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.

"Lucifer will do all in his power to keep you captive. You are familiar with his strategy. He whispers: “No one will ever know.” “Just one more time.” “You can’t change; you have tried before and failed.” “It’s too late; you’ve gone too far.” Don’t let him discourage you. When you take the path that climbs, that harder path of the Savior, there are rewards along the way. When you do something right, when you resist temptation, when you meet a goal, you will feel very good about it. It is a very different kind of feeling than you have when you violate commandments—an altogether different feeling. It brings a measure of peace and comfort and provides encouragement to press on. "
