WHY CAN'T I STOP?? ADDICTED TO DRUGS,
LAURA'S PLEA FOR PRAYERS


I have struggled with cocaine addiction for a long time and need Prayers for Recovery and a Renewed relationship with MY LORD JESUS CHRIST!


I am an addict of crack cocaine.Moved to my parents and tried to stay clean.Relocation is never treatment for disease.I used again.I disappear for 4-14 days using drugs.In bad places doing anything to get the next drug,not eating,sleeping or batheing. 24/7!I'm exhausted,have no more ways to get money or drugs,sick,and when not in jail,I return to my middle-class parents' home.I take ridicule,tears,disappointment,and depression,me AND my familyAGAIN> It's devistating to us. Hope,peace and freedom are foreign words in our me but for pain I caused my lovedones.CONTINUES.NEXT ENTRY>>

ThankGod I'm still alive.God's with me and he must have a plan.God never wants his child to continue to live/die in addiction.That's MYchoice.No matter how I say "I just can't stop".Man is given choices by God, God never expects us to go thruour pain alone.He is there for us and expects us to be for one another as long as we don't put ourselves in harms way.I know my loved ones feel harmed,hurt and pain I have caused.With serious counseling I need toget to the root of why I feel PAIN anduse drugs to escape. CONTINUES>>>NEXT ENTRYI can't look to God for healing if I don't cultivate my relationship with God and build my spirituality on a sincere,everyday basis.I need a recovery program to stick with NO MATTER WHAT.Recovery programs DO WORK butwith vigilence,honesty and FAITH.I know that they guarantee recovery if I follow suggestions and the path of other recovering addicts.Often families lose faith and hope,and are tired of being hurt,so they distance themselves as far aspossible.Tough love.Enabelers may be the only persons the feel still love them.It may helpthe addict,but addicts only feelabandonment, dispare,hopelessness.We don't love ourselves.Without my parents tolerating mefor many years,and I have only skimmed the surface here,I don't know where I would be.NA and GOD will not enable but continue to always be there until I can finally see for myself as well as my loved ones that it's ok to be an active part of my life, SOBER! I am only able to speak on what I have experienced and what has worked for me in the past.Recovery programs work if you stay with it. So why do I continue to use? I do not follow my own advice and knowledge.Like I don't want to quit,but there's NO successful addicts.Period.Please pray for me for answers to why I continue to do this.I know how to get recovery so what is my problem??

Laura,
I pray that God touch your heart and lead you in the direction that He showed me 4 years ago. I believe God has shown me your prayer request so that I may reach out to you and share with you what has been so freely given me. I am a recovering addict and alcoholic. I have been sober since November 20, 2003. My life has taken on a completely new meaning. I don't wake up wanting to die anymore. I don't wake up thinking of how I'm going to get my next fix. I wake up grateful that I am alive and that God has blessed me with yet another day of sobriety. I pray that you find peace and serenity. I pray that you feel the love from your Higher Power and trust that if you take His hand and walk with Him, He will show you a better way to live.
Heavenly Father, I ask that you give Laura the strength to walk through her fears. To ask for help. I pray that You help her find the willingness, Loving Father, to admit her powerlessness and surrender to You. I ask you this, Father, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
Much Love and Many Prayers,
Erika

Laura,
My prayers go out to you.
I believe that you will kick your addiction to this temptation. I cant give you a reason for not being able to stop,all i can tell you is you need to find all the strength in yourself and through Jesus with prayer. Once you have finally found Jesus and asked for his forgivness in your temptation and you believe with ALL YOUR HEART that you do want to stop will your answers be found.
I used to have an addiction not to crack cocaine but pot and only when I was finally faithful to my dear Lord and asked for forgivness was I finally able to stop my addiction.
I believe that you will find your answer in yourself, stay strong keep praying and stop accepting the devils temptation for he has made you weak and he only wants you to join him with your sin. Only YOU can stop this.
JUST BELIEVE!!!
All my Prayers,
Sally

Dear Lord, I'm not sure of Lauradeanie2005's current situation, but You know. I do hope that she is still alive and trying to keep clean. She needs You and acknowledges that she's addicted to drugs. When she wrote her prayer circle she was at her wits end. Strengthen her will and courage to continue saying "no" to drugs. Help her to re-build her self-esteem and find things to do that she's passionate about. Please pour out Your blessings on her and her family, protect them from harm. Show them Your love, comfort them. Thank you Lord. I pray this in Jesus' name, amen.

I have the same problem and am struggling very much with my addiction. I often ask myself the same question "Why can't I stop?" It's tormenting! My prayers are with you as I hope I will be in yours as well.
