Pick your #Addiction: Pornography, Drugs, Alcohol.....?
Today at church the spiritual leader of my congregation (our Bishop) said that the most common problem our men and young men are struggling with is pornography. As most people are aware, pornography is often an addiction. Not only is it addictive, but can lead to some very serious problems and is often destructive for marriages and families.
One of my friends, Christine Dixon, helped two of her sons overcome a heroin addiction, but said the solution was the same for any kind of addiction. They used a 12-step program to overcome their addiction. Their story is here: http://familiesbattlingaddiction.com/
Here is a link for the 12 step program: https://addictionrecovery.lds.org/?lang=eng This program is the best thing out there so far and has literally saved lives. It deserves a try.
It is always best if the person who is caught up in an addiction has the support of their friends and family. But even without that support, it is possible to overcome a powerful addiction!
Best wishes to you and your loved ones! If you are overcoming the addiction, my best best wishes for your success! You CAN do this! <3 <3 <3
