"If your addiction is a sexual one, Go to an SA meeting. There, you can find a sponsor.

Here's the website you can go to in order to find a meeting: http://www.sa.org/"

"Welcome back. I remember you and have been concerned about you for the longest time. You and CWatts18 and Ymir have been on my mind.

Without looking back at your posts (from long ago), as I recall, you are in your 40's, had a porn addiction, were married, had abstained from your addiction for several years (I think it was four, or nine, not certain), but had a relapse when you got depressed. Your wife didn't seem to sympathize with your sufferings from depression, and when you relapsed, she left you. Then you turned to drugs and alcohol also, which you hadn't been addicted to in the past. Then you dropped out of sight (at least off of this website).

Man, I've been worried about you. SO GLAD you've returned : ) : ) : )

Now I might not have all the details exact, but I'm just a human with very limited capacities. Heavenly Father, His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost all know the details of your life, they know them perfectly well and never forget them, and they each love you with an infinite love, and that love is constant, never wavering. And they direct their Holy Angels and inspire mere mortals to help you. How can you go wrong with all this going for you?

Can't tell you how good it is to see you back. You've made my day. Man, you've made my month.

O.K., so what Anonymous said above is right, about going to meetings. You might want to check out the General Addiction meetings if you have a drug/alcohol addiction plus a sexual addiction. I hope that you're working with your bishop. If not, please start. And going to the meetings and getting the 12 Step Manual and WORKING THE STEPS is supremely important.

And please stay with this site. You will always find sympathetic people (fellow addicts, some who have been in recovery for months or even years) to help you. Don't wallow in toxic shame. Realize that you are of infinite worth and no matter how many times you fall, a loving Savior and Heavenly Father have their arms stretched out to pick you up again, and the Spirit is there to guide you.

Good to have you back again, bro."
