Have you ever felt this way?

Have you ever wished you were addicted to anything else besides pornography? Have you ever thought it would be easier to overcome if you had a substance abuse problem and not a self abuse problem? Have you ever felt it would be easier on your loved ones if you got high or drunk instead of feeding your lustful desires? Have you ever wished you could watch TV and not be worried if what you see will send overwelming desires to do wrong? Have you ever wished that what you did only hurt your body and wouldn't effect your mind for years to come? Have you ever just wanted to let your mind wander and not have to chase away any thoughts? Do you wish you could just be at peace?

These are just some thoughts I was having. Thanks for letting me vent a little.

Yes.

Definitely    
"I've felt most of those things at one point or another. The desire for peace is the strongest of them all. That's what I want more than anything - to feel peace."

That's it! Here is my new idea!    
"People let's become addicted to peace! Let's find it, and hold onto it, and NEVER let it go!

I think the first step for me is some prayer. I did read some about prayer... I never really thought that my prayers might need work but they do.
Thank you all. =)

"I need not define your specific problem to help you overcome it. It doesn’t matter what it is. If it violates the commandments of the Lord, it comes from Satan, and the Lord can overcome all of Satan’s influence through your application of righteous principles. Please understand that the way back is not as hard as it seems to you now. Satan wants you to think that it is impossible. That is not true. The Savior gave His life so that you can completely overcome the challenges you face. "
