recoveringfor.life Her hair looks so soft and long here baby girl! I had the longest and warmest chat with my Manager today about our sexuality. He is the most loving and kind manager ever. He made me feel so comfortable, and made me feel like embracing my sexuality even more. Why should I feel embarrassed about my sexuality!
Embracing my sexuality, life and everything from now onwards

recoveringfor.life I've spent a lot of my life confused and angry. Therefore i'm using the gym to get my confusion and anger out because talking about it is not on my to do list at the moment. I've felt good yesterday and today so that's a plus :) hope you all feel good too :-D

latterdaywarrior I decided to change my name to Latter-day Warrior because I don't like the negative connotation in the word fighter. I would rather think of myself as a warrior like the stripling warriors, fighting for truth and righteousness in defense of my family.

I love all of my fellow warriors against this plague of pornography and sexual addiction. Thank you for your amazing examples of strength and goodness. We must continue to battle every day!
"Righteous desires need to be relentless, because, said President Brigham Young, “the men and women, who desire to obtain seats in the celestial kingdom, will find that they must battle every day”, therefore, true Christian soldiers are more than weekend warriors." (Neal A Maxwell)

helloannegirl Alma 60:11 // Captain Moroni writes a strongly worded letter to government judge Pahoran. He's angry. Angry that the government has neglected them and refused to send them more support. (Of course, there is another side to the story, but Moroni only knows what he's experiencing.) // This chapter hits home for me. Moroni tells Pahoran that he cannot sit on his throne and not join in the fight. He cannot think someone will fight in his stead. He cannot turn a blind eye and think that because he is good and favored of God that trial will not find him. It made me think of the hymn: Have I Done Any Good? This particular line: "Then wake up and do something more than dream of your mansions above." I was Pahoran (from Moroni's perspective at the time.) I thought, "All is well. I'm good. I do good. I obey. I'm righteous. Pornography stuff won't happen to me or my family. That only happens to bad people. People who deserve it because of their poor choices." I was prideful and judgmental all under the mask of "righteousness." I sat on a throne in my mind. Looking back, I SHUDDER. There is such a stigma around addiction and I contributed to it. // While addiction is very real, SO IS RECOVERY. AND HOPE. Today is day one of #recoverymonth and I'm happy to be a part of it in some small way. I love my husband. And I love what recovery is doing for us so far. We've just scratched the surface of real recovery and have yet to really dig into great recovery, but I love the hope and healing that we are receiving in baby steps. We've come a long way with a long ways to go still--either together or apart. // Stay tuned for a special post from Simon. He's finally ready to share his thoughts on recovery #recoverymonth #workyourrecovery #breakthestigma #12step #imamormon #bofm365 #ibelieveinchrist #addictionisreal #recoveryisreal #12stepstochange 2d
  •   mylifeasjanedoe I was the same way. I was so naive and unaware. "My husband could not possibly be a porn addict, let alone a sex addict -he's the Elders Quorum President". Ha!! I have realized that anyone can have this addiction. You just never know. My husband isn't even a member anymore, but he's active. The ward members have no idea. I look forward to hearing what your husband has to say. Thank you for your thoughts today. 2d
  •   latterdaywarrior This trial was something I read about in an Anita Stansfield book and was horrified by . Never thought it would be my story. 2d

  •   rosetfelt Having a husband who's a sex addict has taught me that EVERYONE has problems. If you think a family or couple is perfect and/or has a perfect relationship, you just don't know them well enough. When I kicked my husband out of the house after his adultery, the ward was shocked. Only a couple trusted friends knew what I was dealing with with his addiction, and then only in the last 10 years. I suffered alone for the first 20. Back then it wasn't talked about or addressed and there were no resources, but this life has taught me to NEVER judge. I used to be very judgmental, but I never feel that any more. I simply think, "Everyone has something they're working on." For what I have learned and who I have become I am eternally grateful. 2d

#lightkeepersaddictionrecovery (Husband posting)... I think for me and for others struggling with addiction it's not that we don't feel like doing the things we "should", it's that our brains have been reprogrammed to forget about those things when our addiction is present. Because of that for ME doing all of the daily things whether I feel like it or not is when I do the best. When I stop doing my "daily's" is when the little amount of willpower I have built up quickly disappears. My daily's include- prayer, scripture study, step work, checking in with sponsor, reaching out to other men in recovery and a couples check-in. I have never acted out on a day that I have completed all of my daily's. So the formula is simple, do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not (like always easier said then done). Even with all of the chances I have been given and how important my family is to me most days I still don't do all of my daily's, there are lots of excuses as to why, many of them good excuses. Probably sooner then later will come moment of truth and by not doing daily's every day I am leaving room for my addiction to take over. While I am not perfect today I am closer to recovery then I was yesterday. #illtakeanother24 #onedayatatime #babysteps #12step

  •   personal_progress_power Thank you 2d
  •   alipherd Words we all need to hear whether or not we deal with addiction. Thank you for sharing what has helped you. 2d
  •   halabilly I was just talking with a friend about how addicts aren't inclined to do hard things, because they've always taken the easy way out by going to their addiction. You have to rebuild those muscles and redevelop a desire to do hard things because those times always come. Sometimes the hard thing is remembering to do those dailies. My husband and I have discussed, previously, how he sometimes has felt that all he could do was to get through a day sober. Not white knuckling sober, but recovery takes an effort too. So the battle has been so real in his mind that he doesn't feel he has brainpower left, or anything left in him to give to even think about those other things. I think that is why even addicts in recovery can be so forgetful at times or seem to lack common sense. It is maddening, but I can also have compassion when I know that it is because I just was a particularly triggery day. I think that is the value of filling your cup and practicing things during the 'calm' times- so it doesn't sap so much in the other times. 2d
  •   latterdaywarrior Thank you for sharing. I was thinking about what you said and how it relates to the gospel. The basic "Sunday school" answers including daily prayer and scripture reading, family prayer and scripture reading, family home evening, church and temple attendance are also those things that keep us safe from worldly influences and even harm. All of us have days where we don't want to do the daily's. This life is for all of us to figure out what our priorities are and gain the self-control and self-discipline to make our actions consistent with our knowledge and desires. #keepfighting #fightthegoodfight 2d
  •   erc_15 Thank you for being so open and thorough with your resolve to conquer this plague! I've been fighting for the last few years and just began writing about that at erocconquer.blogspot.com if it may help anyone please check it out. Thanks for all you do 2d
