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!

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
