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.

"The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape. Suppose a storm is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you. Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of the gospel and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of life.
