Step 1 - Key Principle — Admit that you, of yourself, are powerless to overcome your addictions and that your life has become unmanageable.
I realized I had no power when it was last month. I prayed for help then I had this thought take missionary discussions. The relief society and bishop thought it was a good idea so I took them and seeing my bishop. When I relized I had a problem bishop told me it was and excuse to keep doing what I am doing.Latter I started to loose my postive friends. Because of drama. Which hurts worse because of the fact I knew them for two years. And they want to help me help myself. Which I am still trying to figure out.

"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. "
