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    
"Mike,
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.

Sober Focus"

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
