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."

"The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape. Suppose a storm is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you. Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of the gospel and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of life. "
