Is a Loved One Addicted?
Addiction affects the entire family. If you have an addicted loved one, especially one in denial, you must get help for you. This is an honest appraisal of addictive behavior that is important for you to know.
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?
It Works If You Work It
Everyone in a 12 Step recovery program attended a "first" meeting. Reflect what that time was like for you, where you are today and how you can help the newcomer.
Let It Begin With Me
When we begin a 12 Step recovery Program, either willingly or unwillingly, we come to accept Step One. That is the beginning. But it is our responsibility to help others. We can't wait. It has to begin with us; each one of us individually in some way.
Letting go is a simple process that brings peace to our day. Letting go and letting God is the pathway to freedom and is open to everyone. If only it were that easy!
Life On Life's Terms
The Big Book gives us an abundance of promises that come true if we work for them. One thing, though, no one can promise is a life without any problems. The hardest part of sobriety can be living life on life's terms.
Regardless of how long we have been sober, socializing and sobriety can test us. We have to remember that everyone has a choice and ours is to not pick up no matter how we feel.
There are a number of ways to lose our identities. Addiction is one of them. The solution, though, to finding our true selves again, is in working the Twelve Steps.
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.
Love is such an easy word to use. There are a lot of things we love; there are people we love. But do we love ourselves?
