An Introduction

Hello, I am new to this web site but have been attending LDS Addiction Recovery classes for several weeks. The program is wonderful and I am learning things I never knew before. Perhaps the most important knowledge I've gained is that I'm not alone in my addiction to pornography, masturbation and lust. Ending the isolation I've felt as an addict for the past twenty years has been life changing. I've found that the weeks I attend meetings are my best weeks. With the holiday season it's been difficult for me to attend as much as I'd like, and I need to make sure I don't lose focus.

I was excited to find this web site, a place to write about my addiction and the process of recovery, and share what I learn with others. For everyone out there who struggles with similar addictions, my heart goes out to you. Together, with each other's support and by the grace of God, I pray that we will be able to find freedom from the chains that bind us.


"Thanks for your prayers for us, Finallyfree. We pray for you, too. Welcome to the team."

"Freedom from your transgression will come through sincere faith, true repentance, willing obedience, and the giving of self. Why the giving of self? Because selfishness is at the root of your problem. Where selfishness and transgression flourish, the Spirit of the Lord can’t enter your life to bless you. To succeed, you must conquer your selfishness. When your beacon is focused on self, it does little more than blind your vision. When turned outward through acts of kindness and love, it will light your path to happiness and peace. "
