Self Made Wounds

We will fight against anything or anyone that hurts us. We march and pray against any and everything that threatens to harm our way. Trouble has trouble if it doesn’t see things in a certain way. Yet with all these things we try to make juice from rotten fruit. We then still will look into the mirror of hurt and can’t help ourselves. So Jump Thru Darkness and when you look into the mirror remember it’s about saving you. Saving you from your addictions and the self made wounds…..JTD

Church Shouldn’t Cause You To Relapse….

Sometimes it’s hard to know what the next move is when you decide to change your life. Like if you love church every church is your church but picking just one can be hard when you are a people person. When working your sobriety picking a church can be hard and even sometimes send you into depression. If you leave a church for another are you wrong. I’ve decided to do an online bible program because my addictive mind seems to give me emotions as an recovering alcoholic that I can’t handle. I guess that’s that same issue many of you have with Sundays. But I Jump Thru Darkness and make sure my sobriety is in line with what I need to do in life. Cause not being able to make a decision about what church to go to shouldn’t have you to the point of relapsing. So continue to read your bible. Listen to preaching online and remember that if you relapse church will be the last thing on your mind. So hang on to your sobriety always no matter what and you’ll be fine……JTD

Sad Most Of The Time…

Yeah truth is we are sad most of the time. That’s why we drink to hide the sadness. Yeah we are sad most of the time. That’s why we get high so we can’t think about the sadness.

Caring For Yourself Should Be Easy Right…

Living life to the fullest is an easy statement to say. You could be rich or poor and never really get to live life to the fullest. Drinking and drugging gives you that quick feeling of life fulfilling emotions. So when you hit rock bottom you should want to get up right. When your house is dark you should want to turn on a light. When life puts you down you should want to stand up for yourself right. When you so bad on drugs you can’t remember what thinking feels like. Or you drink so much you can’t remember what water tastes like. Makes you wonder and it should make you want to Jump Thru Darkness and explain to yourself your life. Because if fulfillment in life is an emotion from drinking or getting high. Then caring for yourself should be easy right……..JTD

Are You Giving Yourself Your Best Effort….

Let me guess you rather earn your sobriety by yourself. Don’t need anyone to tell you anything. Sounds like the ways of an addict to me. Oh and I know with my one drink one man world type of mind. But it’s kind of like religion we all have sat around and got into great debates about what the bible says. Only thing is most of the people in that debate never really read the bible cover to cover. Most learned what they know from what they heard someone else say. Do you want your sobriety to be that way? How much time and effort would you give for your sobriety. Jump Thru Darkness and make a list. A list of how much money you would spend. A list of how much time you would give. Then make a list of all the things you did to get what you wanted in your addictions. Now look at both lists and ask yourself this question. Are you giving yourself your best effort……..JTD

Fighting Yourself And Still Lose…

You be determined to stay sober and clean. You made a plan no more clubbing on the weekend. You drive fast past the liquor store looking the other way.

Fighting For Your Smile (Addictions )

Remember sitting and eating pickles with a soda. Remember pickle eggs and now and later candy. Remember how having a crush on someone felt. Remember smiling if that person said yeah.

Knowing What’s Good

Most people look and smell anything and everything before they put it in their mouths. We look at meat in stores like we picking a lover. It has to look right, be smelling the package to make sure it smell right. Eyeing the price to make sure it’s worth all that, just like dating. But when it comes to our addictions do we really know what’s good. If you had a bad batch of beer or liquor how would you know? I bet you never ever checked the expiration date on a beer can or liquor bottle. You put it in your mouth and don’t even know where it came from or what it’s made of, true talk. Never truly knowing what you are putting in your mouth. So Jump Thru Darkness and stop putting yourself down for those over the top actions of a drunk. You and no one else can explain the ways of an alcoholic. Cause no one can truly explain the drinks of an alcoholic. Yeah I’m sober now but I still won’t pick up a drink to read the label. I’m not that strong to be saying I can just hold one Can in my hand. If I asked myself would I drink it. I would have to say I probably would. Know how far you can go and think about the unknown that you put in your mouth. Cause it’s the same unknown for the rich up on the hill and the corners down in the hood. But for what it’s worth Jumping Thru Darkness for Sobriety is Knowing What’s Good…….JTD

Why Do All Hangovers Leave You Alone…

Well I would ask if you ever been drunk or high. But you should never have to ask a chicken does it know how to lay an egg. Just one thing, have you noticed that most hangovers appear when we are alone. Is it trying to tell us that we have no one to blame but ourselves as we look around our empty room. Even if someone is there we really don’t want to talk or look at them. Secretly feeling like if they loved us they would have stopped us before we had one too many. Who are we kidding we liked that painful, aching, ailment, affliction, vomiting, gagging, nausea, indisposition, leaning on the bed feeling. But why are we often left alone to deal with all that. Let’s Jump Thru Darkness and think about that. Is it showing us a lonely future if we carry on. Or is it saying in the end even the empty bottle finds a garbage can so it can roll on. Maybe it’s saying after the party all that’s left is pain for the dumb. Because in our era being less than one hundred percent will lead you to a bottomless pit of addictions. So if you won anything in life remember to win your sobriety as well. Cause if you don’t the next lonely hangover you wake up with can be in jail or hell…….JTD
