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!

"Man has a dual nature; one, related to the earthly or animal life; the other, akin to the divine. Whether a man remains satisfied within what we designate the animal world, satisfied with what the animal world will give him, yielding without effort to the whim of his appetites and passions and slipping farther and farther into the realm of indulgence, or whether, through self-mastery, he rises toward intellectual, moral, and spiritual enjoyments depends upon the kind of choice he makes every day, nay, every hour of his life"
