Congratulations on your continuing recovery.
Addiction is a very deceptive thing. Most of us, more often than not, switch addictions not give them up. Hence the statements "some addictions are better than others".
The answer is admitting powerlessness and submitting our lives to a "Higher Power".
It is very difficult because we as humans are very prideful and western culture in particular is very "self sufficient".
As I have found and am finding sufficiency in my Higher Power the easier it is to recognize my weakness and trust in His power.
While developing self discipline is very important to realize that that self discipline is no substitute for "powerlessness", or what I acknowledge as submission to a Higher power.
To acknowledge that this is also part of the path He has chosen for my benefit and aligning myself to that plan and increased my serenity over wondering "why this and why me?"
