Hello Everyone,

I didn't came since a while, I had some difficult moment but I'm still working on my issue.

As I started the new year I realized the plan and progress I Wanted to make last year regarding my addiction was not that good or in other word I did not progress fast enough, of course this is wrong and I see only the glass half empty, I start my recovery journey in march last year , I loose a lot but I gain some great knowledge, I fella couple times but I'm still on the recovery path.

Life is not easy and quick and fast solution are not for long term solution,
I guess i was able to learn that this month

Thanks all of you and have a great week

I've learned that lesson too    
"I've been trying to recover for the past five or six years, and I have gone months at a time and a year at a time clean. I've been going through the steps for the first time and have come to realize that the only way I will be able to overcome this for good is to completely turn my life over to Christ. To accept his enabling power which comes through the Atonement to help me change, not only to help me change my behaviors, but to help me change my heart as well- just as the Anti-Nephi-Lehis in the Book of Mormon. I have always wondered how they could change their whole lives around so quickly, and it was because they had faith in Jesus Christ, and loved him and Heavenly Father so much they allowed the Atonement to work in their lives- redemption power as well as the enabling power to change. It doesn't mean I will change over night, but it means my heart will continually change a little bit at a time until I have become as He is as I strive to do as He asks of me."

"Brothers and sisters, stay on the straight and narrow path. No, stay in the middle of the straight and narrow path. Don't drift; don't wander; don't dabble; be careful. Remember, do not flirt with evil. Stay out of the devil's territory. Do not give Satan any home-field advantage. Living the commandments will bring you the happiness that too many look for in other places. "
