More and more aware

I am new to honesty. I am new to looking at myself with a desire to discover how entangled I am. I realize more and more how addicted I have become through thebcourse of my life and how much my actions reflect those of an addict. I wouldn't be surprised ifnthe only person I've been fooling is myself.

I am looking forward to my support meeting. The opportunity for more honesty with myself the Lord and my group. I had a strong break through last night and made it. I'm feeling a little off right now but I am going to focusing and praying for the strength and understanding I recieved last night. Being sober without withdrawal pains feels so good!

"Being honest with ourselves truly is easier said than done, as many things in this life which sometimes makes that cliche statement only an annoying reminder that becoming a better person is very difficult. I'm looking forward to making a personal inventory this Saturday while fasting in order to spiritually prepare me for the next step. You could say that I've been preparing myself for years to recover, but now I'm in the wonderful time of being engaged to a true angel.

Remember that there are many that depend on you to overcome this. Attending a recovery group will be an instrumental factor in being able to rely on others in putting off the natural man. Congratulations on making it this far as recognizing the issue and getting out to a support group seems to be one of the hardest things at first. Continually remind yourself how amazing you are, even if it is simply to put little notes around the house with scriptures or words of inspiration. Stay strong!"

"Being honest is essential to recovery. Being able to look at the reality of your situation is important. I hope you really enjoy your support meeting. I love my ARP meeting. I missed it this week because of snow. :( Sobriety is a great feeling. Keep it up!"

" Is it possible to reclaim a life that through reckless abandon has become so strewn with garbage that it appears that the person is unforgivable? Or what about the one who is making an honest effort but has fallen back into sin so many times that he feels that there is no possible way to break the seemingly endless pattern? Or what about the person who has changed his life but just can't forgive himself?The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us. His Atonement is infinite. It applies to everyone, even you. It can clean, reclaim, and sanctify even you. That is what infinite means—total, complete, all, forever. "
