I feel horrible. I was on day three of sobriety. I came down to read my scriptures and I got on my iPod and started looking up things that I shouldn't have. I don't understand why I have to go through this. I don't know why I can't stop falling into temptation. I can't even make it a week without messing up. I want to get back up and keeping going but what's the point if I'm just going to fall again. I don't like the roller coaster that this life is. I don't know why people want to be a teenager again. It sucks and I feel like its not going to get any better. Nothing is helping. I don't want these addictions anymore I feel so bad for the people who fall and struggle. I admire those people with will power, I am told I have some but I really dont

Don't give up    
"You are not pathetic. You are human. The only human that could overcome on their own was Jesus. And that is because he is God's Son.

I don't have enough will power but I've learned to let go and let God. I read in the Miracle of Forgiveness this quote from an older man to the youth, "Tell them to keep their lives so full of good works that there will be no room for evil." (pg 146)

I encourage you to fill your life with good things. I encourage you to talk to your priesthood leader, attend a support group, and read good literature. I recommend the scripture (of course), the ARP manual, the SA white book, and the Miracle of Forgiveness.

Don't let this addiction take over your life."

"If, through our unrighteous choices, we have lost our footing on that path, we must remember the agency we were given, agency we may choose to exercise again. I speak especially to those overcome by the thick darkness of addiction. If you have fallen into destructive, addictive behaviors, you may feel that you are spiritually in a black hole. As with the real black holes in space, it may seem all but impossible for light to penetrate to where you are. How do you escape? I testify the only way is through the very agency you exercised so valiantly in your premortal life, the agency that the adversary cannot take away without your yielding it to him. "
