My Life Today Sober

Warning! This is a hugely unorganized stream of my thoughts!!                       ` I don’t want to do anything. I don’t want to read the bible, or write in Recovery Princess.

I am Second..A Great Celebrity Recovery Website

Just found this website and I have only had a chance to look over it really briefly. I found it through ‘The Christian Post‘ whilst reading about one of my favorite Christian singers ‘ Michael W.

Sobriety Bible…Psalm 9

I love this psalm right now. David speaks of the Lord favoring him over his enemies. He talks of the justice the Lord gives out.

Sobriety Bible…Faith is Amazing

I don’t know how to say this without sounding cheesy or without offending someone so I am just going to spit it out.. I did not choose God. God chose me. God must have been beside me all the time but I had never looked for him, thought about him or invited him in. This…

This post is for those interested in Faith and Religion.

(Which took me totally by surprise). I make an effort to do the…

Rick Warren, Money, Sobriety, Christianity, Life..

I am baring everything right now whether it makes sense or not..I am reading Rick Warren’s book ‘The Purpose Driven Life’, I love it and it triggers this urge within me to write and try and make sense of what I am feeling. In fact, this is what sobriety has been about for me; trying…

Stigma and Christianity in Sobriety

Why is there stigma attached to becoming a new Christian?

Maybe I have not totally accepted that I am walking a new…
