Today is day 2. I was up late last night reading posts from my amazing siblings (you) and I took some of ya'lls advice! Even knowing that I was probably going to be stupid, I prayed. For the first time in a long while, and I prayed as though our Father was right here and I just told Him how I felt and what I wanted in the end. I remember something my therepist said about trying to sleep, as i don't sleep well (which aids in my addiction) and one of the things that was suggested was that I have some back ground noise. So, I got a cd of my favorite Cellest out (Steven Sharp Nelson) and played it on repeate all last night. Steven Sharp Nelson is also a member of the church and this disk (Sacred Cello) has many hymns on it. I haven't slept this peacefully in a long time!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! You all have helped me and blessed me so much, and this is only my second day!!!!



"That's great! Distractions can definitely help. Something that is starting to help me (I've only been on this site for a couple weeks now) is changing up my routine. Instead of resorting to the computer when I can't sleep, or checking my facebook, yadayada... If I read a book, play a video game, or phone a friend, I'm not only more distracted, but I'm realizing it makes me happier too. :) I'm glad you're getting better sleep!

"Don’t live your life in despair, feeling sorry for yourself because of the mistakes you have made. Let the sunshine in by doing the right things—now. It may be difficult to begin, but pick up the scriptures and immerse yourself in them. Look for favorite passages. Lean on the Master’s teachings, on His servants’ testimonies. Refresh your parched soul with the word of God. The scriptures will give you comfort and the strength to overcome. "
