Dear Friends,

I Wanted to share some of my feelings, last Thursday i had the opportunity to share my 4th step with God and my Bishop, it was a great experience, revealing not only my sin (he was already aware) but also my weakness, fear and resentments, I'm going to share this week with my sponsor as well.

I was a great spiritual experience and how gold and his servant love me, without judging me, although what I have done to myself during the last 20 years (I'm 30),
I feel so much hope.

I started this journey 1 year ago, with good results at the beginning and had a couple slips, I can re-joy now if my slips not because I have done it but I was able to learn from it, to be able to understand how strong I can become if I rely on god because I'm powerless in my own.

Today after church I Receive back my church privileged from my bishop, one year without any sacrament and anything else, I Was feeling like i was dis-fellowship but i was not, I realized how important the sacrament is, and how it is a blessing for me, how don't know how the future is, but I continue to commit my self each day to stay on the recovery path,

I received and I'm receiving so much help and comfort for all of you.

Thanks everyone

Your friend from Europe/Switzerland

thank you    
"It is always so nice to read positive and nice comment, sometime I feel we (I mean I) speak to much about the problem and not enough about the solution and the joy we can all have and will have."

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
