Re: Faith in Recovery

Blind Faith,

Hi ! I read your thread and it's saying you really want to have faith- you are unsure of the faith.

I have a suggestion.. write down 15 things that negatively impacted your life or the life of your kids or the lifes of others as a result of your drug use.
Then read them to someone else, someone actively in the program.

What I did was realized "my way" of doing things were not working for me. I could not handle taking the recomended dosage of meds.

Then I looked at somehow "a power greater than myself" saved me from getting in a wreck, losing my job, keeping pretty good health except for my back.

For me, step 4- making a moral inventory showed me MY part in my resentments. Where did I set myself up in a position to be hurt.

Then I did my fifth step with another, and It made me feel good in my own skin for the first time in forever.

Realizing there is a power greater than yourself is the 1st step to living happy again. (And free of drugs)
