The Objective

Dear Reader,

By all accounts I have been a pornography addict nearly my whole life.  It has been a struggle written in my psyche for many, many years. I struggle with it today. It will be my cross to bear, my vigilance to maintain for the rest of my life. Regarding the theme of this blog, I want to focus on a key issue that hurts the healing, recovering addict.

IGNORANCE

For reasons I am unsure of there is an ignorance regarding this debilitating addiction. Science is doing all it can to evaluate this claim. Society continuously denies the potential this issue can even exist. And then there is you and I, those individuals wh know for a fact that their struggle could have no more sincere name than an addiction.

If I were to go today and meet randomly hundreds of people, you would have people openly saying:

I am trying to quit smoking

I am a recovering alcoholic

I am  a recovering shopaholic

I am a recovering bulimic

and I would say “oh good luck with keeping on track.”

But what if I were to tell some of these people:”Oh yeah, I am a recovering pornography addict?

I would lose relationships

I would be considered a pervert

I would like to say people come to the table to face this demon equally.

    I just commented with a welcome to Ransomed Heart Net. You draw me to specifically express gratefulness to the Lord that I passed by this dark corner without being sucked in. Just enough, though, and in some lives I’m connected with, to be empathetic.

    Excellent blog title. Be patient and many will eventually come on board. Ask and I’ll give you some names of the Salt Lake City Rfheart fellowship, or you can find them on the RHnet. My family is in Loa area, soninlaw being a youth therapist. I connected briefly with the boys up there but am a lurker, not a full participant. A couple are clearly LDS most are not. Seem to get along really.
