My other addiction.

Doctrine and Covenants 89:9 — And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly.

Doctrine and Covenants 89:18 — And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones;

Doctrine and Covenants 89:19 — And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures;

Doctrine and Covenants 89:20 — And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint.

Doctrine and Covenants 89:21 — And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen.

So, aside from my sexual addiction my other "drug" is coffee. I've never had any issues with any other part of the word of wisdom, I've quit them without any side effects or issues. But, for some reason coffee is the thing that's hard for me to quit. The headache alone was nearly unbearable, but now since I drank coffee for such a long time while I was away from the Church my body got use to the Caffeine high and now that I've haven't had any Caffeine it feels that my body is trying to adjust back to normal which means that I'm tired most days and the mornings are very nearly impossible to wake up. I love the path that I'm on. It's difficult at times when I'm hit on both sides with both addictions, but I know I'm on the path the Lord wants me on.

Thanks for "listening".

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
