It is ironic that what helped me stop acting out today was finding a photograph. I found a picture taken of my daughter and I at a daddy/daughter date that was sponsored by our Stake. When I saw it it really hit me that what I had been doing would really hurt her if she knew about it.

Up until today I had been sober for a month. I think I will carry that picture around with me -- it really hit me how much she needs me, and needs a father that treats women and womenhood the right way.


"Way to go! Good thoughts."

"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. "
