A Celebration Of Sorts
This is my own personal celebration but I couldn't be in this place without all of you. You have continually inspired me and have kept me steady on this road to recovery. I am blessed!
A Gratitude Reminder
As much as we fight it, human nature, jealousy and envy can make us forget what real gratitude is all about. Gratitude is not in what we say but in how we feel in our hearts and souls.
Our Children, Our Addiction
Our children may not acknowledge our addiction(s) because of their age or the situation. What we must understand is that when we are in our disease, we are not the only person being judged. Our children may suffer more than we know and it isn't about them.
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.
