Cunning, Baffling, and Powerful
An addiction of any type can change our lives and the lives of others in many ways. Being in recovery can be bittersweet. We see the chaos and devastation of addiction but we can also see the importance in connecting with others in recovery.

Defects and Willingness
Are your defects the root of your addiction or are your defects the result of your addiction? It really doesn't matter. The solution to both is in willingness and our Higher Power.

Denial
Denial is what keeps most folks away from recovery. We work Step One and we admit we are powerless over our addiction. But what about that defect that won't go away? Is it really a defect or are we denying that it is another addiction?

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.

Deny and Enable
It is common for anyone in an addiction to be in denial. And where there is an addict, there is an enabler. But how long can someone stand by, deny and enable a loved one who is addicted. Who is sickest?

Divine Timing
No one can make a person recover from an addiction. The person must want it above everything else. There's more to it than that, though. It really is all about our Higher Power and Divine Timing.

Do Meeting Makers Make It?
The phrase is "meeting makers make it" but there is so much more to a 12 Step program. Seven meetings a week will not keep a person sober for long if they don't work a solid program.

Do You Have a Drinking Problem?
It is at times difficult to understand what constitues a drinking problem. Answering this questionnaire as honestly as you can may help you make the decision about your drinking habits.

Drug Addiction and AA
The meeting rooms of AA are not without controversial issues. The one that repeats itself often is sharing an addiction, other than alcohol, with the group. Some say AA means only alcohol; others disagree. The author has her own opinion. What is yours?

Dual Addictions
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?
