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."

"Nothing is beyond [Christ’s] redeeming reach or His encircling empathy. Therefore, we should not complain about our own life’s not being a rose garden when we remember who wore the crown of thorns! Having bled at every pore, how red His raiment must have been in Gethsemane, how crimson that cloak! No wonder, when Christ comes in power and glory, that He will come in reminding red attire, signifying not only the winepress of wrath, but also to bring to our remembrance how He suffered for each of us in Gethsemane and on Calvary!"

— Neal A. Maxwell
