Lesson 1
A
1-As many others have stated, I am ready to commit to an active recovery to end the repetitive and destructive cycle I have been in.
2-I know this will be a struggle for me. Sometimes it’s hard to look past what I have done and the consequences of those actions.
3-I am usually a patient person, so I believe I can allow enough time for change to take place. I did not get into this overnight, so I know I won’t overcome it quickly.
B
I want to have a closer relationship with my wife.
I want to improve myself as a person.
I want to be able to focus on more positive things in my life.
I want to be able to have time to focus on other things in my life.
I want to spend more time with my family.
I want to be able to be trusted again.
I want to look forward to having more good days.
I want to be free from this addiction.
I want to have a closer relationship with God.
C
Although the picture does bring back memories of a more innocent time, it also evokes memories of early deceptive behavior. But mostly it reminds me of a time when this were simpler, less complicated.

Lesson 2
To have a close relationship with my wife that is real. To be able to heal together despite what I have done in the past. To focus more on my family. To be able to spend more time outside and on the farm but not to the detriment of my family. To have a closer relationship with God.

Hello dgst
and welcome to RN a proven roadmap for recovery
Quote:
I am ready to commit to an active recovery

words easily said
now prove it, not to me not to this community but to yourself


If you really do want to improve your life and remove those self inflicted shackles of addiction and to recover from your emotion driven compulsive behaviours then you are at a good place to make that a reality, RN can show you the way
To achieve recovery then 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, this community is supportive to those who demonstrate sincerity in their journey
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, you have not been abandoned

the path is long and difficult but it is well proven and you are not alone, many have taken the path sucessfully, your actions are yours but you are not the first and unfortunately will not be the last
we usually suggest completing about 3 lessons a week but spending time every day posting , reading, evaluating and putting into practice what you have learned, be open be honest, nobody here will judge you
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

Now lesson two
your vision for your life, in two lines????????????

all good things but what about the many other things that could be included?
perhaps
health, hobbies, security, happiness, religion, fun, fitness,
also a few how's why's and when's can be useful

coach Mel wrote a "how to " for preparing a vision, it can be found in this forum
perhaps have a read and consider adding to your vision :pe:

good luck
