hope on 14 years ago
My husband is a disciple...unfortunately, he had relapsed many times during this time. He recognizes that he has a problem and make many attempts to recover, but he fails again.... He is an awesome man when connected with God. The relapses had made him loose hope. We don't have a CR ministry in the area that we are at...
I in the other hand had not been able to remain righteous when addressing his sin. What can I do...

In my opinion the best way to help someone to stay "smoke free" is to help them see that a drug is a drug is a drug. To make too much of the distinction between drugs can be harmful. Pointing a smoker to this site will help them with the root of their smoking: their addiction and thinking. The site helps us to renew our minds.

Hey Linda,
I have a success story for you to share with our sister:
by the grace and power of God, through our LORD Jesus Christ, I have been smoke free for 8 years now. One of my favotite motivational scriptures has been Titus 2:11-14.
Your brother in Christ,
John (from St. Louis)

Using the search bar brings up 28 articles that include smoking. Have you read through them? If so, what do you feel that you need specifically

In our group we have someone who is overcoming smoking. I don't really see much here about that. Are there any success stories out there I can share with this sister and her journey to stay smoke free. Thanks in advance

Hey JoeAnderson,
Good of you to stop by. Don't be a stranger.!lol

When asked a week ago to go to this site. I said I would. When asked this past Sunday if I did, my response was that I didn't. But before I could respond, the first word that came to my mind was "Addict". So glad to read through the site and experience these recovery encouraging statements and articles.

Hi Sparkiling,
Firstly, I admire the fact that you are not afraid to ask these questions. An addict, briefly defined is a person who uses a substance, experiences negative consequences, yet continues to use. How much or how often they use is not important to this definition. The negativity of the consequences may be felt either by themselves or by those around them as they may be oblivious to hurting others by their actions. Does this help?
sparkling on 14 years ago
question. I've been readying a lot of info, and i'm not sure where I stand. I mean I read stories of people doing lots of hard drugs for years and having years of drunken hazes; and for them I'm sure having the title of an addict is appropriate. However, what about the person who has used marijuana and alcohol on and off for a couple years and has managed to have several months with neither and really hasn't had any hard consequences? I'm i setting myself up to fail by not calling myself an addict or am I OK if i've had long periods of soberity?

Seems to me there's been something of a scam going on. We certainly didn't learn about this side of Lincoln when I was in school. On the contrary, we were routinely told how irreligious our historical leaders were. Lincoln like so many others I've been learning about seemed to be more of a christian than many of our contemporary Christian leaders. What else have they been hiding from us?

CR for teens, no, but if a teen is old enough to get high he needs to be in a room of adult addicts. No need for a specialized teen group.

Thanks vessel4him
It is tough to be a father, tougher to be a Christian father and even tougher to be a Christian father in recovery. Kudos to all you men out there. Make yourselves heard! You HAVE something to say.

The forum has been taken off-line until a bug has been resolved that is allowing hacking into it.
hmullan on 14 years ago
Just finished a massive upgrade to this site. You may see a few differences but not too many...yet.
The group locations is gone and we will be looking at a better way of presenting this in the future. If you see a bug or something unusual going on with the site, drop me a line on the Contact Us form. Thanks.
hmullan on 14 years ago
We are hoping to more messages in the near future.

What a time!! It was great having so many of you come to NY for the workshop. It was an honor to serve both you and our Father with the messages, encouragement and love that He first gave us. We are also very grateful to the NYC Church for paying for the event. I am working on the audio and video from the workshop and will have it posted asap. Thanks again everyone. smile smile
