    Unfortunately I have relapsed on day 31. I truly regret it. Weird thing is I didn't even enjoy it. It definitely was not worth it. Will have to start again. I had made it to Elf. But now back to square one. I am an Orc again.

    Hi all. I failed again. I am very embarrassed, not because of the fall, but because I realize I just haven't been taking this seriously lately. I'm not sure what needs to change that I have the power to change at the moment. There must be something.

    Anyway, I'll probably refrain from posting for a few days and only lurk around here. I need to figure out what I need to change or get rid of in my life. I want to take this seriously again so that I'm not wasting time and space here with my posts.

    I'm going to win in the long run. I just need to figure out how.

    Be strong out there.

    Congratulations @CLaYFiRC I finally made it to Urah-Kai status this morning so I am thrilled. I guess we both leveled up today?



    Day 6-Urah-Kai @RiseToGreatness

    I never got around to posting yesterday due to being super busy, but my urges have luckily been under control making for an easy 6 days. I know it is bound to get harder around day 8 or 10 as it usually does, but I know that I can beat this!

    Also, I got up at 5:30-5:40AM this morning and I have been pretty productive at this point. I decided to apply to some of the PhD programs I am interested in for Fall 2021 because none of them require the GRE this year due to COVID-19. I want to apply to University of Chicago, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Northwestern University, UC-Berkeley, UW-Madison, UW-Milwaukee (for a Master’s), and CalTech. Application fees will cost between $555-630.

    I emailed the 6 PhD programs that I am interested in and I ave already heard back from Berkeley, though it was a rather generic response. Anyway, I will be a week clean in about 7 hours, so I cannot wait!

    Best,
    Mathman1994

    Yes! I’ve officially made it to Day 100!

    I’m feeling so hopeful about the future! But I know I’m not out of the woods yet. Gotta keep focused and moving forward.

    Thanks for checking in @Johnthesavage! It means a lot!

    Once more I am one day clean after a relapse. I went to worship God with my church small group tonight. Tonight at small group it dawned on me why I have felt uncomfortable around the rest of them. It's because they don't really know about my addiction and they have only seen my best side. It's not like my best side is a lie but they don't see all of me. I know another thing I want with this project of becoming as clean as I can. I want my best side to be my only side. I want to be the best individual I can and bring glory to God.
