How to turn a close call into a relapse
Matt, a friend of mine over at EmbracingPowerlessness.com, offers great insight to the insanity of addiction. Click the link above to read more.
Had it not been for the great friends I’ve made in the addiction recovery program, I would have ended today with numerous “close calls” and ultimately in relapse remorse. For the first time in my recovery, God answered my prayers of surrender with a simple instruction: “Call someone.” Of course, I struggled with the thought (“Oh wretched man that I am!”), but the Lord gave me the faith to obey Him.
Because of Him, and through my friends in recovery, I end today with a grateful heart knowing that I am powerless, God is not, and my only hope is to trust Him.

Addiction makes me stupid.
I’m sitting here struggling, dying, pleading for help. I just don’t know what to do. And what does God tell me to do?
That’s it? That’s the answer? But that’s so simple. Why didn’t I think of that?
Because addiction makes me stupid.
Thanks for the mention brother.
Well said! I agree.
