Welcome to 12 Steps – Think About It!

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...

Ideas, suggestions and submissions for publication are always welcome and appreciated! Please let us know how we can serve each other better!

Please check back frequently as there will be quite a few updates in the next week! ;D

  5. Hi Adrienne,
    Thanks for stopping by the other day. Being the nosey type that I am, I just had to track back to here.

    It’s so very refreshing to see a dedicated site for the materials that so many of us so desperately need. I actually started an ODAT series precisely because I couldn’t find a site like this.
    You can be sure I’ll be here daily to read the newest posts.


    • I’m so glad that you found it Daniel! I’m thankful for the insights we share with each other. It is how the meeting I go to works. When I write I’m sharing, when I’m reading I’m learning! A
