If only we could all follow your admonition and keep reaching up, keep asking for help, and keep moving forward. What excellent advice.

When it comes to addiction recovery, it's OK to be selfish. Work on your own perception by using your chants, or singing a song, or whatever it takes to ease the pain of desire for whatever it is you are addicted to. It passes, and with every effort, with every tiny success, you gain more power over it.

If I may mention Satan in terms of personal destruction, Satan is a coward. If we stand firm he will always retreat. He meets us in our addiction and trys to suck us down into his own dark territory where he can speedily destroy us because he hates us. God in us is more powerful than Satan. Believe that. By trusting God, and reaching, asking, then moving forward, you will surely conquer whatever it is you are fighting against. It is a way of life, a daily exercise, and though there will be set backs, it is easy to return to, because the pay back is immediate, and once you recognize God's gifts, you begin to feel so loved, honored, respected for the individual you are. You begin to honor your own place in the harmony of the universe. There are many new beginnings. Each day can be one.
