Remodeling Our Way of Life

by Dov (See all authors)

To someone who writes that he finds it much easier to stay clean when feeling close to Hashem, Dov writes:

If feeling on a spiritual high is something you are dependent on, then I fear that when trials and tribulations come - and since the cheit of Adam Harishon and Chava every human has down time, pain, and even some tragedy in their lives - what will you do? The Recovery that I am familiar with is a slow, patient, G-d-involved, comprehensive remodeling of my way of reacting to life. It's about staying sober one day at a time and learning how to accept life on life (or G-d's) terms rather than strictly on mine. That enables me to remain sober one day at a time.
