On The Verge Of Losing It All
11/18/2008 2:57:16 PM
Well here i go this is my first post and I am on the verge of losing everything that has ever mattered to me all because of my own selfish wants taking presedence. My beautiful wife and 3 beautiful kids they are fed up rightfully so.
I have tried so many times going all the way back to being 14 to 28 have been off and on this rollercoaster of drinking myself numb trying to escape reality to escape feeling guilty for not living the gospel then lying to cover it up because i was ashamed. All I ever wanted was to have a family and raise them in the gospel. I have to save my family otherwise i have failed. I know i have to see the bishop i know i have to repent but how do i really change and forgive myself so that i can move forward?


Hi Wilson,    
"Have you gone to AA? The ARP program is great but it's only once a week in my area. I needed to find good AA meetings for the other days. Go to 90 meetings in 90 days. If you don't particularly like the vibe of a certain meeting, try different ones until you've found ones you can bear. Get a sponsor and work the 12 Steps. It works. That is how I got sober. Good luck."

"I found a AA meeting as far as ARP its 100 miles to the nearest one and church is 50 miles."
