I had a rough night last night not feeling well...I was up every half hour..and I remember a movie we watched as a family...The movie is called Fireproof..and it a christian is one awesome movie and I am now going to do whatever it takes to show my wife how much I love my wife. I so miss the courting and love I have for her. She means the world to me and I need to show her instead of just saying it...I have been working on changing and yet I havent changed the one thing that means the world to me..I need to have my wife fall in love with me all over again, and I need to to fall in love with her all over again with her too...

She is one incredible woman and I know her patience levels sometimes gets very thin. I know she questions why Heavenly father put her in this trial with me. I know she has prayed about our marriage and has felt the spirit to stay in it. So I need to do my part to make this work and stop using my addiction as a crutch.

I have quit drinking a long time ago...COLD TURKEY...I just made my mind up to do it and never looked back. So now it is time to dig down deep and to do it one more time. I know that I can do this and to have the spirit with me continually.

I am so glad I am married to the greatest woman on the planet.. I love you babe and I want you to be proud of me again one day.......


Keep it up!    
"Fireproof is awesome! I have the Love Dare book. Pretty cool book. :)

Sounds like you realize the value in your wife and you have the fight in you. Keep it up! :)

Having trouble sleeping sounds like you are having symptoms of withdrawal. You will make it! Find love for yourself. Find out what you like about yourself and build on that. Keep negative thoughts at bay. All they do is feed the addiction's power. Your wife obviously sees what is special in you as she's staying with you for the fight. :)"

"Each one who resolves to climb that steep road to recovery must gird up for the fight of a lifetime. But a lifetime is a prize well worth the price. This challenge uniquely involves the will, and the will can prevail. Healing doesn’t come after the first dose of any medicine. So the prescription must be followed firmly, bearing in mind that it often takes as long to recover as it did to become ill. But if made consistently and persistently, correct choices can cure. "
