    Hey in all honesty I fucked up last night I slipped and used yet again,I dont understand why I would do that to myself I was on a good routine after I had first posted my confession about relapsing, I had went hiking to the gym but I'm just going to jump back in the cycle of sobreity and good health and not feel guilty.thank you for your good vibes brotha

    No judgment here, @Its_kev. In fact, I admire your being honest with us. Recovery isn't a straight line, and it's about progress, not perfection. Keep trying, my friend. As I always say, if you mix willingness and hope enough times, you can accomplish anything...including long-term sobriety.

    We're here for you anytime you need us. Don't hesitate to reach out and lean on us for support, okay?
