    I have a really hard time with this. I am clean nine days now. I am still going through some withdraws from opiates and have no energy and so working the steps have been kinda far from my mind lately. I just wanted to say that I feel so guilty sometimes like I don’t deserve God to take care of me, look at how much I have screwed up how could he love me again. I want a relationship with God I just don’t know how to get it!



    Welcome Ashleek!

    At nine days into detox I suggest you do just two things.

    1 don’t use
    2 pay attention

    Starting at step one with a sponsor will give you some relief. A thorough step one that includes reading the literature and writing about how it applies to you personally will put you right into step 2….each step, when taken without a minimum of concern leads right up to and prepares us for the next.

    I remember when I looked at various steps before I got to them, I got discouraged and projected all kinds of stuff that distracted me.

    For now just don’t use and start educating yourself about your addiction.
    Since you are in this forum I am going to assume you are willing to go to 12 step meetings, get a sponsor and take the steps….so…

    make some meetings

    and remember,

    1. don’t use
    2. pay attention




    I do want to go to meetings and get a sponsor. I am scared to do that because this is such a small town and the meetings here I just don’t know. I do want to work the steps and thankfully I fell upon this site. I needed this because I was starting to feel alone and a little scared. That little devil has been on my shoulder a couple of times but I just flicked him right off. Just be patient with me everyone and help me through these hard times. I appreciate any feedback, I need it!!
