I want to talk again about a concept which I posted earlier in a different thread, because I feel it is a powerful concept that is essential in recovering and it is the concept of "ONE DAY AT A TIME". We've all been in this situation where we set long desired goals for abstinence i.e I wan't to quit for the next 1 month, or 3 months or 6 months etc. Though it's not bad to set such goals the problem is you keep thinking too much into the future instead of focusing all your efforts and energy in the present. Instead we can all try this different strategy where we wake up everyday in the morning with positive energy and promise ourselves and to God that we will not let our guard down for the day. That's right it seems a lot easier when you say everyday when you wake up, "Today I will stay strong" rather than to say for the next 3 months or so "I will stay strong". Otherwise think of the journey of healing and recovery as small steps that add up to deliver you to freedom. I hope we all gain the strength to overcome our weakness.
