First time I've seen this post...found it helpful even as a BS.....wise advice to unstick yourself from an unhealthy cycle. I have a son struggling with addiction....this would be great advice to him....sadly he must follow his own path.Thanks Maia!

rollercoaster, the path out of slavery is the same, doesnt matter what enslaves you. I will pray for your son. And for your heart.

Bump for justliving

Alot here and it's sooo much. I grew up a christian and fell from GOD for the past few years. It is something that I want to rectify in my life but am scared to deal with my GOD issues... Thanks for the reposting wincings_sparkle. Thanks Maia for taking the time to share so much. I know that SI is where I need to be. Will be a frequent reader of your advice.

Maia posted 5/23/2012 16:24 PM

hey justliving!

I'm on and off here depending on Life. but will make an effort to be on if someone asks ;-)

someone did.

will be praying for you. all issues usually end up being God. but it doesnt have to be that religious pie in the sky impractical-just-makes-you-guilty type of thing.

it can be really healing.

just take baby steps.

Thank you for posting for this newbie. I really, really needed to see this. Knowing that there is a withdrawal process and that the pain I am in is normal has been invaluable for me. I am at the very beginning of this process of ending A and seeing if R is possible. I need all the guidance I can get.

Maia posted 5/29/2012 09:30 AM

you are welcome dokta.

the choice is one you make daily, to End it. sometimes it is a choice you make minute by minute. It isnt a one time thing.

keep choosing to end it. it's only when you do that that you heal.

I loved this post so much when I first read it. I copied it and read it over and over. It was the first time I really felt that someone knew what it was like to be a WS and to offer real advice for someone who wanted so badly to do the right thing. Thank you Maia - I love all of your posts.
