Sobriety Takes Work
There is no cure for addiction yet the belief that prescription drugs work to keep the alcoholic sober is alive and well. It is not that easy.
How and Why the 12 Steps Work
Can a person be released from an addiction through self-help, psychiatry, or medication? Here are reasons how and why 12 Step Recovery programs have been successful for over 50 years. If you have already tried these steps and you feel they didn't work, try again!
Amends and Recovery
We say we are in recovery and yet every now and then we revert back to old behaviors. Are we focusing on recovery or just letting life happen?
When is Enough, Enough?
Everyone who wants to recover needs a sponsor. To sponsor is an honor but how long do you have to work with someone who doesn't seem to want it?
Is There Hope for Everyone?
Hope doesn't just happen. Hope is not a wish for something as much as it is taking action because you know there is something better out there. When did you discover hope for yourself?
Our Recovery Support
Recovery requires that we get some type of encouragement and support from our family and friends. The way you want that to happen is not always the way it works.
To The People That Matter
This is a personal message to all of you because throughout the last few years you have all been very important to me. God has certainly done for me what I could never have done for myself.
Most of our family and friends know of our addiction but how about those who don't? Who do you tell about your recovery? It's a personal decision but one we all must make.
Gambling, Prison, and Pain
A new gambling treatment center for women; connecting with a prisoner; and saying "no" to pain medication.
Fear and Resentments
We may be uncomfortable about our first attempt at Steps 4 and 5 but we know these are a "must". Yet, I have found that some postpone these because they are in fear that their resentments will be with them forever and the steps will have been done in vain.
