and one from me
when going forward gets tough, its merely a sign that you are going uphill, just give more gas
put your sobriety first; before your wife, before your kids, before your avodas HaTorah (except for the 3 that are יעבור ואל יהרג) Without sobriety you won't have any of those things!

Actually, a question I've been wondering. What's the difference between saying Thank you or Karma. What is Karma for? Is there some great GYE protocol?

And one from me toooooooooooooooo!
הסיבה שיש דברים קשים העוברים עליך היא בגלל שהאדם חושב כי "אני עומד" שהוא מנהל הכל,
ברגע שיתן הכנעה כי השי"ת מנהיג הכל אז כבר אפשר להתמודד עם הקשיים. שמעתי מאדם גדול

If life is a LEMON make LEMONADE

Thank You Hashem for every moment of Sobriety!

I believe a thank you is for when you like a specific post, and karma is if someone makes you feel good in general.

Re: Tryin' 22 Mar 2015 15:11 #251007

First i would like to thank everyone for responding so quickly, responses with understanding and care . I apologize for underestimating the people at gye, i feel I'm in hell and i need to express my feelings through the addict mind. True i am an addict so i wouldn't know if my thinking, in this area, is objective. Anyway i went through a terrible fall last night. Again. This time i fell in a deep depression. I didn't get out of bed until 12:30 in the afternoon. That hasn't happened in a long time. I see mo light at the end of the tunnel. People express to me how much im loved yet o hate myself. I don't believe them
