    Hello my friends,

    While I am not perfect in my recovery I would like to start offering tools that I continue to learn that have gotten me to some success. And I invite you to share the tools that have helped you. I want this to be the place that people go to find the tool kit for success!

    Tip of the Day: Take it 24hrs at a time. Remember that all you have to do is work on today and every yesterday will be a success.

    Tip: When able to participate, always prepare for the Sacrament well in advance.

    Fully leveraging the atonement of Jesus Christ may be a lifelong pursuit, but to get through addiction and our many faults, let us conscientiously do our best to be reconciled with God.

    Good 24 hrs, as and addict I recognize that my life is out of control and that I need you help Gods help. It’s all gotten really messy and I know that once and addict always an addict. I surrender to being an addict and take ownership for that. I will take my sobriety 24hrs at a time.

    Good 24hrs, today was good. I feels great to have a day or two without M or P. I really feared that I might be forever lost. It is nice to feel a little hope again.

  7. I know how you feel. I had a good, long run a while back, and loved it. But its been rockier of late.

    Saw some of your advice on another thread just a bit ago, and was impressed. Reminded me of a lot of the things I was doing right when I was on a long streak. Thanks for the encouraging words. Even though they were meant more for someone else!

    hey friend,

    Thank you for your message. We can do this. The rock parts always give way to those of us willing to look past our slip ups and press forward.

    I’m glad you found strength in my words. And it is always good to make a new friend. Thank you

    Had a good 24hrs.
    Man I have forgotten how much being on here helps. It is so goo to be supported by others and lift those that are in need. I’m an addict and I hope never to forget that again. I thought I had finally beat all of it. But truth be told when I left here I left a lifeline.

    Hello my friends, today I have been struggling. I have found my mind wondering to fantasy and P. I just need to say I am struggling and that I could use some uplifting words. Thanks

    Not sure what words to uplift, but I can tell you that porn won't uplift!

    Being in recovery is a lot about not forgetting we were addicted. Another part should also be about remembering we're good people.

    If you're having a phase where you find it hard to sleep due to horniness, wear two pairs of pants to bed. It helps, because when you wake up it's harder to access your genitals.
     
  14. Sorry I wasn't on Wednesday when you needed it. Selfishly, I'm here now because I need it. later afternoons at work are my most dangerous time. Its a low energy/high depression time. Fridays are often even worse than normal afternoons, and today seems to be one of those---And of course the allure of P is there as the quick fix to my problems! It helps to read your posts (and others). I'm reminded of the movie... I think it was Shadowlands about CS Lewis, ...and I think it was a reader of his who wrote him "we read so that we know we are not alone." regardless of who said it, I have often felt it is true here. Hang in there, and I'll do the same!

    When you resist a temptation, you gain the strength of it.

    By the way what I said about the 'Walk like unto a Goddess' isn't actual scripture, but it should be.
    It's something on the Emergency button I saw long ago, so I added to it based on what I read in Proverbs 31. Which, to my interpretation, his mother was telling him that since a Godly woman is worth more than Rubies can buy, the only hope that he can attract her is if he becomes worth more than rubies himself.
    I don't mean/want to be spreading false doctrine.

    I had a good 24hrs, it felt good to feel at peace with myself when on a date tonight. No money can buy that peace of mind.

    Feel like I'm always gonna be a failure at this. I just wake up feeling too horny.
    But this morning I noticed surprisingly I wasn't horny this time. I wonder what it is this time?
