Hello everyone,

I just wanted to give you an update regarding my situation, I'm working with my sponsor and I have been able to day sober the last 3 weeks since my last relapse, of course I was very sick the last weeks and I had the opportunity to review my life in details, to see what I really want.

I had a great opportunity to share my story at my 12-step group meeting, it was amazing, and good stop to forgive my self from what I have done in the past especially when I was young.

I'm working hard to overcome this addiction, my daily activity are more enjoyable, I feel that when I pray I get more hope and desire.
Meeting with my bishop and therapist are an amazing tool as well but at the end only my lord will help me to get out of it.

It is great to share my feeling and hope with you

Enjoy the life

Your friend from europe


Encouraged by your post    
I am encouraged by your post and the amount of time you have given yourself over the past 3 weeks to look at your life "soberly". I will be praying for your restful sleep this evening across the continent.

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "
