Lucky 13

13 weeks ago was my last prn binge. I don't know how I managed it but I prayed. I prayed for help, guidance, anything to release me from my addiction. So far so good, but I am not out of the woods yet. I have come to the realization that staying clean requires that I am vigilant every day. Like Brigham Young said. The faithful must fight every for a place in the celestial kingdom.

I draw strength from everyone here. Even those who fall because it humanizes us all. We are all fallen and we all make mistakes but the important thing is that we try to do our best and keep moving.

Peace.

keep it up    
"congrats buddy - I feel the same way when I think about being sober for # months. I am just so grateful to God for His help and grace and pray we can continue to be humble enough to seek it out each day. Keep up the good work.

Try and add another thing to your recovery now to mix things up and give you one more safety belt to hang on to. Sometimes that's great when we hit a milestone to keep us in the right direction."

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "
