Step 14
Ask God To Forgive You
Everyone must give an account of himself/herself to God. (Romans 14:12)

If we confess our sins to God, He is faithful and just and He will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all wrongdoing. (1 John 1:9)

As far as the east is from the west, so far has God removed my sins from me. (Adapted Psalm 103:12)

Therefore ask God to forgive you for doing all the bad things you did when you were engaging in the addictive behavior. To do this you can pray the following prayers:
Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to forgive me all my sins and cleanse me from all wrongdoing. (Adapted 1 John 1:9)

Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come and You will be done here on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever. Amen. (Matthew 6:9-13)

After you have prayed believe that God has forgiven you even if you do not feel forgiven.

To help you feel forgiven, you can pray, Father God I thank you because You are good and ready to forgive. You are also abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You (Psalm 86:5) like I do today and I thank You for forgiving me of my sins. 

Everyone must give an account of himself/herself to God Romans 14:12

As far as the East is from the West so far has God removed my sins from me Psalm 103:12

Free Bible based addiction recovery program Step 14 How to deal with relapses

How to Deal with Relapses
It is important to learn how to deal with relapses before your Quit Date so that if you experience them after you quit you can get over them quickly.
To deal with relapses successfully you have to:
1. Understand that they are common
Most people successfully quit addictions after several serious attempts. Therefore do not give up on yourself if you find yourself engaging in the addictive behavior after your Quit Date.
2. Analyze why it happened

Do not also waste your time and energy wallowing in self-pity parties. Instead, analyze why you begun engaging in the addictive behavior again to prevent reoccurrences in the future. You can do this by asking yourself the following questions:
Who did I engage in the addictive behavior with? How did we end up together?

Where did I engage in the addictive behavior? Why did I go there?

When did I engage in the addictive behavior? What was I supposed to be doing at that time?

Why did I engage in the addictive behavior?

How can I make sure that this never happens again?"

Answer these questions truthfully and put measures in place to ensure that you do not land in the same situation again.

3. Quit again

Forgive yourself and set a new Quit Date for that same day once you put the above measures in place.
