I am 17 years old and I have been struggling with a masterbation problem for years... it was the orignal problem however it soon eveleved into pornography, I have gone through much pain and sorrow. I have been attending AR meetings for a while know and I have already felt the heling power the Jesus Christ has to offer. Of course though, I still need help. With the help of the gossple, I have been able to stay away from pornography and masterbation for a while now. It looks like I am almost out. But for some reason, even though I am doing very well I still feel a huge guilt, a saddnes that I can't explain. I still feel the pain of my addiction even though my life is and has changed. I am sure perhaps I am not through with all that I must handle. It is like I can not... or will not forgive myself for what I once did. I hate myself for some reason, like I feel my nature ... a dirty animal with no future I act only on my selfishness. Why do I think this why? Life is changing ... . . . I still need help ... keep me humble

Please sombody help me so that I may continue with my succeses and finaly feel good about myself and what I do.

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
