Recovery gives us the freedom to make choices in our behaviors. How we choose to live the principles of the 12 Steps will determine the peace, happiness and serenity we want in our lives.
Thanks for Letting Me Be of Service
There are things we can do to be of service that are totally enjoyable. We all have talents that go beyond what we might believe we have to help others. Enjoy sobriety through service.
Being Human and Recovery
Not everyone in recovery has a kind and gentle nature. Our own human nature sometimes becomes dominant in our abiities to stay sober and to help others.
When Is Service Really Service?
We both need and want to help and to be of service. Every now and then we should examine our motives and our methods. It is never about us; or is it?
Expectations breed resentment because we place too much trust in another person. Try using confident expectancy instead. It keeps us focused and positive and the source is our Higher Power.
The Only Requirement Is....
12 Step Recovery programs do not have rules. It suggests the 12 Steps if we are serious about recovering. There is only one requirement to be a member of AA (and other 12 step programs)and no one but you can make that decision.
The Intervention Book
I have talked about my book before but have never actually written about what it is all about. Someone else has and I am delighted to have you read his review.
God is at the Meeting - A Book Review
A wonderful publication that focuses on alcoholism and Maurice C's journey through spirituality and the Twelve Steps. A treat for anyone in recovery!
A Letter to My Alcoholic Friend
All of us in recovery have had the experience of having a person we care about not be able to stay sober. This is a real letter to my friend. I hope he reads it. Please join me in praying for all of those out there who can't seem to find sobriety and the hope it offers.
An Awakening - A Book Review
When the self-help books are long gone, there is a desire to read about "us". After a period of time, we may want to step out of that recovery mode and read/meditate on the bigger picture of who we are today. "The Book of Awakening" by Mark Nepo may be exactly what you need.
