I thank you and Hashem thanks you

by Shoshana (See all authors)

Greetings,

I joined your mailing list a couple of weeks ago. I am very happy that I visited and signed up.

I have been in a 12 step, AA for many years and was "familiar" with SA. I can't tell you how much this site has helped me. I too have been on Facebook and there is a lot of inappropriate behavior there.

I am not Orthodox yet but live in a Reform Jewish household. I have been slowly becoming more observant though Chabad, and this site has helped me a great deal. You just have no idea!!!!

There are many times through the day when I will say, "Guard ur Eyes"

I thank you and Hashem thanks you... and you are saving families!

 

Shoshana's first post on the forum:

I am new here. I have 9 years of continuous sobriety in AA. I am almost 50 and separated now. I was married to a non-Jew for 18 years.

If I didn't have my AA recovery, I wouldn't be here trudging this road. My recovery has given me the courage to want and demand more out of myself. That is why I am separated and will get a divorce. I want to become observant and eventually have a observant, clean partner.

I do know that Hashem wants only what is best for all of us in everything: our food, our thoughts, our actions. I am like so many others that want the "love" from another person, and we easily get confused from what others will throw our way.

So many times we are too ill with our disease to receive any blessings, or to see them.

I know that today I am responsible, and I have the ability to change what is going on. I know that I have the "choice" to act out or not, to use or not to use. It is really up to me. This forum is a wonderful opportunity for me to truly and finally feel good about myself. Facebook and the other so called social networks are breeding grounds for the disease.

I know that I have "today".... One day at a time.

Praise be Hashem for this site. Thank you!
