Well i've been sober for 5 days, or at least that's what I think. Once you get rid of your console and games, you feel so good, you feel less tired, more calm, everything looks so clear, but I'm just cheating myself because now I'm shifting all that energy I spent in vids to other addictions that haunt me, what a TOUGH process this is, now i realize that to overcome my vid addiction, I have to simultaneously beat all my other addictions; because in the end, their nature, their origin is the same, it's like fighting a legion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gadarenes).
But faith heals all, faith in God if you believe in him, but most importantly faith in yourself. Forgiving ourselves is the first step (don't know how to do that though), learning to love ourselves, to help ourselves. You might say I'm selfish, but how can one help others if we can't even help ourselves.
Remember that airplane warning which says that in case of cabin pressure loss, first put your oxygen masks on, and later help the ones next to you?, well i read that when this happens, you have 10 seconds to put your mask on, otherwise you will faint, and it doesn't matter how much you want to help your loved ones, what can you do if you lose consciousness?
I know I'm digressing from the main topic but, I felt i had to share this with you guys.
Hope it helps.
