Surrender
Question: 
What am I afraid of about the concept of surrender, if anything? What convinces me that I can't use successfully anymore?

the main thing that convinces me that i cant use sucessfully anymore is the fact that i dont like who i became when i was using. i lied to everyone around me including those whom i loved the most.

i am currently 7 days away from being 2years clean and sober.

i work an aa programme and imlucky my sponsor lets me include other addictions.

How to conquer my fear

I didn't know I needed to. I was to much making arrangements to make a daily planner. Just so I wouldn't have free time on my hands so when I quit it wouldn't be so hard on me. Then I started to read that fear was a big contributor to forcing people into relapse. And it all made perfect sense to me and as I sat back to listen to my thoughts , I heard myself scared of different things as well. I realized I too was scared of my fear. I feared fear also. And if I didn't face my fear then I was going to have minimal results in effort given.

10 ways my life has become unmanageable due to drugs and alcohol

Unmanageability
Question: 
Custom question

1. I couldn't take care of my kids
2. I couldn't pay my bills
3. I couldn't keep a job
4. I couldn't feed myself
5. I couldn't stop doing drugs or drinking alcohol
6. I couldn't stop making drugs

I'm still chained with my own shackles of addiction.

This is my first time posting. I'm not sure if I'm doing this right either. So excuse me if I'm wrong. 
I've never been to a NA meeting. I want to go but am scared to go alone. I know until I do then ill never get a sponsor nor will I find my recovery. Yes, I'm still an active user. I don't want to be. I miss my 14 month old daughter and want to see and hold her. I'm tired of being a slave to heroin.

How am I powerless

The disease of addiction
Question: 
What does "the disease of addiction" mean to me?

  The disease of addiction means to me to never have another easy day. To never have another day free from thinking about getting and using drugs. The disease of addiction is like a death sentence to me.

Step One

Hi there,

 

Im G and I'm an alcoholic. Im ten weeks sober and trying to begin to work the steps. I've been in AA for 7 months and have always rushed into choosing a sponsor. I don't want to make the same mistake this time. So I want to start on my own. Does anyone have any advice on how I can do this without a sponsor for a while?

 

Thanks

My powerlessness

Step Number: 
Topic: 
Powerlessness
Question: 
Over what, exactly, am I powerless?

Powerless from getting myself out of this deep black hole.

No control over thinking I need a substance to make me feel better

loss of control from doing what I say and doing what I say

To be continued....

Step 1

My name is Michael and I am a compulsive overeater. There is no longer any question that I am powerless over my disease, and my life has become (long ago) unmanageble. I don't want to hide anymore. I don't want to seclude. I don't want the dark.

Who is in the mirror?

I find myself looking inward over the past few days, and to be honest I have no idea who I am seeing in the mirror.  I see an adict, a lyer, thief, and many other horrible things.  Finally reaching the point of being sick and tired, and wanting to see my old self again I called my doctor today and for the first time, I admitted to having a problem and to see what options I have.  After a bit I found out they will send me to a outpatient clinic where I will be given medication to help with the problem, also I will attend meetings, drug test, and even a shrink to help with other issues which
