Day 1

The blue box was oddly comforting.

Dad had been telling me for several weeks to begin going to a 12 step.

At first, I was around 90 days since relapsing and I thought I was cured, so I ignored him. He didn't even know if I had a problem, he was just telling me because he believes that everyone in the church should attend 12 step. I believed that the only reason I had gotten in to LDSBC was because I was pure, why did I need to waste my time on that?

But then I relapsed once. Two weeks later I relapsed again.
Several occurences later I find myself having had problems three times in two days.

Its time to take his advice I think. I wish I had gone earlier, this might have been prevented.

So here I am, Day 1.

Anyone know of a 12 step near LDSBC?

Soo glad you found this site.

Might I suggest reading the posts from people like Ruggaexpat, Hurtallover, Theyspeak, Chefdalet, 3 r's. and Paul. We have not seen Paul on here for a long time. I Pray for him as he was facing very bad news regarding possible cancer.

I mentioned the above men because they have done it right. Some of them have even been excommunicated. I have more respect for them because they chose their families over their addiction. I know it is hard and I know they struggle, but they are real men and you can learn alot from their words. I know there are others on here as well, but their names slip my mind at this time."

Go to and click on addiction recovery. Embrace step 1 and move on thru the steps. You do not need your Bishop to recommend your attendance. By step 5 and 6 you will be talking to him and will be better prepared to be totally honest with him and the Lord."
