These are ideas and ways that I have come to understand the messages that 12 step recovery programs have to offer. We learn by sharing. We learn by “taking what we need and leaving the rest”. I have learned this along the path of my life not due to one particular person or event but to many. 12 Step programs are for more than alcoholics or drug addicts, they are for people whose lives have been touched by dysfunction caused by disease. This happens with caregivers of long term illnesses and terminal illnesses as well as for people with addictions and codependency issues. This is my way of giving back.
Daily Readings will not always be based on 12 step literature but will encompass the theme of one of the steps, slogans or quotes that these readings offer. In some instances there will be a quote or excerpt from them and a link to that literature will be provided.
It has been my experience that not everyone who wants to get out to meetings can, there are many that are afraid to go, and more still who may be out there thinking about it and don’t know where to start. I will be adding links to facilities, organizations and books along the way that have helped many people. Remember you are not Alone!
We are all, in a way, living with the effects of a diseased world. Let the healing begin...
