5 days now but....

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.

Five days is great and

Five days is great and you're venting spleen which is also great. My first week was difficult, difficult lemon difficult. I was extremely emotional, very tearful and angry. I felt like I was mourning in truth.

I can tell you that now, after nearly four weeks things are much better for me. I'm focused on important things like writing my book, looking after my body through a good diet and exercise. My relationship with my girlfriend is much better and I feel free and alive again.

I wish you luck with another five days and the next five after that and so on, but if it helps, even one more day is a fantastic step and one which takes you further from your nemesis.
