'↓'Dealing with the guilt'↓'

Chances are, you are probably
extremely hard on yourself. Your
addiction can be discouraging,
and can seriously damage your
self-esteem. You may go for a
few weeks or months without a
problem, and then -- Whammo! --
you fall in the hole again. And
when you're in a hole, it's easy to
feel very worthless.
All I can say is, don't beat yourself
up! You aren't perfect. God
knows what you are trying to
accomplish here. You are trying
to overcome an addiction, an
addiction that didn't develop
overnight. Don't expect to gain
control over your addiction
overnight. I didn't develop my
plan in one day; I developed my
plan after years of trying, failing
and learning. Give yourself a
break.
Think of it this way. You are
taking steps to change your life
for the better. You are going to
feel closer to God during this
process of change than you have
in a long time. As you prayerfully
seek his assistance in changing
your life, you might also ask him
to help you keep your progress
in perspective. Are you seeking
out pornography every day?
Then going two days without
seeking it out is a major
accomplishment! Recognize that,
because God certainly does.
He wants you to succeed, and
he'll help you get to the point
where you have control of your
life again. But right now, he
knows your weaknesses. He
loves you more than you can
understand, despite your
mistakes.
Being clean three days does not
excuse sinning on the fourth, but
you need to understand that you
have actually accomplished
something positive. And you can
do much better next time.
My personal plan helps me focus
on the goal, much more than on
the problem. That's why it works
for me, and I hope it works for
you. I think it will. When you
focus on a goal, and reward your
own successes, you are going to
experience an increased sense of
self worth. Determine at the
outset that when you
occasionally stumble (because
you will -- at first), you will pick
yourself up and not give up. Your
own plan might need some
adjustments, but DON'T GIVE UP!
If you've been addicted ten years,
it's going to take a long time to
change patterns. Start again, one
day at a time.
Each day that you succeed will
increase your self worth, and
give you added strength to
succeed tomorrow. So don't
worry about succeeding
tomorrow. Just worry about
succeeding today, and rewarding
yourself tonight.
