So I started using 3 years. I have been clean for 4 month clean from dope other stuff issues. I want to quite everything from dope and what everything brought with it. I was in gang life almost 2 yrs last part I almost died and badly abused. I lost myself bad. I felt dead emotional physical and spiritual died.

So I moved and you can say or a couple of months I was craving drugs and that life stile and lots and lots of food. I started to go back to church but I stop because I felt no body understand me except for god. I didn't give it and chance and most of it I don't want to leave behind but I came to this thought I came to improve I came because I wanted the change a new life. I hope I make new friends and let go of the past and move on and start a new beginning

Welcome    
"I was addicted to narcotics for eleven years. I got off them cold turkey. Not something I recommend to anyone. I've been clean for three years and I will never go back. One thing you've got to do is figure out what drove you to that life style in the first place. If you don't deal with the demons in your past, you may relapse. I finally dealt with my own demons (still an ongoing process) and it helped me to be at peace.

You must get a solid Gospel foundation. You must strengthen your testimony to withstand the adversary. I speak from experience. Go to your bishop and get a blessing for strength. It helps.

You can do this."

"Welcome. I understand what you said about on one getting you at church. Weirdly, the more people I talk to, the more I think we all feel that way. The only time I feel connected in fellowship with other Mormons is when I am at an ARP meeting. LOVE it there!

I just wanted to say welcome and send you encouragement on your recovery journey.
Maddy"

"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. "
