Upward and Onward

Having a great time here - never thought I'd be saying that right now anyway. But since I have taken the first steps towards recovery I have been feeling lighter - as if a burden has been lifted. No, I'm not getting a false since of security or being bold in my accomplishment - I'm just enjoying the feeling of being free of the feelings I have had bent up inside me for years -- the secrets coming out, no longer having to hide and be a Dr Jekyl to some and a Mr Hide to others -- recovery is going well - started on Step 4 last night, that's going to take some time -- not really sure how to go about creating this moral inventory, but I will put it together and see where I go from there.

It's good to see others still out here, got a few replies, you all are awesome and I totally appreciate everything and anything you might be able to contribute for me.

To Gondor: please be strong brother - you are so young and so on top of your addiction - to even have the desire to change at your age just shows your nobility as a son of God! This is your time, your day - seize it my young brother!

Power in Purity!

"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. "
