Nothing can be more frightening than feeling out of control and powerless. Such are the feelings of those struggling with a pornography addiction. Nonetheless, peace and recovery are possible.
Listen to stories of individuals who have struggled with pornography and found the peace and success they so desperately sought.
- Manage Emotions, Express Feelings, and Build Friendships
“The more I tried to stop, the more difficult it became to stop. I learned that there are many streams running into the river of pornography. As I slowed the stream flow, I could feel the Spirit more in my life. As I accepted myself and my emotions . . . [and] learned to let others in, I learned to let Christ in.”
- There Is Hope—Change Is Possible
“The addiction had robbed me of self-esteem, peace, and the close relationships I desired with God and my loved ones. I often worried that if people found out who I really was, they would no longer love me. With the help of my wife, bishop, loved ones, group and individual therapy, and, most importantly, the Savior, I have been able to climb out of what once seemed a never-ending hole of blackness.”
