Slippery Slopes! Watch out! 16 Mar 2010 10:15 #58389

hi -

DovInIsrael, here.

I've been lurking in the background on GYE. Too much overstimulation sets me off.
After completing Duvid Chaims 12-step program ...was doing pretty well for awhile.

Decided 90-days was too much for me...and a false sense of security.
Instead decided I could do one-day, and do it every day for life.

But I was not watching my step - and the mighty rapids of Nisson seem to have caught me, and I slipped.

At least it seems like I am in good company - seems like a few others have also recently slipped. We need a sign - WARNING SLIPPERY SLOPES ahead.

Enough blabber.

With all do respects - you guys are great, and I'd love to hagng out wiht everyone who is also down here in the muck..but, I've ben here before and don't particularly like it. I'm planning on climbing out.
Lets help each other ... together we can do it!


Anyone else want out?

Hey DovInIsrael,

Kudos on the honesty!

I've been quoting you a lot in the chizuk e-mails of the last few days. Do you get them?

You've definitely got what it takes.

Keep inspiring us!

bard:

it did not help...

I felt like I was starting to spin (but not spin -out-of -control, yet)

I felt like I was being pulled down the drain...

tried a different tactic -

rather than just be a spectator in my life - I decided to be a participant...

and I put a cover over the drain !!

duh!


why did'n't I think of that before.

B"H - the 12-steps are the only thing that has worked till now..

Dov I am in the mud also. Got knocked by the winds of bain hazimanim. Doing bad stuff (the stuff is bad I am not, there are other parts of me and on some level I want to change). Things that could cause me to hate myself and doing things in ways that eat up my day and make me zonked the next day.

Do you know what I am talking about?

You ask if someone else wants to get out with you and I think that is me.

Lets start with a Lachaiyim and admit that this is not how we want to live our lives.

holy yid -

my holy brother!

hope you enjoyed Pesach.

the haggadah tells us we each have an obligation to see our selves as though we ourselves went out from Mitzrayim.

B"H for addictions - now we have a background against which to place our FREEDOM!!!

lets be FREE, together! !!!

Wow! First we are having trouble not drowning in the rapids, and next thing you know we are "fighting" over who will get together with whom, to help us climb out of 'em! This is really something!

Fellow Dov! If that's not gold, what is?

Admin put these lines here cuz he likes 'em:
"The heart needs to be broken when will-power is not enough"
"Get off the 18-Wheeler and onto a tricycle!"
"The heck with me, what can I do for you?"
"I do not particularly care exactly which "lav" suicide is. I'm not interested in it for other reasons!"
