PRAISE GOD

I know that I have been very fickle in my thinking lately, one minute I am feeling good and the next I am wanting to go back to the doc and get more pills. This morning I was reading my Bible and I came upon a verse about The Holy Spirit being in those who are believers. This sudden and wonderful feeling came over me when I read that verse. I realized that The Holy Spirit is in me and it is more powerful than anything, including addiction. I have to say that I had immediate relief. I know that this is one day at a time, but I also have faith and know that as long as The Spirit is living in me, I can do this. I know that everyone out there can as well! Thanks for everyone on this forum and for all of your help, it has been a extreme blessing. I am leaving for vacation tomorrow, and I know I will have a great time, without the pills!

I dont preach, but i do agree with you.....the fluctuations in feelings are quite normal and part of the w/d process - you are handling it well - you realize that you cant do it alone. But all things are possible with God (your higher power - I am not particular)..........have a great vacation!

Thanks very much! Hopefully I was not sounding preachy, that was not my intent!

No worries, mate. You didnt sound "preachy" but you did make a valid cosmic observation. Your intent was spotless - and much needed in this world. Thanks for sharing it.....
