Letter to myself:

Dear Charlie, its time for you to stop! You need to refocus your mind towards God and everything else that is real in your life. You are a smart man going to grad school ad believe you have found the one girl you want to spend your life with. Don’t ruin what is real with something that has no affection or feelings for you. You have already started this journey by admitting your addiction to a religious figure and he wants to help you in your journey. He and I believe you can do this, all you need is faith and discipline. You can beat this, all you need to do is believe in yourself and have trust in others. Do not fail this mission! What would Brittany say, or your parents, or your close friends? Show them that you can become the man you always dreamed of being. Become Charlie from the Dragon Warriors and be filled with hope, adventure, life, discipline, strength, and true love. Don’t give in to the evil that has plagued your life for so long. Redeem yourself!

Letter from my sex addict:

Charlie, I have a problem. I don’t remember when it started, but I do know that my problem has gotten worse over the years. It started with curious wonder and ended up with uncontrolable desire and lust for more. I am weak, my eyes can’t look away, sometimes I get thoughts in my head that I can’t get out or images I need to see in detail. I need help. I need saving. I need salvation and redemption from this evil. I want to get rid of the images in my head and all the names I know. I want to become pure of heart again. I don’t want to be outcasted from my family or rejected from my friends, or lose my awesome girlfriend. I want true love, righteous feelings, and discipline to beat this thing. I want to live in the real world not the viral one. I want to enjoy real life pleasures and memories and not the ones on a computer screen. I want to wake up in the morning with no thoughts or searching for images or touching myself. I want to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day with God on my side. Please help me Charlie. Help me become the man I always wanted to be.
