Day 14
By Malibu

Meeting with Bishop tomorrow, made it to church twice in a row. Worse thing I've done is entertained an inappropriate thought too long without really realizing it at first. Once I caught it I was ok. Also my dreams seem a bit more sexual this week. But still haven't acted out. Something different so far is I'm being much more careful not to even poke around the edges of trouble. In fact that what I've been able to repent of last two weeks instead of porn and mb. Feels like a positive step. Something really weird... Temptations have been surprisingly easy these 14 days. Not sure why... Is satan just waiting for right time? I know it's not this easy. So far though it has been. And yes I'm knocking on wood. Just a little confused.


Keep it up!    
"Hey Malibu,
Congrats on the milestone 12 days ago, hopefully you're on day 26 now and still holding strong. I remember when I first really starting making progress, the first 10 days were pretty easy because I was on a high of recovery, but that slowly diminished as the pains of life returned. After that, there was a period of 2 weeks with some of the hardest temptations of my life. Satan knows the best times to attack. Don't think it's just gone away or you're done with it. It's not a question of if but when the stronger temptations come along. So keep strong and aware of the little things so you won't get caught off guard by a bigger thing. Also, feel free to visit my blog at for something else to do to stay in recovery, I'd be happy to help. Good luck!"

"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. "
