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.

"Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore"
"Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore", by Rachael Brownell is a sincere, heartfelt story of a alcoholic who like many of us, is a wife, mother, daughter and friend. Read this review and I am sure you will be anxious to follow her journey as you recall your own.
Disclosing our addiction personally may not be so difficult. Disclosing our addiction to health care providers should never be a problem but it can be. How can we be honest and protect ourselves when health and life insurance becomes an issue?
The Media and Addiction
Perhaps when we are in recovery we evaluate more closely how the media, particularly TV, addresses addictions. Fortunately, not everything is negative.
How Do You Pray?
We all understand the power of prayer in recovery. When things are good, prayer is easy. But when life takes a wrong turn focusing on prayer may be more difficult. So before another day goes by, ask yourself, "How do I pray?"
