  1. My son has a college ex-girlfriend coming to see us for a few days.We live in a very small house.He and I are in a fight because I won't let her stay in his room while she is here. I told him I could get in trouble with the church if I allowed it.He said "Show me where it is written" I don't know where it is writtten.Does anyone know where it is written? My son is inactive and he 22 years old and does not understand.Anyone know where this is written?

    Dont blame it on the church. The church isnt a justice system. You are responsible for you, the church isnt going to discipline you. Start with that. Its not CHURCH rules. Its YOUR rules.
  2. I hope people are using the word 'addicted' in its true sense and not saying that people who have looked at porn a few times in their life, or even a few times a year, are addicted. I was flipping channels awhile back and it turns out that Cinemax as soft core porn. Who knew? Partly surprised and partly interested, I sat down and had a look. Am I an addict? Of course not. Am I going to tell the bishop? Of course not.

    I wonder sometimes if some of the males who say they are addicted have actually just looked at porn a few times (OK, maybe a couple of times a month), but it isn't ruining relationships, it isn't stopping them from going to work, it isn't making them spend the baby's milk money. That's what happens when one is addicted.

    And while we're here and talking about women, what about couples looking at soft porn together? Is that disallowed?

    Define addiction? ok i personally was addicted. But i dont care what it is if it is putting bad thoughts in your head, they are going to stay there. Your mind is a stage, and you are the director. But once you let that bad scene in it stays in the archives. If you let it escalate and get addicted you will regret it. For the rest of eternity.

  3. I have just a question. Has any other young woman or sister ever been addicted to pornography? They always emphasize men and boys and i feel like no one really thinks girls make the mistake too. Am i the only one?

  4. I was addicted to pornography for 3 years. I am a teenager and i have been actively trying to stop for one of those 3 years. I am doing really well, but i have done really well before and slipped and fallen back into it. I wanted to know if i NEED to talk to my bishop. What if i am able to stay clean? Can i wait until i am out of my home ward and in college to confess? I dont want my parents to know. I have never told a single soul. I have a very strong testimony, i am just stuck. I love the gospel, and i am so thankful for the Atonement. But i need to know what i need to do?
