An Introduction

Hello, I am new to this web site but have been attending LDS Addiction Recovery classes for several weeks. The program is wonderful and I am learning things I never knew before. Perhaps the most important knowledge I've gained is that I'm not alone in my addiction to pornography, masturbation and lust. Ending the isolation I've felt as an addict for the past twenty years has been life changing. I've found that the weeks I attend meetings are my best weeks. With the holiday season it's been difficult for me to attend as much as I'd like, and I need to make sure I don't lose focus.

I was excited to find this web site, a place to write about my addiction and the process of recovery, and share what I learn with others. For everyone out there who struggles with similar addictions, my heart goes out to you. Together, with each other's support and by the grace of God, I pray that we will be able to find freedom from the chains that bind us.

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "
