...and out of nowhere, The Force POUNDS The Dark Side!!!

HELL YEA! It's been a very rough battle these past few days, but the tables have turned as of this evening. I've been doing my psychological exercises to stay positive and harness the power of The Force. While writing in my journal, I came to the realization that I have been given a gift that, if used correctly, can overpower my demons every time. That gift is CREATIVITY! I've realized that I've been focusing WAY too much on my perceived shortcomings and getting away from reality through drugs. I can TRANSCEND reality and CREATE it! I'm fully aware that the battle will rage on, and this is not the end, but it's nice to see a victory on the good side. I'm determined to make that a growing trend. It's so strange. From that moment on, the rest of my day has fallen into place and been quite pleasant!

yep, i can vouch for that... i've had an alcohol dependence thing, but have managed to kick the habit for a couple of months now...

you're right though, creativity is a great way of overcoming the craving because your mind is so totally shifted to something new and exciting...

i wrote a series of posts beginning of this year about addiction and related issues, one i thought you might find helpful is this one...
