The Journey Continues

Today was the last day of outpatient treatment. It was an uplifting experience. I am grateful for the support of the group and the positive energy that came from it. The challenge continues as I must apply what I've learned to my everyday living. I cannot fall into old habits; I cannot rationalize that I can return to that lifestyle and be happy. I cannot fail myself. The power to change lies and comes from within. The journey continues. Today, I will not drink. When tomorrow comes, I will deal with that.

Now the work continues with building my support mechanisms and realizing that I am NOT alone. There are people who love me and care for me. There are people I love and care about. Positive thoughts and positive change.

"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. "
