    Her mother left with the priest when my wife was 17 in high school, her brother was 16. Her mom paid the rent for their 270 sqft apartment and saw them once a month when she wasn't "cleaning the Priest's house"....so you can imagine how traumatized my wife is over Catholic hypocrisy.
    WOW!!! That must have really sucked!!! I think that for a number of Catholic priests, their religion is merely a job to them. They get free housing, free medical, free meals, and it seems to end there for them. It isn't heart felt, nor sincere on thier part. Like you said...hypocrisy. Thats too bad. But one of the things I don't agree with about catholicism, is how they demand that their prists remain celibate, and forbid them to marry. What that does is that it not only makes it tougher on the Priests for no reason, (since the Bible does not forbid people to be married) but it also tends to draw lots of strange weirdos to become prists in the first place.

    Don't get me wrong, I once had a buddy who I also worked with who just wasn;t into women. He wasn't gay. He just prefered to remain by himself. He was perfectly normal and he was a real cool guyto hang around with. Him and I used to do some fishing. the guy was hilarious and always had a great sense of humor. So I know there are guys like that, but the Catholic church should not make that decision for their prists to remain celebate and unmarried. That's a decision that should be left up to the individual, not the church. As a result, that church gets a good number of homos and child molesters who become priests. While churches of other denominations allow their pastors to be married if they so choose.

    Well my wife made a good point when her mother wanted us to marry in a Catholic Church. You see, it requires 6 months of Catholic counseling. My wife asked, "Who in the Catholic Church is qualified to give marital advice to a couple when they can't marry?"

    Ayep!

    LOL...well the pastor/priests' job is to show the couple what the Bible says about the husband and the wives' responsibilities and roles are, (which BTW are different than what the world usually teaches and encourages now a days). So they can do that even if they were never married,(after all, the Apostle Paul was never married, although that was purely his choice and was not a dictated requirement given to him by any church, ad the Apotle Paul wrote well over half of the new testament of the Bible) but that would also require that they actually believe the Bible themselves,and that what they're teaching you is actually heart-felt, but if they're one of the weirdo homo/perv child molesters, (not saying all of them are) or one of the many who merely view the church as their employer alone, then why would you want to take any advice from them anyway?

    I fought this fight for years bro, keep your head up and just push forward. I do still once in a while have a few drinks, mostly one or two on the weekend watching football or something, if at all. At one point I was hammering down 4000 + calories of booze a day... life had taken a turn and really buried me into a dark place. The Gym saved me, and just the noticeable difference in my physique when I don't drink at all and eat clean really makes a difference. Stay Strong.

    Yes 4 weeks sober yesterday after a 3 week binge, after 6 months sober. I am tempted here and there but has not been hard to avoid. Might have a couple beers next weekend golfing with my Former Marine buddies, the Base Golf course opens at 07:00 as does the bar...never played golf with out beer. Its gonna be a real test. PLUS I honestly can't get drunk on beer, its too filling...too low in alcohol, but, its the temptation that it opens up lowering my inhibitions. I'f I just drank 3 beers over 18 holes, even IPAs, I'd be perfect to drive home, but if I grab a couple shots at the 8th hole watering hole....bam, next binge. I might just skip golf, can't hold the club right anyway since my injuries to my left hand, I actually threw my 7 Iron accidentally in front of my Director in Dubai 2 years ago...yeah maybe golfing is a double edged sword with both ends facing me ;-p

    Having been through this myself I can tell you that how big a deal you make it to yourself is how big the deal usually is.
    Just pick up where you left off if anything tangible hasnt been harmed besides pride just do better and you will feel better.
    Hanging on all those details isnt good at all .
    If you spend 3 days looking back on it it is 3 days you could've been doing something to prosper yourself.
    Just saying.

    I think a good point is made here^...but I also think that this has to be balanced with looking back just enough to understand what patterns a person can change, in order to avoid repeating the same mistake over and over again. For instance, if you keep hanging around the same driking crowd, then you'll keep on running into the same wall over and over. But the whole idea to look ahead and occupy yourself with something constructive is a good thing. It goes back to that old saying: "get busy not dizzy" and that's one of the reasons I like BBing. It takes sacrifice and devotion, and it's something constructive

    Don't put yourself into a situation where you are tempted. Why do that to yourself?

    Yep.
    Good attitude.
    Sometimes I find that I get depressed thinking I have to just get two foward every move.Not so, alot of us only get to advance one step at a time in life while some get three steps per move all foward.

    Been clean from meth (banging) almost 6 years. Have since bought a house, paid off a car note 10 months early and was blessed with 2 sons. Also been at the same job during those 6 years. Itís tough bro, I know. The key to any kind of recovery is a strong spiritual foundation. Without God in your life itís tougher than normal to get right. Pull the booze out and put God in. Stay in contact with a God of your understanding and youíll never go wrong. Love to you my friend.

    Love back at you. Its a hard road to go down but chose this when I was 13....I've dealt with a lot of Meth addicted felons, put a few hundred behind bars. I'm impressed with your turn at being Good to Go! Wish more of the kids into it got over it like you. Its all about the kids...my daughter is 6, doesn't need a drunk daddy reading Dr. Seuss...Sober is more fun!
