Denial But It's Not Mine
Has anyone in your recovery every questioned if you really were an alcoholic, addict, etc.? That can be dangerous if you have not totally accepted Step One. Even oldtimers might be convinced they are no longer addicted. This is about denial when you are not the person denying your addiction.
Addictions in Recovery
If you are a "real" addict, new addictions may enter your life more than you would like. Most of these are perfectly harmless and they will probably find their own end. Recognize them for what they are and take it easy.
The Best 12 Steps You Will Ever Take
As the almost last article of the year, I wanted to re-introduce one of my first articles. Some things don't change. Do you want or need a 12 Step Recovery Program? Here are a few reasons why it will be the best 12 steps you ever take.
Thanksgiving Every Day
12 Step recovery has given us a gift we never expected to receive. We've learned how to celebrate Thanksgiving every day of the year.
Crisis in Recovery
None of us can expect a life free of crisis. If our recovery is strong, we can meet life's challenges head on. It doesn't mean it will be easy but we will come out of it maintaining our sobriety.
It seems that if we have one addiction, there is always another lurking right around the corner. How do we deal with these and should we even try to get rid of all of them at the same time?
The List and Living Amends
No matter how many times we read and share about the 12 Steps, there is always something new. Sometimes it is just a new thought and other times it is a real awakening. More is always revealed to us.
12 Steps That Could Save Your Life
"12 steps that can save your life" by Barb Rogers is not just another book about the 12 steps. It is an opportunity to see the steps in action. This book is great for anyone who wants to refresh their sobriety and for newcomers who still aren't sure what the steps are all about.
Love and Resentments
Listing resentments in Step Four can be easy when there is anger or real dislike of a person. It can be very difficult when we have to look at the people we love who are supportive and in our lives today.
They are about the size of a half-dollar. The first few in various colors, the rest more solid. They are round pieces of metal. They have no monetary value but mean the world to those of us as we celebrate our hours, days, weeks, months, and years of sobriety.
