I love this site!! I am so grateful to know that I am not the only struggling with things like this in my life. I love all the support I get from all of you and that I am not judged! Thank you so very much! Because of this site I feel like there is light at the end of the tunnel. I know that my addiction isn't going to go away but that with the Lord's help and with all of you help I can get through this.
This past week I have done really good! Something that I has found to help me is not to be so focused on me and my problems but other people's. Go out and do service! Make someone smile! It seriously is So amazing! I love it! It helps me get my mind off of me and my addiction. I know that its th little things that make a difference! Reading my scriptures morning and night has been amazing! It makes it so mb isn't has big of an issue. I know I still get tempted but the closer I am to the Lord the better I get at resisting the carnal temptations.
I am not perfect, but if you need help try reading the Miracle of Forgiveness book or the Infinite atonement by Tad R. Callister. They both are amazing and are opening up my eyes to the truth. I kjnow that there is still going to be hard days for all of us. But we can do this :D :D Hope you are having a fabulous week! Just know He is truly there. :D

HELPME,    
"What a beautiful blog! This site has helped me out a lot as well, and the advice I get here means the world to me. Thanks to the people on this site, I was able to have the confidence to believe in recovery, gain sobriety, and gain the self-worth I needed to get in a relationship with my incredible girlfriend (Thanks, Beclean!).

I love the fact that there is hope. As I gain more and more clean time from my addiction, I feel more hope everyday. The source of this hope is faith in the Lord. I know He is willing to help us overcome our weaknesses, because He has kept me clean for the last 83 days.

I also enjoy the Infinite Atonement. That book really helped me understand more about the spiritual side of recovering from addiction. Recovery boils down to giving up and letting Christ take over.

Thanks for posting this. It's nice to reply to blogs when people are having trouble, but it's also cool to read positive blogs. Keep up the good work!"

"Now, my brothers and sisters, let not Jesus’ redemption for us stop at the immortalizing dimension of the Atonement, “the loosing of the bands of death”. Let us grasp the proffered gift of eternal life! We will end up either choosing Christ’s manner of living or His manner of suffering! It is either “suffer even as I”, or overcome “even as [He] … overcame”. His beckoning command is to become “even as I am”. The spiritually settled accept that invitation, and “through the atonement of Christ,” they become and overcome! "

— Neal A. Maxwell
