My Journey to Healing, as a spouse of a recovering Porn addict.

Sunday, May 27, 2012


There are a lot of people in the world that believe Pornography and the things that come along with it are a perfectly natural part of life.  They feel that men have their needs and they can satisfy them in this way.

Then there are those of us that believe that it is wrong.  We may believe it is wrong because our Morals or our church tell us it is.  We may believe it is only wrong for a married man, but not a single man.

This is here for those that feel it is wrong.  For those who are healing from the effects of a loved ones addiction.  Pornography can become an addiction just as Alcohol, meth, heroine, gambling.  There are all sorts of things around us that can become addiction.  Sugar, Caffeine, Chocolate, abuse, food, prescription drugs.  While some of them may seem silly, all can become terribly gripping addictions.  An addiction is when you can think of nothing else but your next time.  When your life revolves about planning, attempting, achieving.  When this becomes your focus as you get more caught up in it you become unable to sleep, eat, think without first satisfying your need for whatever it is that you have become addicted to.
It gets to the point where it affects every aspect of your life.

This is here so that those who have been hurt by a loved ones addiction may come to know that there is hope.  There is help and healing through the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ.  He not only died for sinners, also for those who have burdens, who are mourning, or are heavy in heart.  Mathew 11:28-30 states "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in hear: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
