Day 17

Things have been tough the last 48 hours or so. Sometimes it's mind blowing how long a few hours can seem. Sunday evening I felt like things were going pretty well as I shared at meeting. I surrendered my resentment toward my addictions and weakness that afternoon and noticed latter that the compulsion and obsession left me for the remainder of the day. Then it hit with a vengeance that night. I think it was that I was up to late. Late nights don't help when it comes to obsessive compulsive behavior for me. I felt like a lunatic. Anyway, I didn't uncork the champagne or look at porn but I fantasized/lusted a lot. I'm going to talk to my sponsor about possibly reseting my sobriety date.

Tonight was decent. Felt a little better after the meeting. It was good to hear that I'm not alone. That others struggle with the constant nagging of a bottomless pit.

Keep up the good work, theyspeak! You REALLY deserve recovery!"

"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
