How Personal Progress Helped Me Overcome Pornography


What a powerful story of one woman's experience overcoming addiction with the help of family members, Church leaders, gospel principles, and the Savior. 

When I was 10 years old, I was exposed to pornography. After that, I became heavily involved in it for two years. When I was 12, my mother decided to have a family home evening on the law of chastity. I realized during this family home evening that I had a problem and that it was unhealthy and wrong. I told my mother about it, and she helped me get rid of the pornographic materials I had. Later that week, I received a blessing from my bishop.

For the next three years, I tried to stop using pornography, but I kept having relapses.
