The Experiment

So, I have been Really struggling with temptation recently, since Greg's been calling and emailing me. It's been really killing me inside. Been getting desperate...Desperate for a way out.

Then, I listened to General Conference...There was a talk about genealogy. The talk discussed genealogical indexing. And from this talk, I understood that if I did some genealogical indexing, this would help temptation fade away for me. So, I figured I would try it. And, guess what, it has been working! I feel so relieved. Gonna keep doing this every day...it doesn't take much time. Hoping this will help me stay sober. Not being sober is way painful, so I'll try anything I feel might help...

Good idea

A place no more .....for the enemy of my soul.    
"I love this from Jeffrey R. Holland a few conferences ago...It's a great talk, dealing with difference between lust and love.

Like thieves in the night, unwelcome thoughts can and do seek entrance to our minds. But we don’t have to throw open the door, serve them tea and crumpets, and then tell them where the silverware is kept! (You shouldn't be serving tea anyway.) Throw the rascals out! Replace lewd thoughts with hopeful images and joyful memories; picture the faces of those who love you and would be shattered if you let them down. More than one man has been saved from sin or stupidity by remembering the face of his mother, his wife, or his child waiting somewhere for him at home. Whatever thoughts you have, make sure they are welcome in your heart by invitation only. As an ancient poet once said, let will be your reason.

Yeah, you're right...    
"I need to find a way to not get emails or phone calls from him. Last night, I blocked his email. Then I unblocked it for some reason. This hurts a lot. But I gotta find a way to kill my addiction. It feels like death, but I realize I need to kill this addiction, even if it kills me to do it. :/ This is terribly painful. :/"

"As Latter-day Saints, we need not look like the world. We need not entertain like the world. Our personal habits should be different. Our recreation should be different. Our concern for family will be different. As we establish this distinctiveness firmly in our life’s pattern, the blessings of heaven await to assist us."
