today i celebrate seven years of abstinence. it includes, but is not limited to masturbation, sexual images, chocolate and added sugar. it also has a spiritual element in every night before bed i read the 'next' portion of the bible. i don't know that i've ever not done, and done anything for seven years straight before.
one day at a time linked together can truly make a difference. so just for today i am choosing to continue a constant contact with god, refrain from self stimulation and not withdraw into the world of craziness chocolate and added sugar brings to my life. just for today.
looking back at who i was seven years ago today i can hardly recognize myself. it seems like another life time ago.
