thanks to justjohn, anonymous, and soberinsocal for a big, friendly welcome to the site. i am going to my first ARP meetings tonight, but I have been attending AA as well. Keep me in your prayers as I will keep all of you in mine.


That's great to hear!

Good for you!    
"I attend both as well and I've never had a drinking problem. I find they both provide good things. One of my good friends often says, "AA got me out of Hell and the LDS program is getting me to Heaven."

Wish you the best!"

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."

— Neal A. Maxwell
