Keep CR in place even if you don't meet sometimes, In Orlando FL we are meeting again starting April 16th, my journey involves 12 step programs I serve in, being an active Sub-c and homegroup member our CR ministry will be discussing issues like Denial, powerlessness and control. Haven't posted here in awhile, but my roots were planted in the NY CR ministry.
Hey all, hope all is well all over the world . Right now is the middle of the Corona Pandemic, we are having virtual CHURCH CR and NA meetings. If you need a meeting check on one the the CR websites or even an NA website. Here in Orlando I help manage the Orlandona.org and Orlandocr.com websites
not much action on the site lately, wanted to share a story. I graduated CR back in 1989 in NYC , been in FL last 26 years. Recently one of my rental houses was turned into a grow House, during my dealing with the cleanup I encountered much cannabis smell, plus found large bags full of it. (immediately turned into the local police or destroyed) , if not for God's power and being taught to obey (as in matt 28:20) from Cr I may have used during this situation. Thanks to the NYC CR ministry I am still standing. I have many photos of the house, hopefully my experience can helps others somehow.
To recover, I must be willing to make hard choices. I must accept my role in my addiction, not shifting the blame. I willingly abused drugs and alcohol. I must now be ready to do whatever it takes to totally recover.
No one can want my recovery more than me. Attempts to help me will prove futile if I am unwilling to change. The power to change comes from God but the willingness must be mine. With my willingness and God’s Power, I will recover.
I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. (Romans 7:18 NIV)
