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.
Addiction damages every area of our lives. Total recovery involves learning about and repairing each of these areas. Our renewed thinking about addiction should flow into how we think about all things. Total recovery requires full disclosure.
We practice openness and honesty in all of our affairs. This practice lessens the chances that our addiction to drugs will not simply shift to an addiction to something else. In this way we can recover fully.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Romans 12:2 NIV)
