First and foremost, I am committed to this process of recovery. I'm 100% in. And I understand there will be good days and not so good days, but starting today, I'm prepared and willing to do the work. The hard work. The roll-up your sleeves and dig-in work. It's time, and I am ready.

My vision: The Internal Me

I am a person who lives in reality. I live in the moment of now, without falsehood or fantasy. I understand the truth of the moment and accept what is real. When there are occurrences where I feel rejected or injured by another's inability to accept the genuine me, I stay strongly committed to the vision of my life, and refuse to slip into a world where if only I was perfect I would be accepted. I am kind to myself, and defend myself whenever I hear an internal critical voice by refuting its claims with words of love and compassion. I am proud of who I am. I am also clear about who I am. I live with the humble wherewithal that I will never reach my full potential. And yet, everyday I get own every minute of it. I go forward in life knowing I cannot turn back the hands of time, but it doesn't matter because I experience every moment as it actually happened. For me, there is no; could of, should of, would of because I exhaust each day knowing that I am always working towards the best version of myself. And at the ed of the day I am grateful that this is my life and no one else's. I own it 100% and I refuse, I f*cking refuse to relinquish it to any person, place or thing.

The External Me:

I am a defender for the voiceless. For the downtrodden. For the abused. I recognize that my morals and beliefs never sway, they cannot be broken, nor can I. I help my family, friends, acquaintances and those in need with positive and loving care. Care that does not have rules or expectations. When I say, yes, it means yes. When I say no, it means no. I am committed to agreements because I want to do them. I am an inclusive person with open hands. I do not shun or gossip about others so that I can be the leader of the pack. Instead I recognize people's strengths and raise the awareness of their talents to others so that they may shine. I forgive and forget when wronged. I live with the truest of good intentions and encourage others to do so as well. I am fair. I am honest. I am loving. I am altruistic. I am talented. I am helpful. I am warm. I am supportive. I am intelligent. I am humorous. I am, 100% me.

I accept who I am, physically and mentally. I have the strength and tenacity to do the work. I have created a life full of loving people who always encourage me to make my good, better. And everyday, I live a life without regret because I am not scared to bet on myself. In fact, the best decision I ever made in my life was saying, I'm all in...and I won.

I do hope so , waiting to see

If you really do want to improve your life and to recover from your addiction then you are at a good place to make that wish reality
Commit , fully and completely
work through the lessons and understand them , if you miss something ask on the help forum , assistance is always on hand
coaches and mentors are likely to drop by occasionally but if not, don't worry as this is generally a good indicator that you are on the right path

the path is long and difficult but it is well proven and you are not alone
we usually suggest completing about 3 lessons a week but spending time every day posting and reading
get to know your addiction and see yourself with honesty and openness

remember to work at your own pace and its not a race indeed some consider recovery to be a journey rather than a destination

you will get there when you get there if you want to get there

I would like to see your reasons for change these should be positive and about you, they are important because as you note there will be bad days along the way
reasons for change remind us of why we are here where we was and where we want to be
remember the only person that can make these changes is you, so the hard work needs to come from you
looking forwards to reading your posts and wishing you all the best

then you must be doing this elsewhere?

whatever you choose please do remember that you do have choice even when the addiction tells you that you dont
good luck either way
