Re: Is it worth fighting still? - October 8th 2012, 07:27 PM

It is always worth fighting, always, and you are worth fighting for. However, you have to make the decision that you are worth fighting for recovery. It's not enough to want it. Fighting for it and striving for a SH-free, a drug-free, and and sexual impulsivity-free life requires finding what motivates you. That's something only you can discover for yourself. It's up to you to fight for yourself, because if you can't fight for yourself then no one else is going to.

It's a slow process. Sometimes there setbacks. But you can do it if you keep moving forward.

If you can, try eliminating or reducing the drinking and sexual impulsivity in your life. Those things only cloud your mind and spirit even more. To get through this, you need to be clear on what it is you want and stay focused on fighting, not finding other harmful alternatives to take the place of self-harm. That would be like giving up smoking two packs of cigarettes a day only to start going through a six pack of beer every day instead; one problem just replaces the other. It's hard to do, but it's the only way out; otherwise you'll keep yourself trapped with alternative negative coping skills.

Let's eat some spectral oats!
