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. :)"

"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. "
