A boatload of meetings

So, I'm still having difficulties maintaining zero contact with my former affair partner, Greg. Lately, I've been going to a boatload of meetings to try to help myself maintain zero contact with him. Husband isn't seeming too happy about all of these meetings, but he is being tolerant of them. But I am also trying to work the program so I can be sober, since this is an inside-out sort of program.

Not sure if I should quit one of the meetings, though, because there is a foxy man in there. Not sure how to handle it. Maybe I should not wear my contacts or maybe go to another meeting. Hmmm.

Also, I'm really frustrated with my work because 2 different dudes have tried asking me to act out with them. I just told them I'm not living my life in that way and I told the latest dude to keep away from me. For Rude about these questions. Boo.

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
