You think I'm kidding, but I'm not

This addiction is robbing me of everything. Just when I think I'm going to be okay, itknocks me down again. I feel so suicidal. This is not good. Maybe there is no hope for me. I am a sex addict, by the way. And a very low-bottom drunk, at that.


Welcome! I'm glad Someone is here...

Hang in there    
Hang in there, you can change with the help of the Savior! Do you have a sponsor or someone to hold you accountable? that was big thing for me to begin to change. Realizing and admiting to myself that I was not alone that I had to be accountable and that in fact these challenges were not unique to me, that others had overcome them and there was a way to do it was really helpful. Have you contacted SA? SA is a great fellowship where you can get the support that you probably need to make the changes that you so badly want. Also realizing that this is a chemical fight you are fighting really heleped me put things in perspective. The is a great site that talks about this sort of challenge, that there is the mind, the body and the spirit that are involved in our challenges that by facing all three of these we can with the power of the Savior be healed, truly healed. It is possible. i am only 78 days sober, but what a world of difference these few days have made in my life. HANG IN THERE, it is worth it, it is so worth it! You with the power of the Savior can do this!"

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
