Hello dear friends,

I have not been very active for many reason, but fortunately I Was doing better especially after my last relapse and I was able to regain some level of sobriety

I'm about to finish my step number 2, I feel better since the last couple weeks, I work with one of the member of my 12-step to get some accountability, it help a lot, I had a big issue with that and my therapist told me I should work on that otherwise I will keep falling in that same way.

I can feel that I have a better connection with my God although it is not always the same level every day, I still have a lot of feeling, such as loneliness, anxiety, angers but I can feel some how the day pass without acting out.

I have a big "issue", it is about the church and the way I feel when I'm there, I feel still so unworthy, I Can feel the love of my father in heaven but it does not mean that I receive the forgiveness of my sin, I refused to offer public prayer at church or anythings else, I don't feel I'm worthy enough to take the sacrement etc.. and I don't know along it will take, it is more related on the Sin side than addiction

Thanks everyone

"Hi, i have not seen any of your recent posts, but I am still glad to help... The best advice that i can give you is just talk to your bishop. I know it seems like a very uncomfortable position, but after it is over with, it feels like you are walking on air. I would do it 50 times and it would still be worth it in the long run.

"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! "
