. Just prepare for any "repercussions" like no internet or phone. They may seem like punishments but they will be blessings. Have the Holy Ghost and God with you is so much better than the burden of sin.

Good Luck. Its all up to you, every decision will have a consequence. I hope your choices will leave you feeling happy."

You are not alone    
"Dude, I used to slip many times a day. Went to a meeting and I heard people say they were 2 or 3 days sober and I thought it was some sort of miracle. Now, I can sometimes go a week or two, but it is still difficult."

More out there than you know    
"In high school, I could masturbate to porn about 4 times a day, and do that for days. This addiction really can harm your body in many ways. You're not alone, and I'm no longer that crazy and risking injury to myself. I still struggle with very late night binges from time to time, but I don't feel like a total porn monkey anymore."

Everyone is at different places on the path. Don't compare yourself to others position. You do your best and that is what matters. Keep moving forward! "

"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. "
