Hey Everyone!!

I have been clean for over month now. It feels great. I know I still have a long way to go, but I know through the savior I can truly be clean. I love the Lord more and I feel more love towards my wife when I am doing what id right.

I do have fears sometimes still, and I am sure many of you do as well. I want to convert those fears to faith. Sometimes, if something suggestive pops into my view, I feel afraid of my addiction, but I quickly look away. I need to stay clean.

I have realized how my weaknesses have not let me stand up for what I believe in at church, but as I repent I can feel that confidence come out again. I can explain more about the gospel again. I would love to not have fear about sharing the gospel. I want others to feel that happiness. Now that I am focused on getting rid of my selfish desires, I feel that I will be able to be a member missionary again, and maybe after I have gone through th twelve step program, I could lend my services to help others who struggle.

I am striving for and eternal family. The Lord lives and he loves us. I know that I can overcome this weakness and be able to resist temptation in the future.


"Congratulations! I love to see other people doing well...It really does give me up that some day I can be there to. I am so happy for you and being clean for a month! I know that is a huge accomplishment and it gets easier over time. The atonement really is an incredible thing. I know that God is there for you, never forget it. Good luck with everything :D"
