Sometimes we feel completely lost. We feel like there is no God, no friend, nothing that can help us. We just can't figure it out. You don't even know when the suffering will end. As Lou Reed's song says: "You can't depend on your family, You can't depend on your friends, You can't depend on a beginning, You can't depend on an end...." At that time, we need to just have blind faith…even if you don't know what you have faith in.
When you feel lost, hopeless or totally overwhelmed, don't pick up the first drink or drug. Call someone in recovery as soon as possible. Hope will be restored because FAITH works. Repeat: "I have a busload of faith and I will get by."
