Some of you know this prayer very well. It means a lot to people, that have left the bad habit of drinking alcohol and all the huge problems such an addiction causes. I stopped this very last of my bad habits two years ago.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.

It was totally worth the challenge, the pain and the shame, which brought me to this point of my life and to this new me I am now. Actually I am astonished, how young humans could let such bad habits into their lifes. But hey, it has happened to me too and I stopped it, because it was just a waste of time, money and health. And I am very thankful to the message of the AA, although I never met them. Just through the messages of their members accross the internet I was able to face my problem and could solve it, because I learnt how to manage it.

And I am really, really thankful for being able to face the fact of the addiction and had the power to do something against it. I am thankful for this new me and would never ever go back to any addiction. I can only encourage everyone to do something against all these poisons that are overtaking your life. It is a hard way, but it is definitively worth it.

Except my internet-addiction of course :D

Peace out ღ to my friends @markwhittam @fatpandadesign and the big ones @stellabelle and @jerrybanfield

Good on you for overcoming all your addictions, I know how it feels to finally be free and there is no better feeling in the world, I used to think straight people were boring but I now realize life is much more enjoyable when you can remember it and not feel ashamed of yourself. Stay strong, stay clean, stay you :)
