I’ve used addictions all my life to hide from the difficulties I was facing. The thing about addiction is, it doesn’t work. After the high, the rush, the escape, you are still faced with yourself and there’s no one that can fix you until you decide you want to be fixed. It’s hard to pick yourself up after you’ve fallen and made such a mess of everything. The good news is, I don’t have to build my new life by myself. I have lots of help.

Today I get up with the help of all the resources God has provided for me. I don’t have to do it alone.
