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

"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"

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
