Pardon me if I am not doing this correctly.


How do I know when it's time to move on ?

When I first admitted to myself that I was powerless to drugs and my life had already became unmanageable.  That my faults and problems were not gonna go away forever if I keep hiding them deep down within me.  And the more I feared my own fear and wasn't ready to face them then I will stay in my own shackles of addiction. I admitted to others I am ready for an honest to my higher power  change, only with his help would I be able to conquer my fear and succeed in an abstinence lifestyle.  I know it's time to move on because my body and my higher power tells me so.

It only gets worse before it gets better
