I didn't know that it was so widespread.
I didn't know how other religions viewed pornography.
I didn't know that many people would try to convince me that if I changed my attitude about it, and Pete embraced pornography rather than shunned it, all our problems would be solved.
I didn't even know for sure why I felt the way I did about porngraphy.
So when I started writing, I started with what I did know. I am a member of the LDS church, its teachings influence my life a great deal. I can't help but write with that underlying foundation. But my eyes have been opened, and I see that this isn't just a "Mormon problem."
I'm grateful to the women of other faiths who have reached out to me, and lately I've received more emails from non-LDS WoPA than otherwise. So I just want to post a few resources here to validate ALL women who feel confused about what pornography addiction means.
My friends who have used Recovery Nation give it great praise. I'd like to spend more time in that program myself.
I came across this blog post this morning and thought it was a great Christian approach, with a concise summary of suggestions post D-Day.
Fight the New Drug is a great website, but particularly this infogram.
And lastly, I've mentioned this website. It is no longer directly affiliated with the LDS church, but it was written by LDS family members of addicts. The downloadable manual/workbook is the most comprehensive material I've found, but to disclose my bias it is the one I use the most and I am therefore the most familiar with.
Please share if you have found other helpful websites or programs. My heart is full of love for everyone who has tasted of this bitter cup. Don't hesitate to reach out. The friends I've made from this blog are my greatest blessing in this trial.
