Today is Ash Wednesday, and so I'm challenging myself to stay away from PM for the next 40 days until Easter. Last year when I posted a similar message, I received some grief from folks who said that it was not wise to give myself an ending date like Easter, but I made it to Easter and well beyond that into the summer before I relapsed. Having a concrete goal like an abstention during Lent is beneficial for me, so please don't take that away from me. After all, what works for some people may not work for someone else. I just ask instead for your support and, if you are so inclined, your prayers that my Lenten journey will be fruitful, as I pray as well for all of you that your own recovery journeys will be fruitful. Thank you.
