What a day, I know for sure now that teimptation is going to be there for the rest of my life, and I went to a website a screaming voice in heart yelled get off! I listened but in but in the other ear another voice said go back, your missing the pleasures but I did not given, truly satan voice and his dominans are so cunning in a fake comforting way that leads into dispair, I now recognize this will be a trial for the rest of my life, in a way it reminds me how this sin has destroyed my life, but I recognize that this is learning experiance and trial that I can learn, I have learned alot today about the power of Satan. I must remember that goiing to the temple is getting closer and Satan is power. I am greatful for this website because I reminded the heart ache, pain and the destructivness of mb, pornography, sex addictions. I found that when I go to the shower and stare at it, those sad stories enter my mind, and I say to myself I will not add pain to others but choose to do right.

Hang in There!    
"Keep hanging in there. You're doing good. I don't think that temptation will be there for the rest of your life neccessarily. There are addicts in my ARP group that aren't tempted anymore. As our leader said recently, he thinks he could swim in a pool of whiskey and not want to drink any."

Thanks for letting us know!    
"You are doing great! Way to follow through with your Bishop. Keep close to the scriptures, prayer and good choices in entertainment and music. You are so right! Satan is power but Christ is the most powerful. You need not fear when Christ is in your corner. Stay strong! You can do it!!"

Way to go, my friend    
"That sounds like success to me. Those temptations come. Focus on the success, get up, and turn to God. You're a good man."

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
