RE: Tempted to relapse......
Following the death of my beloved father in June I started to both bargain and have wistful thoughts about the supernatural thankfully they passed and I'm sure your thoughts will do the same.

I think that's very normal. I know when I am dealing with something, I sometimes catch myself thinking about praying. I don't of course, because my rational mind kicks in and I know that sort of thing is useless. I mean I might as well ask my diet coke can for help. Wink

You could try meditation in that case Jenny...

Yes, I meditate a lot, I'm a yoga instructor Tongue In my situation, the prayer thing isn't a desire to pray--it's a result of classical conditioning.

I'm so glad you're active here, again, Jennybee. You always brighten my day.

Just wanted to say that. Smile

RE: Tempted to relapse......
I still pray when I am extremely anxious about things. I just changed "god" to "fuck"... E.g., "Oh fuck, please let this not be an STD.... amen."

I just wanted to let you know that I love you even though you aren't naked right now. Heart
