Hello everyone,

I wanted to share that today I had a slip, I did masturbate after 1 month of sobriety, I had another one 3 month ago but this time I'm not feeling guilty or sad, of course I did a mistake but I still want to fight and continu in the right way, I started right away an inventory in order to correct and reset some of my bounderies in order to be prepare next time.

It is not easy but I have hope that the lord will help me to fight this addiction.

Thanks for your support

Thank you    
"Thank you, it is great to read your comments.
And as my sponsor told me, "Your best days are still ahead", I'm seeking for the real happiness but the path is long, and sometime I'm still a little bit angry to my self, because there is this duality, the addict and the other one, bu writing help me a lot.

I will try to help other as well, "

Recovery is a long road

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
